As you saw in the video above, creating the perfect online dating profile can be tricky freakin' business. Fortunately, dating apps like Plenty of Fish make it a point to share the infinite intel they get just from analyzing user profiles. in this instance, they analyzed over 4 million user profiles and identified the most desirable singles in America, seeing which singles across categories, including city they live in, religion, and even pet ownership, get the most messages from other users. Some notable findings from the results include:
Southern Drawls Win: Georgians are the most desirable singles, with Atlantans taking the U.S. crown for “Most Desirable Date.”
Language of Love: Women who speak Russian receive 35 percent more messages and men who speak Norwegian get 25 percent more messages than the average user, nudging romantic Frenchies out of the running.
Puppy Love: While guys with dogs get more messages (7 percent), women without pets are the winners (3 percent).
Now, we realize that certain things just can't be helped. We don't expect y'all to pick up a southern drawl or magically make $75-100k a year. That said, it's helpful to know what women are looking for in the event you want to, erm, fudge some things. For instance, women find the most desirable intent for using a dating app to get married. Even if you're not looking for that in the short term, it's OK to mention that eventually your plan is to get married.
Additionally, say you've been considering going back to school, but haven't found the proper motivation. Knowing that most women find a Masters Degree the ideal level of higher education is exactly the push every guy needs, right? If nothing else, take these traits and make them your own. At the end of the day, women just want a man whose authentically himself (and financially stable, yeah, that works too).
