If you’ve been having trouble landing a date lately, this just might be your lucky day.

According to a study done by the online dating service Zoosk, specific foods will get you more attention when looking for your perfect match.

The study says mentioning guacamole in your Tinder profile can increase your inbox messages by 144 percent (!) while potatoes and chocolate are also foods that apparently get people excited enough to shoot you a note.

The study found that simply saying you’re a “foodie” or “cook” will increase your chances of landing a date by 80 percent and 26 percent, respectively, and saying you’re a vegan is also a plus (increasing your messages by 62 percent). The results even showed simply putting the eggplant emoji in your profile will increase the rate of interaction by 10 percent.

Of course, there are some specific foods you should not mention if you are looking for love: yams, fried chicken, burritos and pizza (apparently people don’t have good taste on dating apps). Yams decrease your inbox by 70 percent and beloved fried chicken will knock you down 15 percent while the others drop response rates by 6 to 7 percent.

The study also revealed female versus male responses to food on dating apps. If you’re someone looking for a date with a woman, class it up a bit: 59 percent of women have a “negative perception” of their match when they suggest a fast-food restaurant for date night (but we definitely don’t judge).
