Online Dating Apps 2020: As Many Cute Dog & Cat Pictures As There Are Single Men & Women

During his time online dating, London author Ben Arogundade discovered that there were as many cute cats and dogs pictured within dating app profiles as there were people. February 07, 2020.

PET LOVE: Online dating profile pictures feature as many images of cute cats and dogs as they do people, revealing how much Brits love their pets. Discover more in Ben Arogundade’s new book — a guide to online dating.

My Terrifying, Shocking, Humiliating Amazing Adventures In Online Dating recounts my journey as a 50-something male Londoner after unexpectedly finding myself single following the break-up of a six-year relationship. I embarked upon an eventful journey through the precarious world of online dating apps, during which time I was stood up, ghosted, verbally abused, propositioned for sex and asked to be a surrogate father to an unborn child, amongst other things. 

My book documents my eventful journey as well as offering new advice for what single men and women need to do to find their match. Here are some of my top tips:

During my time navigating online dating apps such as Bumble, Tinder, Match, happn and Hinge, I soon discovered that this generation of single women are totally obsessed with animals, particularly cats, but more frequently dogs. I had never seen so many cute images of online daters cuddling their pooches. I saw as many dogs within online dating profiles as there were people. I sometimes wondered what these women wanted a boyfriend for when their relationships with their pets seemed so intimate and fulfilling. I remember reading one profile in which a woman wrote, “If you don’t love my dog, you can’t love me.” I thought, Really? Why can’t I just like your dog? Why does it have to be love? Many women now view their pets with an equal level of importance as mothers with children. They are an integral part of the household, and if the new boyfriend does not adapt to that, he won’t last. And part of that adaptation may mean taking it for walks, picking up poop and potentially sleeping three-in-a-bed with little Scooby. 

So guys, if you really want to expand your possibilities for finding your match, get serious about loving cats and dogs — there are a whole lot of women who will love you in return.

Get the full list of my top tips in my new book, and learn how to online date better. Good luck!
