It is 2017, so chances are that you have downloaded dating apps (like Tinder or Bumble) or visited some kind of dating website (like OKCupid or eHarmony) at some in the hope of meeting someone. Who meets anyone in person anymore, right?!

And if you have a created an online profile, you have probably wanted to make sure that your bio was perfect. So what's the best way to describe yourself? What words should you use? Well, that varies by guys and girls, according to a new study from Illicit Encounters.

For women:
Men were most drawn to women who described themselves with the word "sexy," "honest," "affectionate," "confident," or "intelligent."

For men: 
Women liked it when guys described themselves as "honest," "intelligent," "confident," "funny," or "romantic." 

Honesty scored high among both genders. The conclusion? Telling the truth is sexy. 

What words should you avoid in your bio? Guys should not use the word "curvy" to describe yourself. When was the last time you heard a guy use the word "curvy" to describe himself?
