WIRED released some interesting infographics where data crunchers studied OkCupid dating profiles to find what words led to high attractiveness ratings—and the results are pretty funny… if not slightly eye-roll-inducing.
• Karaoke is decidedly not sexy; Surfing is extremely attractive (in the ocean, as opposed to online).
• Mentioning God doesn’t get hopeful ladies very far on the site… but neither does talking about tattoos.
• “Electronics” on the other hand? It’s apparently the secret password to scoring a date.
• Our favorite nugget of wisdom: Men who use the word “whom” in their OkCupid profile get 31% more contacts from the opposite sex. Good grammar? Hubba-hubba!
