Two dating apps suggest the most attractive professions. Pilots, entrepreneurs, firefighters and doctors are the most attractive professions for men, dating app behaviour suggests.

For women, it is physical therapists, interior designers, entrepreneurs (again!) and PR people that top the list.

(If your profession isn’t here, check out the full list at the bottom of the article.)

At least these are the most ‘right-swiped’ professions on Tinder, according to the company.

Dating sites sometimes release these morsels of information and we have no idea how scientific they are. Alternative claims for the most attractive jobs come from Badoo, another dating company. They surveyed 5,000 heterosexual men and women aged 18 to 30 in the UK. Their list looks a little different — perhaps reflecting the cultural divide between the US and the UK.

For women, the most attractive jobs were:

  •     Hairdresser
  •     Nurse
  •     Lawyer
  •     Entrepreneur
  •     Teacher

For men, the most attractive jobs were:
  •     Chef
  •     Engineer
  •     Entrepreneur
  •     Marketing
  •     Artist

It seems, whether you are a man or a woman, using Tinder or Badoo, it is time to become an entrepreneur.

Oh, by the way, have I told you about the new company I’m starting up…
