The kind of phone a person owns can say a lot about the kind of lifestyle they lead. For example, it's a well-known fact that BlackBerrys are generally seen as the businessman's smartphone while iOS or Android devices are typically used for more social or casual correspondences. However, what you might not know, is that your phone can also apparently say something about your dating habits.
Match.com recently did a survey on the dating habits of more than 1000 of its Canadian users and compared that data to the kind of phones they use. iPhone users were dubbed 'The Office Romantic' as they were found to be most likely to date someone from work. They're also guilty of calling after only about a day has passed since the date, while Android and BlackBerry users will play it cool by waiting two or even three days.
Android users are given the label of 'the seducers.' Not only are they the most likely to be seduced on the first date, but 62 percent say they've had sex after the first date, compared to 57 percent of iPhone users. BlackBerry users wait the longest, with only 48 percent saying they have sealed the deal after the first date. According to the survey's results (via VentureBeat) Android users are also the most likely to have a one night stand.
The BlackBerry users seem to be the shy romantic types, coming away with the top spot for the most likely to indulge in an alcoholic beverage on the first date and the most likely to fall in love at first sight. According to Match.com's survey, 72 percent of BlackBerry users will have an alcoholic drink on the first date, and 67 percent say they have experienced love at first sight.
Aside from their tendency to get jiggy with it on the first date, Android users are also the most active in online dating. The survey revealed that 72 percent of Android users have visited online dating sites. This compares to just 50 percent of BlackBerry users and 58 percent of iPhone users. Out of all smart phone users, Android fans are most likely to have a one-night stand (55 percent).
So, what kind of phone do you have?
