Male Roosters

Male Roosters in a relationship like their freedom. They know many ways to please their partners and have the ability to win people over in a very short space of time. They believe that a good long lasting relationship begins with the equality of both partners and prefer to resolve things peacefully. Women who have outgoing personalities will generally attract rooster men. They are very helpful when it comes to work around the house and have a very mature attitude when it comes to relationships.

Good Partners for Male Roosters
  • Tiger: Both have prosperous lives and share common attitudes about life in general. Female tigers often have a peaceful heart.
  • Snake: They know what their partners truly want and have a good grasp on what they are thinking.
  • Ox: Have a more mature and developed personality trait. They tend to have the same goals in life and know each other very well.
Bad Partners for Male Roosters
  • Horse: Lots of disagreement and arguing can pull this couple further apart. They tend not to let go of their partner’s faults instead of learning to work with them. As a result female horses tend to make male roosters short-tempered.
  • Rat: These two never compromise with each other and tend to focus on more small and inconsequential things. Female rats tend to get involved in everyone’s business which can drive the male rooster crazy.
  • Rabbit: Female Rabbits do not have an interest in romantic love and instead prefer to focus on life and the practicality of it. If these two marry the love of the female rabbit will fade out, and the relationship will become rather dull. With these two there is an apparent lack of communication which can lead to many issues down the line.

Female Roosters

They are often very popular and have many charismatic traits that help them to have many friends. Female roosters are often very active in maintaining their relationship and are not shy in expressing their feelings. In relationships, they tend to be quite relaxing to be around and try not to put pressure on their partners. Stereo-typically they like to be in relationships where it is simple and uncomplicated.

Unfortunately, due to their outgoing and adventurous nature, they do not tend to have stable jobs. As a result, they are often told to find men who have either a high paying job or an abundance of wealth to balance this once married female roosters take the role of the family very seriously.

Good Partners for Female Roosters
  • Dragon: They tend to have a positive mindset and are very loyal. These type of men take very good care of their families and create a sense of security for their wives.
  • Ox: They provide a lot of help with career and affluence for the family. By having the same hobbies and similar personality traits will keep this couple together.
  • Snake: Being open and honest is the strongest attribute the female snakes can bring to the relationship. This leads to a very strong relationship. Being rather intelligent and seen as rather exceptional will bring in much wealth and prosperity for the couple.
Bad Partners for Female Roosters
  • Dog: Male dogs are always very critical which can lead to many arguments which can be seen as unnecessary.
  • Rooster: Having a sense of being superior, the male rooster gets this couple into many fights. They tend to make decisions based on pride. They prefer to be in a relationship where being with each other all the time is what they want. If their partner doesn’t want this, then it will cause many problems.
