Is your phone hurting your dating life?

by Volker Weber

Those who are loyal to Team iPhone are in luck as a huge 70% of singles would rather date someone with an iPhone than an Android user. That’s because they think the iPhone is a classier option: “When I think of Samsung, I just think it’s kinda bummy.”

Früher hieß das "jeder Popel fährt 'nen Opel."

Summary:
Having expensive things (cars, phones, clothes, etc) tends to make you more appealing while dating. If you have an iPhone, this is even a stronger impact.
Yet again, confirming human nature.

Considering that plenty of high end Android phones are at about the same level as an iPhone that might be a bit short sighted. Also, money your date spends on themself they can't spend on you. Your loss.

Sorry Singles. Being married and giving an iPhone to your wife as a present is still unbeatable.

Axel, all the pretty girls have an iPhone. ;-)

For dating iPhone and Porsche. For finding a true partner for life android and no prestige car. Just in order to make sure she is in it for you and not for your phone.

For keeping a true partner for life: 2 iPhones and a Porsche :)

Tststs ... you guys are just not up to date. iPhone and VW T1 Samba in pristine condition. If you want to be cool like Dave Grohl and want to date the cool girls with a personality and not just potential trophy wifes.

Der Manta war auch ein tolles Auto *duck* ;)

It's funny how different this is perceived. For me an iPhone always looks rather superficial, while Android means depth and seriousness. In the end, of course, that's just as stupid as the other way around.

As a happy and obfusly not pretty girl, I've married an android user. Maybe because I'm an android user, too? Maybe because I prefer geeky and nerdy? Only I know ;)

Du liebst ihn nur, weil er ein Auto hat und nicht wie ich ein klappriges Damenrad....

Armin Grewe, 2018-07-20

*lol*
Das gefällt mir. Frauen werden dich für deinen Humor lieben.
Aber: bevor ich ihn geheiratet habe, sind wir mein Auto gefahren ;)

Ich habe leider auf der Seite nicht mal herausfinden können, wie viele Teilnehmer die Umfrage hatte, geschweige denn welche Fragen überhaupt gestellt wurden. Ich würde also mal ganz vorsichtig Zweifel an der Wissenschaftlichkeit dieser Untersuchung anmelden. 😀

Insbesondere, wenn man dann liest, dass es eine Firma ist, die davon lebt Leuten ihre alten Handys abzukaufen. Ein Schelm, der da niedere Beweggründe vermutet...

Andreas, solche Umfragen gibt's wie Sand am Meer. Die hier von letztem Jahr hatte wohl 5.5k Teilnehmer und kam im grossen und ganzen zu aehnlichen Ergebnissen: https://www.marketwatch.com/story/single-iphone-owners-dont-want-to-date-someone-with-an-android-phone-2017-02-07
