Two dating apps suggest the most attractive jobs for both a man and woman.

Dating sites sometimes release these morsels of information and we have no idea how scientific they are.

Alternative claims for the most attractive jobs come from Badoo, another dating company.

Their list looks a little different — perhaps reflecting the cultural divide between the US and the UK.

For women, the most attractive jobs were:

  1. Hairdresser
  2. Nurse
  3. Lawyer
  4. Entrepreneur
  5. Teacher
