First the bad news for single men with cats. When scrolling through photos on dating sites, women find men holding a feline “agreeable and open” but “less masculine, more neurotic,” and most important, “less dateable.” So say the results of a study conducted jointly by researchers at Colorado State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences and Boise State University’s Department of Anthropology. The investigators looked at the responses of more than 700 women ages 18 to 24.
Now the good news. There’s an app that connects men and women cat lovers. Called “Tabby — The Cat Person’s Dating App,” it helps you find what it calls the “purrfect match” as well as learn about new cat products and treats. Users create a profile and describe themselves as they would on other dating apps but are also encouraged to upload photos and videos of their pet cats and even to talk about them.
Cat guys, if your dating life seems kaput (and even if it doesn’t), go for it by surfing to tabbydates.com and downloading the app from there. Your opportunity to make a love connection has more than one life.
