Doggie Style! [Ask Dr. Miro: What You Didn't Learn In Health Class]

Dear Dr. Miro,

For a third date, with this guy I REALLY like, I invite him over to my place for dinner and what I was hoping would be more. Then, Dude brought his dog with him even though I was VERY clear before he came that it was a BAD idea. This really really bothered me. He also didn’t want to wear a condom when I asked him to!? On just our third date? So, the dog tore apart my room, got dirt everywhere and there was no way I could relax enough to get lucky. Generally I love animals, in fact I have several birds and a cat – which made the dog’s presence even more complicated, and maybe I could learn to love this dog but in the mean time how do I see this guy without his pet that he takes everywhere?

Sincerely,
Frustrated Fanny

Dear FF,

This all sounds like deal breaker material. Why some people insist on forcing their pets on folks who are simply not interested is an entire thing in and of it self. Hey people: nobody finds your fluffy friend as amazing as you do! The bigger issue is the fact you requested a few pretty important things and were ignored. This dismissal of your feelings in regards to bringing his pet with him is completely congruent with not wanting to use a condom. If this guy is unable to hear such simple things in the beginning throws of a relationship, it will be next to impossible later on. No one is questioning your love of animals. What I will call into question is why you would put up with someone who so blatantly ignored your needs.

Lust & Happiness,
Dr. Miro
