In fact, according to our data, women who embody the opposite of subservience have better odds of finding lasting love. That's right — outspoken, liberal women are more likely to find success on OkCupid than those who are not.

By looking through the accounts that left because they had found a loving relationship, they collated the answers that the women gave to the many questions the app asks to build a profile.

Here's a break-down of some of the stats and what they mean:

1. They are smart

'Women on OkCupid who believe a person's education plays a role in attraction are 31% more likely to find love. And being someone who's bothered by typos also increases success rate by 36%'

2. They are sexually expressive and open

'Women who say they'd answer any of their partner's questions concerning their sexuality are 33% more likely to find success on OkCupid. When it comes to pleasure, women who believe masturbation is not a form of infidelity (for people in exclusive relationships) are 39% more likely to find success. Additionally, women who think waiting to have sex until marriage is ridiculous are 31% more likely to meet their partner.'
