British author Aaron Gillies pretty much just solved all of our relationship woes, you guys. It turns out most of us may be overcomplicating things. We all want love and affection and loyalty, but maybe we shouldn't focus on getting those things from a human partner. So what should we be looking for in a relationship?
Dogs. The answer is dogs.
Reasons to be in a relationship:— TechnicallyRon (@TechnicallyRon) April 7, 2018
1. The other person tells you what dogs they saw that day and you then discuss dogs
2. That's it I think
Forget all that other stuff, and just make it about puppers. Even if it's bad, there are still dog pics, and that's always good.
Twitter users seemed to agree:
I went on one date 6 months ago with a guy while I was in Chiago for a week and now he sends me multiple videos a day from the doggos at the doggie daycare where he works and it’s one of the best relationships I’ve ever had.— They call me 乔安/عفراء (@TheyCallMeAfra) April 7, 2018
Damn, being a committed singleton you've now made me question my life choices— Sarah Davis (@iceymonkey) April 7, 2018

This made me remember about the most beautiful dog I saw the other day and 😭*forgot*😭 to tell my SO about 🙏🏻— Ashley🐝 (@AsherToth) April 7, 2018
When I first met my husband I had a severe phobia of dogs. Thankfully he helped me overcome it, and yep, it's all about the dogs.— Millicent (@bicyclegasoline) April 8, 2018
All this talk led to a parade of puppy pics. We know that's what you're here for, so let's get this party started:
So, um... now that we've talked about all these dogs... does that mean we're in a relationship together? Congrats, internet. You're now my bae.
