Can't stop thinking about burrito and looking for love at the same time? You're in luck. Actually, there is now an app for that.

Anyone who has tried online dating could swear how quirky the thing could be. Sure, one could input all the things one prefers like height, weight, location and even political inclination but most of the times, one won't get what one had imagined the perfect lover to be.

So why not connect with someone on a gut level instead? Or to be more specific, why not choose a dating partner basing on one's burrito preferences? In this way, one is guaranteed to have a date that one is most compatible with, burrito-wise that is.

That is probably what Zoosk Software engineers thought when they made the Burrit-OH! app. It is basically a dating app that matches romance seekers purely based on their burrito preferences. And mind you, it is pretty complicated. With thirty-two factors to consider, one couldn't get a partner more tailor-fit than what the app has to offer.

And in case one is doubtful in case the app uses dubious mathematical processes in searching for true love, Burrit-OH!'s engineers assure that the app uses cool math to aid in the quest for true love. According to the Zoosk website, the app utilizes formulas, Pythagorean theorem, and even geometrical concepts like tanget, sine and cosine to snag that perfect match.

"Today's daters are more sophisticated than their predecessors," Zoosk Software engineer Roger Flanagan explained to Elite Daily. "They're tired of matching on trivial things and are looking for a more meaningful way to connect.We've found that way, and that way is burritos."

Nicely said Mr. Flanagan. After all, what could be more basic than a gut-level feel and a complete agreement on burrito preferences? They did say that the best way to a man's heart is through his stomach.

Planning to download now? Well, your chance has passed. The app was actually an April Fools prank made by Zoosk and was only available for download until April 8. But don't worry; one can still use Zoosk's dating expertise to get that perfect one.
