A phoenix is a mythical bird with a colorful plumage and a tail of gold and scarlet. It has a 500 to 1,000 year life-cycle, near the end of which it builds itself a nest of twigs that then ignites; both nest and bird burn fiercely and are reduced to ashes, from which a new, young phoenix or phoenix egg arises, reborn anew to live again. The new phoenix is destined to live as long as its old self. It is said that the bird's cry is that of a beautiful song. The phoenix is known by many different nations. Greek -Φοῖνιξ Arabic - العنقاء Persian - سيمرغ Chinese - ( fenghuang) 鳳凰 Japanese - ( fushichō) 不死鳥 Russian -Жар-Птица Christian writers justified their use of this myth because the word appears in Psalm 92:12 LXX Psalm 91:13. However, it was the flourishing of Christian Hebraist interpretations of Job 29:18 that brought the Joban phoenix to life for Christian readers of the seventeenth century. The first modern Greek currency bore the name of phoenix. The constellation Phoenix, was introduced in the late 16th century by sailors organized by Petrus Plancius, probably one of Keyser or de Houtman and displayed on a globe from 1597 created by Hondius.
The phoenix is a mythical sacred firebird that originated in ancient Phoenician mythology (according to Sanchuniathon), Chinese mythology, Egyptian religion and later Greek mythology.

The best person imaginable. He remembers every word you say, every detail and uses them to later surprise you. He knows exactly how to work a woman . His the only guy that can match my game. His thoughtful, sweet, adorable, cool, funny and genuine. He will first become your friend then your best friend then you end up falling madly in love with him. You end up pushing him away because you don't want to ruin this binding relationship. Then one day you realise you can't survive a day without him. Every guy wants to be a Phoenix but unfortunately for them when his around they all feel like finches. His loyal and helpful.

He claims to be shy but that's hard to believe judging by the way he comfortably flirts with women. It's hard to believe that Phoenix can remain faithful due to his popularity amongst women. They boost his ego. At times he does feel like a shadowed Phoenix because there's a dark sad side to him. He has many regrets but lives for a satisfying and promising future. He spoils his girl rotten and in return she allows him to play with her boobs. A great fixation of his is he likes to bathe in a spa bathe filled with the whole entire bottle of bubble bath. He then makes shapes from bubbles on her boobs and she has to guess what they are. This weird behaviour lasts for hours before he falls asleep on her boobs. Otherwise his the best thing that could ever happen to you.
Phoenix: "Babe, what shape is this?"
Girl: "It looks like a grapefruit"
Phoenix: "No, it's another boob, now you have three"
Girl: "Ha! Ha! You'd love it if I had three boobs wouldn't you".
