Data collected by eHarmony


eHarmony AustraliaARE you a male who is quiet, energetic, and respectful? How about a female who is spiritual, and romantic? Chances are, that’s why you’re not getting a date. Pulling data from more than 12,000 online dating members, eHarmony have narrowed down the words that are most likely to attract attention from potential suitors, as well as those that might be a bit of a turn off.

Researchers looked at the number of communication requests received by users, and drew out the most common words and descriptions in each to find out what they had in common. They then did the reverse, looking at the people with the least number of requests, and the words they had in common.

We won’t keep you in suspense — without further ado, here are the 10 best words to use in an online dating profile, ranked in order:

Male:
Perceptive
Physically fit

Intelligent
Ambitious
Optimistic
Funny
Warm
Creative
Thoughtful


Female:

Ambitious
Thoughtful
Easy-going

Modest
Kind
Sweet
Good listener
Loyal
Caring
Spiritual


Female:

Quiet
Romantic
Good listener
