And 79% of women respondents said they wouldn't even consider dating a guy with a shirtless pic on their profile.
But it seems guys have no problem with women showing skin in their profile pics. In fact, the survey revealed that women wearing bikinis in their pics were 40% more likely to get matches. (Insider)

In fact, more than 50% of those surveyed said they would ghost someone who brought up politics. But this is interesting … While people would rather not talk politics, a whopping 84% of respondents said they would never consider dating someone who had opposing political beliefs. This was particularly true for women – with 67% of women surveyed saying they would not date someone who had different political views. And this may be why … 67% of respondents revealed that they’d had a previous relationship end because of political differences. (Insider)
