The stigma of cat lovers has slowly faded away over years after the Internet made them famous.
But, the stigma about men owning cats still remains: They are unsexy.
It’s known that dog is man’s best friend, and dogs will love just about anything.
Cats are only affectionate toward their owners, and you must earn their love.
What does that translate to?
A man who is only into dogs does not work for love and chases the easy catches.
A man who earns a cat’s love fully understands how to earn a woman’s love.
Here are eight reasons why a cat man is boss:
1. Cat men are smart.
Studies show cat lovers tend to be nonconformists, and they score higher on intelligence tests than dog lovers.
A man who does not conform to the norms of society and is capable of having a real f*cking conversation is a win.
2. Cat men mean it when they say, “Netflix and chill.”
Cat lovers love staying in.
So when they invite you over to “Netflix and chill,” they truly mean it.
While they probably are still trying to f*ck you, their intentions are to watch a great movie and enjoy your company.
3. Cat men respect moods.
Many of the ways a typical cat asks for attention correlates to the same way a woman does.
Ignore a cat, and it wants attention.
Give the cat too much attention, and the cat is over you.
It wants you, it needs you and suddenly, its emotions turn and it wants you to go away.
Cat men know how to handle women because they understand balance.
We know how to balance allowing women to have their independence and giving them attention.
They appreciate our multidimensional personalities.
4. Cat men have a sense of humor.
Cats are famous on the Internet for one reason: They’re funny.
Men who love cats appreciate the funny things cats do and find humor in the little things.
A man that can make you laugh is a man you always want to keep around.
5. Cat men don’t side with their bros.
Cat men clearly do not give a f*ck about what anyone thinks, and that includes what their bros think of them.
A man who does not follow the rules of being a “man” also lives by the same values in the bedroom.
Remember when Tony Soprano refused to perform cunnilingus?
6. Cat men understand body language.
Cats do not show their emotions like dogs do.
A cat man knows how to pick up subtle clues from his cat, and he can read yours just as well.
So, the next time you say nothing is wrong, he will know what’s up.
7. Cat men understand commitment.
A cat man is not your typical one-night stand kind of guy.
By getting a cat, he’s committing to a potential 15-year relationship filled with mood swings, scratched furniture and hair everywhere.
Committing to this complex creature is a sign he can handle whatever you have in store for him.
More important, it's a sign he knows how to care for something other than himself.
To sum it up, cat guys are in it for the long haul.
8. Cat men are loyal.
Dogs will run to anyone for love, while cats remain loyal to their owners.
These hoes ain’t loyal, and by hoes, I mean dog lovers.
Cat men don’t chase a lot of women; they provide lifelong companionships.
While society still labels owning a cat as “feminine,” there is nothing more sexy than a man who is secure with himself and shows women he loves something other than beer and football.
And most importantly, he is willing to be vulnerable.
A cat man is mature, open and balanced enough to be an incredible boyfriend.
