Nourish Nurture Signal: want to find true love? Call out guacamole in your dating profile ????

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:

  1. Guacamole    144%
  2. Potatoes    101%
  3. Chocolate    100%
  4. Salad    97%
  5. Sushi    93%
  6. Avocado    91%
  7. 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.
