While you may not see anything wrong with your old iPhone, it may be the reason you are still single. Turns out, people are judging each other by their tech, especially when it comes to the romance department.
For example, a poll last year found that people with an older smartphone are 56% less likely to get a date than someone with a newer model. What’s more, those with iPhones are 21 times more likely to look down on an Android user, wile Android fans are 15 times more likely to thumb their nose at an iPhone owner.
But it’s not just phones. A recent Match.com poll finds that 61% of singles say they find a person with a virtual assistant like Amazon Echo or Google home to be a turn on.
- And there are plenty of ways your tech could be turning off a potential partner. One poll found that 86% of women were turned off by a man with a broken Smartphone screen. Plus 68% of people say they are turned off by someone without a computer, and 74% look poorly on someone without the Internet. In addition, 78% of people don’t particularly care for folks who steal their neighbor’s Internet.
