Welcome to DateMyPet.com
Another dating site? No. A meeting site for pet people? Yes.
The idea for DateMyPet.com started during a walk with my dog in our local park. As usual, folks will approach us and comment on how cute he is. Typically this will lead to a conversation. These conversations range from simple causal talk to details about their lives. Total strangers and we’ll be conversing like old friends. That’s the power of our pets. They provide a common link, an understanding of who we are.
The folks I meet on these walks range from long time happily married couples to singles. Though their lives are very different, they all share a love for animals. Either as a pet owner or a ‘want-to-be’. Speaking to the singles, it surprised me how many of their dates and relationships ended because the other partner was not compatible with their love for their pets. These range from ‘she hated my dog’s drooling’ to ‘he is allergic to my cat’ and the classic ‘he thinks I’m crazy because I treat them like babies’. When the decision came to choose between the partner or the pet – it was a no-brainer for the majority. The pet won.
So here we are, “if you want to date me, you have to date my pet”. That’s the drive behind this website. If you knew first hand that a person is a pet lover, it would make things a lot easier. That is a strong link that can be built upon.
DateMyPet.com is not just another dating site. I want it to be a community for pet owners. Looking for love or friendship. So try it and tell us what you think.
If you are not a pet owner, you are welcomed too. But just remember, “…date my pet”.
