So, you’re heading into 2016 single and lonely, huh?
Do your New Year’s plans look like this:
And are you afraid your New Year’s Eve will end like this?
Well, guess what? Buck up! There’s nothing wrong with being single on New Year’s Eve, and there’s nothing embarrassing about snagging a smooch from your pooch at midnight either. Here’s why:
1. NO COMMITMENT
Your dog isn’t going to mistaken your kiss as an invitation to be exclusive.
2. NO WORRYING ON SENDING THE WRONG MESSAGES
An innocent midnight kiss won’t get misconstrued as an invitation to third base.
“Theres room for one more.” #PervertedEyeWink
And you don’t have to worry about the awkward morning after either.
“Um, I have to run to the dog park later. Do you have somewhere to go, or…?”
3. IT’S OVERRATED
People make a big deal about kissing at midnight and expect it to look like this…
…when really it looks more like this:
Or even this:
4. NO WORRYING OVER YOUR DATE PUKING ON YOU LATER
At least your dog won’t be pounding down Jager bombs and passing out in your lap. But then again, since dogs are dogs, they might just puke on you anyway.
5. NO JUDGMENT
Your dog won’t judge you if your kissing game is off. In fact, all your dog will care about is whether or not you ate pizza that day.
“Hmm, I detect a slight aroma of bacon…possibly from farm-raised pigs from California…with a full-bodied smokey flavor courtesy of organic hickory flakes.” #DogSommelier
6. NO PRESSURE
It’s pretty hard to feel intimidated when your date is a naked dingus who just licked itself all afternoon.
7. NO WORRIES OF PERFECTION
Yep, a true magical moment…until your dog farts in your face.
8. YOUR DOG HAS MORE SWAG THAN YOU THINK
I mean, how can you resist his charm?
9. YOU’LL HURT YOUR DOG’S FEELINGS
Your dog might take your lack of New Year’s affection as an offense.
“Oh, she’s kissing that human male instead of me? Huh. Keep it together. Don’t let them see you cry.”
10. DOGS ARE AWESOME, DUH
Do you really need an excuse to kiss your dog? Forget all those obnoxious couples this New Year’s. They don’t have what you and your dog have. Now pucker up!
