Pets dating with yummy. like
Are you a fan of pets or do you love animals? Are you single and interested in dating a fellow pet lover and animal lover? Believe it or not, most of the population has a soft spot for animals and many more women than men are pet lovers! In fact, studies and pet statistics show that roughly 42% of households contain a dog and 33% contain a cat. 60% (or 3 of 5) of all households in the United States owns some kind of pet, making it a very serious shared interest in the dating game.
Hint for Men: Single Women Are the Biggest Pet Lovers
The studies also showed that women are more likely to own a pet than men. 69% of women have a pet and 55% of men have a pet. Of all the pet owners, 69% owned a dog and 52% owned a cat. 11% own a fish, 7% own a bird and 11% own another type of animal as a pet. Not only is a dog a man's best friend, but happens to be woman's best friend as well! These statistics may come as a shock to many people.
In the dating scene, polls and web traffic demographic analysis also show that niche dating sites (for pet lovers and animal lovers) have a much larger number of single women available for dating. The data shows that there is about 125 females for every 100 males on these animal lover sites. This means there are a lot of single women available who happen to be pet owners and fans of animals, so it's a good tip and piece of dating advice for men to keep in mind.
Studies show that single women are by far the biggest animal lovers - take the hint guys!
Animals Can Help You Get a Date
Surveys of single men and women suggest that having a pet with you and/or in your profile photo with you, can leave a much more positive first impression. Jessica says: "An attractive man with a pet appears much more down-to-earth than a man without a pet. The pet makes men appear much more approachable, friendly and less intimidating". Men had a similar opinion as well in regards to women who had pets with them. Participants rated photos of models with and without an animal. When the models had an animal, they were described as "looking" more relaxed, happy, fun and approachable than they did without a pet. With more women being animal lovers, it would only make sense that they would be more open to men who share the same interest and mind set.
There have been numerous dating experiments with men approaching women by themselves or with a pet. One such experiment began with a man asking complete strangers (women) in public for a phone number or a date or just to hang out sometime. When they walked by themselves, they were successful in 1 out of 10 attempts. But when the man had a dog with them, it was successful in 1 out of 3 attempts! The consensus in multiple experiments shows that animals really help in getting dates. Not to mention, most animals are cuddly, fluffy, soft and fun to play with - or slithery and crawly if you are the type that prefers snakes, reptiles, spiders and the like. To meet singles, it's as easy as taking your dog out for a walk in the park and around town.

Marriage Material: Men with Animals Seen As Provider - Appealing to Women
Evidence also suggests that there may also be a biological reason for women being attracted to single animal lovers and men who have pets. People with pets are seen as providers, having resources to take care of others, and they are seen as being committed to companionship and caring for others. These are excellent traits for single men and women who are seeking long term relationships and long lasting love. In other words, pet lovers are seen as "marriage material". This worked both ways - both men and women were highly attracted to animal lovers of the opposite sex.
A Dating Site for Single Animal Lovers and Pet Owners
There are a handful of small, specialized sites out there just for pet owners, dog owners and cat owners only. We do not recommend these highly specialized sites. Instead, our site (LetsHangOut.com) is a general dating site for everyone, including animal lovers - and it's 100% completely free. We recommend this because even single men and women who don't own pets can still find your profile. In fact, you can search for single pet owners based on the animal(s) they select in profiles. Or you can search for singles based on specific keywords and shared interests, like: animals, dogs, cats, and just about specific animal keyword you can think of!Click here to sign up!
