The story.

We all love food, so it’s no surprise that it’s a great topic of conversation to break the ice after you’ve both swiped right.

But just how much of a difference can food details in your bio make?

The experiment.

Billie Schwab, a 23-year-old Sydney reporter with The Daily Mail, used Tinder for a week — each day she changed her bio to assign herself a different dietary requirement: vegan, vegetarian, paleo, sugar-free, and our favorite, dumpster diver. So glamorous.

So what happened?

Billie sat back to watch the real life comedy show unfold. Some guys used her bio info as a clever ice breaker. Some inevitably got a little inappropriate, but all in all the experiment was a success.

The answer is yes, being paleo does get you more action on Tinder, by about 10 more responses per day.

Because what guy doesn’t love a girl who can throw down some ribs and a good steak?
