  1. OK, a woman wanting to make a *great* impression should:
    1) Include ๐Ÿ™‚ emoticons and “lmfao”. Score: +231%
    2) Have a full-body photo taken indoors as a selfie. Unless she’s very short she will need to hold the camera over her head and shoot down. +215%
    3) Mention “dinner”, “drinks”, or “lunch” as well as “beautiful” and “baby”. E.g., “:-) I’d love to go out for drinks as long as I can bring my beauitful baby along ๐Ÿ™‚ lmfao!” Score: +466% (woohoo!)
    4) Get a lot of activities into your profile. Using the suggested ones, I came up with: “I plan to write a book about my creative weight-lifting technique using a small piano. I’ll pick you up on my motorcycle!” Score: +140%

    Total score: 331% * 315% * 566% * 240% = +14,000% (Not. A. Typo.)

    Go on, try it.

  2. I don’t know how scientific or representative this is, but the gender differences were interesting.

    The stat about the two kinds of smiley faces makes this suspect- low incidence so inflated statistic?
