More people want to date lawyers than any other profession

Two have been named most-wanted singles in London

Lawyers have come out on top in the list of most desirable professions to date, research by hook-up app Happn has revealed.

With lawyers winning the battle for “top crushed job” for both women and men in the United States, the research also shows which professions narrowly missed out on the coveted prize. For women, the answer was designer, teacher, marketer and physician. For men, it was analyst, engineer, salesman and doctor.

This news comes shortly after Happn revealed its 18 most-wanted singles in London and — guess what — two lawyers feature. Fighting off competition from the other 800,000 Londoners who use the app, 31-year-old Mishcon de Reya junior associate Tom Phillips and 33-year-old financial adjudicator Benjamin Howell came in ninth and 15th place respectively.

The online dating world’s love affair with solicitors and barristers is well-documented. Back in September 2016, Tinder announced that lawyers were the most right-swiped profession for men on its popular dating app. For women, lawyers came in in sixth place, the top spot going to teachers.
