We’ve seen lists like this before, and they’re always pretty stupid. But the dating website YourTango.com has a list of pets and what they say about a guy’s relationship potential.
#1.) If He Owns a Dog. It means he’s loyal, and he’s probably okay with commitment. Because as far as pets go, a dog is as close as it gets to having a kid.
#2.) If He Owns a Cat. It means he’s more likely to be sensitive . . . but the list doesn’t really explain WHY.
They just say cat-owning guys tend to take a lot of pictures of their cats, and post them on Facebook . . . which a guy with a dog would NEVER do?
It could also mean he’s not ready for the commitment that comes with taking care of a dog . . . or a kid . . . or even a girlfriend.
#3.) If He Has a Fish Tank. He might not be very open about his emotions, and might not enjoy cuddling up with things . . . including YOU. On the other hand, he might just have allergies.
#4.) If He Has a Parrot. This doesn’t make a ton of sense, but they say it might mean he’s an egomaniac . . . because he likes having a pet that can learn all the dumb lines HE thinks are funny. OR . . . he might just like birds.
#5.) If He Has a Rabbit. It means he’s still clinging to his childhood . . . because he always WANTED a rabbit but couldn’t have one. Again, it might mean he’s not ready to commit, because he’s not mature enough yet.
#6.) If He Owns a Rodent. Like a rat, a mouse, a hamster, or a guinea pig . . . it might mean he has a dark side. And there seems to be a theme here . . . but it means he might still be a “boy” and not a “man.”
#7.) If He Owns a Reptile. Like a snake or an iguana . . . he probably likes FEELING tough, but he might not BE that tough.
OR he got it years ago because his frat brothers thought it was cool. And now he can’t bear to give it away.
If that’s the case, he could be more sensitive than you think . . . because it’s pretty tough to get emotionally attached to something that smells with its tongue.
