A friend of mine once had a date show up with a pillowcase. It contained his snake. No kidding. If that had been me, the relationship would have ended on the spot. Now, if he had shown up with his dog, that would have been a different matter entirely.
There’s a matchmaking event going on in my new book, MISSION IMPAWSIBLE. The town of Wagtail caters to people and their fur friends, so they are encouraged to bring their pets with them. The cats and dogs will help break the ice and might even make some matches.
Animals remove the pressure of coming up with something clever to say to a stranger. Even the shyest person is usually happy to talk about Fido, especially if Fido is present and wagging that tail. Think this is silly? Kloof, an app that connects people through their dogs, did a survey. Now before you peek at their survey results, guess which breeds are most likely to attract women to the guy holding the leash.
- German Shepherds or Poodles?
- Chihuahuas or French Bulldogs?
- Bernese Mountain Dogs or Labrador Retrievers?
- Shih Tzus or Golden Retrievers?
- Siberian Huskies or Pomeranians?
Ready for the answers?
In order of preference, women like men with:
- German Shepherds
- Golden Retrievers
- Labrador Retrievers
- Siberian Huskies
- French Bulldogs
And, by the way, if you’re a woman looking for a relationship with a man, take your Golden Retriever for a walk. They scored number one with men.
MISSION IMPAWSIBLE was in bookstores on February 7th. With a professional matchmaker and meddling mothers, you know there’s bound to be trouble!
