The Secrets Of Successful Dating Profiles

January 18, 2013 in Daily Bulletin

Amy Webb used her background in data analysis to figure out which female profiles attract the most attention on a popular dating site…and then used that information to write her profile and find the love of her life. Here are some of the things she found that seemed to attract the best male attention:

  • The most popular female profiles have a relatively short description – about 500 words – and are full of aspirational language about what they would like to do.
  • They also lie about their height, making themselves seem shorter than they actually are.
  • Reaching out to male daters rather than passively waiting for attention was an effective strategy.
  • The most popular profiles were of females with straight – not curly – hair.
