Turns out, little boys who dreamt of becoming glamorous pilots were onto something.
According to dating app Tinder, pilots received the most “right swipes” -- the Tinder equivalent of expressing interest in someone -- among their male users. For women, the top job was physical therapist, not surprisingly.
The rest of the list includes some expected and stereotypical findings. For men, firefighter, doctor, personal trainer and lawyer made the top 15. For women, interior designer, PR/communications, nurse and flight attendant made the cut.
Founders and entrepreneurs ranked very high for both genders, and so did models and college students, which is not surprising given Tinder’s popularity among college-aged singles and it’s looks-based approach to browsing for potential mates.
In November, Tinder introduced the job section to profiles, as well as where users went to school. To compile the most right-swiped jobs, Tinder says it looked at user data from the last three months in the U.S. Here are the complete lists:
