What Women Want: Jobs That Women Find the Most Attractive

No man is perfect and not all women are the same. When you meet a girl for the first time, there are certain things about your appearance, your behavior, or personality that will either help you score a second date or make them run away toward the other direction.

You are on the first impression and getting-to-know stage. It is natural and expected that you will present your best foot forward and you will be asked a few things about your life and who you are.

One topic that will likely come up when you go on a date is your profession. It is not about money at all. Some women are attracted to men who have cool jobs.

If you are wondering if your source of income will impress the ladies, here are the most desirable lines of work.


Tinder, one of the most popular dating apps in the world, conducted a study between late 2015 and early 2016 to find out which jobs received the most number of right swipes from women. No surprise, pilots came on top.

Many women are impressed with pilots. After all, flying a plane requires confidence. They are responsible for the safety of passengers who trusted them enough to get on the plane.

The uniform, too, plays a role. There is truth to the cliche that women are attracted to men in uniform because it represents power, strength, authority, and respect.

Men who have been planning to get a private pilot license, whether as a way to earn money or as a hobby, should go ahead. It alone will serve as a great pickup line at the bar.


Numerous women also swiped right to firefighters. Firefighters risk their lives to save others. In short, they are heroes.

Firefighters, because of the dangerous nature of their profession, are held in high esteem within society. People respect them and are in awe of what they do for the country.

One survey found that firefighters enjoy more job-related prestige compared to other professionals, including doctors and scientists.

Moreover, they are expected to be physically fit. Their work involves wearing a heavy uniform, carting around a heavy hose, and, occasionally, carry another human being out of a burning building.

Women feel that, if they have to be saved, they can rely on a fireman to bring them to safety.


It is seriously impressive when a man has established a successful brand. Business is a highly competitive field. There are mega-corporations to out-sell and equally hard-working entrepreneurs all working hard in order to gain a bigger slice of the market.

For a small startup to become a profitable company, an entrepreneur has to make major sacrifices and dedicate their time toward running a business.

When a man introduces himself as an entrepreneur, women recognize the difficulties of running a business and the drive to achieve success. Ambition is a potent aphrodisiac.

Are women attracted to lawyers? Yes, they are.

Lawyers are heralded as smart people. They studied hard for nearly a decade and passed the grueling bar exams, especially if they passed the California Bar Exams which is known to be one of the toughest in the world!

They also gain respect from the public and they are seen as powerful members of society. If you have ever watched a lawyer in court and win, you would understand why women find them irresistible.


Models make a living out of being attractive. Their good looks are above average and they spend so much of their time maintaining their physical appearance. They go to the gym regularly, they watch what they eat, and they dress up.

More importantly, models are confident. They have to be in order to face the camera or walk down the runway. There is nothing more unappealing than to see a man (or anyone, for that matter) be insecure and uncomfortable in their own skin.


It is not uncommon for women to find professors attractive. Whether you do home tuition or a university, many students actually develop a crush on their professor, even if the latter is older or not exactly conventionally good-looking.

Professors are experts in their fields and, therefore, are perceived as very smart. Women are impressed by their mastery of a subject especially if they are interested in the same field, too.

If your job is not included in this list, do not be afraid. While women are attracted to men of certain professions, they do not make a decision on whether they should pursue a potential romantic interest or not based on what they do for a living. Personality and a shared vision matters, too.
