‘May the Fourth’ may be your lucky day
The Force is with you — in finding love.
People who put Star Wars on their profiles are 61% more likely to start a relationship than people who don’t put the movie down as an interest, according to dating site PlentyOfFish, which analyzed 13 million profiles. PlentyOfFish has over 90 million users worldwide.Users in some cities may be particularly likely to get a date by listing Star Wars, according to Mashable, which reported on the data. Here are the top 10 cities where Star Wars fans on the site are most likely to live:
- Los Angeles
- San Antonio
- San Diego
- Las Vegas
- Colorado Springs
A quick scan of PlentyofFish shows pages upon pages of listings from users — from all over the country and with varied other interests — who love Star Wars.
It makes sense, thanks to the franchise’s immense popularity among people young and old. “This is the king of all franchises,” Jeff Bock, a box office analyst with Exhibitor Relations, told Variety in December after “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” had the second-largest December opening in history. “No other franchise is even close.”
Of course, this analysis was just done among PlentyOfFish users, and putting Star Wars on your profile may be a turnoff to some. Plus, there are other dating sites where fanboys and fangirls may be even more likely to find a true fan, as Zoosk notes in this piece.
