Compatibility by Cocktail

We recently teamed up with Shannon at PlentyOfFish to help readers see if they are compatible with their dates through the drinks they choose! Shannon has been working at Plenty of Fish since 2010, she is on their Public Relations team as well as a regular blogger.  After reading this blog and on a date, you’ll be able to tell if you’re compatible through your drink order. Read on to find out if you are with the right drinking partner: 

Here at PlentyOfFish, we rely on our state of the art matching algorithm to connect single people, but that doesn’t mean we can’t admit that successfully determining compatibility can come from some unexpected places. So despite being entirely unscientific, there may be a thing or two we can learn about each other from the drinks we order. So who exactly is craft beer’s soulmate in drink form? Read on:

Your drink of choice: Old Fashioned

Matched with: Gin Martini

Your drink exudes urban sophistication, and although you’re not necessarily the traditional type, you can appreciate the classics. These are two very image-conscious choices, but there is something to be said for simple elegance, and nothing compliments a confident drink quite like a gin martini. These drinks don’t beat around the bush. They’re forward, well-adjusted, and strong. Keep an eye on how many you’re ordering though!

Your drink of choice: Red Wine

Matched with: Red Wine

Did you know that 27 percent of single men chose wine as the most attractive drink for their date to order in a survey conducted by PlentyOfFish? All stats aside, lets be honest: there is nothing that better compliments an aromatic, full-bodied glass of red wine than the company of another red wine drinker! You’re sophisticated, passionate, and you know what you like. You’re just not going to settle for someone who’s all about prepackaged vodka coolers (not that there’s anything wrong with that), so pair up with someone who appreciates the finer things in life. If you ever run out of things to talk about, start going back and forth about subtle undertones you can detect in your favorite Malbec – you’ll be at it for hours.

Your drink of choice: Tequila

Matched with: Vodka Redbull

It’s no secret you like to party – so you need someone who’s going to keep up with you. You get bored easily and need someone who’s going to hold your attention and stay up to mirror your high energy. You have the tendency to get a little wild, so your match is someone who knows when to turn down…eventually.

Your drink of choice: Beer

Matched with: Caesar/Bloody Mary’s/Basically Anything

You know how to kick back and relax – good on you! Nothing follows up a cold beer like a mellow Caesar/Bloody Mary, so this a match made in brunching heaven. Despite having preference, beer drinkers are a casual bunch, so there’s nothing set in stone and you basically get along well with everybody! In the same PlentyOfFish survey I mentioned earlier, it was discovered that beer is the alcohol most commonly consumed by singles, as 38 percent drink it the most often. They survey also named craft beer the most attractive drink a man can order according to women, so you can’t really go wrong!

Your drink of choice: Anything On The Rocks

Matched with: Vodka Soda

Ordering anything on the rocks is very self-assured, but hints that you may have had a long day. Complementing your urge to take the edge off is a simple vodka soda. Straightforward and unapologetic, you’re definitely drink soulmates.
