How Many Singles Will Date Someone Who Loves Weed?

When it comes to relationship deal-breakers, people tend to think put different drug or alcohol use on their list. But a new study shows that, at least when it comes to pot, dating someone who smokes weed is not a big deal. Dating site WhatsYourPrice.com surveyed nearly 33,000 respondents and found out it wasn’t a problem— 60 percent of respondents said they would be a-OK with dating someone who smokes marijuana.

It makes me wonder what constitutes “smoking marijuana.” Someone who smokes weed at all or a regular Cheech and/or Chong? Although the number dropped to 55 percent in regards to women, it’s still the majority that are feeling positive to our stoner brothers and sister. And age didn’t really make a difference either— across most age groups there was a 57 or 58 percent acceptance rate. It was only in the 70-plus age bracket that it dropped— and still 43 percent of them were OK with it. But maybe that’s not surprising, they lived through the ’60s.

But it’s not the first time weed and dating have been looked at, and in fact, rather than a deterrent, there seems to be some obvious benefits to dating someone who’s 4/20-friendly. But first, check out our latest episode of Bustle’s Sex and Relationships podcast “I Want It That Way”:

1. The Weed Dating Capital of America Isn’t Where You Think

The most weed-friendly city for singles? Cleveland, Ohio. In the WhatsYourPrice.com survey, 95 percent of respondents said they were most accepting of dating a weed lover, which is huge. Interestingly, as far as states go, Kentucky had 83 percent 4/20 friendliness around the whole state. It is the blue grass state, after all, so our stoner couples might all be there.

2. It’s Great For Orgasms

More. Stronger. It does it all. Weed can have an amazing affect on your sex life. Dr. Mitch Earleywine tells Elite Daily that “that CB1 receptor seems to be involved in improved tactile sensations and general euphoria” and there are some anecdotal reports of marijuana being linked to longer orgasms. And if that isn’t enough of a reason to give it a try. I think that’s a reason to give it a try.

3. It Affects Serious Relationship Issues

It’s not just silly stuff. When it comes to serious relationship issues, like domestic violence, smoking marijuana may help. A study of 643 couples by the University of Buffalo found there was less domestic violence in couples where at least one partner smoke marijuana, and the lowest were both did.

4. You Can Literally Use It For Sex

If you don’t like the idea of smoking up, there are other ways for weed to help your sex life. Cannabis lube exists. It’s a thing. And it’s “designed for female pleasure.” And those are always words I like to hear.

5. Marijuana Users Want Serious Relationships

It’s not just that people are open to dating pot smokers, stoners are looking for love in a real way. According to research released by Match, 44 percent of smokers were looking for a real relationship. Not only that, they were 144 percent more likely than non-daters to have been in a relationship before, so we’re talking some serious daters.

6. . And They’re Picky

Don’t think that all the giggles and loving that go along with weed makes them open to everyone. Weed smokers are actually picker than non-weed smokers. The same Match survey found that they were “they’re less likely to date someone who is unemployed, lives at home with their parents, is a virgin, and is messier than they are.”

7. If You’re Open To Marijuana Use, You’re Open To More Orgasms

That’s right, there not just strong and potentially longer. Match found that those “open to marijuana use” were 109 percent more likely to have multiple orgasms. Whoop! Sound intense? They were also 30 percent more likely to want to make out at the end of the date, and who doesn’t like making out?

When it comes to relationship deal-breakers, people tend to think put different drug or alcohol use on their list. But a new study shows that, at least when it comes to pot, dating someone who smokes weed is not a big deal. Dating site…

20 Things You Need To Know About Dating A Marijuana Enthusiast

It’s 2015, everybody: weed is a thing and people are smoking it. Some do so more than others: enter the weed enthusiast. Whether you smoke or not, you may find yourself attracted to a, for lack of a better word, stoner. Thinking about getting involved with a marijuana enthusiast? Keep the following in mind:

  1. You don’t have to like it, but you have to respect his choice to go green
  2. If you do not like it nor do you respect his choice to smoke, then you probably should not get involved
  3. Do you like weed yourself? Great! Add that to the list of things you and your guy have in common.
  4. Date night can mean a casual smoke session and Chinese food. This sounds great, but make sure it is not the main even of every date.
  5. You should try having sex while high at least once.
  6. Do not let his love for Mary Jane get in the way of his love for you.
  7. If you do feel his is cheating on you with his pot, then you should evaluate the relationship. You should not come in second place to a plant.
  8. You can learn a lot about weed culture from your guy, which is incredibly interesting and revolutionary.
  9. Get to know him sober – you do not want to date an un-authentic person
  10. He can teach you how to roll a proper J, a skill that may not be resume-worthy, but it sure is something that is good to know how to do. You know, just in case you ever need to roll an emergency J.
  11. Always double check with him before you go in his pantry – you do not want to unknowingly eat a pot brownie.
  12. Encourage him to follow through on any high-deas (high ideas) that he has. They can be quite interesting and lucrative.
  13. He probably is very open-minded, which means his tolerance is probably stellar.
  14. Unless you live somewhere where weed has been legalized, keep in mind that he could get into legal trouble if caught with it.
  15. You should ask why your SO started smoking in the first place – this story is usually one that you should know.
  16. His laid back demeanor is adorable…
  17. …Not as precious as his squinty-eyed smile, though.
  18. Unless you are on their level, then do not even try to smoke as much as they do if you decide to smoke with them – their tolerance is unreal at this point.
  19. Go into the relationship knowing how important it is that he smoke, how often he does and what it is that makes him love weed so much – it could simply be that your guy’s love for weed is akin to your love for coffee.
  20. Embrace your stoner guy’s world and lifestyle, but if it is not a place you want to reside forever then be sure that you do not lose yourself in it.
