The Most Desirable Singles In 2014

Is it your goal to find love this year? Business Insider gives us the scoop on what it takes to be a desirable single in 2014- some of these stats may be obvious but some may surprise you!

“The beginning of a new year often signals the beginning of lots of things.  Perhaps you created a list of resolutions: get healthier, get out of debt, call  home more.

If giving online dating a try (or perhaps, more effort) was on your list,  dating site Plenty Of Fish just came out with a study revealing the types of  people who were deemed “most desirable” based on volume of messages received by  other members on its site.

This is good news if you’re 25, rich, and Catholic.

The study was based on more than 1.8  million messages sent between heterosexual singles across the U.S. Their sample  involved more than 81,000 heterosexual singles between the ages of 25 and  35.

Researchers  analyzed attributes, demographics, physical traits, and length of profiles to  identify the “most desirable single men and women in 2014.”

We suggest you take the following with a grain of salt. For example, Plenty  Of Fish is a site that tends to attract more Christian users, so the idea that  Christians are the most desirable according to this study makes sense.

So what makes someone desirable?

Millennials Triumph

Young-Couple
For both sexes, those in their mid-20s had more success and received more  messages.

Get a dog!

Women who own a dog received 5% more messages than those who were without a  canine companion.

Be rich

Not surprisingly, the study suggests you’re more desirable if you’re not  broke. Women who make between $50-75k a year and men who make between $75-150k a  year tend to attract more prospective dates.

Lawyers and Drinkers

Men who took the bar and women who frequent the bar are characteristics of  desirable singles, says Plenty Of Fish.

Women who drink receive 4.4% more messages than the average woman on the  site. Female non-drinkers receive almost 24% fewer messages. Also, women who  describe themselves as “thin” (as opposed to athletic or curvy) receive more  messages.

Men who have a doctorate, MD, or law degree receive 33% more messages  compared to the average single guy.”
