Use Dating Sites? Stick “Radiohead” in Your Profile for Better Results

If you’re looking for love (or…whatever) using online dating sites, you’ll know that in order to have any kind of success, you need to pay careful attention to your profile.  Wired analyzed specific keywords for male and female profiles on and OkCupid.  They claim that the best words anyone can use are:

  • Surf/Surfing
  • The Ocean
  • Skiing
  • Yoga
  • NYC
  • London

Okay, fine.  But drilling a little deeper, we find that other good words are “live music,” “Pulp Fiction” and “Radiohead.”  In fact, there is no better band to mention in your profile than Radiohead.  Just sayin’.
