Drink More? Date More!

PUBLISHED ON April 01, 2015 | STAFF


Do you like to throw a few back? If you do drink (in moderation, of course) then there's some good news for you! You are more likely to live longer than those who abstain from alcohol.

And there's another thing to drink to. An online dating study from AYI.com shows that drinkers get more dates than non-drinkers. There are several factors as to why drinkers have "better health, and live longer lives," says SUNY professor David Hanson.


Since drinking helps people relax, it reduces emotional tension. This in return, allows drinkers to create more opportunity for friendships, and popularity making it easier for them to form new relationships. Here's the breakdown of these factor...Cheers!

More Attractive

gifrific.com Drinkers get more responses online. Women that drink often and socially are contacted more than those who abstain. And for men, social drinkers were the most contacted, closely followed by those who drank "often" and "rarely."

Bottom line...people who claim to drink more frequently are deemed as more attractive to the opposite sex.

More Friends

imgur.com An online study shows, singles over 30, that drink often have 56 more Facebook friends on average and singles under 30 have 80 more Facebook friends on average.

The reason why this was observed is because, "Heavy drinkers are more extroverted and sociable than lighter drinkers," claims Brown professor Kate B. Carey, Ph.D.

Income And Ages

tumblr.com Singles in their early thirties are more likely to claim themselves as "social drinkers". However, over 50% of singles of all ages brackets are identify as being social drinkers.

Research also reveals that social drinking is less common among lower-income brackets. Thus, those who make less money, are more likely to drink less. Much like exercise, drinking is an expensive hobby.

Top Beer For Men (in this order): Heineken, Bud Light, Budweiser, Dos Equis, and Coors Light.

Top Liquors/Spirits For Men (in this order): Jack Daniels Tennessee Whiskey and Bacardi Rum.

And what hard liquor do women like? VODKA! (My personal fave) The top notable brand was Skol. (I shudder from flashbacks of the good ole college days)
