How much can you decode from a man’s dating profile? We got actor Alaya F to suss out bios and tell us how to spot a creep from a keeper, via just a few lines

Surely, the dating-app bio is the literary art form of our time. A whole personality squeezed into a few upbeat lines. Hobbies are played up (I travel! I eat! I spend Sunday recovering from Saturday night!). Anxieties are played down (I’m tall... enough! I’m not too needy! I can take a joke!). Some throw in a bonus: A pop-culture reference, a pun, a possibly stolen playlist. Some, seal their own fates, opening with a joke that’s so off-colour, there’s no need to read on.
