"I am looking for a Febtuary 16th, NINE of Diamonds." As a 65 YO widower expat in China, I pitched my quest in my "Icebreaker" speech to the Middle Kingdom Toastmasters Club. Wouldn't you know it, a couple of months go by and Karen Gao said she had found the lady for me.

I paused for a full minute at the top to regain my shallow breathing norm, followed by walking backwards down the stairs to demonstrate my arthrytic knee agility.
We were well into our second hour of coffee and enjoyable conversation, when she asked how I found her in 12 million population Zhengzhou. Easy, I told my friends that I was looking for February 16th.
"What's with the business of my birthday?"
I discovered in my Sex and Marriage User manual that you and I are destined for a very simpatico relationship.
"That sounds like Astrology, and there are two things I hate: Trligion and Astrology."

It wasn't like I was naive, I had been engulfed by the flame of Ms February 21. Slow learner that I am, I told myself, that this time it will be different.
There was reason for my optimism a zero in Compatibility is bad-bad-bad, what are you going to talk about in the morning after? You want a low mark in Intensity, a negative number is best to avoid arguments.
