Even in the hearts of Apple fanbois, there's room to love another human being as well as machinery. But it's better if the human receiving that love also has an iPad, say those who are presumably experts in the matter. Working on the basis that Apple fanbois/girls will be happier if they date other lovers of fruitchomp-branded …
I wonder what aspirational cr@p they'll find to sell to this "particular" market next.
I'd rather have a cold cup of tea.
That's been spat in.
By a leper.
Now that's how it's done
Just one quibble: you left out "and costs twice as much".
That's unlikely to happen
Considering how many baristas must be on the site...
That's not very nice at all.
Lepers have feelings, too, don't ya know.
How utterly pathetic
And these are the future leaders of the world? God help us all.
Will no one
think of the polar bears?
Let the inbreeding begin.
I have mostly Mac stuff @ home right now. (no, don't go all "fanboi" on me, I'll easily switch if I find something that suits _me_ better). Being single, I also hang out on dating sites from time to time.
And, yes, there are occasional ladies who put "Mac" under their likes/hobbies. Saw one "Linux", once. No "Windows", ever (sorry, "Cave Dweller").
I have mixed feelings about this: I find it rather pathetic to list an OS as one of your dating criteria. Especially with the "too cool for school" attitude of the Cupertinorati. Snobbish, basically.
On the other hand, it does denote interest in computers, albeit potentially in a most superficial way.
To date, I've only seen this as a curiosity, but there are people who care, apparently.
I thought the whole point of getting Apple stuff was that you didn't have to care about computers. Not that this differentiates it from Windows in reality, but in the marketing that's what they're going for. Apple owners care more about fitting in than about computing.
As per the image on the first page, it's FANBOY. I don't know where the reg's "Fanboi" came from, but I think it must be French.
The origin of boi
I think it is supposed to be some sort of homosexual reference.
'There are more boys than girls, but it's not a problem'
because half of them are botty-botherers.
So, no real income then?
"designers and creatives"?
Is that code for nothing really productive and meaningful being produced?
Meh. I do so hate the new terminology.
Dude, they're baristas!
Damn, you beat me to it...
but here's the video :))
Maybe they tried dating Analdroids but they were too busy rooting their phone
"In my house, we have 1 MacBook Pro, 1 PowerBook, 3 iMacs (of various generations and shapes), 1 iBook, 3 iPod Touches, 2 iPod videos, 1 Apple TV, 4 iPhones, and a G4 Tower
I'm probably missing something."
A life perhaps?
A partridge in a pear tree.
.. a lot of money by now? :)
"and are physically healthy."
"...but I'm less concerned about you being mentally healthy."
Mind you, wouldn't a TRUE Apple fan have installed pancreatic cancer by now? (Oh, look, the 'Post anonymous' checkbox has selected itself. Damn this terrible Windows computer...)
It's almost as if this is just linkbait
From this article:
"And let's face it, the statistics are in the fanboi's favour: iPhone users are famously more generous with their sexual favours. A survey proved it."
This was somewhat disputed by a recent El Reg article entitled "Android users more likely to put out" (http://www.theregister.co.uk/2012/02/02/android_owners/) - perhaps Anna should have compared notes with her colleague who wrote that piece... oh wait, it was Anna.
Compare Apples with Apples
Last time Eve handled the Apples things didn't turn out so good. But that's beside the point.
What I wanted to ask: Does the size of your equipment count on this dating site? I mean, what if you meet and her's is bigger than yours? How will you ever become an AppleInsider if she doesn't respect you?
Are the guys on that interested in girls generally?
Paid vs free
I used to hold the view that:
1. more genuine profiles on paid sites
2. better quality profiles
3. better service
After spending many years online dating (in-between long/medium term relationships), I took a hiatus last year and have recently dipped my toes in. I decided to test my assumptions. I used Dating Direct and Match as my test pay sites and ran the following filters on them:
1. Age: 30-44
2. Location: within 30 miles of Central London
3. Smoking: no
4. Last logged in: 1 month or less
Dating Direct: c133 profiles
Match: c233 profiles
If I ran the same filter last year I would have returned 40 pages of profiles. Now 7.
So what are the paid sites actually offering? First up, they do not indicate who is a subscriber i.e. who can receive and reply. Match used to allow non subscribers to receive emails. Not anymore. Secondly, if you want to use the site on a mobile device, you have to pay significantly extra. Seriously. Thirdly, in my experience, the number of genuine profiles has slipped dramatically.
Ok. Free sites. PoF: used for 6 weeks in 2010 before I went to China. Forums are hilarious, but full of fakes or angry, bitter people. Too much of a cess-pool IMO.
OKCupid: free, good interface, novel/annoying (take your pick) way of matching people (you can use the standard search filters), tonnes of users, and so far, am surprised by what appears to be genuine people. Admittedly, I am quite picky with my filters (Oriental) and who I would contact but seems to be better than the paid sites.
At the moment, I'm scratching my head and wondering why on earth I didn't use OKCupid sooner. That said, it's only been 4 days and the real test is replies that lead to dates.
I've decided to commit to relocating to Asia-Pacific to resolve my dating issues. Dating in London is just a massive PITA whether online / offline.
It's the male version of Jacqueline Kim.
You know, some people just deserve to be single.
Meet an Apple user...
... or why not just have their latest bank balance on display?
Because thats what this is all about, right? Are you wealthy enough to afford Apple?
Either that or you have to wear tweed & ride a fixie.
