Sometimes it isn't the right time, or even the right person, and that's okay. Learn from each date and bounce back from any slip-ups. It's all a part of the dating experience, and once you accept that, you'll start to have more fun. And remember, there's always the next match.
Try not to over-invest too early on. Look for someone you're compatible with, who has the same goals and similar commitment in life. It takes time. It will take more than a couple of dates to figure out all of this - no matter how enchanting your date may be.
Dogs are great and meeting other dog lovers is also fun. Puppi Lovers is a great way to meet people across the country and more. Don't be afraid to put yourself out there - you might just meet someone as special and unique as you. Having love for your dog is just the beginning.
