9 Amazing Things That Happen When Dog Owners Date Cat Owners

9 Amazing Things That Happen When Dog Owners Date Cat Owners

While studies claim that cat owners are smarter, studies also claim that dog owners are more social, active and caring. Yet when people who own different animals come together in a relationship a lot of interesting things are bound to happen. Having pets bring some special moments in a relationship and some of these moments are worth considering.

1. They embrace loyalty

Raising a dog or a cat takes loyalty. When dog owners and cat owners date, they embrace commitment and loyalty of being there for each other. They break through boundaries but focus on being the ideal lover that makes the other understand what it means to be there for them.

2. They explore new territories

If you are a dog owner and you date a cat owner, you are bound to go out of your borders and discover new territories whether in your homes or outdoor. You learn that you do not have to get stuck but have to commit to discovery and searching for new places and territories.

3. They become more sociable

Let’s face it, it takes tolerance on your part to be with a partner who has a different pet from yours. When you start dating a cat or dog owner you start becoming more sociable and more interesting to be with. It becomes easier for your partner to get along with you. Dog owners and cat owners can connect not only with themselves but with their environments.

4. They discover each other

Dog and cat owners have a strong sense of attachment and bonding. It is easier for such owners to bond with each other through cuddling and spending time on intimacy. They can lean on each other for support and be a huge pillar of learning for the other person. And trust me there is nothing cuter than watching an owner taking a nap with their pet.

5. There is something sexy about the relationship

With the cuddling and the times spent going on the walks, there is something sexy about the relationship. You can have each other to thank for being there and the interest you need to have on the other person builds love and warmth.

6. The pictures together are remarkable

An interesting experience that comes with this is that you can have a memorable photo with you two holding each other’s pets. It is like one big family with male and female kids. There is that spark in coming together and establishing common grounds as you enjoy each other’s company.

7. The relationship is built on responsibility

Caring for animals can come with its challenges. It is a process that requires patience and commitment. Whatever decisions you are making together has to come with the fact that you will have to put your pets into consideration. Being able to put the interest of your pets sometimes above yours is an admirable quality. Such quality requires patience and commitment, something that is required to make any relationship succeed.

8. Forgiveness helps you discover new possibilities

Pets can come with some messiness. Accidents could happen. Yet a pet owner should know how to deal with these. They have to learn to deal with their pets and learn from mistakes as they nurture their pets. When dog and cat owners date they learn to have fun, appreciate the messiness their pets cause and find some excitement in the journey of making a cute family. What is important at the end of the day is that their pets are happy and comfortable with their owners.

9. There is more energy in the relationship

Being around pets sort of gives you and your partner more energy. Proximity to your dog and cat makes the relationship more energized. You can find joy in being tasked every now and then. Certainly there will be no ideal moments.

6 Ways to Be a Successful Risk Taker and Take More Chances

6 Ways to Be a Successful Risk Taker and Take More Chances

I’ve stood on the edge of my own personal cliffs many times. Each time I jumped, something different happened. There were risks that started off great, but eventually faded. There were risks that left me falling until I hit the ground. There were risks that started slow, but built into massive successes.

Every risk is different, but every risk is the same. You need to have some fundamentals ready before you jump, but not too many.

It wouldn’t be a risk if you knew everything that was about to happen, would it? Here’re 6 ways to be a successful risk taker.

1. Understand That Failure Is Going to Happen a Lot

It’s part of life. Everything we do has failure attached to it. All successful people have stories of massive failure attached to them. Thinking that your risk is going to be pain free and run as smooth as silk is insane.

Expect some pain and failure. Actually, expect a lot of it. Expect the sleepless nights with crazy thoughts of insecurity that leave you trembling under the covers. It’s going to happen, no matter how positive you are about the risk you are about to take.

When failure hits, the only options are to keep going or quit. If you expect falling into a meadow of flowers and frolicking unicorns, then you’re going to immediately quit once you realize that getting to that meadow requires you to go through a rock filled cave filled with hungry bats.

