There are plenty of reasons to get yourself a brand new smartphone, but one I did not expect would be to increase the chances of getting a date.
However, according to dating website Match, and a survey of 5,000 Americans across its service, women are 92% more likely than men to judge the person they are meeting for a date based on the age of their smartphone. The model of phone also comes into play.
As if that wasn’t bad enough news for those carrying a bright pink iPhone 5c or bright red-orange Nexus 5, Business Insider has also noted a few other ways your smartphone could set off the wrong signals when you are on a date.
Even having the phone around is a risk, with 58% saying they didn’t want their date to place the phone on the table face up, and 41% said it’s rude when someone takes their phone to the bathroom or outside — perhaps because there’s a chance they’re gossiping to their friends about how terrible the date is going.
Surely, nobody needs to be told that if you are on a date with someone, then perhaps not playing around with your phone would be a good idea, although even if you do have to fire off a quick text message – perhaps to a friend to let them know you are safe, or to check in with a babysitter – then there is still a chance to regain some points by turning off keyboard sounds.
14% of people say they find keyboard clicking irritating, although I find that number oddly low. If it was up to me, I’d ban keyboard sounds completely!
