We have some good news for Valentine’s Day! In a new study by the dating website EliteSingles, dating profiles containing the words “vegan,” “vegetarian,” or “veggie” were 74 percent more likely to get a message than the average profile!

EliteSingles looked at anonymous data from a random selection of its registered members, searching the profiles of 237,000 users in the United Kingdom and the United States for the words “vegan,” “vegetarian,” and “veggie.” Comparing the number of messages these profiles received with the number received by members overall, the EliteSingles research team discovered a trend—profiles using one or more of these three words got between 50 and 108 percent more incoming messages!

These results just go to show that there is nothing more attractive than kindness and compassion.
