Women, on the other hand, although still in the majority, are 63 percent more likely to reach out and get a conversation started with someone who has the fact that they can speak multiple languages in their profile.
According to Plenty Of Fish's data scientist, Michael Mc Dermott, singles who have a second language listed on their profile are more open and forthcoming about themselves than those who only speak one language.
"These traits are vital to creating a connection, and eventually forming positive long lasting relationships," Mc Dermott said in the press release.

Rounding out the top three, in who gets messaged most, are men who speak Swedish and Dutch, respectively.
In addition to the fact that these people can speak more than one language, according to Mc Dermott, they also tend to be "more meticulous about crafting an accurate and enticing picture of themselves." In other words, the more details, the better your chances."Past research tells us that the time and effort someone spends on their profile is a strong indicator of their chance of forming a successful relationship on our site," says Mc Dermott.
