For women, the most right-swiped jobs are engineers, accountants, doctors, interior designers, dentist, data analysts, marketing managers, artists, teachers and psychologists.

As clinical psychologist Sonali Gupta decodes: "Men in creative professions may be considered more sensitive and communicative, and this could contribute to why women are swiping right, while men seem to be attracted to women who hold positions of authority and responsibility, which in turn reflects greater independence.

"This can be game-changing and can contribute further to breaking gender hierarchies."

Explaining why profession matters while dating someone, Gupta said: "Your choice of career can give an insight into a person's character, a glimpse into their lifestyle. People often feel it's easier to communicate with someone who understands their career sensibilities and constraints, and is most often a starting point for shared meaning narratives, which contribute towards eventual healthy relationships.

"Realistically, your choice of job also reflects passion and ambition - two factors that can be very appealing when choosing a potential partner."
