The Unexpected Ways Your Pets Can Sabotage Your Love Life

“It’s not you, it’s me.” If you’ve spent any time dating, you’ve probably heard those five words from someone. But sometimes, what the person really means is, “It’s actually your pet.”

It’s no surprise that a cute puppy can attract potential partners as you walk him around the park. But according to a surprising study by Woodstream, pets can sabotage relationships, too.

Whether you have a dog, a cat, or a pet that’s a little more exotic, these are the deal-breakers and turnoffs that could scare off potential partners.

Meeting your date in the park and thinking of taking your dog along? Planning to cook dinner at home and hoping your plus-one will get along with your cat? You might want to rethink those plans if your relationship is still young. Woodstream reports that 32% of men and 41% of women think bad behavior on the part of a pet is a deal-breaker in a relationship. Maybe you should plan a different date — and find a puppy kindergarten class ASAP.
