There have been studies saying that 54 percent of men and 75 percent of women said they would never date people who do not like pets. Many of them mentioned they would only date a person if they actually have a pet.
Owning a pet means you’re (hopefully) a loving and caring person who is showing responsibility by taking care of your buddy. Especially women find that very attractive.
Walking your dog or go to a dog park also gives you the opportunity to start a conversation or often women will start talking to you when they see your furry friend. The good news is you already have something in common!
Besides – having a pet can help on days when you are feeling lonely.
