Tinder may focus primarily on looks but it appears that your profession can also play a part in how many right swipes you get on the dating app.

In November, Tinder introduced the ability for users to add their job and education information to their profiles - the "most-requested" feature on the app.

And now it has released a list of the top 15 professions that get the most right swipes (or 'likes' for those who have never used the app).

The top job for men, in terms of generating the most right swipes, is pilot. It makes sense: ipilots have access to cheap exotic travel, they can invite their partners to join the mile-high club and, well, the uniform.

Company founders and entrepreneurs came in second, followed by firefighters, doctor and TV/radio personality.

Women who are good with their hands fare well as it was revealed that physical therapist is the occupation most likely to spark a swiping frenzy in potential partners.

Interior designer, founder or entrepreneur, PR or communications, and teacher rounding out the top five.

As Tinder's data shows, being a founder/entrepreneur is highly desirable; the occupation made the top five on both lists. Men find models are more alluring than dental hygienists or nurses, where females would choose a doctor or engineer over a pretty face.

Tinder claims that linking your job and education gets you more matches on the site, unless your job is not on the list, presumably.

“Job and education integration has been one of the most requested features from Tinder profiles, allowing users to make more informed choices when deciding to swipe left, right, or even up to indicate a Super Like,” Tinder says.

“Although it is optional to share job and education on a profile, Tinder has found that sharing leads to more matches …adding your job to your profile is a great way to provide additional insight for potential matches.”
