If you are planning on taking your A-game to the Summer Olympics or just about anywhere this summer, we have some tools of the hook-up trade to share.

Dating website Badoo unveiled results of its survey, which examined dating on a larger scale by taking into account modern habits and behaviors.

The graphic below compiles its data into a nifty landscape of the dating scene.

(Note: It’s a very good scene if you are between 5’3” and 5’11” in height for you males out there.)

Badoo also uncovered how eager folks are in various parts of the world. For example, we Americans can be fairly impatient, as 36 percent of respondents were fine making the first move. 

According to Badoo, it surveyed information available across its network, which boasts 318 million users.

Badoo Dating Expert Joey Hadfield offered thoughts on the survey: “The results of our first global survey highlight the different reasons people in your area and around the world meet up, and share experiences, interests and friendships...At Badoo, we’re all about our users meeting new people, which is why it’s exciting to learn more about the nuances of dating on a global scale.”

Thankfully, you also have some International pick-up lines provided that we will assume work 100 percent of the time.

Our favorite remains the dichotomy between the United Kingdom and our proud nation. The UK is simple, to the point and polite: “You’ve got a lovely smile." In contrast, we here in America presumably fall over ourselves as we knock over dishes to get to the person we admire in the bar: “OMG I’m speechless.”

In any case, good luck to you brave travelers on your romantic endeavors.
