Born in 1924, 1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008, 2020
People born under the Rat sign are kind and honest in relationships, but they tend to be stubborn in some ways. When it comes to love, they crave security the most and are fond of getting unexpected surprises from their partner. They tend to be very intense when starting a relationship and become more sensitive and prone to jealousy as time goes by.
Ideally, Rats would always pursue a relationship that’s “perfect” but they’re aware that it’s impossible to strive for perfection. Because of this, they should strive harder to manage their expectations and be more trusting with their partners.
Most compatible with: Dragon, Rabbit, Ox
Least compatible with Goat, Horse, Rooster
Born in 1925, 1937, 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009, 2021
People born in the Year of the Ox are simple, honest, practical, and down-to-earth. Once they start a relationship with someone they love, they’ll always go out of their way to keep them and please them to the best of their abilities.
They aren’t always great with expressing their feelings, however, but people tend to be attracted to their sincerity and loyalty. Oxen should strive harder to be more passionate and romantic if they want to keep their partners longer.
To nurture a relationship with someone under this sign, never fail to show your sincerity and reciprocate their devotion wholeheartedly.
Most compatible with: Rat, Snake, Rooster
Least compatible with Dragon, Horse, Goat, Dog
Born in 1926, 1938, 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998, 2010, 2022
Usually independent, those born in the Year of the Tiger tend to want to take the reigns of the relationship and steer it to a direction that suits them the most. They’re bossy and possessive, but they love fiercely and passionately. They’re not afraid to tell you that they love you and they always put their partners at the center of their life.
However, people under this sign would often choose their careers over pursuing love and tend to lose their passion after the honeymoon stage. They will need to learn not to fall in love with the initial thrill of new love and be prepared to put in the effort to keep the relationship afloat.
To nurture a relationship with a Tiger, it’s best that you are dedicated to your career too and share the same interests as they do.
Most compatible with: Horse, Dog
Least compatible with Snake, Monkey
Born in 1927, 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, 2011, 2023
People born in the Year of the Rabbit are characterized to be oversensitive, impulsive, and emotional in their relationships. They pursue love bravely but tend to fill their heads with doubt and worry. Because of this, they’re often fragile and unconfident with themselves. They dislike conflicts and are constantly scared that the love they have with someone will fade away. On the other hand, once they decide to break up with someone, they rarely ever change their minds about it
Their frequent uncertainties in a relationship make them depend too much on their partners, which can lead to their partners becoming overwhelmed or tired. People under this sign must learn how to be more confident with themselves and have trust in their partner so that they can have a happy and fulfilling relationship.
Thus, to nurture a relationship with Rabbits, be persistent, be their source of strength, and care for them when they are at their lowest.
Most compatible with: Goat, Dog, Rat, Pig
Least compatible with Ox, Dragon, Rooster, Horse
Born in 1928, 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000, 2012, 2024
People born in the Year of the Dragon are unpredictable and adventurous, and their courage is what attracts people to them the most. The kind of people that appeals to them, meanwhile, are those who are independent, insightful, and openminded, as well as patient enough to tolerate their need to dominate a relationship. Despite their domineering qualities, they tend to be rather stubborn, refusing to admit that they like someone when they actually do.
Money and career, however, are especially important to Dragon people who, at their core, long for a peaceful and stable life. Because of this, they are inclined to overthink and judge a person thoroughly before committing to them. They need to be taught how to look past financial wealth and boldly pursue love without thinking about the consequences.
To nurture a relationship with someone under this sign, don’t take their “cool” demeanor at face value and understand that they are just struggling to express their emotions. Have faith in them and just smother them with love!
Most compatible with: Rat, Monkey, Rooster
Least compatible with Dog, Ox, Rabbit
Born in 1929, 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001, 2013, 2025
Don’t be fooled by Snake people; they may act indifferently towards you, but they’re actually very passionate about love. No matter how calm and rational they are, they can get flustered and act childish once they’re romantically involved. They express their emotions through acts of service and often want to be the one who takes care of their partners in the relationship. They will go out of their way just to make their partner feel happy. In return, they expect to be given a sense of comfort and security.
People born under this sign are easily upset by situations in their surroundings, though, and are susceptible to their partner’s every move. This makes them pretty strict in their relationship. However, it will take a lot for them to change how they feel about you. To nurture a relationship with a Snake, shower them with love and affection to show them that you care.
