How to find love online: Pose with a dog in a park, list yoga among your hobbies and don't post bathroom selfies or talk about your cat!

Looking for love online can be a digital minefield but if you want someone to swipe right on Tinder, all you need to do is pose with a dog in a park and say you do yoga, according to a new survey.

The research, which looked at how you can impress online, revealed that steering clear of using the phrase 'my cats' or taking bathroom selfies is important when landing a date.

And listen up lovelorn men! The study found that having someone take a picture of you on a sunny day in a park with trees in the background and a dog by your side gives the impression you are friendly and caring, but rugged at the same time.

However, when it comes to pets, it's a fine line. Mentioning cats and dogs is deemed OK, but use the phrase 'my cats' or 'my dog' and the appeal can be drastically diminished so pets are a tricky business.

For women, a natural look, without pouting, in an outdoor setting gets the most attention.

Selfies are becoming less acceptable for both men and women with bathroom selfies being a particular turn off (take note, Kim Kardashian).

The words used by both sexes are also crucial in attracting the right people to your profile.

For male users, words such as 'spontaneous', 'ambitious', 'funny' and 'adventurous' got the most attention, while popular phrases for females included 'athletic', 'partner', 'honest' and 'adventurous'.

Researchers found that the most popular profiles all mentioned an energetic hobby including running (76 per cent), going to the gym, (68 per cent) and yoga (47per cent).

Being open to new ideas and seeing new places also featured highly on the best profiles.

A spokesperson for Skout, who commissioned the survey, said: 'Long gone are the days of only meeting people at your local pub or coffee shop.

'We live in an age where online socialising can be a really meaningful and effective way to forge new personal bonds. The majority of people in our markets are now looking to the internet as a way of meeting new, exciting people.'
