Asking for someone's sign may be the cheesiest pickup line ever, but there is something compelling about using the zodiac to help guide you through a sometimes murky love life. I mean, it's fun to think our "person" has already been picked for us, right? So if the monthly zodiac is boring you, I suggest trying another method before giving astrology the cold shoulder. Learning who the best partner is for you, based on the Chinese zodiac, can help you see your dating life through a different lens. I mean, that can't hurt, right?
What is the Chinese horoscope, exactly? According to Travel China Guide, the Chinese zodiac is made up of a 12 year cycle, in which each year is represented by a particular animal. Certain characteristics, strengths, and weaknesses are said to correspond to each animal. For instance, those born in 1987, the Year of the Rabbit, are said to be friendly, serene, and classy, according to ChineseZodiac.com. Not sure of your sign?
