"A always comes first. People are drawn to those at the top of any listing," claims professor Khalid Khan, further adding "applied to online dating this means that those at the top of the listing get first bite of the attention from potential love-interests and so have a higher chance of being matched." Still not convinced? Khan also mentioned that "the findings are not limited to dating. Amazon and Apple, successful companies, begin with A."
