Experiment brings good news for builders on dating app

A new study has revealed that listing your occupation as builder can almost double your chances of finding a match on dating app Tinder!

Ahead of Valentine’s Day 2020, research has shown that adding your profession to your profile can increase your chances of a Tinder match.

Showerstoyou.co.uk investigated whether adding a tradesman job to your profile would increase your chances of a right swipe, and if so, which type of tradesman would make you most attractive to the opposite sex.

The firm created male Tinder profiles, ensuring the name, picture and age remained unchanged, with only the bio changing to each different tradesman job. Each profile was left online for two days, swiping right to a total of 200 people.

On average, male profiles that did not have a tradesman job in their bio received 60 matches over the course of two days. However, by adding a tradesman job into their profile, those matches increased to as many as 111. On average, a male with a tradesman job received 80.6 matches in that timeframe.

The job that got the most matches was a builder, with 111 matches.  This was shortly followed by plumbers at 101 matches.
