Study claims Android users are more likely to have sex on the first date

Can your smartphone say something about your love life? That's what a new study seems to claim. Online dating site Match.com has released the results of a new study of over 1,000 Canadians to find out how smartphones can affect a person's romantic life. The study claims that 75 percent of singles believe that email and texts have "significantly improved their dating life."

But what about specific smartphone operating systems? If you own an iOS device like Apple's iPhone, the study claims that you are apparently more likely to date someone in your workplace. You are also more likely to contact someone just one day after a first date, while Android and Blackberry users are more likely to wait two or three days before contacting their date.

Blackberry users like to drink more, with the survey claiming that 72 percent will have an alcoholic beverage on a first date; 67 percent of Blackberry users also believe they have felt love at first sight (awwww).

Android smartphone owners seem to be the..ahem, most liberal of the smartphone world. The survey claims that 62 percent of Android smartphone owners have sex on the first date, compared to 57 percent of iPhone owners and 48 percent of Blackberry owners. In addition, 55 percent of Android owners said they are likely to have a one night stand. Finally, 72 percent of Android owners have visited an online dating site.

What about Symbian users?
Not only are they willing to have sex 100% of the time, they also get laid every time.

*looks at title*...
"author: John Callaham".. That explains it.
I don't bother reading his articles anymore. Usually the title is misleading and the content is either repetitive or is strewn with the author's opinions.

Jesus that is exactly the kind of study I like to read!
But that is bad news for me as I am using an iPhone. The bad part is that my work environment is almost only men ah!

I'm a Windows Phone user, and I would love to be a slut. I'm just too busy with projects at the moment, though.

Androids are easy to hack, so their masters are easy to f**k !
completely understandable, who cares about malware if they just getting laid, right ?

People that waste time studying such stuff should try and get a job and a role in life that actually has some meaning.

Assuming this data was submitted voluntarily my read is that most iPhone & Android smartphone owners, at least those using the dating service, ummm, lie. That would also make the Android folks the most prolific liers, & Blackberry users [slightly] more trustworthy.

I think it says something about certain women willing to have sex on the first date, rather that what phone a guy has. I have three Androids, but I haven't had a date lead into a foursome...yet.

1. Does it have to be active with Verizon, sprint etc.
2. Gingerbread or Ice Crème
3. What if you take both iPhone and Android phone (3some maybe)
4. What if it's a tablet and not a phone
5. If I don't get any do I get a refund?

Man so many question....

Yeah, you should definitely ask a sales rep... LOL

LOL.

So the moral of the story is, if you are going on a date, make sure the female uses an android phone?

And DON'T get an Android phone for your daughter...

Sorry if that's your opinion.

Why do people bother conducting such stupid surveys? Making conclusions or extrapolations based on the results of such surveys is even more idiotic. It's a waste of time and resources.

I asked 2 people with android devices and 2 people with iPhones if this was a bulls*** article... surprisingly they all said yes.

Statistically, two of them then did it with you.

This is embarrassing to be classed as news.
I think you should remove it really.

No, what's embarrassing is this has been posted on several other news related sites for over a week. Much more embarrassing than the content.

This is the most pathetic study I have ever come across. If they have nothing to do, please ask people for work or for topic for study, but do not waste your resources on such study.

There is another , Android users more likely to s*** while using their smartphones.

Nearly three in four Americans questioned in a recent survey admitted using their smartphone while on the toilet. But Android users were the most likely to do the dirty.

The survey, conducted by 11mark, questioned 1,000 people. It found that 74 percent of men and 76 percent of women admitted to bathroom phone use. Broken down by operating system, 87 percent of Android users said they used their phone while on the toilet, compared with 84 percent of BlackBerry users and 77 percent of iPhone users....

Think I've seen that before, but from a study by OkCupid or whatever it was...
Either way, both statements could be true, just because an Android user might be more likely to have/want to have sex on the first date doesn't mean that an iPhone user end up having more sex in the end be it due to a steady relationship with plenty of it or a lot of dates...

Hmmm... This all is a pretty pointless discussion isnt it?
