Single women swap cats for dogs to pick up a man — 5 Comments

  1. I call it attention whoring and I see men and women using dogs as prop. They’re also very obvious. Seems like a good way for phony people to meet other phony people.

  2. Laughable!
    Would I trade in my cats for dogs in the hope of attracting a man for my needy, low self-esteemed self?
    I don’t see the benefit.
    I can’t believe that I would have the unconditional love, companionship, and peace that cats provide.
    Maybe, there’s something sexual to attain. But, in my experience, no man is better than myself.

  3. I see some flaws in this article. First, it’s not a serious study, but simply an observation by a dog behaviorist, of his female career clients in the ages between 35 and 45.

    How many career women have the time to walk a dog? If it’s a small dog like a chihuahua, more than likely they use “pee pads” since these dogs are alone all day. Chihuahuas are among the highest number of shelter dogs, given up because of behavior problems. I can guess that most people don’t know much about the Chi personality. I’ve only met one that was calm and well behaved.

    Some people may think Bulldogs are cute, but they’re very strong willed, and need firm discipline, which I doubt that many people are aware of. To get a dog because it’s cute isn’t a very wise move. Puppies grow and their looks change.

    Also, it seems unlikely that a “cat person” would become a “dog person” in order to meet someone. Women who already have dogs would enjoy the prospect of meeting someone while taking their dog on walks. But I would hope that people (women or men) wouldn’t get a dog just for that reason, because that will likely mean trouble for both.

    As for meeting dog/cat loving kindred spirits, there are websites devoted to just that, which would give a single person much more information than just meeting a stranger while walking their dog. One thing in common does not a relationship make.
