Compatibility between a female ox / Libra & male rabbit /Taurus /

Any chances for the above?
He seems a bit stuck with past issues (an ex horse girlfriend whom he said crushed his spirits!)
He also says he's full of woe :((
Only met him once 6 months ago - now I am closer to his city - he's not really formally asking me out - tentatively - but more in the evening...have offered he came skiing with me to get to know him more.
There seems to be an attraction but am too tired after skiing to go out - besides I do have guests.
I do not want to chase him - very attracted though

Hi, your love compatibility is not bad and you may still have chances. Maybe it is not the right time now and he needs more time to recover from the last relationship. However, you can start from friends. Best wishes!
