Does Having An Older Phone Hurt Your Dating Chances?

posted by Scott Stabbert - @ScottDoesRadio -

When it comes to finding your perfect match, it's all about what's inside.. right? In reality, the answer is a tad more complex. Many of us know that physical attractiveness also makes an impact on how he perceive potential dates, but what about something as minor as the type of cell phone they use?

According to a Match.com study. women are 90% more likely than men to judge their date for having an older model of phone. Of course, this doesn't mean 90% of women in the world, just those in the sample selection for the study. What do we consider an "older" model though? Is it less attractive if you don't upgrade every year, or are we dealing with a dislike of the HUGE brick-looking early cell phones? 

What do you think? Personally, I usually wind up on 2-year contracts for my phone and don't really care if a woman I date thinks having last year's model is unattractive. Anyone who judges you on a romantic level for that reason alone is, frankly, a TOTAL and complete knucklehead who doesn't deserve to date anyone til they get their currently-shallow priorities straight.

After all, phones can be replaced. Bad attitudes and shallow standards, however, are much harder to change.
