STUDY: Food Leads to More Matches on your Dating Profile

Crafting a strong online dating profile is undeniably an art.  We know not to have too many group photos, lists of demands or bathroom selfies.  But what should we actually be talking about in our bios to make sure those sweet, sweet right-swipes keep rolling in?

Apparently the answer is: food.

Yes, according to a new study, food really is the way to a person’s heart.

Researchers at Zoosk analyzed over 3 million dating profiles and first messages to find out how mentioning different foods and food-related phrases affects online daters’ romantic interactions.  They found that not only mentioning food but also the specific ones you express a love of can have a big impact on your dating success.

The best food to mention? Guacamole.  That could score you a 144 per cent increase in messages.

 

Here are the top foods to mention in your profile and the increase in inbound messages they receive:

  • Guacamole    144%
  • Potatoes    101%
  • Chocolate    100%
  • Salad    97%
  • Sushi    93%
  • Avocado    91%
  • Pasta    75%
  • Cheese    75%
  • Cake    72%
  • Burger    68%
  • Banana    66%
  • Biscuit    64%
  • Ice cream    62%
  • Fries    61%
  • Seafood    61%
  • Sandwich    55%
  • Steak    51%
  • Junk food    50%
  • Pizza    48%
  • Hot dog    41%
  • Sausage    30%
  • Eggplant    25%
  • Taco    24%
  • Ribs    20%
  • Bbq    17%
  • Burrito    17%
  • Pho    6%
  • Noodles    3%

And it’s bad news for those of us who are partial to a slow release carb, with yams (AKA sweet potatoes) giving singletons a decrease of 70 per cent in inbound messages.  Also, best to steer clear of fried chicken, which could result in 15 per cent fewer matches.

It’s clear, however, that we all love food.  And in good news for vegetarians, while there was once a stigma attached to non-meat-eaters that could make them less attractive, this is no longer the case.
