Have a crush on a co-worker?
You probably have an iPhone.
Prone to giving it up on the first date?
You may have an Android in your pocket.
A new survey provides a glimpse into the distinct love lives of iPhone, BlackBerry and Android users.
“The type of phone a person uses can be a window into their personality,” said Kimberly Moffit, relationship expert for Match.com, which requisitioned the Zoomerang survey.
“More so than zodiac signs or astrology, smart phones are the new way Canadian singles can decode their dating style and determine if they’ve met their match,” she said in a press release.
Androids appear to be the most promiscuous of the smart phone using variety – being the most likely to have sex on a first date – while BlackBerry owners are the booze hounds of the bunch.
So, I think the take home message is: if you don’t want your date to think you’re a drunken floozy, be smart and keep your smart phone out of sight.
Which phone do you (or your love interest) have?
iPhone: “The Office Romantic”
- iPhone addicts are the most likely to date someone in their workplace. Nearly a quarter of iPhone singles have had an office romance in the last five years.
- After a first date, iPhone users are most likely to wait one day to reach out, while Android or BlackBerry users will wait until after two or three dates.
Android: “The Seducer”
- Android users are most likely to have sex on a first date. Sixty-two per cent of Android singles say they’ve done the deed after date No. 1, compared to 57% of iPhone users and 48% of BlackBerry users.
- Out of all smart phone users, Android fans are most likely to have a one-night stand (55%).
- More than 70% of Android fans have visited an online dating site, compared to 58% of iPhone users and 50% of BlackBerry users.
BlackBerry: “The Drunk Dialer”
- BlackBerry users are most likely to drink alcohol on a first date – 72% will have a boozy beverage on a first night out.
- Sixty-seven per cent of BlackBerry users say they have experienced love at first sight.
More than 1,000 Canadians were surveyed online from Oct. 13 to 15, 2011.
