Tinder dates all round in firms and chambers

Lawyers have come out on top in the quest to find the most right-swiped profession on Tinder in the country.

Fending off competition from the likes of actors, journalists, personal trainers, doctors and models, lawyers have been named the most right-swiped profession for men on the popular dating app.

Interestingly, over on the women’s leader board, female lawyers featured in sixth place, above personal trainers and musicians and also beating models, but below teachers, dentists and speech pathologists.

This is certainly not a bad effort from our UK solicitors and barristers, especially when you compare these findings with data from across the pond.

Back in February, the hook-up app released data from the United States of America naming lawyers as the sixth most right-swiped profession in the men’s ranks. Female legal buffs, however, didn’t make the top 15.

Are we surprised UK lawyers have fared so well? Of course not — one look at the latest barrister hottie list, along with Legal Cheek’s definitive countdown of the 25 sexiest solicitors in the City, shows why.

Honestly, I don’t know what I would do with LC. Always able to rely on them to keep me up to date with all legal news like this great story here. Honestly LC, this is one of the most in depth legal articles I have ever read, hats off to you…

it’s actually somewhat useful for male lawyers in that it might give them a confidence boost in relation to how they think members of the opposite sex view their profession, in a superficial sense, anyway.

That could just tell you that there are more lawyers than anyone else on Tinder.

One would hope that they adjusted for that possibility when carrying out the survey…

This is probably due to there being a surplus of lawyers on Tindr, which in itself is probably more a testament to (a) hours in the office and consequent lack of social life making it more difficult to meet people normally; coupled with (b) the crippling social awkwardness / borderline Aspergers almost everyone in the legal profession seems to suffer from; than to any implicit eligibility of the legal profession’s bachelorhood.

Er, not sure if the “crippling social awkwardness” is a local thing, but here in Aus, you wouldn’t have a chance of being a lawyer unless you had exceptional social skills.

I think he was just being hyperbolic. Most of the lawyers I work with are exceptionally outgoing people.

Probably somebody pretending to be a speech therapist and getting the name wrong. On the whole, speech is not a disease.

Well I don’t know where you got these stats from as they definitely aren’t the latest…

Considering a month ago in the news the latest job stats for dating apps showed very different results…

Out of date again Legal Cheek?

I count myself extremely fortunate that I have no idea what this article is about.

What is “right swiped”?

A speech pathologist is, inter alia, a person who specialises in clinical speech disorders, such as, de-railment, dislocation, compulsive abuse etc which in turn are almost always co morbid

Is this it? I got it from a criminal cant dictionary.
Swipe right
(verb) A phrase used to describe your acceptance of something. The term was originally a reference to the Tinder app. On Tinder, swiping right means you approve of a male/female after judging them by a few picture and a short bio. “Swipe right” can be used anytime you make a good choice or approve of something.
Original usage:

That girl Hannah over there is really hott. I would definitely swipe right on her.

Other uses:

“These burritos are so good! I’m glad we swiped right on Chipotle.

Tom: Did you see the trailer for that new video game?
Dan: Swipe right!

Dana: How do you feel about Nic Cage?
Peter: Swipe right!.. No homo.

Oh it’s the best son.

Get laid three, four times in a night, then take a morning Uber back to the office. Bump a line of the good stuff to keep you awake and off you go.

I luv my lyfe.

Maybe there are more men who lie about their profession in order to attract the ladies
