What do North Dakota and Texas have in common? Perhaps a most commonly typed word on dating profiles...
In the world of online dating, there is a seemingly endless virtual line of potential dates standing outside your virtual door. But sifting through an infinite number of matches can feel like a slog when every profile contains the phrases, "easy going," "dog lover" and "I like everything except country, lol."
Mashable asked Match.com to analyze thousands of online dating profiles from the U.S., and to offer insight into the habits and interests of daters in each state. Essentially, they broke down which words are used with relative frequency in certain states, as compared to relative infrequency in the rest of the country. For example, Texas love its "oil," New York loves a stimulating visit to the "museum," and Mississippi loves "lookin."
But though it sometimes seems like every dating profile is the same, there are clear distinctions that separate American daters in each state from one another (Laura Vitto, Mashable).
