February 17, 2021 (Viz Release) – – In a recent OnePoll survey of 2,000 Americans who have used a dating app in the past (half of which were pet owners), 39 percent admitted to swiping right on dating profiles with someone’s dog. Why? They wanted to meet the dog more than they wanted to meet the person.
But on a pet-dating site like FetchaDate, the dating app where pet lovers meet, users just get it. They’re dog lovers already. And downloading this app means singles see the pet first and then choose whether they want to see the human being behind the animal.
“Pets have always been the perfect wingman or wing girl,” says Sheryl Matthys, founder of fetchadate.com. “Dog owners and dog walkers already know that a simple stroll could lead to an easy conversation with a stranger. Sometimes they can’t help themselves. They’ll ask to pet a dog they don’t even know. Our furry friends are irresistible, so it makes sense that FetchaDate would have a WingPet option for you.”
No pet? No problem! On FetchaDate, singles can choose from a variety of virtual pet images that best represent their lifestyles. Choose between dogs and cats as WingPets, or even a horse, parrot, pig, turtle, pig, snake, and more! FetchaDate allows users to give their virtual pet a name and “Fetch 3” personality attributes from a predetermined list.
Human user profiles feature their names; ages; locations; mottos; professions; and fetch 5 interests and personality attributes from a list.
While FetchaDate offers a free version, subscribers can unlock enhanced features like a weekly “Leader of the Pack” Profile Boost and add up to four pets with in-app purchases. The upgrade gives the person’s “WingPet” higher priority in the “fetch Who’s Behind” game, increasing their opportunity to be seen!
“On FetchaDate, our pet-forward profiles offer a more honest bring-your-whole-self approach to dating,” says Sheryl Matthys, founder of the pet-dating app. “You can tell a lot about a person through their pet, and that makes for better matches.”
