Here Are the Words New Yorkers Most Use in Their Online Dating Profiles


Last week, to our great surprise, it turned out that New Yorkers are not particularly promiscuous, at least not in terms of what we put on our OkCupid profiles. But, what do we put on our OkCupid profiles, the profiles that we use to entice whichever fair person or peoples we desire to eventually meet us in person and, presumably, date? Sam Yagan, co-founder and CEO of the dating site, has given us the answers. They are intriguing! After the jump, the words that New York City men and women most use in OkCupid dating profiles…

30 Rock
Arrested Development
Always Sunny in Philadelphia

Bob Dylan
born and raised
my iPhone

30 Rock
True Blood

Jay Z
obsessed with
ice cream

Um…OK. A thorough analysis of this leads us to believe that as New Yorkers we are watching way too much TV, and also, that we’re sort of bad at this online dating profile thing. Personality, people! Interests! (Interests other than your favorite shows and your iPhone). At least you can take comfort in the fact that, as we have long suspected, 30 Rock will bring us all together in the end. Plus, wine. Always wine.
