PARIS, July 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Dog owners are generally thought to be loyal, compassionate and kind people. Caring for a dog is a lot of work, and that dedication can be pretty appealing to others. That's why it's no surprise a recent survey found that being an animal lover makes a potential partner more attractive. At Tindog, we couldn't agree more.
The findings also suggest that dogs not only help in the search for love, but in friendships as well. About 46 percent of the people surveyed said that walking a dog is one of the easiest ways to make friends, and 29 percent of dog owners have even admitted to meeting lifelong friends while they were walking their dogs.
Whether you're looking for love or just want to find some more friends, a dog is a great way to make a new connection. Here are three ways that your dog actually can actually make you more likeable.
- You're more patient. Dogs test you – a lot. It takes love and patience to train and keep them safe.
- You're more social. By default, dog owners are more social thanks to the fact that our furry friends need to be walked. It's easy to strike up a conversation at the park or dog run. If you're really looking for an attention getter, nothing does the job like a Labrador puppy.
- You know what unconditional love is. Dogs don't care what you look like or how much you weigh; they love you no matter what. In turn, a dog person can be more accommodating, and willing to work harder at relationships.
Tindog is a fun way to match with other dog owners nearby. And because there's already a shared interest to break the ice, it's more likely matches will actually meet-up and find a real connection – whether it's to build new friendships or a love interest.
Tindog is available globally, with versions in French, English, Spanish, Italian, German and Portuguese.
