5 Surprising Ways Your Job Influences Who You’re Attracted Toby YourTango on September 05, 2012
Last year, we did a “Best And Worst Careers For Love” survey which highlighted, among other things, that the five worst careers when it comes to finding love are: journalism (ha), business ownership, healthcare, real estate and law. This isn’t terribly surprising given the long hours of these careers, and how long it takes to ascend to the top in all of them.
But according to a new survey, maybe if these work addicts went for the opposite type of profession when it came to scoping out a potential love interest, they’d be happier. In honor of Labor Day, the online dating site looked at communication trends between their users to find out how they were influenced by people’s careers. It turns out that what you do for a living has a big influence on who you hit up online in your off-hours. Here are just a few of the tidbits they found:
Female business executives have the highest rate of communication with men who are barbers or hair stylists.
Women who consider themselves “stay at home” have the highest rate of communication with men who are dentists.
Unemployed men have the highest rate of communication with women who are personal trainers.
Female doctors have the highest rate of communication with men who are bankers.
Male bankers and analysts are very likely to communicate with female teachers.
There you go. We all just want someone who’ll cook dinner for us every night. Maybe that’s why the business executives and hair stylists choose each other. On that note, it’s almost 7 p.m., so I should really go home and heat up some Chinese food leftovers.
Do you date people in your own industry or branch out?
