Huffington Post- PSA to dudes everywhere: You’re hotter with a dog. A recent study confirmed that pet owners are indeed perceived by potential partners as hotter than non-pet owners. (Surprise!) Conducted by PetSmart, the study surveyed 1,210 Match.com users to figure out how pets play a role in single adults’ dating lives. Researchers found that 35 percent of women and 26 percent of men surveyed responded that they had “been more attracted to someone because they had a pet.” Out of the 733 female participants, 500 responded that a dog is the hottest pet a guy could own.
I only agree with part of this. Having a “pet” doesn’t make you hotter. No, I don’t want go to your room to see your iguana, cat, ferret, etc. (unless its a kitten then I’m all in). Dogs on the other hand 100 times out of 10, will make you hotter or just a cooler person. Having a dog makes me like you better, plain and simple. Having a dog makes everyone like you better because they like hanging out with your dog and not you. Everyone knows the best thing about your significant other (guys and girls included) is their dog. I’m very confident that all of my ex boyfriends liked my dog more than me. Some of my ex’s have actually said to me “Wow I’m really going to miss your dog.” And you know what? I don’t blame them. Dogs are awesome and no one will ever love you more, be more excited to see you when you get home, and they’ll never bitch at you. So everyone go home and give your dog a belly rub because they deserve it.
P.S Tiny, yippie, annoying dogs are excluded from this. If it can fit in a bag when it’s fully grown then its not a real dog. Also if you have one of those things and you carry it around in a purse, you’re the worst type of person.
