What’s It Really Like To Date A Tiger

Tigers Personality

Tigers have strong personalities, they are charismatic and self-assured. Tigers were born to lead.

It takes a brave soul to try to win the heart of a Tiger, but with a few tips you can tame a Tiger and have them eating out of your hand.


Of all the zodiac sun signs, Tigers are generally the most dominant. When you’re dating someone born in the Year of the Tiger, don’t be surprised if after a while there is a challenge about who wears the pants in the relationship.

If you don’t like being bossed around, it’s important to assert yourself with your tiger partner from early on in the relationship. While they’ll never be submissive, they’ll learn to respect you if you’re strong willed and can stand up for yourself— especially if you can do so without tearing them down. If you’re willing to be patient and make fair compromises, you and your Tiger partner will learn to work out differences peacefully.

If you are a more submissive person by nature, then you’re going to love being with a Tiger person. Tigers are natural leaders; just give your Tiger the respect they want, and they’ll take charge. They’ll do everything they can to bring out the best in you.


True to the animals associated with them, Tigers can be very prideful. This is their greatest blessing and greatest curse. Their pride is what makes them so confident and daring, enabling them to go after the loftiest of goals. When that pride turns to arrogance and smugness, it can be their biggest downfall. You have to walk a fine line with them.

Sometimes they get too puffed up with pride and need deflating. Rational, non-judgmental reminders of the bigger picture can bring them down to Earth. Also, when they’re being stubborn, keep in mind that flattery will get you everywhere. You catch more Tigers with honey than with vinegar. Sweet talk will bring them around faster than harsh words.

Avoid wounding their pride; they’ll find it hard to trust you, and they’ll resent you if you belittle them or treat them with cruelty. It’s hard to break a Tiger’s will; putting them down will only cause that pride to manifest in more negative ways. They can become haughty, ill-tempered and vengeful.


Tigers love to be the center of attention. Don’t be surprised if they become the life of the part wherever you go. They like to flirt, to regale others with stories and get laughs. So great is their need for attention that sometimes when they seek it, they might neglect you. They have to be reminded occasionally that you love them, but you’re not their groupie. Being loyal and affectionate people, they’ll take the hint.

Tigers need a lot of romantic attention from their partners. They’re very lustful and have a strong sex drive. They also bore easily, so their ideal mate is someone who can come up with creative and exciting ways to spice things up in the bedroom.


“Life is never dull with a Tiger person. They are big hearted, with big personalities and big ambitions— so when they do things, they like to do things big.”

They love a lavish lifestyle, prefer adventurous hobbies and vacations, and career-wise they’re very fixated on success. They’re not ones willing to settle— they will always strive to have it all. If you’re planning on spending your life with a Tiger, be ready to live life to the fullest and make the most out of it.
