In our Smile at First Sight survey, we teamed up with Coffee Meets Bagel (CMB) to uncover interesting insights about what singles look for in a partner.
As we trickle back to normalcy, the dating scene gets a little more exciting and all you singles out there may be dying to know what your future partner is looking for right?
Although this concludes the third year of living with COVID, the pandemic has never stopped us from making new connections. 81% of respondents expressed strongly that they would not skip a date or stop meeting new people due to the fear of COVID.
The secret to impressing your date? Just smile!
We may think that physical attributes are the only factors that matter in getting matches on a dating app. Yet the top three qualities singles seek in a partner include honesty, a nice smile and intelligence. In fact, 60% of singles seek a nice smile from a partner. So if you thought a six-pack was really important, think again.
Respondents ranked a nice smile the highest when asked about their date’s most attractive physical attributes. More than 80% of respondents felt that a ‘nice smile’ is a trait that matters to them. Straight and white teeth were also important factors in determining attractiveness. Singles were also turned off by dates who had bad breath, discoloured teeth and those who didn’t smile. The moral of the story? Always floss, brush and rinse your mouth before a date. Last but not least, remember to smile!
Secret to taking a great dating profile picture!
It’s all about a nice, confident smile! 82% of singles voted a confident smile as the type of photo they found irresistible on dating apps. It’s even better to take a nice candid shot with your furry friends to boost your chances of getting matched with someone special! The survey also found that only 7% would swipe right to a gym selfie and that 96% voted against party shots. So it’s time to ditch the gym selfie and your wildest party photos and keep it natural with a friendly confident smile.
