Personally. I don't date any guy that would not accept that my pets came first before him. My most previous ex was actually very jealous. Often making very mean jokes such as saying he would "Kill" my dog or "Fight it". They were in joking sentences but of course - to people like me - a pet is family.
He also knew very well that, when I was in a deep depression and all alone - Not meeting any of my friends or him, anything else - She (My dog) was given to me and pulled me out of my depression since I no longer was focused on myself or my problems. As dogs are generally happy - outgoing - playful etc.
I also found to hate my Stepfather (And my biological) because they had a HATRED towards the family cats. We raised them all from kittens. Both absolutely hated cats. Would Kick them if they scratch, break out something to hit them. Purposely scare them off and wonder why the cats hated them so much. So every time I talk to a guy now, I pretty much ask "Do you have a cat-like cats-etc." And the ones that say No often was raise with a cat that "went bad" (Probably mistreated) or just watched videos saying that "Cats are assholes" Or never even lived with one.
Now I've raised both feral, and domestic cats. To me - They all grown up incredibly loving and nice. Even the most "meanest" one who was super honery and used her claws a lot. Didn't like strangers either. But eventually we broke her of that.
To sum it down, I wouldn't do it. But I'm trying to see if anyone is alike to this situation. As well as been in it?
Guys if you have been in this situation. Switch the genders and answer below. I'd love to hear if you had crazy exes/wife/whatever who absolutely hates your pets for some unknown reason.
Note: I already know that there are people with allergies against animals. I do know that there are pills/vaccines people take to live with them. As my Aunt is allergic to cats + dogs, but owns both.
- They wouldn't even make it past the door. NO.Vote A
- I would look more into the reason, but still consider it to be a NO.Vote B
- I don't own any, so I guess. YESVote C
- Humans are better companions. YESVote D

I'm a pet person and I love animals. It would be a insta clash and it would probably not work as my niece just walks around with her bunny. And she is pretty much is always around me. So dating someone who doesn't like pets would not work. As I am not about to take my niece's pet away for the sake of having a girl friend.0THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE

No I wouldn't date someone who doesn't like my pets. My pets come first. Call me crazy all people want, but my pets have been there with me through so much and they won't leave me (until they pass away of course). But this other person can't guarantee they will stay through all the problems. So no, I wouldn't date someone who doesn't like my pets.3THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE
