Want to increase your matches? This word could boost your luck…
Knowing what to put on your dating profile is always a struggle. What precious, delicate combination of your tastes and interests should you share with the world? How much of yourself do you want to put out there? What the hell do you say to get people to swipe right?!
Well, it looks like we might have the answer – at least in part, anyway.
Because according to the results of a new survey from Zoosk, which took in the views of over 7,000 users, including the word “pilates” in your profile will boost your matches by 160%.
Work out terms generally were also pretty popular for those left- and right-swiping. The survey found that kickboxing, Zumba and yoga were also popular words – basically anything involving flexibility and strength.

65% of online daters said that it was important to them to date someone who was into exercise (or at least does it regularly), so it’s easy to see why they were such popular terms.
But 11% admitted to lying about how much exercise they do on their dating profiles – so every pilates-lover you come across might not be all that they seem.
An earlier survey from Zoosk also found that mentioning guacamole caused an 144% increase in interest, and that veggies and vegans get more replies too (3% and 62% respectively). So if you fancy getting more matches? All you have to do is wax lyrical about enjoying a veggie brunch after your pilates class and the matches will come rolling in.
