Tiger people are sensitive, given to deep thinking, capable of great sympathy. They can be extremely short-tempered, however. Other people have great respect for them, but sometimes tiger people come into conflict with older people or those in authority. sometimes Tiger people cannot make up their minds, which can result in a poor, hasty decision or a sound decision arrived at too late. They are suspicious of others, but they are courageous and powerful. Tigers are most compatible with Horses, Dragons, and Dogs

But Tigers and Dogs get along well together.
That's one of the reasons Tony and I get on so well together. :)

This is going to be a better year for me. :wink: and for him too!

You mean you don't think I was born in 2004 and just advanced for my age??

I was told in 2005 by my GP that I had the brain pattern of a 68 year old!
I feel like I'm 28 years old, but the truth is somewhere in between ...
