Dating Tips


Sniff out your match

Set yourself some healthy boundaries and make sure your match is respectful of them. Speak up for what you need, what you are and aren't comfortable with, but make sure you aren't too rigid.

Set boundaries for yourself both when using Puppi Lovers and when meeting up with a match in person. Don't feel like you have to  rush anything or do things that you aren't ready to do. You also don't owe anything to your date. You are never required to do anything physically that you don't want to do. If your date doesn't respect your boundaries, please report them to our support team and we will address the issue within 24 hours.

Clear boundaries are vital for our own self-esteem and wellbeing.

Don't wait until a line has been crossed to bring up your boundaries. There is nothing wrong with chatting with your Puppi Lovers match about both your boundaries. And if you happen to enter into a conversation topic that makes you uncomfortable, such as a discussion about salary, family life or politics, it's okay to politely let your match know that you'd prefer not to discuss that topic at this point in time. If your match doesn't respect your boundaries, you need to ask yourself, "Are they the right person for me?"

Be aware of your physical boundaries and plan the amount of intimacy you're comfortable with before you use our doggie directory to set up your date. Think about what you're okay with and what you aren't okay with. This should help you avoid any spontaneous decisions that might put you in a situation you aren't comfortable to be in. You're in the early stages of dating, so it's important that you don't compromise on the things that will help you to feel safe and protected. Plus, the way your date responds to a boundary being set will give you an idea of whether a relationship is worth pursuing or not.
