Men and internet dating
Research conducted by e Harmony, which looked at over 12,000 online dating profiles, found funny is one of the most alluring words a man can use in his profile, as reported by women.

The study was conducted among Dutch 18–30 year old emerging adults who completed an online survey.
Over half of the sample were current or former Tinder users ( = 163).
