Mentioning Food On Your Tinder Profile Might Be The Secret To Getting More Dates
This is pretty good news if you like guacamole.

Online dating service Zoosk recently analyzed over 3.7 million online dating profiles and around 364 million private messages between users to determine how food influences potential relationships to blossom in a survey called The Ultimate Guide to Food and Dating. And, considering the fact that we can all find some common ground in our love for food no matter what other topics we disagree on these days, the results of the survey aren't all that surprising.
For starters, the study found that any mention of food on your profile might be the key to receiving an influx of messages from other users. Guacamole, potatoes, and chocolate were the most successful when it came to increasing those right-swipes, as users claimed that they received over 100% more private messages after mentioning either of these foods in their bios. Name dropping guacamole saw an increase of 144% while potatoes and chocolate garnered an increase of 101% and 100%, respectively.
On that same note, mentioning your general love of food could also get you a little further as well. According to the study, users who used the term "foodie" received 82% more incoming messages while those who used the word "cook" only saw an increase of 26% more messages.
So, yes. Food has its way of bringing people together. But Zoosk also notes that, just because you both like burritos, that doesn't mean that your undying love for the food should be the very first thing you talk about.
