Reports show that Tinder matches can be affected by the football team you support, the pet you pose with and the car you pose next to, so Psychicworld.com were intrigued to find out whether the same can be said about our zodiac signs.
To test this, they created a fake tinder account and changed the zodiac sign in the profile bio after every 300 swipes, to see which star sign people are most and least likely to date.
Here’s what they found.
Pisces – 74.3% (February 19 – March 20)
If you’re a Pisces you have the greatest chance of matching on Tinder, 74.3% of profiles getting a match. Pisces are often considered the most romantic and natural empaths, making them easy to confide in and experts at giving advice – some of the biggest indicators of a great partner.
Take fellow Pisces Justin Bieber for example who posted a poem he wrote for his wife Hailey Bieber.
Cancer – 72% (June 21 – July 22)
Following in second place with 72% of matches are Cancers. Ruled by the moon, Cancers are the most emotional sign and much like Pisces they’re highly empathetic, and romantic which is clearly a plus to those swiping right.

Libra – 69.6% (September 23 – October 22)
In third place are Libras, getting successful swipes from 69.6% of Tinder users. Libras’ successes can be put down to the fact that they are smooth operators, knowing how to knock your socks off with affection, love and gifts.
Leo – 68% (July 23 – August 22)
It’s a good day to be a Leo, with this sign receiving 68% of all potential matches. Not only do they adore receiving love, but they enjoy giving it back in tenfold as they are known for their over-the-top romantic gestures and theatrics.
Taurus – 64.3% (April 20 – May 20)
Psychicworld.com found Taurus signs to be the fifth most liked among singletons (193 matches out of 300). Could it be due to the fact that they are known for being soulful as well as romantic? Or could it be that they are known for falling hard and being great providers?
Scorpio – 60.3% (October 23 – November 21)
Known for loving the chase, Scorpios place in sixth after receiving 60.3% of their matches. Fiercely loyal and passionate, when they find the right person they become enamoured. Their ability to give off a mysterious vibe can often make them irresistible to others.
Gemini – 58.7% (May 21 – June 20)
When Geminis find the one, they can be romantic, which is likely to be why 176 out of a possible 300 swiped right for one. They can be intense which is off-putting to some, however they are charming and often generous in nature.
Capricorn – 57.3% (December 22 – January 19)
With 172 out of 300 matches, Capricorns find themselves sinking into eighth place. heir low ranking could be due to the fact that it takes time to let their guard down and they’re often very career focused, making dating difficult. But if you are the one, you can expect a Capricorn to be committed and loyal.
Aries – 55% (March 21 – April 19)
Aries received the ninth highest number of matches (165 out of 300). When it comes to relationships Aries are passionate, love romantic gestures and enjoy taking initiative in a relationship. However, their fiery temper and impulsiveness can be off-putting to some, which may explain why they received fewer matches.
Virgo – 53.7% (August 23 – September 22)
Virgos tend to be lukewarm and non-traditional when it comes to romance, this could be the reason they only received 161 out of 300 matches. Practical and not big on public displays of affection is an easy way to sum them up. Virgos never miss a detail though and are fiercely loyal to those they love.
Aquarius – 51% (January 20 – February 18)
Only receiving 51% of their matches, Aquarians clearly don’t have the best reputation. Known for their dislike of letting people get close and often being vulnerable, the sign of an Aquarius may be a red flag to others. However, just because they don’t show their feelings in the most traditional way doesn’t mean they aren’t capable of having those feelings.
Sagittarius – 49.3% (November 22 – December 21)
Receiving the least matches are Sagittarius’ (148 out of 300). Seen as the least romantic and hard to tie down, the bad press they receive has clearly damaged their image in the dating world. They can be charming but their appetite for life makes commitment hard for them.
