Countless studies and surveys have confirmed deep-rooted suspicions that dog lovers are awesome and happy, while cat people are sad and single.

Seriously — a recent survey by Facebook revealed the truth of the matter and found that dog people are excited, proud, blessed, and fabulous, whereas cat people are sad and emotional, love anime, and have no chill. And I’m not making this up.

 

No chill whatsoever.

No chill whatsoever.

Moreover, another study also found that dog people are much sexier than cat people, probably because cat people are so problematic, as aforementioned. Also probably because cats are losers and they suck.

But guess what else? According to an amazing new survey, it was discovered that men who have dogs are seen as much, much hotter than men who don’t have dogs. So yeah, if you currently don’t have a dog, you should probably get one.

The study, which was conducted by Petsies, showed 1,000 participants pictures of people holding various dogs and cats, in order to find out whether or not different pets made people look more attractive. And let me tell you, the results are staggering.

First and foremost, the survey found that men who were holding puppies were rated as nearly 24 percent sexier relative to every other man, as well as 14 percent more trustworthy, and 13 percent more attractive. I think this strongly suggests that puppies might be the secret to success in the dating world.
