Match.com Says iPhone And Android Users Don't Mingle (And A Broken Phone Screen Makes You Deeply Unsexy To Women)
We have a lot of things we look for in a potential partner -- religion, politics, stances on perpetuating the species, how excited they are for the next season of Venture Bros, and so on. People use these things to determine compatibility with a person before sharing DNA with them, and rightfully so. After all, how can you spend the rest of your life with someone who has ideologies directly opposed to your own? Like, what if you get married, but then it turns out their phone isn't exactly like yours?
It might sound completely ridiculous (it is), but this issue is a much larger foam noodle in the dating pool than one might think. According to a Match.com survey of 5,500 unhitched Americans, Android users are 15 times more likely to think less of iPhone users, and iPhone users are 21 times more likely to look down their noses at lowly Android users. Windows Phone users were presumably too busy drowning in sex to answer the survey (just kidding, they don't exist).
Oh, and if you're a shmuck who has the audacity to own an older model? Then you're an entire 56 percent less likely to catch a smooch buddy. And gods forbid you're a dude with a cracked screen, because freaking 86 percent of women will judge you more harshly for it. You complete wreck of a human being, you.
Like we said, this is ridiculous. We'd like to believe the human race isn't so incredibly petty, but those are the raw numbers. Our advice? Let's go back to judging people for the important stuff, like whether they load their toilet paper front-facing or not.
