The Key To Finding Love On OkCupid: Mention ‘Homeland’ And ‘Archer’

Mention Homeland on your OkCupid or profile, and you, the Carrie Mathisons of the world, are guaranteed to find your Brody, hopefully minus the passion for terrorism. Unless that’s your thing, in which case, keep being you. May your relationship be ever-explosive. Anyway, that’s according to findings from the dating websites with Wired, which “put together 25 tips for writing the perfect profile, selecting the right photo, and really understanding your audience. We analyzed the 1,000 most popular words on both men and women’s profiles, tabulated the most popular movies and TV shows, and crunched stats on what people consider their best feature vs. what features their potential dates are attracted to.”

To the infographics!


This chart shows 380 of the top 1000 most commonly used words in profiles on OkCupid. The color-coding shows the average attractiveness rating of the people using those words.


One of the clearest findings: Higher-brow preferences make you sexier.

That’s too fancy for this guy. I prefer the old fashioned way of finding love.
