The TV Shows And Phrases Guys Should Mention If They Want To Attract The Ladies

OKCupid loves crunching the data on its daters. This week, they took a look at the most common words and phrases in the profiles of New York singletons. The results are fascinating. For both genders, not only is the most common phrase a TV show, it’s the same TV show—”30 Rock.” From there, the lists diverge, but there are an awful lot of TV shows on both gender’s lists. For men, the most used words are: “30 Rock,” “Arrested Development,” “Always Sunny in Philadelphia,” Bob Dylan, born and raised, and my iPhone. For women, the list is: “30 Rock,” “True Blood,” Jay-Z, obsessed with, ice cream, and wine.

Presumably, people mention these TV shows because (a) they like them and (b) they think liking them will appeal to potential suitors. And so we’d like to give the straight guys out there some help. After the jump, the shows guys should name check, in addition to “30 Rock” and “Arrested Development,” if they want to pique a woman’s interest. Plus some more random words that will help, too.

  • “True Blood”
  • “Mad Men”
  • “Jem and the Holograms”
  • “The Office UK”
  • “Weeds”

  • “Breaking Bad”
  • “The Wire”
  • “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”
  • “Tough Love”
  • “Parks and Recreation”
  • “Clarissa Explains It All”
  • “Twin Peaks”

And some female-attention grabbing words:

  • looking for commitment
  • very punctual
  • Ryan Gosling could be my twin
  • chocolate mousse
  • my parents’ island in the Seychelles
  • cockapoo puppy
  • give lots of compliments

You are welcome.
