RESPONSE TO PETS REVEALS ROMANTIC RELATIONSHIP
Your date's a disciplinarian
No one should put up with a pet that misbehaves non-stop, but anyone who's too strict should set off alarm bells.
Pets chow down at the dinner table
If your dinner conversation is constantly interrupted by Bubba's big blond head popping up from under the table to get the lion's share of the appetizers, your date may have some boundary issues.
Your own pet makes them jealous
Dates who are threatened by the time and attention you spend with an animal will likely be even more jealous of other things in your life-friends, relatives, work.
He baby-talks his pet snake
You don't really need me to comment on this, do you?
They use their own pet as a proxy
If your date says, "Well, I would like to go to the Cape for the weekend but Tiffany, my Rottweiler, hates the beach," you could have a passive-aggressive type on your hands.
Their pet is overly accessorized
Pets with fancy leashes, sweaters, and booties indicate that their owner is either rich (no complaints here), or harboring a deep sense of inferiority that they believe can be overcome with just the right studded collar.
They don't like animals
Forget about them. That's clearly an evil person.
