The Dragon and the Monkey

I don't care what people are gonna say, but N and I are going to make an absolutely adorable couple. We spoke for 2 hours last night on the phone before I went to bed, and two hours this morning when I got up. He told me how he was talking to a friend who is _convinced_ that he and this guy who he hasn't met yet in real life are gonna be totally compatible for each other, because he is a goat, and the other dude is a pig. While completely unscientific, N's Chinese Zodiac animal is a Monkey, and so both of them did a bit of googling and found out that Monkeys are most compatible with Dragons, but he did not know what my zodiac was at that time.

Turns out I'm a Dragon. When I told N this over the phone, he started laughing really hard. We then spent quite a bit of time poring over zodiac websites:

The Dragon and the Monkey make a fiery, fun match! These two signs have a ton in common — both are highly energetic with plenty of optimism, brash courage and get-up-and-go; both love anything exciting — parties, amusement parks, nightclubs … The Monkey, especially, loves to pursue its own pleasures, but together these two will live life in their customary fast-paced style. They are both such fiery personalities that occasional flare-ups of temper are likely; however, neither sign is interested in holding a grudge and both are perfectly happy to hash things out and then move on. 
They both are very social and while they love to go out together, if they must do separate things that is okay too. As long as they end up together at the end of the night they are fine. Monkey may be inclined to play around. While Dragon loves to flirt, Monkey will take it further. Luckily, neither one tends to hold a grudge. 
As lovers, their connection is electric. In the bedroom these two are like baby tigers, tumbling and playing together with claws bared! It’s all in good fun, of course. 
How about our astrological signs? N is a Leo, and Leos are most compatible with Aries and Sagittarius.

What do you know, I'm a Sagittarius. Once again, both of us started cracking up.

Extracted from,
When Leo and Sagittarius join together in a love match, the result is often fireworks! Both Signs are extremely dynamic and enjoy life to the fullest. Sagittarius’s philosophical tendency warrants a distraction to Leo’s obsession with the larger-than-life. The two will have genuine admiration and respect for one another. Both are warm, charismatic and charming; people enjoy being in the energy this couple radiates. 
Both Signs can be impatient but endearing, and Leo may be annoyed by Sagittarius’s flirting, but there’s never a dull moment in their relationship. Sagittarius sees the world as a textbook they must study from, while Leo acts as the gracious host. Both are extremely social, but it is vitally important to Leo that they feel that they are in control of the conversation. Leo is the Lion, the leader, while Sagittarius is the Archer, slowly taking the time to survey their target and feel the nuances of difference in their approach. 
Leo is ruled by the Sun and Sagittarius is ruled by the Planet Jupiter. Both are masculine energy archetypes, and together they make a good combination — they understand one another because they are so similar. The Sun is about Self and Jupiter is about expansion and excess, together providing a personal and outward focus on themselves and the world, although sometimes they can overexert themselves. They’re highly compatible with lots of energy, and can be a wonderful couple in any setting or situation. 
Both are Fire Signs. This tends to be a very heated and passionate relationship. They both have boundless energy, and can seem the only ones able to keep up with one another’s intensity. Although Sagittarius may become exhausted by Leo’s expansive ego, their differences of opinion won’t last long.  
Leo is a Fixed Sign and Sagittarius is a Mutable Sign. Sagittarius provides Leo with the deeper understanding they may be lacking, while Leo can fine-tune Sagittarius’s charm and social graces. Sagittarius may be irritated by Leo’s bossiness, shallow vanity and tendency to sulk. However, they are both loyal and devoted to one another, and the rewards of their union outweigh the minor setbacks.
I tend to take these things with a pinch of salt, but somehow I can't seem but feel really optimistic about things. The above is remarkably close to the truth. N said that even the stars say that we are perfect for each other. I just smiled my cheeky smile on the phone with him. September 9th needs to come faster so I'll be reunited with him in London. Dude. Can't.Fucking.Wait.
