Dating used to be so complicated for single pet owners in the city.

But now, with the help of Paws 2 People, it’s never been easier! Our professional matchmakers and skilled algorithm have joined forces to create the best dating app for single pet lovers in the Tampa Bay region and beyond.

All you have to do is create a profile, fill out some information about you (and of course your four-legged friend), and you’ll instantly put our powerful search tools to work to match you with people who have similar interests, lifestyles, and more.

We’ve always thought it was necessary to create an all-inclusive app for people to find others who are just as crazy about their pets. That’s exactly the mission of Paws 2 People.

However, there’s more to finding true love than simply matching you with someone else on our app — you also have to take them on a date!

In Tampa Bay, there is no shortage of pet-friendly date options which would be great for you, your furry friend, and your potential match. Here are just a few:

Dog Parks

Fun and accessible, dog parks are all over the fair Tampa Bay region. Meeting up with your date at one of these playgrounds for puppers would be a great way to get to know one another while your dogs mingle and frolic about.

Logan Gate Dog Park in Tampa is consistently rated as one of the best dog parks in Hillsborough County, with fresh water and separate areas for small and large dogs.

If you’re looking for a fun-filled date with the doggos, then this is a great place to start. Perhaps you could spice it up and surprise your date by bringing supplies for a picnic right at the park.

Drive-In Movie

One of the most traditional “first dates” is of course the classic dinner-and-a-movie. But when you have to account for pets, this option isn’t always feasible.

Unless you opt to go for a blast from the past and head to the drive-in movie theater! Check out Tampa’s Fun-Lan Drive In, which is open practically every night with a pair of shows from which to choose.

You and your date can snuggle up in the car alongside your pets while taking in the latest blockbuster hit on the big screen. Just don’t forget the snacks!

Hit The Beach

What could be more romantic on a first date than relaxing with your toes in the sand while watching the sunset right on the beach?

Your pets will love the freedom and adventure that the beach provides, while you and your date can get to know one another in an intimate, breathtaking setting.

Apollo Beach is one of Tampa’s best dog-friendly beaches, with picnic tables galore and minimal pet restrictions.

Stay In

Hey, who says you have to go out on the town to have a great first night?

Single pet owners might concur that staying home with their fur balls might be the best option, particularly if they are younger pets. If that’s the case, then plan an adventure that is suitable for the comfort of your own home.

You can learn how to cook a new dish together, watch some movies, and get to know each other without having to worry about accomodations for the pets.
