Pets snuggle with no ulterior motives.
You expect your pet to sometimes smell funny. You worry when your date does. Conversely, your pet seems to enjoy it when you are especially malodorous, whereas your date does not.
Your pet doesn’t mind so much when you wear matching outfits.
Your pet doesn’t care if you have put on a few pounds, have some extra hair in weird places or if you’re wearing those holey sweatpants. Some dates expect you to step it up.
When you give your pet dinner out of a bag, can or crisper drawer, they act like it is French cuisine.
Your pet will always be happy to see you and will act like it’s been an eternity since they saw you last. If your date is not happy to see you, get a different date. Better yet, get a pet.
