The Internet has changed the way we find love. According to one survey, more than one third of married couples met online. These days, practically everyone looking for love has a profile on a dating site or app, which means you’ve never had more potential mates to choose from.

Of course, the downside of having that much choice is that people can be picky. Something as small as the type of glasses you wear might not be a big deal in real life, but online it could very well be a deal-breaker.

Just how picky do people get on dating apps? Advice columnist Beth McColl asked that very question on Twitter. She kicked things off by sharing one of her own petties reasons for swiping left. (Warning: language.)
