A lot of people in the world own a pet for their presence and to feel the empty void of loneliness. However, once you do get someone to join your life, it may be hard to balance the presence of the person you love and the pet that has helped you get past being by yourself before you found someone. The obvious choice would be to make your date the number one priority, but it may also be hard for you to give up on your pet.
Therefore, in this article, we will guide you on how you can balance and manage your time between your date and your pet, so that both can be satisfied by you being there for them and focusing your attention towards them. However, always remember that everything is different on a case by case basis, so note the personalities of your pet and your date and make sure you fit their needs by following our base tips.
How to Balance & Manage Your Time
First, make sure that you realize that your date is a human just like you and your pet is an animal. By knowing this, managing your time will become a lot easier, as most people in this situation seem to act like their pet is also another human being and requires as much of an attention as a human being does. This is mostly because they have been placed in a role where they were playing the human role to satisfy the void, and by you realizing that your pet is indeed not human, you will have an easier time managing your time.
Second, you can make this entire thing work without any more steps if you can make this tip work for you. It may not work for everyone, but if it does fit you and your situation, you are in for luck. Find a relationship between your date and your pet, such as your date also owning a cat as well. If so, you can bring them over to your house and let the cats keep themselves company while you and your date have a great time. If your date also happens to like cats, you can your cat be the center of both your attention, and it’ll be a great way to spend your time together with both your date and your cat. Two birds with one stone!
Our third tip is to keep your pet at an animal school or hire a pet sitter while you are gone on a date. This is the last choice you should resort to, but it is one that both your pet and your date is going to appreciate. Your pet won’t be in your mind while you are on your date, since you know it will be safe with professionals that have love and care for pets as their job. Your pet will also be in great hands, so it won’t feel lonely or feel empty without your presence being there for it.
Transitioning from being single with a pet as your best buddy into a relationship with your pet left to the side is a hard thing to do, especially if you have no experience in doing so. But by using our tips above, you should have an easier time transitioning, as your pet will feel like you are dedicating the same amount of focus to them, while you are going out with your date often without worrying about your pet as much. Sometimes, it’s best to change your attention for a while, so that you can progress further with your dating life, so that it will be easier for you to take care of your buddy later in the future, rather than focusing on it your entire life and never being able to find someone to have a relationship with. Set your goals and follow them, using our tips, it won’t be too hard. We promise!…
