Finding Love Through Fido
Dating Service for Pet Lovers Links Couples Whose Romance Warms Hearts
WASHINGTON, Feb. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Melanie Taylor, a 38-year-old single attorney from Arlington, Virginia, had no interest in local singles parties.
Then she learned that Mai Mai, her Mom's Shi Tzu, was invited to one since the party was being hosted by Animal Attraction.com. "No way!" quickly
turned into, "Hmm, maybe I can meet some guys who LOVE dogs instead of guys who ARE dogs."Just one year later, Melanie will be spending Valentine's Day, 2005 with Ted Hooban, a 34-year-old single male whom she met at an Animal Attraction.com party last year. A member of Animal Attraction.com, Ted heard about last year's event and thought he had nothing to lose by stopping by with his seven- year-old Rhodesian Ridgeback Mix, Cuki. The dating service for pet lovers is coincidentally marking its first year as a howling success. See http://www.animalattraction.com/.
This is what Dan Cohen, a former marketing executive, envisioned based on his experience when he stumbled across a restaurant with a patio where dog owners were gathered with their pets."I was struck by the warmth and friendliness and how people were connecting through their love of pets. It was a lot better than the singles clubs I had tried."Of their experience, Melanie now says: "I could tell he was a nice guy by the way he handled his dog." And Ted said: "Her dog was cute but she was even cuter.""They are now a couple as are others who met at animalattraction.com," says Cohen.After dating for nine months, Melanie and Ted recently moved in together.For more information on Animal Attraction.com, visit http://www.animalattraction.com/press.asp
