Teachers Love Firemen: How Your Career Influences Who You Date
Put Some Spice In Your Lovelife - Try Someone Different
Opposites don't just attract, they seek each other out. A new survey from eHarmony finds that people in completely different careers are more compatible with each other.
Fast food and high tech. Barista and bouncer. Mime and opera singer. According to a new analysis from online dating profiles, we're more likely to be attracted to someone with an opposite career.
"When it comes to who's talking to who, most people are looking to talk to someone who does something different than themselves," said a spokesperson for eHarmony.
For example, female teachers were found to be most likely to be attracted to firemen. Unemployed men, who you would imagine would be most in love with pizza and Xbox, were most likely to be attracted to female personal trainers.
Mira Kirshenbaum, author of Is He Right? Everything You Need To Know Before You Commit, says it's all because we want to be stimulated by someone different.
"Chemistry has nothing to do with how similar your backgrounds are," she told Match.com. "The more different kinds of guys a woman will let herself get involved with, the more likely she is to find that great chemistry that's the only reliable predictor of a satisfying, long-lasting relationship."
