Pilots and physical therapists top the list

Have you spent hours perfecting your Tinder profile blurb in a bid to right-swipe-bait a suitable lover? Us too. And if you too are keen to up your match count, pretending you’re a physical therapist might help, if you live in America, at least.

Disclaimer: we don't think leading with a lie is the best way to establish a meaningful romantic connection but you know, needs must.

Tinder has released a list detailing the occupations of US users that received the highest ratio of right swipes from November 2015 through January 2016 and women physical therapists are the most popular. We figure, if it’s meant to be, we’ll be able to explain away that ‘typo’ at a later date.

Male pilots also do extremely well on Tinder according to these lists – are we all still stuck in 1986, crushing on Tom Cruise in Top Gun? No judgement. None whatsoever.

Have a gander at the top 15 for men and women below. It’s very informative, and proof that whatever your gender if you’re a founder/entrepreneur everyone thinks you’re ace.

This is also a handy list to read through if you’re contemplating a career swap – lots of ideas here – but just ignore the gender headers. Let’s be honest these lists also perpetuate certain gender stereotypes...