Most compatible with: Ox, Rooster
Least compatible with Tiger, Pig
Born in 1930, 1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002, 2014, 2026
Those who are born in the Year of the Horse are pretty popular because of their charisma and optimism. In their relationships, people under this sign are usually unafraid to say what’s on their mind so that problems won’t blow out of proportion. They rarely fight to stay in a relationship that doesn’t work anymore and will move on to another.
They like to feel free in a relationship and prefer to take the lead. However, they risk becoming too controlling. They may try to impose their own ideas on their partners in an attempt to keep control of the relationship, unaware that this is unhealthy and that they should give their partners the freedom to do what they want to do too.
At their best, though, Horses love passionately and sincerely and they bring optimism into their relationships. To nurture your relationship with someone under this sign, enjoy their company genuinely and counteract their strong personality with gentleness.
Most compatible with: Tiger, Goat, Dog
Least compatible with Rat, Ox, Rabbit, Horse
Born in 1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003, 2015, 2027
Those born in the Year of the Goat are characterized as calm, gentle, kind-hearted, and sociable. They are very communicative of their thoughts and feelings in a relationship and appreciate it when their partner communicates their own thoughts and feelings as well. They don’t like it when problems are dragged on for too long and would rather solve them right away.
People under this sign also express their love sincerely and patiently and they work hard to keep their lovers spoiled and happy. However, this can easily turn into stubbornness when they choose to stay in a particularly bad relationship no matter how much it hurts them.
If you’re in a relationship with someone under this sign, you should love them wholeheartedly, maintain open communication, be open to compromise, and stay devoted to them 100%.
Most compatible with: Rabbit, Horse, Pig
Least compatible with Rat, Ox, Dog
Born in 1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004, 2016, 2028
Those born in the year of Monkey are cheerful, optimistic, and are great in dealing with people. They tend to hold love with great importance and are all about giving grand gestures of romance. They’re very persistent with love too and will do whatever they can to win someone’s heart.
However, people under this sign don’t like to be held down by their partners. They want to be free to do what they want. Once they feel at all constrained, the fires of their love can grow dim and they can become cold and distant. Thus, trust and open communication are needed to maintain and nurture a relationship with Monkeys. Once you’re able to have that, your relationship will forever be full of fun and excitement!
Most compatible with: Rat, Dragon
Least compatible with Tiger, Snake, Pig
Born in 1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005, 2017, 2029
People born under the Rooster sign are known to be easy-going, resourceful, hardworking, brave, and decisive. They are passionate and romantic when it comes to love and can always promise security and stability to their partners.
However, their biggest weakness in relationships is controlling their pride. They don’t like being wrong in arguments and going out of their way for their partners. If someone under this sign willingly takes a blow to their self-esteem and gives everything up for you, then you’d know just how seriously devoted they are to you.
They tend to be self-centered too, appreciating praise and compliments from their lovers. To nurture a relationship with someone under the Rooster sign, shower them flattery!
Most compatible with: Ox, Dragon, Snake
Least compatible with Rabbit, Rooster, Dog
Born in 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006, 2018, 2030
People of the Dog sign are honest, sensitive, devoted, and very loyal to their partners. They believe that sincerity is the way to someone’s heart, although they may have a hard time expressing it. They also tend to fall in love at first sight without knowing much about the person and this is what often gets them into bad situations.
People under this sign are also idealistic when it comes to love and they’re inclined to look for someone who can match their high expectations. But no relationship is perfect, and these people must learn that they can’t pressure their partners to change for their benefit.
To nurture a relationship with a Dog person, don’t take advantage of their loyalty because they will always go to the ends of the earth for you.
Most compatible with: Tiger, Rabbit
Least compatible with Ox, Dragon, Goat, Rooster
Born in 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007, 2019, 2031
People born in the Year of the Pig are known to be good-natured, generous, and conservative. They prefer the simple life and are more pragmatic in a relationship, working hard to nurture it and make it last. However, they tend to be passive in love and would rather take things slow. If they feel at all that they are being rushed to commit to many things in a relationship, they will shrink back and may fall out of love instantly.
Their biggest hurdle with love is that they lack confidence in themselves and are always unsure whether they can be able to win the heart of someone they like. But when they are deeply in love, they are generous with their affections, will spoil their lovers, and will protect them with their lives.
To nurture a relationship with someone under this sign, you’ll need to win their love with passion, patience, and trust and promise them stability and security. Take care not to rush them too much.
Most compatible with: Goat, Rabbit
Least compatible with Snake, Monkey
