Cleo Stiller knows a thing or two about creating the perfect dating profile. As a relationship expert for OkCupid (as well as a TV host and author), she sifted through piles of data on what works and what doesn’t—and came up with seven tips for maximizing matches. Spoiler alert: There’s more to a great profile than good looks.

Upload a Variety of Photos

"A solo shot, a photo from a trip, you enjoying a hobby—vary it up so people get a clearer picture of you."
Caption Your Photos

"When you do, you show up in OkCupid Discovery, where more people will get to notice you and your interests."
Use Spell-Check

“People notice, and over 75 percent of folks say they’re less likely to respond to someone who has spelling mistakes in their profile.”
Update Often

“Share what you’re interested in right now so people aren’t falling in love with who you were two years ago.”
Show Your Support

“Folks are more likely to like you if you mention an organization or nonprofit that you care about.”
Add New Pics

“When you add a new photo on OkCupid, your likes increase by at least two times.”
Upload Pics Taken in the Late Afternoon

“Maybe it’s the nice lighting, but whatever it is, it gets you more likes.”
