Water to the Fire
According to the Vietnamese horoscope, dragons are fiery. It is to be expected that they can, sometimes, be bad tempered and make snap decisions. They can be really irritating, obstinate and tactless. Although full of wisdom, there are times when a dragon can get too carried away and be overly critical with his or her suggestions. A dragon person has the inclination to make his or her opinions known and disregard any input from other people.
Love Affair with a Dragon
When it comes to love, dragons are incredibly passionate to a fault. They can be partial in a sense that they become blinded to the faults of their better half; shielding and protecting that loved one from anything or anyone that could hurt them is a dragon’s top priority. A string of admirers usually follow a dragon; the sheer pull of his or her presence is unnerving. In retrospect, this abundance of audience sometimes bloats the ego of the dragon. They can definitely throw a fit when they think that they are not getting the proper amount of compliments. Because it’s easy for them to find admirers, young dragons do not take love seriously at times. Their love affairs and sexual prowess is an endless list. Nonetheless, when a dragon finds true love, he or she gives her or his heart completely.
Dragon people need partners who will allow them to grow and express themselves. Additionally, that love interest will also have to possess a great amount of confidence to match that of the dragons. The dragon is best paired up with the Rat, Rooster, Snake, and Tiger; and they must avoid the Dog at all costs.
