These Occupations Are The Most Likely To Get You Tinder Matches, Per Tinder's CEO

Who you match with on Tinder has a lot to do with your profile. What do you look like in your photos? Are there tons of other people hanging out with you, making you indistinguishable? Does your byline have a good joke or opener? While these are all important, there’s another factor at play as well: your job. Tinder CEO Sean Rad revealed the top five careers that women are most likely to swipe right on, and on some of these, I’m a little confused. Let’s break it down, shall we?

5. TV/Radio Personality
This one sends mixed signals to me. While I’m down to swipe right on a famous celeb (hey, Tom Hardy), the chances of me sending interest to my local news anchor or very slim. Even slimmer are the chances of me taking a shot with my local radio DJ. That is, unless you’re Wells Adams, in which case… call me.

4. Doctor
Do I want to be married to a doctor? Yes. Do I want to be married to $250K of student loan debt? Absolutely not. To be perfectly honest, I’d probably at least give this guy a right swipe and a couple of dates to figure out his financial situation, but unless he got a killer scholarship, chances are that this one won’t materialize into anything more than a few expensive dinners.

3. Firefighter
Here’s the deal, fam. Would I match this guy on eHarmony? No. Would I swipe him on Tinder if I were in town for a weekend bachelorette party? Absolutely. 10/10 understand the swipe statistics on this one.

2. Founder/Entrepreneur
Like TV/Radio personality, this one has a partial shot of success dependent on the career path. Tbh, I’m going to want to know your amount of success, your past accomplishments, and whether or not you’ll be draining my bank account to help you chase your “dreams.” With that said, I’ll definitely go ahead and give you a swipe because I’ll never know if you’re a millionaire if I never ask.

1. Pilot

Overall, I see what’s going on here. While not all of these guys will be cut out for long-term success, some guys either fulfill a fantasy, the promise of high incomes down the line, or at least have the potential to be as successful as a millennial can be in 2016. It probably won’t work out with Kevin the firefighter, but that doesn’t mean I don’t want him to buy me one or five vodka crans either. I’ll give all of these guys a chance, but I won’t consider wedding bells unless your bio has a bank account balance, ya hear?
