Find your pawfect match on Tinder’s Explore with your pet

Whether it's the fluffy and opinionated Fat Louie from The Princess Diaries or the wise and all-knowing Pluto from Dil Dhadakne Do, our pets are our besties for life. They are the ones we spill all the tea to, and our lives are unimaginable without their little legs trotting next to us everywhere we go. They know us better than anyone, and that's why they make the perfect wingmate for our dating profiles too!  As per Tinder’sFuture of Dating report 2021, first dates are more about activities than icebreakers, and it's perfect for dog lovers, who’ll come together IRL once and fluff all, to find a bae who vibes with them and their four legged friend., if they vibe, that's your green flag to see where things go! For all the pet lovers or pet parents, head over to ‘Animal Parents’ in Explore - Tinder’s hottest new venue where members can navigate potential connections through common interests and match with someone who loves animals just as much as you do!

A silly selfie with your pet will get those matches rolling

Of course our pets can't MAKE our dating profiles for us, but that doesn't stop them from doing all the ‘talking’ on profiles. 1 in every 10 photos on Tinder includes a pet, making them the real MVPs both online and IRL. Members show them off like a badge of love, with their bios inviting matches to be a step-parent to their furry babies.

Who isn't interested in adorable pets?

If you already have your puppy showing off his cuteness on your profile, take a moment to appreciate all the street cred that your dog gives your profile because ‘Dog Lovers’ is one of the top 5 interests of Tinder members. If that's not reason enough to show off them furry cuties, I don't know what is!

Everyone. Loves. Puppies.

Not only does putting your pet on your dating profile warn off people with allergies (#sorrynotsorry) or people who just don’t share your love of animals, it also gives your profile a boost. Your Likes increase by 5% when you upload a pic with your pup. But beware, puppies can be tough nuts to crack; you never know when you might encounter a Simon who must approve of all his parent’s suitors.  

Being a pawrent says a lot about their personality

Having a furry friend on your profile is definitely a major plus. Apart from being irresistibly adorable, pets help their pawrents cop a whole lotta attention. A closer look at their photos and profiles might reveal tiny hints about your potential match. While not foolproof, pet parents are thought to be loyal, loving, friendly and active individuals. A profile with pets can portray one to be a responsible individual who is caring and loves freely.

On how our four-legged furry friends make it impossible for potential matches to swipe left, Aahana Dhar, Director - Communications, Tinder India says, “Who doesn’t love animals! The major upside to having a picture with a furry friend is that it automatically leads to more likes and easy icebreakers with cute pets playing the role of Cupid on the app. Our data shows that ‘dog lover’ is, in fact, one of the top 10 most popular passions for Gen Z in India. You can now match with another 'Animal Parent' on Explore and swap that dinner date with a walk in a park!”
