For a lot of people, their pets are their family, so it only makes sense that how others treat their pets plays a huge role in how some people are judged, especially when it comes to relationships.
A new survey finds:
- About 70% of pet owners say they see red flags if someone doesn’t treat their pets like family.
- When dating with pets, many singles have definite deal breakers including:
- Leaving a pet in a crate all day (60%)
- Not allowing pets on the furniture (52%)
- And when it comes to looking for love, a lot of people admit their pet is a big help.
- In fact, 49% of people say their pet is their “wingman,” helping them score a potential date’s phone number.
- Plus, 65% of people say they are more likely to swipe right if a person has a pet in their dating app profile picture.
But pets result in issues in a relationship, especially if both parties have them.
- 81% of people believe a “blended family” can refer to combining pets.
- But blending pets isn’t always easy, with one-third of people saying that if pets don’t get along they’d wait it out and hope for the best.
- 67% say that should relationship problems come up they’d try harder to fix things if there were shared pets involved.
