Studies Show – Romantic Relationships | The Daily Show


Studies– they tell us
what to eat, how to exercise and which of our favorite things
are giving us cancer. All of them. But with new studies
coming out every day, sometimes it’s hard to keep up. Luckily, though,
we’ve got Dulcé Sloan in our brand-new segment
Studies Show. -♪ ♪
-(cheering, applause) Hi, friends. This week’s studies
are all about relationships, specifically
romantic relationships. Everybody wants one,
especially me. I thought I was in one
until he told me that his gifts were just Amazon packages
because he’s my “mailman.” Hmm. All right. I can tell when somebody’s
playing hard to get. And thanks to new studies, we’re
learning all sorts of things about relationships,
like this one, which shows that the only thing gold diggers
are mining for is french fries. According to a new study, many
women are choosing free meals over relationships. The study in the journal Social Psychological
and Personality Science says up to a third of women
have engaged in a foodie call. It’s when a person
sets up a date with somebody they have
no romantic interest in, all for a free meal. -(laughter)
-That’s right. Studies show
a third of all dates are just people trying
to eat for free. (laughter) So, fellas, sometimes
that eggplant emoji just means “I’m in the mood
to eat eggplant.” (laughter, shouts) (applause, whooping) (mutters) There’s only one emoji
that always means sex, and it’s the hockey net– ’cause you’re about to score,
and it’s nice and wide. (laughter) And if you’re trying to figure
out what’s going to happen to your relationship
after the first date, we got studies for that, too. NEWSMAN: Have you ever witnessed
a couple making out in public and thought, “Get a room!” A surprising new study found
that the amount of affection between you and your partner
may determine whether or not
a marriage will last. And we’re talking about
public displays of affection. They found that couples
who are overly affectionate from the start
of their relationship may be more likely to divorce. (laughter) So… PDA couples are
more likely to break up. Ha! That’s what you get! (laughter, whooping, applause) Always getting to third base in the stationery aisle
of Walgreens. -(laughter)
-Get your mouths off each other. I’m trying to pick
a birthday card for my grandma. I don’t need y’all licking
all the envelopes. And why do people have
to make out in public like they haven’t seen
each other in a decade? He just got back from
the bathroom, not Afghanistan. (laughter) Although, if you did
just come back from Afghanistan, thank you for your service. -Get it wet.
-(laughter) But if you want to keep
your relationship healthy, this last study shows
a little jealousy can go a long way. Smart device snooping. It’s something more people do
than will admit. But can secretly scanning
your partner’s phone actually help your relationship? A new study says maybe. According to a study from the
University of British Columbia and the University of Lisbon,
about 25% of the participants said that their relationship
got stronger after they or their significant other
were caught snooping. The study concluded
this strengthened bond came from a heightened desire
to solve trust issues. Ha-ha-ha-ha! (laughter) Uh-huh. Yeah. You hear that, Darryl? (laughter) I wasn’t snooping– I was
strengthening the relationship. (cheering, applause) Okay? You’re gonna complain that
I Face ID you in your sleep? Well, if you
don’t want that to happen, stop leaving your face open. (laughter) Now, if you’ll excuse me,
I have ordered several packages -to my apartment…
-(laughter) and I have to have dinner ready
for when my man drops them off. Dulcé Sloan, everybody!

  1. Virginia O'Flaherty says:

    who agrees that PDA is simple exhibitionism.


    Women have always did that free movie, free food, free gift,free party, free shopping, free vacations, etc. After my divorce of 21 years,I had control of my domain just like women. Iโ€™m financially successful and take care of my health and looks. I tell all women nothing is free unless I tell them, otherwise Iโ€™m just putting the โ€œPโ€ on layaway and when I what to take it off layaway. It better be there or you will be replaced. That has worked well for me for 18 years . ME TOO!

  3. shlobs422 says:

    1/3 of dates are just for a free meal. Sounds about right. The other 2/3 are strangers exchanging bodily fluids and possibly the herps.

  4. Captain Hindsight says:

    In the next video of this segment you should be sure to add who was responsible for the study.
    Sometimes a study results can be skewed because of who did it.

  5. I might need security says:

    Trevor, I love your eggplant. Ps. Your wife๐Ÿ˜˜ dulce u look absolutely beautiful, love your hair

  6. narek says:

    If you feel the need to spy on your partner, there's a 25% chance that your relationship will improve and a 100% chance that you're a toxic human being

  7. Flame Beats says:

    3:25 clearly they misinterpreted the data. If 25% thought it strengthened their relationship, the other 75% thought it made it worse.

