Does Being Paleo Get You More Action on Tinder?
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?
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?
