These are the jobs that increase your chances of hooking up on Tinder
Tinder has completely changed the way that we date each other. While it used to be that you meet someone in a bar or on a night out, now it is easier than ever to get chatting to someone online and find out if they're the right one for you.
If you've been single over the last few years, the likelihood is that you've spent some time on Tinder. Whether it was "just for a bit of banter" or you were genuinely trying to find the love of your life, Tinder has now become the world's go-to app for those in need of a little bit of a love.
So, what is the recipe for Tinder success? It's the question that has bugged a lot of us for a few years now, and thankfully we have an answer. Sometimes Tinder can seem like a complete guessing game; you will spend hours on a Sunday night, blindly swiping right without getting a match. Then, one random Thursday morning, every person you swipe on during your commute to work is a match, making you question everything you know about dating.
But it turns out there are certain elements to your Tinder bio that can determine the amount of success you achieve on the app. Tinder released a blog post that revealed that adding your job and education information is beneficial to your profile, and will help you get matches. However, as we all know too well, not all jobs are equal, and unsurprisingly there are certain jobs that are more appealing than others.
Based on data that was gathered between November 2015 and January 2016, Tinder has compiled a list of the most desirable jobs for both men and women who are looking for love on the app. The results are pretty predictable, with the uniformed jobs making an appearance in the best careers that a man can have. However the most desirable job for women to behold just being a bit cringe, to be honest.
As you can see from the above table, it turns out that some stereotypes are based on truth. Women seem to love a man in uniform, with pilot taking the top spot and fire fighter, doctor, paramedic, police officer, and military all making an appearance in the top 15 for desirable jobs. For women, it turns out men like a physical therapist (I wonder why?), with teachers and nurses also unsurprisingly being popular.
Now you have that data, feel free to do what you like with it. If you're super desperate and fancy a change in your life, why not train to being a pilot or a physical therapist? Or, if you like me, you are constantly looking for ways to save time/money, why not just lie on your Tinder bio? Although it could get a little awkward a few months down the line when your partner asks for a massage and you do more harm than good.
