Those are the percentages of women excited by the respective words in online dating profiles*. I haven't investigated the scientific validity of this study (which I suspect to be on shaky ground) but I thought it was worth a shot. Personally I find such generic words to be a bit turn-off in themselves. Show, don't tell! Anyway - must update the rest of this with some subtle NLP cues some day.

I'm a music lover and maker seeking a kindred spirit.
I enjoy socialising, going to gigs and clubs, and dreaming of distant shores (South America, Japan and Morocco are high on the list of desirable destinations). One of those Generation X hippies who remembers the Second Summer of Love (but who was a little too young to fully participate) and sets little store in the obvious material prizes of widescreen tinopeners and power steering iPods.
Generally I love creativity of all types - see movie/music preferences below...
On the other hand I enjoy my work and am getting just about mature enough to know the value of money, although I hope to develop a creative sideline. Not really a sports fan at all, although I play Squash and patronise the gym on a regular basis.
I'm pretty interested in politics and current affairs too, but do have a weakness for various comedy shows. Did you love Black Books and Peep Show? Does Chris Morris tickle your funny bone? Do you have a cunning plan? Answers on a postcard to G. Meister, OK Hotel, Cupid Manor.
