Most people now live on the internet, work on the internet and date on the internet. Internet romance and dating apps have come to be an integral part of our social lives.
It is no news that we are officially in the internet age. Many people currently spend more time on the internet than anywhere else. In fact, our social lives mostly revolve around the internet.
You’ll be amazed at the revelation of the number of people flipping through dating apps on an hourly basis.
Flipping through people’s profile on dating apps is an act we are all guilty of. And we also, on the other hand, spend a lot of time trying to update our profiles on dating apps to look more attractive to other users too.
Dating app Badoo has dug into its profiles and found the key profile words used by its most popular users.
They found some of the insider tips on how to enhance your dating profile, to be more eye-catching for potential dates.
The topmost searched word for men is “6-foot” while for women it’s “love”.
Another major attractor is humor, with 87 percent of users swiping right on a profile that is funny.
The common words used across both male and female profiles were found to be “gym” and “music”.
“A good bio needs to be positive and give a flavor of what you are about, so it is no surprise that our most popular users are doing just that. explains Badoo’s in-house dating-expert, Claire Stott.
“When creating a profile, it can feel overwhelming at first deciding what content to include. But do not fear – our data tells us that a popular bio is one that is short and snappy, around only 20 words!”
Claire further explains that writing about your specific preferences such as your favorite film actor or Pasta dish makes you stand out and appear more attractive.
“These sorts of things will help you to stand out and can often add a touch of humor. Even if your preferences turn off a few people, those that do appreciate them will probably be better matches in the long run. Plus, you’re making it easier for them to initiate the conversation with something meaningful.
“It is also a good idea to include what you are looking for and any potential deal breakers – such as height – to prevent awkwardness later on. Though unsurprisingly we find that mentioning height is more common in men, who are at least 6ft!”
