6 Ways Owning A Pet Prepares You For A Relationship
3. Putting Someone’s Needs Before Your Own
By no means am I trying to say you should always do that in a relationship. That would be ridiculous and a very unhealthy relationship dynamic. But in certain situations, you really need to do it. Pets teach us to factor in their needs into our daily life. We have to make sure we walk the dog or feed the parrot, the same way we’ll need to factor in a dinner with his family once in a while.
4. Becoming A Responsible Adult
When you get a furry four-legged friend you inevitably become more responsible. You create a routine for yourself and your pet, you start scheduling to make sure you don’t miss vaccinations and checkups at the vet, you start budgeting to make sure you have enough money for yourself and your pet has food and treats. All these things will greatly improve your future relationships and make them run smoother.
