We don’t know what a vacation will actually be like, so we predict it in rosy vignettes, much how we predict a date with someone whom we’ve only seen in a few pictures.Dating coach Kevin Murray has helped online daters converse for years, first at e Flirt, a company that managed online profiles, and now at Icebrkr, a startup he founded that sends users matches and helps them home in on the best topics of conversation.
According to a 2017 study by Hinge, travel photos receive 30 percent more likes than the average photo.
Research from Match Group, which owns Tinder, found that 62 percent of men and 74 percent of women want a partner who shares their travel interests.
No one imagines their day-to-day self wandering the markets of Morocco or hiking Yosemite — we imagine the self we most want the world to see.
Bobby explains that when people are doing things like “trekking around Iceland,” that’s when they feel the most sexy, interesting, and fun.
Travel photos may be predictable dating profile fodder, but ultimately, everyone wants that euphoric couples vacation.
Many people choose partners in the direction of their own aspirational growth, Bobby says.
“If someone had a or e Harmony profile, we would run everything,” Murray says.
“Part of that process was writing messages and also writing their profile.
Murray says that when creating Icebrkr, travel was the No. “It’s easy, low-hanging fruit to start a conversation with,” he says.
