Wondering why your date from Friday night is ghosting on you? If you weren't on board with his furry roommate, that could be the reason. A whopping 66 percent of single pet owners said they wouldn't date someone who didn't like pets, according to a recent survey by Match.com and PetSmart.
The two companies surveyed over 1,000 pet-owning singles to uncover the truth about cats, dogs, and dating. And it turns out, your thoughts on furry friends are pretty damn important when it comes to dating a pet lover. Plus, 59 percent of pet owners agree that adopting a pet is hotter than buying one, and 35 percent of women have been more attracted to someone because of their pet. (Exhibit A: these male celebs who look even hotter with their petsÃ¢â‚¬”not that they needed the help.)
