Ok, now this is just too cute for words. There are all kinds of online dating models (not models dating online, calm down fellas), including the online dating service which performs criminal background checks, the poorly named PlentyOffish.com (geez guys, yes, it was tongue-in-cheek, but also served to highlight how you really need to think when picking a domain name), and the online dating site for golfers.

There’s even a place where you can register all your sex partners, in an adult version of the social networking model pioneered by Linked-In.


But now, this one takes the cake for pure cutesy:

Real-Life Dog Lovers Find True Love on AnimalAttraction.com

WASHINGTON, July 29 /PRNewswire/ — Heather McLean and Chris Murphy can’t
wait to see “Must Love Dogs” this weekend, the major motion picture starring
Diane Lane and John Cusack. Like Sarah Nolan (Lane’s character) and Jake
Anderson (Cusack’s character), Heather and Chris were brought together by the
seemingly unlikely combination of dogs and online dating.

Heather, a 36-year-old divorced woman from St. Louis with two dogs, had
never even considered trying online dating before she read a local newspaper
article that mentioned AnimalAttraction.com (http://www.animalattraction.com),
an online dating site created specifically for pet lovers.

She immediately thought, “Wouldn’t it be nice to meet some guys who LOVE
dogs, instead of guys who ARE dogs!”

A few days after joining, she met Chris, a 37-year-old single guy from the
Raleigh/Durham area in North Carolina. Like Heather, Chris had also read
about AnimalAttraction.com in a local paper. He had given up on other dating
sites, thinking that they simply didn’t deliver on their promises, but decided
that meeting other pet lovers could be different.

 

“I spent a few months making friends in the chat rooms, but didn’t uncover
any romantic prospects, until one day Heather popped up in there and we
chatted until the wee hours of the morning. A few weeks, phone calls and
emails later, we decided to actually meet so I flew to St. Louis to meet
Heather, Toby (Heather’s 7-year-old Rottweiler) and Tootsie (Heather’s 4-year
old-mutt),” Murphy stated.

“Toby approached Chris barking, like he usually does with men, but Chris
just stood there and in the nicest voice kept saying hi to him and telling him
it was ok,” said Heather. “Within a few minutes Toby went into ‘pet me’ mode
and seemed to fall in love with Chris. That Chris was both confident and kind
with Toby immediately told me he was a strong and caring man, which was very
attractive to me. After a wonderful four-day weekend, we decided to move in
together. Since June, Chris, and I, and his dog Yuki, and my dogs have been
living happily together and we’re all looking forward to a long, healthy
relationship, thanks to AnimalAttraction.com.”

This type of happy ending is exactly what Dan Cohen, Founder of
AnimalAttraction.com envisioned when he launched the site in May of 2004.
Cohen, 36, is an MBA from the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern
University and former vice president of sales for the Washington Redskins
football team. He’s also the proud owner of Buddy, a 1 and 1/2 year old
Shepherd/Rottweiler mix, and knows firsthand the passion of pet lovers.

“Pet lovers are warm, caring and responsible people and whether you’re
looking for a friend, a date, or a long term relationship, those are great
qualities to have. We’re thrilled to see ‘Must Love Dogs’ bringing to the
national spotlight what we, and our tens of thousands of members, have been
preaching for more than a year now: that pet lovers are a special breed and
they deserve a place to connect with one another that was created especially
for them,” Cohen stated.
