Cuddling can be quite an enjoyable experience. That is if the Capricorn man wants to cuddle in the first place.
So Capricorn men do like to cuddle, but it’s not something that they are always wanting to do. And if they do want to cuddle, it has to be with someone who is very special to them.
Let’s talk more about the Capricorn man when it comes to having a cuddle buddy.
How Do Capricorns Cuddle?
Capricorns cuddle only when their heart is involved. In a world where many people quickly jump into sex with other people they barely know, getting into affectionate cuddling is a loaded step in a relationship for Capricorn men.
Since they are already known to be very reserved with expressing their feelings, and would rather focus on work and achieving their goals in the outside world, allowing themselves to cuddle or be cuddled by someone means they are starting to really care about that someone.
Cuddling requires easing into more trust, more vulnerability, in letting yourself hold someone or be held by someone than it is to just engage in the physical act of sex. Sure, Capricorns are sensual and earthy, like any earth sign. A rare Capricorn might even go through a “sowing their wild oats” phase just for the physical pleasure and goal-achieving aspects of it.
Generally, though, they hold in the full force of their sensuality and earthiness until they find a worthy object of their affection and passion. Since Capricorns value security and stability, they want to make sure first that their heart is safe enough before they will cuddle you.
Do Capricorns Like Being Touched?
Not really. Especially if it’s a surprise, and therefore unwelcome, touch. They have a need to know what’s coming, and they want to feel safe around you before they will allow themselves to be touched.
They are known to be very private and even cold to most people, needing a secure space to be themselves in. So, any touchy-feely show of emotions would, at best, make them feel awkward. At worst, they would avoid you like the plague.
Capricorns like to control how things unfold, and your impulsively touching them more than once (okay, once can be accidental, their Capricorn mind would reason it out) is a breach of their control and an invasion of their very private space.
They also like taking their time, so they hope you do the same. If you want to move into the touching phase of your relationship, even if it’s only affectionate touching, go slow, and let them initiate it.
Before they can be touchy with you, they need to be feely first. You’ll know he’s starting to care about you when your Capricorn man starts touching or holding you.
Do Capricorn Men Need Affection?
Of course, they do, like any human being! They just show it differently than through physical touch and expect to be shown it differently than through physical touch, too, until they feel safe with you and let you in more.
Capricorn men actually value relationships, family, tradition, and quality connections of substance not just form. So, for them, all good and quality things take time, and should not be rushed. This is how you separate the glitter and bling from the truly valuable. So, in matters of the heart, go slow and gentle, until your value to him and his value to you is proven.
If you want to show him affection, match how he shows you affection, but do not outpace him. How people show affection is actually how they also expect to receive affection. So, when you match him, you’re fulfilling his need for affection in the way he expects to receive it.
For example, if he likes assisting you with chores (acts of service), then perform acts of service for him, too, like supporting him in his work in the ways he needs support (ask him in what ways). Remember, too, a Capricorn man is a man of action, so acts of service would probably be a high-value love language for him.
Capricorn Man Wants To Cuddle: What It Means
So, you’ve waited for him, observed what his love language is, and matched it when you wanted to show him affection. Then, one day, he begins lightly touching you, as if innocently.
Soon, he puts his arm around your shoulder or your waist. Eventually, he starts cuddling you, in brief, shy hugs at first. What does it mean?
First, especially if you’re the touchy-feely type, don’t go unleashing yourself on him at his first caress. Don’t go finally releasing all your pent-up affection on him by embracing and kissing him! That would scare him off. Again, match, but do not overtake him. So, touch him back lightly, too, when and where it’s appropriate.
Next, just observe him and whether his touching turns into a pattern that progresses in time. Remember he likes to control and lead; it makes him feel more of a man.
So, let him lead, and just respond accordingly to his leading, indicating whether you like or do not like his initiatives. That is where your power lies as a feminine: to accept and approve, or to decline and disapprove, and let the man take it and act accordingly.
Speaking of femininity, Capricorn men generally like their women emotionally strong and capable yet also ultra-feminine. This is what a high-value woman is for him.
Finally, understand that when your Capricorn man is moving towards more physical touches and eventually wants to cuddle you, it could likely indicate only one thing, he has let you into his heart.
He feels for you now and wants to get even closer through physical touch. When he cuddles or spoons you, he’d probably prefer to be the cuddler and spooner rather than the cuddled and the spooned, as this satisfies his need to feel manly and protective. Let him, and relax into his embrace, at last.
Bottom line, if you want to cuddle and snuggle with your Capricorn man, your relationship has to already be strong, stable, and long-lasting (or moving towards it). Otherwise, he’ll probably not cuddle with you just yet.
So, focus on nurturing and enriching the other aspects of your relationship first, as well as your own life. He’ll appreciate and value you more that way. And when it’s time to finally touch and cuddle, it’ll be worth the wait.
