Online dating for dog lovers canada
· Bark Off: 66 percent of men and women would not date someone who didn’t like pets.
· Paws Turn Heads: 27 percent of women find photos of pets in an online dating profile a turn-on.
So taking these conversations to a social network seems a natural next step.
Seven years later, I have a little Dachshund/Miniature Pinscher mix named Pinch, as well as a big furry cat, two Sphynx cats, and a husband who is constantly lamenting that he “wish he knew what he was getting himself into.” I’m sure he would have preferred that I had an obsession for knitting or stamp collecting rather than four-legged friends, but when I fully unleashed the pet crazy on him, it was too late –- we were already married.
If my husband, Max, and I had seen each other’s profiles on an online dating site back when we were single, there’s no way we would have been matched up. I don’t mind picking cat hair off my clothes, but Max throws a fit.
My passion is animals, and more particularly, dogs and cats, while he’s obsessed with boxing, muay thai and fitness.
But in my case, my love of pets and the fact that I share my home with four of them has created some tension between Max and me.
Pets are a big commitment and have an impact on day-to-day life.
Not if you enlist the help of that four-legged canine cupid bouncing around your feet.
