Throughout the world there are many of us who simply love animals. We love them in all their forms - furry, scaly, eight legged and feathered - for every animal there is an animal lover who adores it. When you're an animal lover, you're either an animal lover who likes animals but, is cool with not having animals around. Or you're an out and out animal lover and surround yourself with friends who share your passion for the voiceless species of the world. When you are the latter, the passion is something that needs to be shared with a potential love match. If you have a dog or a cat, or any other animal you count them as your babies - your furbabies which means to you, a person coming into your life needs to love your furbabies as much as you do. It may sound trivial but many a promising potential relationship has been shattered when it comes to light one of the people involved despises dogs, when the other owns a dog that means the world to them. I have seen it happen before my very eyes. I have a friend whose life is her horse, she was having some lovely dates with a guy and then it suddenly came to light he wasn't keen on horses - in fact he actively disliked them. In her head, her ideal match would be walking alongside her while she went on hacks in the countryside, accompanying her to competitions on Sundays - so this information was actually a deal breaker for her.
Consider It As Important As Having Kids
If you have a serious passion for the animals in your life, consider wanting pets as important an attribute as wanting kids when it comes to your potential love match. It may sound crazy but, don't think your pooch will 'win' a potential dog hating love match over if they actively state they really aren't keen on pets. It's the same as if they want kids or not - it's not something you would hope someone would change their mind over if it's something you know means a lot to you - it's big enough to stop a potential date happening. Don't be afraid of putting on your online profile that you're an animal lover, it will attract the right people and should keep those who aren't keen on pets well away.
Volunteer At Shelters & Go Where Animal Lovers Go
If you're looking to find a love match who shares your passion for animals, you're going to need to go where animal lovers go. Why not do that and give something back to the furry creatures of this world? Volunteer at an animal shelter and you'll get tons of time with animals, giving them some much deserved love and you might find some love of your own with fellow volunteers who share your passion for the cause. You could also take your dog for walks on well known dog walking routes where other dog walkers will be, and go to dog or cat charity events. Place yourself amongst those who share your passion and you've got a greater chance of finding your own personal passion with someone perfect for you.
Use The Animals To Strike Up Conversation
It's one of the most romantic ideals in the world - man and woman walk their dogs, their dogs fall in love and so do they. In fact you can find it on 101 Dalmations! When walking your dog, don't be afraid to start chatting to another dog walker if your dogs interact. This is a great thing to do socially anyway, but also a great excuse to chat to that hot guy with the Bullmastiff you see every morning.
Use Niche Sites
Use online dating websites that cater for your niche. You can find online dating websites catering for people who love; uniforms, single dads, art - anything you like, including animal lovers. Don't be scared to use a niche site to put yourself in with the best possible chance of finding someone perfect for you, it streamlines your efforts and gives you a much greater chance of finding someone compatible.
Remember, if you are a cat lady there's nothing to be ashamed of, with a little effort and confidence you're sure to find your perfect dog gentleman.
