Zoosk is a UK-based dating app that uses behavioural-based matchmaking to help users find their perfect partner.
Their team analyzed 3,733,185 dating profiles and 364,609,566 first messages to figure out if mentioning different foods and food-related phrases would affect their users’ romantic interactions.
Turns out 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. The avo-based dip could score you a 144% 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%
Sadly it’s bad news for those of us who are partial to a slow-release carb, with sweet potatoes giving singletons a decrease of 70 percent in inbound messages.
