• B list. Potential mates on this list have most of the traits you’re looking for in a date but are (or seem to be) missing a few things. They’re OK but not your top choices.

• C list. The matches on this list leave you undecided. Perhaps they’re funny but not so cute. Or they’re good-looking, but wit is lacking. Some qualities are great, and some aren’t, so you’re torn.

• D list. There’s nothing about these profiles that strikes you as attractive, and you can often make this determination rather quickly.
