Mentioning These Foods On Tinder Could Double Your Chances, Study Says

If you're looking to boost your Tinder profile game, food may be the answer you've been searching for. Guacamole especially may play a factor in helping get more people to slide into your inbox.


A new study from dating website Zoosk unveiled a whole host of ways to utilize food to get more people willing to hit you up on the popular casual dating app. Most notably, mentioning guac in your Tinder profile will increase the number of messages you get by an astounding 144%, according to the study. Potatoes and/or chocolate will also roughly double your incoming requests, apparently.

There are a plethora of other methods to increase your prospects on Tinder as well. Mentioning that you're a "foodie" in your profile will up your messages by over 80 percent, while mentioning eggplants (well, at least the emoji, I would guess) increases the response rate by 10 percent.

Surprisingly, being a vegan dramatically helps your chances out as well, as you'll get 62 percent more incoming messages than average.


When it comes to things people don't like to see on Tinder profiles, yams and fried chicken are two of the ones that definitely drop your viability. Yams decrease your message count by 70 percent, while fried chicken does so by 15 percent.

To add insult to injury, mentioning fried chicken, burritos, or pizza in your chats will also drop response rates by roughly six or seven percent. Guess people aren't as into my favorite foods as they used to be.

Of course, like all Tinder moves, this data is only proven to help get your foot in the door.

What happens next is entirely up to you, #foodbeast.
