Why I'm Better than Your Dog
I don't have fleas
I'm already housebroke
I smell way better (usually)
While your dog may fling himself at you in delirious glee when you come home, I can do that AND make dinner
Having your dog to listen to you is great, but I can actually talk back… Hmm, on second thought, maybe the dog might win more points with his not being able to talk…
I can promise you now, I will NOT lick my butt before kissing you!
Your dog may jump on you, run into you, knock you over, but I can give one heckuva back rub.
I'm fairly certain that my piano playing sounds a fair bit better than Fido howling his lungs out at goodness only knows what.
I'm sure I could come up with a lot more reasons why I make a much better companion choice than your pooch (Don't worry, I won't ask you to choose between me or him), but I feel I've already made my case pretty well, doncha think? ;)
I have come to the conclusion that it's not nearly as important to have a million things in common with your significant other. The important things to me are that you both have things you care about and support/respect each others' different interests, whether you share them or not. That, when it comes down to it, you have each others' backs when it really matters. And that you both realize that relationships take work and effort, the whole way through. And that you can trust each other completely, 100%, without question.
Right now, I'm focused on getting my life where I want it, so I'm really not looking for a serious relationship. I would love to find someone fun to do things with, and just enjoy each others' company, and if it grows to more than that eventually, great!
