I was really surprised the other day wnen I found out my daughter (25 yrs old) had turned down a date from a guy because he was the wrong zodiac sign. I know the Chinese zodiac is payed close attention to in many Asian countries including China, Japan, Korea, and Viet Nam, though I don't know whether the Philippines is included in that list. I'm just curious whether any of you have found compatability or incompatability in wives, exes or fiances. By the way, the Chinese New Year is about the first of February, so if your birthday is in January, your sign is the one the year before your actual western year. For instance if you were born in January of year of the Ox, you're actually a Rat. By the way, I'm a Sanke and my wife an Ox. (I didn't know about this until after we were married.)

Rat.....1900 1912 1924 1936 1948 1960 1972 1984 1996    Compatable: dragon & monkey    Incompatable: horse

That's 32 plus years married, that means I'm not looking for a wife.  I just enjoy reading all that's going on and I don't post very often.

Jeff,
 Since myself and Melly fit together so well, I can't argue with this stuff.   I'm a Rat and she's a Dragon.   The obvious fallacy in it all is that it assumes all  people born in a given year are the same.   Hmmmmm Smiley

Hello Jeff

Yes both  Kevin and  I  are Snake Eyes too (he  is  1 day older than me you  might recall)  I guess  we  are  all just  a  bunch  of  Snakes  in the  grass  right?  ha ha ha ha  

Obviously  I  don't  know  who I  am  compatable  with  yet.  They  say  Taurus's  are  compatable  with  Virgo  blah  blah  blah  but  I  don't  take  much  stock  on  it  either  way.

However   when  I  started  writing  with a  Japanese girl named  Motoko (Koko) She  asked  me  what  my blood  type  was.  My coworkers  and  I discussed  this and  I thought  What, is she  some  kind  of  Vampire?  I still don't  understand the meaning of  this.  But you will notice it  listed  on my web site (that I hope  to release  tonight). I  figured  beter  safe  than sorry  if it  means  so much to  the  other person.  My former  Chinese  coworker  also believed in  this  hocus  pocus.

Koko was living  in  San Fran a  couple  of  years ago.  I  subsequently  flew  out from Boston  at  the  time to  meet her  but  it  didn't  click between  us  and  I lost track  of  her  --- too bad


Windmill Boy


PS  I  worked  so  much  the night  before  that  I  almost  slept through the  Millenium hoopla / let down.  However  I  was  in Chinatown in Boston a  couple  of  months  later  by  chance.   I was fortunate and I caught  some  of  the  Chinese  new year  celebrations   ---  what  a  blast --- literally (the  streets  were all covered in red  from the  firecracker  paper) ha ha ha.

About blood types, perhaps she was concerned about the Rh factor in a potential marriage.  I vaguely recall something about Rh+ and Rh- being a bad mix and if a fetus has the wrong factor compared to the mother's blood, it makes for a very dangerous pregnancy.

I've never heard of anything to do with compatibility based on the A,B,AB, and O blood types.  I might have this mixed up, but I think that southeast Asian people are more likely to have B blood, whereas the greater portions of Caucasians are type O.

Another thing too.  This baffled the doctors when my ex was first here and had a blood test.  The doctors were concerned because her blood was slow to clot (about 1 minute compared to 20 seconds for a normal person).  They had her take some tests including one for lupus, thinking that there had to be some underlying disease.  No disease was detected.  Later I learned, or read somewhere rather, that the characteristics of my ex-wife's blood is probably more genetic in that it's not all that uncommon in Southeat Asia.  Simply speaking, doctors in America aren't necessarily trained regarding such exotic peculiarities.

Interesting  Kevin

But  I don't think  it  was so much  a  scientific  thing  though. I  think they  assign  personality  traits  and  compatability factors to the  Blood  types somehow.  I  told  Weiling  my former coworker  that  I  am  O neg (universal Doner)  and  she  said  oh  that  is  good  my  ex  boyfriend  was  also  an  O  blood  type.  Who  knows  though.  Maybe  Jeff  and  Mariko  can  shed  some  light  on  it.

I'm a Snake, Sally's a Dragon.  We're neither incompatible nor compatible.  She's supposed to be compatible with a monkey or a rat.  It could have been worse; she could have been compatible with a Tazmanian Devil --- that's Humabdos -LOL!

Hey Huma, when is your birthday? I can't imagine that you would be a sheep Shocked)

Doan and I are dragons and snakes, respectively.
This means we are not particularly compatible as far as Lunar horoscopes go. When we married,the day was set and decided on by reference to the horoscopes. Hopefully this has negated our lack of good compatibility.

I'm a Taurus and my ex-wife is a Sagittarius.  I've often heard that a Taurean and a Sagittarian is the worst possible match, but didn't take horoscopes to heart.  Taurus is an earth sign and likes his ground and his security.  Saggitarius is the sign of fire and has a very unstable, impatient type of personality and easily gets bored.

Wheen getting divorced, my ex pointed out how incompatible we were and how we were a bad match.  I have to admit now that I'm reluctant to get involved with anybody who is a Saggitarius. (My friends wife is very knowledgeable about horoscopes and has illuminated a few things regarding that subject).  On the other hand, horoscopes, relying on them for decisions regarding courtship, aren't 100% accurate.

Well, there must really be some merit behind the cliche referring to a volatile relationship, "a May-December Relationship".

Me: apr 26 1964
him: feb 26 1970
Thai is a little superstitious, I guess. Be believes the #26 is very lucky for us.I recieved my 2nd noa 26 days after the 1st one. He recieved packet #3(?) on oct 26th. As you can see our b-days are both on the 26th. He swears when we get approved for him to come here it will be on a 26th day. I don't know, I just look at him and say to myself "How Sweeeeet!!" I don't know, but when we were together I sure felt like I was 26 again :-)
MAN I MISS HIM!!!!!! This waiting is really getting to me. It is especially hard after we chat together.

A Taurus-Pisces is supposed to be a good match.

You were right - you're a Dragon and he a dog: I gave you your characteristics below. For the Dog: Loyal and honest, yet works well with others. Generous but a bit stubborn and sometimes selfish.

Most Asians I've met are pretty superstitious about one thing or another. Hopefully, you'll get his approval on the day after Christmas (the 26th!)

All the best
