Recent research suggests that the most attractive hobbies and keywords to include in your dating profile are travel, yoga, surfing, politics, photography, watching/playing sport, cooking and learning music.
Any hobbies which show that you are creative (photography, theatre etc.) and/or into personal growth (travel, yoga etc.) are real hits according to the research.
Men should avoid including “going out with friends” as a hobby (although women can safely include this), while women need to avoid the words “making a difference”, as it puts men off.
