The caveat is that this study directly contradicts a previous study — this one by dating site Zoosk — that says that pictures of you with animals are terrible. While I have done approximately zero statistical research of my own, I can say with almost 100 percent confidence that some attractive people have dogs and some attractive people do not have dogs.
According to , having other mammals in your profile pic — friends or dogs, doesn’t matter — drastically reduces your online popularity and the photo of you holding that Schnauzer is pretty much the reason you are alone. Armed with that information, you should feel comfortable taking pictures of yourself either with a dog, or without a dog, depending on dog availability and your own personal preferences.
Since a significant number of men and women will entirely disregard online profiles posted without pictures, one limits oneself substantially by choosing not to post a picture online.
When I’m working with our dating coaching clients on their online profiles and communications, one of the first things I do is to ensure that the picture(s) the client posts online is (are) a recent and accurate representation of the best version of their authentic self.
I've got a number of brilliant, beautiful, frank, funny friends, all capable of remarkable things, but writing an enticing online profile does not seem to be one of them. Some people offer their services in soup kitchens, some volunteer to shampoo crude oil off of sad, gooey pelicans; I rewrite online dating profiles.
