Text appeal: Women describing themselves as sweet, ambitious or thoughtful are more likely to attract male attention and receive admiring messages on online dating websites (illustrated), while men who claim they are physically fit or describe themselves as perceptive, passionate or optimistic prove more irresistible to women A study of 12,000 online dating profiles posted on e uk found that women describing themselves as sweet, ambitious or thoughtful are more likely to attract male attention and receive admiring messages.

Instead, go with something unique that either creates intrigue or makes someone laugh.
