Have your pet(s) had any influence on your dating life? What if your pet didn't like your significant other? Or vice versa? What then?

A while back I brought a date home. The two of us were in the living room sitting on the sofa. My date sees Purr and calls to her. He thinks he's going to make friends. Purr, who is normally very shy with new people, jumps up on the sofa. She goes up to my date, gets right in his face, and hisses. It was priceless. I guess she told him. Wink

Anyway, it turned out Purr was a great judge of character. My date had issues, and I didn't see him much after that. Now that I think about it, Purr didn't much like the last 2 guys I seriously dated. So, the next guy is going to have to pass the Purr test if he's going to last. Very Happy

My dog now has trust issues Rolling Eyes Laughing .......

When I was with my (non-dancing) ex, we had three big dogs between us, and Jordan loved his new 'step' family (& absolutely adores 'Dad').

He could never work out why we split up. Poor thing was trumatised Sad .

Now each time my ex visits with his (remaining) dog, Jordan would be over the moon but cry for hours after they leave Crying or Very sad ............

I feel so bad Crying or Very sad . Pets suffer just as kids do, in any family split-ups.

Now Jordan is very cautious with the dates (not many) I bring home. I need to choose wisely too.

Maybe I am your dog...I got trust issues too! Shocked Wink

Sounds like dog-soap... "The Dogs of our Lives" or "The Bold and the Beagles" Wink

Dogs are useful on dates or just meeting people. If someone has a dog that attracts somehow (small and fluffy, or just a natural high pet-me aura), people tend to come up for the dog. Easy to create connections. And it rules out people who don't like dogs as date Wink I remember that in a store a lady had a terrible cute little fuzzy dog. It was just horrible how adorable the liittle lad (or lass) looked. Everyone was just drawn to pet it, or had to restrain themselves from giving in the cuddle urges.

You know...it's funny. My Dad (an old fashioned guy) told me I would never find a guy that liked cats. When I met my husband I was surprised to find out that his mom and step dad (a big guy from Wisconsin!) Had always had Cats and were huge fans of Kitty cats. So he grew up with lots and lots of cats. Imagine my surprise and excitement. I was so happy. I knew I had found my match. We now have 3 Cats Shocked ....may be more in the future Wink .

Aw, sweet story Shelley Smile I agree with GR and squirrel: "Don't like pets? I hope your mum and dad haven't cleaned your room out yet" Razz Even if a person has no cats or dogs, I do find it important that that person likes animals.

From the internet Laughing:

Why Puppies Are Better Than Boyfriends

1. Puppies won't ask you if it's the best puppy you've ever had.

2. A puppy always comes to you when you call it.

3. If you show affection for a puppy, it returns it with no strings attached.

4. All you need to do for a puppy to love you forever is feed it and not beat it with heavy blunt objects.

5. Puppies love you unconditionally.

6. It's OK if your PUPPY gets fleas from another puppy.

7. You can put a puppy on a leash and snap it back if it tries to sniff other puppies.

8. Your puppy will never leave you for your roommate, best friend, or someone with bigger breasts / more money / better looks / a better body / etc.

9. Puppies urinating in the front lawn is normal.

10. Puppies don't "bite the hand that feeds them."

11. Puppies are easier to train to do simple tasks.

12. A puppy never conspires with other puppies to play with your mind.

13. Puppies never leave en masse to check out puppies in the other room.

14. A puppy won't give you a lot of backtalk for no apparent reason.

15. You can train your puppy to do tricks--like play dead "all day."

16. If you have a neighbor you don't like, you won't be as embarrassed if your puppy poops all over his lawn.

17. Puppies don't even pretend to know how to fix whatever they break.

18. Puppies won't get jealous of all of your male friends.

19. Neutering your boyfriend, as practical as it may seem, is harder to justify.

20. A puppy's face in the toilet bowl is less alarming.

21. Puppies don't leave the toilet seat up.

22. Puppies don't have to show other puppies that it's "the puppy of its house."

23. Puppies attract men; boyfriends drive them away.

24. Puppies don't do dishes, but at least they attempt to lick their own plate clean.

25. Puppies won't ask "Why don't you look like THAT?" when watching TV.

26. Puppies actually look attractive with a full body of hair.

27. Puppies don't mind staying home with the kids.

28. Because puppies can't read maps; they have a GOOD excuse for getting lost.

29. Puppies don't have double-standards.

30. There's no such thing as an EX-puppy...

My sweetie LOVES cats! Two is enough, though(cats, not men! Laughing )...
Peor, that is so true about puppies(the #4 on your list) as well as men!(usually!) I don't have to beat my sweetie and he eats whatever I cook unconditionally, no mater how spicy, and I think he will love me forever, or at least until I reach menopause!
