“If it wasn’t for the dog, it would never have happened,” Michelle reflects.
“She was a great icebreaker for me to meet and get to know Kevin, a man I otherwise would not have talked to.” A mutual love of dogs also brought Michelle together with her Leashes and Lovers co-founder and partner, Sheryl Matthys.
This immediately gives you something in common with everyone else using the service, and it also allows you to make the most of that wonderfully effective ice breaker—your dog.
After all, most dog lovers think nothing of approaching and talking to a total stranger, provided that person is holding the leash of a friendly-looking dog.
It is just this type of easy, natural interaction that makes singles services for dog lovers such a great way to meet new people.
Even if the initial contact is online or otherwise sanslive canine, you still have an instant, mutually engaging, and virtually inexhaustible topic of conversation—dogs!
Michelle Kennedy, co-founder of Leashes and Lovers, a New York company that organizes singles mixers for dog devotees, knows first-hand about finding romance on the end of a leash.
