Do you like animals or people better?

bayosgirl bayosgirl
Might seem like a strange question, but I've always liked animals more than people. Animals don't hurt each other with any intent other than survival. They're always honest; they never lie and let you down. When I was left at home alone as a 5 year old and up, my only companions were my pets who I loved so dearly. Every single person in my life has let me down, except my husband. I'm sick of people. I don't want to try to be sociable and make friends anymore. It's a waste of effort because they'll just leave or mistreat me in the end.

Animals, definitely. As a whole, people suck.

Thank you! I can't tell you how many people have told me I "shouldn't feel that way." Just one more reason they suck...lol.

For argument sake, people are animals.

But, I enjoy people. I hate most pet-based animals and want nothing to do with them. I just don't like animals in general.

As a whole, I like animals. They're innocent and all have so much incredible personality, I really love animals. But, I can't say that I don't like people, just as a WHOLE people tend to be gross. XD I am definitely a people person though, I love being social, just with the right people.

I do actually, generally, like people better than animals. I know the perception is that animals are sweet, gentle, kind, forgiving and all that but I have found that actually these emotions belong to people not to animals. Yes, people can hurt you but people can also lift you up and help you build a life that makes it harder and harder for other people to destroy you.

I love animals of all kind, I love their simple complexities and their alien thinking, but they cannot take the place of a loving person who can hold you close while you cry, agree with you when your heart feels like it is being ripped apart, and offer you words that soothe and comfort.

My animals love me, they show me that, but they really don't understand when I grieve for what I might have had with my father who smoked himself into an early grave. My husband, who's father has actively told him that he doesn't have time in his life for a son, understands and grieves with me. My life partner, who just learned things about his father that have left him shaken and angry, can share his pain and understand mine as well. My cat, however, can only purr and look confused when I cry. He tries to comfort me but he can't say the words I need to hear. He can't say, "I understand, and I am so sorry."

So ya, I have to say after many years of saying that animals are better than people that I have found that people are just a bit of a better animal in my book.

Animals don't talk back. It's just like that billy currington song!
Like My Dog lyrics
Songwriters: Harley Allen;Scott Emerick



He never tells me that he's sick of this house
He never says, "Why don't you get off that couch?"
He don't cost me nothin' when he wants to go out
I want you to love me like my dog

He never says I need a new attitude
Him and my sister ain't always in a feud
When I leave the seat up, he don't think that's rude
I want you to love me like my dog does baby

When I come home want you to just go crazy
He never looks at me like he might hate me
I want you to love me like my dog

He never acts like he don't care for my friends
[| From: link |]
He never asks me "Where 'n the hell have you been?"
He don't play dead when I want to pet him
I want you to love my like my dog does, honey

He never says, "I wish you made more money"
He always thinks that pull my finger's funny
I want you to love me like my dog

He don't get made at me and throw a major fit
When I say his sister is a bitch

I want you to love me like my dog does, baby
When I come home, want you to just go crazy
He never looks at me like he might hate me
I want you to love me like my dog

I want you to love me like my dog does, baby

Animals are just so much more real, and honest.

I feel like I should say people, but I'm saying animals. As much as I love the people in my life I have had connection to animals that run much deeper. Animals are smart, loving, and don't talk back, lol.

I like people more and I am not even a people person. Nor am I an animal person. People are the most complex and interesting animal on the planet. YES, most people just plain suck but no animal is as beneficial as finding the few humans that are truly worth it. Animals are only of interest if it is necessary for human welfare, I could careless about animals themselves.

That was so well articulated. I agree completely.

While I love animals very deeply and connect with them on a very primal level, humans have so much more to offer in the realms of connection, conversation and real understanding.

Am I weird? People, easily. I like animals too, but you can't connect on a deeper level with an animal. Yeah, people suck sometimes, but we're complicated creatures. All the ways we feel about animals are understood by our very complex, very fascinating minds. And I'm assuming we're really talking about pets, here. I don't know if I'd say a bear or a tiger, or a caribou or a sloth is loyal, sweet, or honest...I'm not really sure animals can be honest though, since that requires the ability to be deceptive and dishonest with some ulterior motive, which requires a higher functioning brain. In any case, I think we romanticize animals when we are down on people. There is a wide range of behavior and nature in the animal kingdom. People can vary a lot as well, but there are some fundamental things that we understand to be very human and that connects us all. We really need one another, too. Animals are nice, but given the choice, people are more important to me, no contest.
