Is he a dog lover or a cat lover? Does it matter?

I'm a dog person. I'm allergic to cats. In case of a fire I'd grab both -- no preference to one over the other. But in my heart of hears, I'm a dog person. I can't help it. I melt for happy tail wagging, high energy, run-me-over Dino Flinstone type pets. I blame my parents for allowing early morning cartoons.

What about you? Are you swooning over a dog person or a cat person? Not sure? Wondering what it matters anyway? All great questions.

Hunch.com recently surveyed more than 200,000 pet parents to find out if they were dog people or cat people. The site then crossed those responses with lifestyle surveys and came up with some interesting conclusions. Yahoo's Shine posted the answers online.

Is your date an extrovert or an introvert?
Dog people are 15% more likely to be extroverts, while cat people are 11% more likely to be introverts.

Does your date's cell phone have a pop ring to it?
Dog people are 36% more likely to use a pop song as a ringtone.

A little too clingy?
Surprisingly, owners of felines are 14% more likely to cling to friends at a party. And here we thought cats and thus cat parents were more likely to fly solo. Who knew?

What's your date's favorite Beatle?
Is it Paul McCartney? Then s/he's more likely to be a dog person (by 18%). Is it George Harrison? Cat person -- 25% pick.

Is your date just loving the latest laugh-out-loud flick or sitcom?
That hints toward a dog person -- dog people are 30% more likely to enjoy slapstick humor and impressions... not cat people, noooo, they more Frazier than Friends. Cat people are
21% more likely to enjoy ironic humor and puns.

So, what does it all matter? Well - it's not exactly deal-breaker material but these little nuggets of information can help you piece together a bigger puzzle. Do you own a cat
or dog? Let's start there. You and your pet form a complete package. It's not Fido or Fluffy that need to go (they're family). So, stock up on Benadryl and 'splain the ground rules.

Presuming you don't have a pet and you just like one type of pet more than the other -- knowing your date's preference can help you choose a great movie you'll both enjoy and give you a heads up on how he or she might behave at a party.

Again, nothing to bank on -- just a bit of useful or useless trivia. I'm guessing how you view it depends on whether you're a dog person or a cat person. I don't know... Hunch didn't ask.
