Many of us love animals, whether we are lucky enough to call ourselves pet owners, or whether the dream of that title has yet to come true.
Now it turns out that having a little furry friend at home can bring better things than most of us thought. At least if the furry friend is a dog. Dogs proves to be a way to more love and here we are not only talking about the unconditional love from the dogs themselves, but from others on the dating market!
Selfies with dogs attract more matches
Figures from the dating app Tinder show that the clever trick of including dogs in one's selfies, increases the chances of obtaining new matches. A survey of 1,000 users shows, among other things, that 29% of users have tried the dog trick, and that people with a dog in their profile picture achieve 5% more matches on average.
If you are not part of this percentage group, and if you have a dog nearby, there are good reasons to do your experiment!
The New Tinder feature makes it easier to match with other animal friends
If your Husky, Golden Retriever or your German Shepherd is your everything, and you want to find a date who understands that the dog comes first, then a good tip is to make use of Tinder's brand-new Explore function.
Here, users who are fond of dogs can interact and match with each other and perhaps meet for a dog date. If your furry friend is going on a date, then here is four ideas for activities you can do with your new match AND your faithful companion.
Tinder's four ideas for dates where the wagging tails can be invited along
1. Beach date: Take your best friend and your date for a trip to the beach and enjoy the weather and the ocean waves together. There are many dog beaches around the country where dogs can cool off and swim in the sea with you – and your date, of course.
2. Legend meeting: Find a friendly park environment or visit a dog playground with your date, where dogs are welcome and where you can play freely with other dogs, while you also get time to get to know each other better.
3. Picnic in the park: Buy takeaway from a food truck and find a good picnic spot in a nearby green area where dogs are welcome and can run around and play freely while you enjoy your takeaway on a blanket on the lawn.
4. Dog-friendly Cafe: Meet your date at a dog-friendly cafe and enjoy both drinks and friendly company simultaneously. There is a sea of covered farm cafes, and if the weather permits, you can enjoy the sun's rays under the open sky.
