Not that we believe the following for a second, but… If you’re keen to improve your chances of scoring a quick physical encounter with a phone-toting member of the opposite sex, Android users are apparently more likely to hop into the sack.
That’s according to a new relationship survey conducted by Match.com, which has found that smartphone users in Canada that favor Google’s Android operating system tend to be more promiscuous than those carrying iPhone or BlackBerry devices.
Match’s ‘Relationship Insider’ Kimberley Moffit reveals that 62 percent of Android owners are willing to knock boots after just one date, while 57 percent of iPhone users and 48 percent of BlackBerry owners would leap so quickly between the sheets.
Meanwhile, a notable 55 percent of Android users would be prepared to pursue the ‘no strings’ one-night stand angle with a newly found partner, and 72 percent have visited online dating services.
“More so than zodiac signs or astrology, smartphones are the new way Canadian singles can decode their dating style and determine if they’ve met their match,” commented Moffitt.
If, perhaps, you’re looking to hook up with a colleague across the office, the survey suggests targeting those equipped with an iPhone as almost 25 percent of respondents said they had dated someone at work within the last five years.
The misty realms of romance and whimsy are evidently reserved for wide-eyed BlackBerry users, with some 67 percent of those polled claiming to have experienced love at first sight.
Other points of wonder thrown up by the survey include: 72 percent of BlackBerry users reach for alcohol on a first date; and that 75 percent of single smartphone users believe email and texting have dramatically improved their love lives.
