Android users more likely to get lucky on the first date

Android users more likely to get lucky on the first date
These surveys sure can be fun – earlier this week we reported on findings that Android owners are more likely than other smartphone users to “multi-task” with their devices when sitting on the commode. Today an even more "vital" set of research findings has been made public: the dating habits of smartphone users! According to a poll, Android users are more likely to get lucky on the first date than owners of other flavors of smartphones.

The study was conducted by Zoomerang on users of the dating site Match.com. They found that 62 percent of Android users got their freak on during the first date, while iPhone users trailed at 57%, and BlackBerry users failed to hook up on more than half of their first dates (48%).

Interestingly, BlackBerry users were the most likely to drink on their first date – 72% of BlackBerry owners admitted to imbibing on initial romantic forays. Perhaps that explains this headline from last year? Another study found that BlackBerry owners made more money, so it's possible they can simply afford to buy drinks more often. Or perhaps they turn to alcohol more quickly when it became clear that their dates weren’t progressing at the same rate as their iPhone and Android brethren.

It’s important to note that these statistics are correlative, not causal. If you aren’t finding the success you hoped for through a dating site, ditching your BlackBerry Torch for a Galaxy Nexus won't actually improve your odds of first-date nookie.

All fun aside, the survey also provides a handy warning – whatever smartphone you’re rocking, remember to pry your attention away from it during a date – it turns out people don’t like to be ignored, regardless of what mobile operating system you use.

These percentages seem awfully high. Basically, more than half of people have sex on the first date? Might be fun, but definitely not a wise choice. You should spend some time getting to know each other and making sure they don't have AIDS

This study is retarded. A few months ago, an article was released that stated "girls with iPhones are twice as likely to sleep with you on the first date when compared to Android". These studies don't mean anything...

The two studies mesh perfectly. Men with android would obviously be more manly and virile, while women who settle for an iPhone would be unintelligent, and therefore have lower self esteem and look for attention any way possible, ie. be easy. Just kidding, before anyone rages. These studies are complete hogwash.

Wow, I knew it! I met this chick with an iPhone 4, and she was having problems with autocorrect and said she hated the thing. I told her I had an android, and she said lucky, and then we banged. Well, I named my hand after her, and we banged.... Same thing............. True story, btw.

It's suprising that anyone who is desperate enough to use Match.com is even getting laid.

Here's a rude awakening for you, a couple guy friends of mine and I were at this club a couple of months ago (one of them owned an iPhone), us droid owners only got 2-3 numbers from girls, surprisingly the one with the iPhone got hit alot while we're there, more than us droid owners. But the sad thing about it is that he got hit on by *** guys.
