The dating game has changed hugely in the last few years. Online dating is now the second most popular way to meet potential partners.
In fact, a whopping 22% of couples say they met on the web, while 24% met through mutual friends, a recent study revealed.
But while some find it a fun, easy way to meet like-minded people, others struggle with the concept.
If you haven’t had much action on your dating profile it could be because you’re using the wrong words to describe yourself.
A new study revealed that men who use five particular words on their profiles are more likely to get laid.
Data from eHarmony found the five most popular descriptors that are almost guaranteed to land you a date are as follows:
1. Physically fit
If you describe yourself as physically fit, you’re 96% more likely to get interaction than users who don’t.
Women also love a guy who notices the small stuff, so being perceptive means you’re 51% more likely to get a date.
Spontaneous chaps are seen as being more fun and memorable and women are 45% more likely to want to get to know you if you posses this characteristic.
If you’re positive and optimistic, ladies are 39% more likely to pick you out from the crowd.
However, if these five words don’t sum you up at all, don’t be tempted to lie on your profile. Women find dishonestly one of the biggest turn offs and prefer men who are comfortable in their own skin.
In fact, another revealed women don’t care about looks as long as you’re confident in yourself.
The study of 2,500 ladies, also discovered ladies rate kindness and a great sense of humour as the most important characteristics in a man.
Researchers from clothing retailer Bad Rhino were keen to discover what turned women off too.
Perhaps surprisingly, ladies said they’d be repelled if a man offered to pay for the meal during a date.
Other turn offs included men who talk about the weather, suggest watching a documentary or think they might get lucky on a first date.