  8. Daniel Sanchez says:

    Duce is low? Soooooo shitty

  9. Onion Sandwich says:

    Is it me, or does it feel like all those studies are absolute horseshit.

  10. TJ Kim says:

    And people still wonder why I want to be an asshole and not pay for the meal.


    Dulcรฉ, your package is arriving early today baby!

  12. Donald T says:

    She is funny

  13. Philosophy Gamers says:

    I had a girlfriend who searched through my phone once. Threw it against the wall and broke it. Trust issues avoided.

  14. Marit Komora says:

    Studies show, that people are more likely to believe you, if you start a sentence with the words 'studies show'

  15. D C says:

    "Ha! PDA couples are more likely to break up. That's what you GET!" XD

  16. Vegas Mitchell says:

    This is Why i DON'T Pay 4 the 1st 3 Meetings!! Tell Young Guys this Often, INVEST Half that "Dating" $$ You BLOW iN Your 20's!!

    Sad โ˜น๏ธ can't us women buy our own meal

  22. Mad Repore says:

    On the real. Dulce Sloan can get it! ๐Ÿ”ฅ

  23. bestdoceva says:

    where did they get the studies from??

  24. M K says:

    Foodie call. Omg

  25. Nathanyel says:

    Most likely explanations: couples that are unsure about their partners try to convince themselves via public displays of affection, but in the end it doesn't help, and jealous people might feel more secure about their partner, can convince themselves (for a while) that the jealousy is unwarranted, if they can snoop around their phone. Still a red flag, though.

  26. Prophis says:

    Sheโ€™s hilarious

  27. Gus Vasquez says:

    Dulce Sloan is my MOOD!!!

  28. abdulaziz yalahow says:

    Hahahaha Snooping on my phone ๐Ÿ“ฒ hmmm ๐Ÿค” I donโ€™t believe that period interesting lol ๐Ÿ˜‚

  29. World in RooView says:

    We need to fund more studies, so that we can have Dulcรฉ Sloan do more segments!

  30. Ross Hurst says:

    The new batch of correspondents is nowhere near as good as the ones Jon Stewart had. This lady was kinda funny tho. The hockey net line and stop leaving your face open got a chuckle from me.

  31. KAIJU MECHA says:

    My gold digger friend was always looking for free meals, some suckers like to give everything for nothing though:)

  32. swampy says:

    A recent study shows that I shouldn't worry about these things since I am forever alone.

  33. Victor Williams says:

    Greedy bitches! … this is nothing new. Females have been taking advantage of men for food since the beginning of time. It's a clear double standard! Men should go out with women just for food too.

  34. Anime Spectra says:

    Are we gonna ignore that the study said "maybe"

  35. SAG says:

    Her comedic timing is great

  36. theoriginalanimeker says:

    "laughter, whooping, applause"

  37. YaoLi Jiang says:

    thank goodness those cringe pda couples won't last.

  38. T J says:

    How pathetic is that? Do some women really go through all the trouble of getting all dolled up and meeting a stranger somewhere, just to get a free meal? That is beyond sad.

  39. Ogas on top says:

    thats y i dont take no woman out for meal until dating except light snacks lolol

  40. Gisley Alves says:

    In Brazil, we prefer rice with beans and salad; lay in the bed; watch a good movie; take a good a nice shower over SOME kinds of relationships…Greetings from BRAZIL american folks.๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡ท

  41. LaggardInLove says:

  42. Christine Wood says:

    I literally went on an app to find a date one night because I didnโ€™t have anything to eat. But he ended up being really cool and I went out with again 3 times, just because I wanted too. Moral of the story: who cares why she said yes, just go, relax, and have a great time.

  43. Venus Carmen says:

    โ€œI thought i was in a relationship until he told me all the amazon packages are because he is my mail manโ€! hahahaha ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿพโ€โ™€๏ธ who is this girl she is hilarious!

  53. Elia Msia says:

  54. RodeoSwappingBoogie says:

  55. Anth Sain says:

  57. chrisserrific says:

    That's just called being broke. I'm not even being funny. I've gone on some shit dates with some bootleg Ted Bundy motherfuckers when I was doing some bullshit internship, or netting $100 a month after rent and utilities.

  58. missee doodle says:

    Ms. Sloan? In the words of my native language: "Eres bien Dulce, Dulcรฉ!" Studies show that "Yes ma'am, you are Brown Sugar Sweet — and Sassy!" ๐Ÿ˜ƒ. Love it! Love you, girlfriend! [And Trevor's ok in a pinch. รœ.]
