Online dating has been booming ever since the internet has become popular, but not everyone gets a successful story on dating websites easily, it’s a hassle for many to get right-swiped. Don’t worry, the secrets have been out. One would not expect the qualities like heavy drinking and staying at home with parents attractive but the recent survey conducted by popular dating website Badoo shows that profiles with such traits are more likely to get right-swiped when it comes to online dating.
5000 people participated in the study, among them, ‘heavy drinking’ and ‘living with parents’ came out as the popular feature they’re looking for in their match. The research also found that people who mention specific information, such as whether they want kids someday, are also popular on the website.
Clare Stott, the relationship psychologist at Badoo, claimed that people are not looking for perfection but honesty from their partner on dating sites.
Interestingly, females who claimed to have or want children in the future are most popular, while as males who stated they do not want children get swiped ‘right’ more. Heavy drinkers are popular among both genders.
