Have you ever wanted to do better on Tinder? Are you willing to change your entire lifestyle and career path to make it happen? If you answered yes to both of those questions, there's some good news for you! Tinder recently released a list of the most popular professions for each gender. If you're not having any romantic luck as an architect, perhaps you can turn things around by becoming a lawyer!
Here's the list of 15 most popular jobs for men:
1. Interior Designer
3. Physician's Assistant
7. Visual Designer
9. College/Graduate Student
And these 15 jobs are the most likely to score date if you're a woman:
1. Registered Nurse
4. College/Graduate Student
7. Flight Attendant
9. Personal Trainer
11. Physical Therapist
13. Makeup Artist
15. Marketing Manager
There are definitely some shocks in these lists! Unlike the last time Tinder released their data on the most popular professions, doctor doesn't appear on either one (though pharmacist, nurse, chiropractor, and "physicians assistant" are all present). Other past popular professions for men that are conspicuously absent this time around include "TV/Radio Personality, Personal Trainer, Financial Advisor, Police Officer, [and] Military."
The jobs that disappeared from the women's list were Model, PR/Communications, Speech-Language Pathologist, Social Media Manager, Dental Hygienist, Real Estate Agent, and Interior Designer. What happened to interior designer, you ask? Well, it's now appearing as number one on the popular male professions list—women love a man who can organize a room.
Being an active college/grad student appeared on both lists, though some analysts question whether being a student is actually desirable or whether the app's data simply recognizes it as popular because so many of its users are still in school.
In general, it seems each gender is looking for similar professional qualifications in their suitors: a good income, job security, and perhaps just a hint of intrigue (dating a firefighter or a flight attendant could actually be a little tricky, but certainly doesn't lack in novelty).
Twitter sounded off on some of the most popular professions:
Well, it looks like it's time to go back to school. A new degree might involve some debt, but it will all be worth it for some extra matches!
