OX and Pig having a Tiger Boy 2022 (1 Reply ) Asked by B***g

Our surname is 鄧 and 天 is the generation middle

I'm an Earth Tiger (Aquarius), am I compatible with a Fire Ox (male Aquarius)? (4 Replies ) Asked by E***o

I'm pretty much carefree, introvert, and a hopeless romantic. I prefer dominating men too and based on my research, Fire ox men tend to be like that. I do enjoy my "me" times but I'm very loyal to those who are close to me. Never have I broken a relationship/friendship. Its always me who gets cut off and I am definitely not the type who would cheat. I wonder if this appeals to a Fire Ox male? Ox and tigers aren't well compatible according to the Chinese Zodiac. Aqua x Aqua works they say.
