Hi, your love compatibility is not low. However, you are the one who knows your relationship best. So it all depends on yourself. If you feel so exhausted in a relationship and cannot see any hope, you may need to consider leaving. Best wishes!

The fortune of the 2020 is still not clear at present so it's hard to say. Maybe you can pay attention to that in the second half year of 2019.

Answered by Terry from USA | Nov. 12, 2018 23:22

Look for the friendship in the one you love, build that friendship until until that person loves you in return. As a 1975 rabbit, I learned the hard way too. Though, looking into self you will know the answers by sensing it, you will know what’s right and what’s worth pursuing. Become the relationship you enjoy and reality will change with it. Respect yourself and others will respect you. Give of yourself and others will give back to you. Go with your instincts, they are always right.
