Thanks to a new survey of 2,000 Americans who have used a dating app in the past (1,000 of which were pet owners), over a third (39 percent) admitted to swiping right on a profile that featured someone’s dog as they wanted to meet the furball “more than they wanted to meet the person.”

Conducted by OnePoll and commissioned by pet food brand “I and love and you,” the survey looked at the relationship between pets and modern-day dating in the world of apps, such as Hinge, Bumble, and Tinder.

And of the 2,000 people surveyed, 63 percent said they truly believed having a cute doggo in their profile made their chance of success in online dating shoot upwards.

In addition, 39 percent of participants revealed that they even borrowed a friend’s dog to use in their profile as they believed it would help boost their likes and garner more attention.

That being said, this could backfire for obvious reasons. Of the 39 percent who specifically matched with someone because of a pupper in the profile, more than half (53 percent) were “very upset” when they found out that the dog didn’t belong to their match.

The survey also looked at how relationships can be impacted if a pet involved, with 31 percent of participants claiming they stayed in the relationship longer than they should have because they didn’t want to leave a pet.

“We believe pets are people too, so not only can a breakup be heartbreaking with your human partner, it can sometimes be even harder knowing you won’t see your furry companion every day,” VP of marketing at “I and love and you,” Lindsey Rabaut, said in a statement.

“We want the best for them, even more so after a breakup.”

And when it comes to the most romantic time of the year (depending on who you ask) at least 60 percent said they would prefer to spend Valentine’s Day with a pet instead of a significant other. Uhm, that’s a mood.