2. Trust the Muse

Writing a story isn’t a big risk. It’s really just a risk on my time. So when I start writing a story, I’m scared it will be time wasted. Of course, it never really is. Even if the story doesn’t turn out fabulous, I still practiced.

When I’ve taken risks in my life, the successful ones always seemed to happen when I followed the muse. Steven Pressfield describes the muse,

“The Muse demands depth. Shallow does not work for her. If we’re seeking her help, we can’t stay in the kiddie end. When we work, we have to go hard and go deep.”

The muse is a goddess who wants our attention and wants us to work on our passion.

If you’re taking a risk in anything, it’s assumed that there is some passion built up behind that risk. That passion, deep inside you, is the muse. Trust it, focus on it, listen to it.

The most successful articles and stories I write are the ones I’ve focused all my attention on. There were no interruptions during their creative development. I didn’t check my phone or go watch my Twitter feed. I was fully engaged in my work.

Trust the muse, focus your attention on your risk, let the ideas and path develop themselves, and leave the distractions at the side of the road.

3. Remember to Be Authentic

Taking a risk and then turning into something you’re not, is only going to lead to disaster. Whether you are risking a new relationship or new opportunity, you must be yourself throughout the entire process.

How many times have you acted like you loved something just because the men or woman you just started going out with loved it?

For example, I’m not an office worker. I have an incredibly hard time working in a confined timeline (ie. 9-5). That’s why I write. I can do it whenever the mood strikes, I don’t have somebody breathing down my neck, telling me that I’m five minutes late, or missed a comma somewhere. I don’t have to walk on eggshells wondering if what I’m writing will get me fired or make me lose a promotion. I can just be myself, period.

One girlfriend didn’t understand that. She believed solely in the 9-5 motto, specifically something in human resources because that was a very stable job. I was scared for my future, but I stuck with the relationship because of my own insecurities and acted like I would do it to make her happy.

Here’s a tip: NEVER take away from your happiness to make somebody else satisfied (note I didn’t say happy).

Making somebody else happy will make you happy. Doing something to satisfy somebody is murder on your soul.

4. Don’t Take Any Risks While You’re Not Clearheaded

I’d been considering the risk for a couple weeks. It all sounded good. I was 22 and I could be rich in a couple of years. That’s what they were selling me, anyways.

One night, while at a house party with some friends, I found myself at a computer. A couple of my friends were standing nearby and asked me what I was doing. I told them I was considering starting my own business and it was only going to cost me $1,500.

Of course, when a bunch of drunk people are surrounded by more drunk people, things get enthusiastic. It sounded like the best business venture in the world to everybody, including me. So I signed up and gave them my credit card number.

A few painful months and close to $4,000 dollars lost later, I quit the business. I was young and fell into the pyramid scheme trap. It was an expensive drunk decision.

Drinking heavily and making decisions has a proven track record of failure. So when you have something important to decide, don’t let your emotions take over your brain.

5. Fully Understand What You’re Risking

It was the start of my baseball comeback. I got a tryout with a professional scout and killed it. After the tryout, he talked to my girlfriend and myself, making sure we understood I would be gone for up to 6 months at a time. That strain on the relationship could be tough.

We understood. I left to play ball, chose to stay in the city I played in, and a year later we broke up. Not because of baseball, see point 3 above. Taking big risks can have massive impacts on everything in your life from relationships to money. Know what you’re risking before you take the risk.

If you believe the risk will be worth it or you have the support you need from your family, then go ahead and make the leap.

6. Remember This Is Your One Shot Only

As far as we know officially, this is our one shot at life, so why not take some risks?

The top thing people are saddened by on their deathbeds are these regrets. They wish they did more, asked that girl in the coffee shop out, spoke out when they should have, or did what they were passionate about.

Don’t regret. Learn and experience. Live. Take the risks you believe in. Be yourself and make the world a better place.

Now go ahead, take that risk and be successful at it!
