You probably haven't read Shakespeare since high school. Just admit it. But if you're a single guy and not getting any right swipes or clicks on your dating profile you might want to take up Shakespeare again... or at least mention him.

A new study by found that men who talk about Shakespeare in their profile are more likely to get a date.

...mentioning Shakespeare increases your chances of a female response by 27%!"

Randomly, the city to mention Shakespeare the most (source: WWMT) is Kalamazoo (yes, in Michigan). Who knew Kalamazoo was full of people who considered themselves literary.

However, the top 5 cities of literary singles are:

  1. Fort Collins, CO
  2. Madison, WI
  3. Denver, CO
  4. Ann Arbor, MI
  5. San Francisco, CA

I guess this research makes sense because Shakespeare did have a language for love. Also, tragedy... but we can just forget about that part.
