Mentioning this food on your dating profile will get you more matches


This is very weird…

What you say on your online dating profile can directly affect how likely you are to get a match, and a new study has found that people are more likely to ‘swipe right’ on those who mention food.

The research was conducted by Zoosk, who analysed 3,733,185 dating profiles and 364,609,566 first messages to find out if there was any correlation between food and successful matches. Interestingly, they found that some foods were even more likely to score you a date, with guacamole coming up on top, increasing your inbound messages by 114%.


The Mexican staple dip was followed by potatoes (101%), chocolate (100%), salad (97%) and sushi (91%) with avocado itself coming sixth with 91%. Turns out, online daters are pretty basic, and clean eating is an attractive quality to have, too. On the flip-side, it was bad news for noodles (3%), pho (6%), burritos (17%) and bbq (17%).

A study from found that women are more likely to say yes to dates with men with the words ‘caring’ and ‘family’ in their profiles, while the word ‘love’ was universally the most popular.

In short, if you’re a caring family man who loves guac, you’re in luck.
