The Search For Love, As Told By Cats In Boxes

It’s tough out there on the dating scene. These cats totally get it.

1. Okay, so you’re single. You’re alone. That’s right; I said it. ALONE.

2. And what you want more than anything is someone to cuddle up to at night, to complement you perfectly.

3. But you’ve got your guard up, and for good reason. It’s important to protect yourself!

4. There are some real creeps out there. No denying it.

5. But it’s time to get out there in the dating scene again. Time to get your feet wet, test the waters.

6. It’s okay that you’re scared. Dating is scary! That doesn’t mean it’s not worthwhile though.

7. It’s time to have an open mind about people, even if they don’t always provide the perfect fit.

8. Like, really not the perfect fit.

9. Okay, like not fitting at all. Not even a little bit.

10. See, right now you’re embarking on the journey of a lifetime, of finding someone to spend your life with…
