Have you already set up your dating app profile but can’t seem to get even a nibble? Do you think it has something to do with your profile picture?

Well you might be lacking a certain vehicle which is making you have lesser chances of attracting a potential partner. So what do you need to boost your dating profile? Apparently, you need a Jeep. According to US dating website Zoosk, having a Jeep present on your profile will increase your chances of receiving messages from potential dates by 243%. And no, that is not a typo. It really was 243%, according to the story.

Why the dramatic increase? Zookst did not go into specifics but it could be the outdoorsy image of the Jeep which makes it more attractive compared to other brands. Combined with the Jeep’s go-anywhere pedigree and you have yourself an adventure vehicle for two. At least this means that having a Wrangler, Gladiator, Cherokee or Renegade showcased on your profile will greatly boost your chances of someone taking interest in you.

Aside from Jeep, having a BMW or Toyota will also help your chances of getting dates by 149% and 73% accordingly. But what if you have a van, or a pickup truck? Not to worry as vans and trucks boost your dating chances by 61% and 41% respectively. Sedans also help by as much as 42%. To be honest we were not expecting vans to be on top of the list. Perhaps Zookst knows something that we don’t.

But is there a type of vehicle to avoid mentioning on your profile? Supposedly, hatchbacks are to be avoided as they will reduce your chances by 15%. Personally, I think I have to disagree because hatchbacks today are some times a bit more appealing and practical than some cars of today.

While this study was conducted in the US, it doesn’t hurt that this could also help those in the Philippines especially since our market is crazy over SUVs, pickups and crossovers.

Although we can only imagine how much boost your dating app profile you'll get if you have a photo with a Jeep Gladiator. Having a pickup that's a Jeep in the background might just do wonders for you.
