Q: Do girls often ask you what your zodiac sign is?

This seems to be something especially prevalent amongst Chinese women. I've lost count of the number of girls who asked me what my sign was, then went on and on guessing/declaring 1) what kind of person I was and 2) how I would/wouldn't be a good match with her.

Do people in this day and age truly believe this, or this some fun, gossip-worthy game they play?

I believe they use those signs as a guide. They have questions such as what kind of person you are, how you would be a good match, what you are good at, etc., Usually they use it as a guide to find out if the person they are with is compatible with them. Just like those match-making websites and gameshows do. It's more like match-making in their eyes. They want stability and compatibility. It's more of a guide for them to make up those decisions.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
