Market Watch. Pinterest Reddit. By Seema Mattoo. Pets were always good companions for single folks, however, recent research shows they also might be the next best thing for men to find a soulmate.
A recent international study says that women are more attracted to guys who have pets. We find out if this holds true for people in the city Pets were always good companions for single folks, however, recent research shows they also might be the next best thing for men to find a soulmate.
According to an international study, there are indications that owning a dog or a cat can signal to a potential partner that you possess caregiving abilities. Dr Deepak Jumani, sexual health physician and counsellor says, "The sensitivity of a person is personified by his actions. Apart from physical attributes, a woman is drawn to a man due to his emotional traits like caring, compassion, concern for all, so it is true that a woman will find a man to be more attractive when he is seen to be caring and empathetic to his pets.
She immediately relates it to how caring he will be with his life partner. Women tend to think of men as unorganised but when they see them with pets, they take it as a symbol of being kind, considerate and disciplined.
Says financial adviser Kim Narang, "I was not so much into pets but when I met my current boyfriend who owns a dog, I changed my opinion. I was amazed by the way he patiently handled Bruno and all the attention and love he showered on him. I don't know about the survey, but women are definitely an emotional lot and seeing someone being wonderful to animals would tug at their heartstrings.
Youngsters seem to be aware of this, as management student Rohan Shah says, "I genuinely love animals and always had a dog for company. The trick is to take the dog for a walk in the park when you know girls will be around. I have seen girls gushing over pets, especially dogs, and have often used my dog as a 'date bait'. I have trained him to be friendly to all so it helps, and I normally visit pet-friendly outlets where one can possibly get a date.
