If you spend your days endlessly swiping your way through potential Tinder matches, you’ll probably be interested to hear that the platform’s most-matched users are pilots, if you’re a man. And a pilot.

Perhaps surprisingly, you might have expected ‘personal trainer’ to figure higher for both genders, but then who wants to date a gym rat?

Ultimately, pilots, physical therapists and models being among the most swiped-right users seems to be an unavoidable cliche.
