Love is a beautiful, albeit harrowing emotion. It can be as destructive and exhilarating as any roller coaster with highs so high they literally make you feel like you’re on top of the entire world and lows that make you want to curl up into a ball and cry bitterly. Whichever side of the love spectrum you’re on right now, we’re willing to bet that everyone’s been infatuated with someone at some point in time or another – even if it’s just for a moment and video of a giraffe lifting boy into the air.
8 ways to use animals to make someone fall in love with you:
1. Use animals to communicate your thoughts
So, you’re infatuated with someone. Someone you’ve just met, perhaps. How do you convey this feeling to them? You could stare at them longingly until they ask if you’re okay. You could write them an awkward and somewhat creepy love letter. Or you could use the most ancient form of communication known to man – pictures.
To attract your potential date via animal means, display some pictures that include a cute animal in your house or apartment, or on your computer’s desktop if it isn’t a shared computer. That way, the person you are interested in will see them and think “Wow, this person must really like animals.
2. Show how much you like animals
While having pictures of adorable animals around is a good way to communicate that you like animals, it isn’t necessarily the best. You see, it’s one thing to admire them from afar – snapping a few shots and uploading them to facebook; it’s another thing entirely to be actively involved with them on a regular basis. If your potential love interest wants to know that you like animals, they need proof.
Volunteer at an animal shelter or perhaps raise money and collect supplies for your local SPCA. Spend free time at the park playing fetch or going for long walks with your pet. If you can’t make an animal-focused hobby yourself, there are plenty of other ways to show that you’re part of the animal community – or at least a fan.
3. Use animals for decor
This is a really fun way to incorporate animals into your environment without even caring about them too much. Give each animal you see on the street a name and stick with it! Name all the signs in your neighborhood, bathroom stalls, etc. It’s even better if you can work up the courage to pose with the said animal – and don’t forget to have some hilarious photos taken of this happy occasion!
4. Wear animal t-shirts (with permission, of course)
It’s fairly obvious that many people like animals because it’s nice to wear something making fun of this fact. It’s even better if you can make some sort of animal pun on the shirt too. Make sure to have the joke written in a language that your date would understand. This is perfect for a date or a casual hangout with friends.
5. Make a video of you doing something with animals
There’s no reason why you have to be alone in your excitement for animals. You could make a hilarious, animal-focused viral video or share it on social media sites. If the person you are interested in does not have internet access, send them the link and ask them if they want to watch it. The person might want to watch it on their computer or phone so that they can see what you’re talking about without having to go through websites.
6. Take photos of animals for your profile pic
This works really well! It shows that you’re down with giving props to cats and dogs, which are also furry creatures that people find adorable. It also shows that you’re down for taking photos of animals. If your date asks questions and you don’t know how to respond, this is a great way to communicate what you would and would not like to talk about.
7. Tattoo a cute cartoon version of the animal of your choice (with their permission, of course)
This is an excellent way to impress potential dates by doing something creative with a piece of yourself that they will want to see (and maybe even later kiss). It’s also a great way to show off your artistic side and make people wish they could be close enough to touch the art.
8. Work at a zoo, veterinarian clinic, or animal shelter (with their permission, of course)
This has to be the best way to incorporate animals into your life without even counting them as part of it! You get to work with animals every day! This is a good way to make sure that you’re getting out and staying busy. You can even get paid for these places.
There’s also an app called Animal Shelter Finder that lets users find local animal shelters and help this way if you decide to go this route. It’s also a great way to show that you’re active in the community and know where your money is going.
If you love animals, adopting them is a decision you should take seriously. It might even be the best decision you ever make! Look into local shelters or rescue groups in your area to find out where you can adopt a pet that needs a home. You don’t have to choose your animal partner; just scoop up as many as you can and be sure to bring them home with a healthy supply of food and toys. If all else fails, turn your pet over to the nearest animal shelter so that someone else can make the same life-altering choice you have about homeless pets.
