Dating is tough. Online dating is tougher. You need to make sure that your dating profile is the best way to get a person's attention.

So, if you are going to do some online dating, you want to make sure that your description is catchy enough to make that possible date like what they see.

A new study from Illicit Encounters,  looked at the adjectives that people use in online dating . . . and the ones that get the best results.  The best one a woman can use in her profile is . . . "sexy."

Men also like women who describe themselves as honest, confident, affectionate, and intelligent.

There's some overlap there with what women are looking for . . . although women don't care if you think you're sexy or not.

The top five adjectives that have the best results for men are honest, intelligent, confident, funny, and romantic.

The study also found the worst words to use.  For women, the worst way to describe yourself is happy . . . and for men, the worst way to describe yourself is CURVY.  Although I kind of love the idea of a guy calling himself curvy.

My profile is WAY off. I used hungry, horny, and easy in mine.
