Have you thought about the impact a four legged creature could have on going from single and searching to blissfully coupled up?
Previously, I’ve shared some insight on my beloved pup and how much joy he’s brought to the lives of my husband and I. Now, I’d like to elaborate a bit on why you should get a dog, especially if you’re single! (and of course love pets)
Chances are, you probably haven’t considered how impactful a dog can be for you in terms of getting more dates.
Why? Here are just a few reasons:
They get you out & about! — this is the first step to meeting more people in the first place, outside of your apartment!
They naturally draw you to the company of other people who already share a common interest (people like you) – ie. at the vet, the dog park, around town, or just about anywhere you’d be walking or spending time with your dog.
Having a dog really helps you “break the ice” – I see it happening time and time again even when I’m on a stroll with Marshall – if people are within close enough proximity, they will take a moment to make a comment or strike a conversation.
Having a pet gives you something to talk about – sharing training methods, dog foods, funny stories and so on.
I was contacted by a producer yesterday at the BBC News and did an interview with them today at 12:00am PST via Skype.
Dan Damon interviewed me (they never told me exactly ahead of time what I would be asked but I speculated the geeks finding love in the Silicon Valley.)
The Linx interview is 24 minutes into the podcast.
