Chinese Zodiac - Tiger
Occupying the 3rd position on the Chinese Zodiac, the Tiger symbolizes such character traits as bravery, competitiveness and unpredictability. Tigers love to be challenged and will accept any challenge if it means protecting a loved one or protecting their honor. They don’t worry about the outcome because they know they’ll always land on their feet. Don’t let their calm appearance fool you though; Tigers will pounce when they feel it’s necessary.


Born to lead, Tigers can be stubborn if they realize they’re not in charge. They have a slight tendency to be selfish but overall, Tigers are extremely generous. They’re very intelligent and they’re always on alert. Tigers are very charming and are well-liked by others. They are not motivated by money or power.

Dude, I like money.

As they do their enemies, Tigers have a tendency to pounce on their work. Afterwards, they’re left feeling exhausted. Although they’ll soon bounce right back, over time this approach can cause problems with their health. Tigers need to develop a more balanced approach to life so they can utilize their energy more efficiently.

Oooh, balance. I like balancing. Except for my checkbook.

Tigers have a continual need to be challenged which may explain why they jump from job to job. This isn’t necessarily a problem because they’re smart and able to quickly master new subjects. The best jobs for Tigers are those that will lead them towards positions of leadership. Some suitable careers for Tigers include: advertising agent, office manager, travel agent, actor, writer, artist, pilot, flight attendant, musician, comedian and chauffeur.

Actor? Writer? Comedian?: sure. Advertising agent, maybe. Since when is a chauffer a position of leadership?

Creative in their passion, Tigers will never bore their partners. They’re expressive, polite and trustworthy, but watch out. Tigers tend to dominate their relationships. This tendency is instinctive and when monitored closely, such behavior can be kept under control. Partners need to be equally active to keep up with the Tiger’s sense of adventure.

Dominate the relationship? I don't think that's ever been one of my traits. And I've been known to be boring.

Hey, look! We're incompatible! (I'm an Ox.) Heh.

Well, I'm a Taurus. I suppose that means I'm incompatible with myself.

Jillian is an Ox. Looks like one, too.

This explains everthing.

Re: Incompatibility
I almost just deleted this one, but I wanted to address a couple of things.

First, I like Jillian. Saying that she looks like an ox is an insult that pisses me off and is totally uncalled for. I find her attractive and always have.

Our compatibility issues had nothing to do with the Chinese zodiac. The short end of it is that she wasn't really attracted to me physically, and as much as we tried to ignore that, it was a gulf that kept widening. Knowing that she found me repellent but was trying to ignore it wasn't something that I could handle: I don't want to be with someone who doesn't want to be with me, completely and wholly, because the alternative breeds resentment like a cancer.

Jillian is a fine, attractive woman who deserves to be happy. I hope that she finds it.
