By The Numbers: Dubious Love

$5,719

The average amount gay men are spending on engagement rings this year, according to The Knot. For gay women, it’s slightly less: $5,349. But “transgender couples reported spending $11,145 on engagement rings.” No explanation why. If you got one, I’m very curious.


76 percent

“White Americans [who] are interested in dating Latin Americans,” according to the users of the dating app SweetRing. Meanwhile, “over 87 percent of the Latin Americans said they would date white Americans.” What does this vaguely racist poll prove? SweetRing says it’s a repudiation of Donald Trump’s immigration proposals: “A high wall cannot stop the flame of love.” Right.


44 percent

Americans “using sex toys in the bedroom,” according to German sex-toy company Fun Factory. It may want to relocate to the States, since “only 34 percent of Germans and 23 percent of French individuals admitted to having a secret toy box.” Americans do like their toys.


27 percent

Women who say “they’ll break up with someone who doesn’t brush their teeth twice a day,” according to Delta Dental Plans Association. Men? Only 22 percent. Gross.
