A new study on online dating has shown that people who mention the word ‘vegan’ in their profile get 62 percent more incoming messages than average – leading to UK tabloid The Sun labeling them ‘by far the sexiest option‘.

The report, which was conducted by dating app Zoosk, looked into whether food preferences have an impact on how people interact with each other romantically.

Zoosk also found that there’s no longer a stigma against vegetarians, with the number of replies the meat-free eaters get having risen with three percent since 2015.


Vegetarians have also been found to get up to 52 percent more messages when mentioning their veggie status in their profile.

The researchers, who looked at four million dating profiles, also discovered that people who include the word ‘cook’ in their bios receive 26 percent more messages.

Even the type of food one includes in one’s profile can influence the number of incoming messages – with ‘guacamole’, ‘potatoes’, and ‘chocolate’ being top picks, while ‘fried chicken’ having been found to reduce chances by 15 percent.
