Used to be women thought doctors were hot. Not so much any more, according to a new study.
The study by SeekingArrangement.com, the world’s largest Sugar Daddy dating site (yes, that’s how they describe themselves), asked 20,670 American women which jobs they found the sexiest when considering a potential partner. Entrepreneur, with 27 percent of the responses of those surveyed, topped the list.
Women it seems think entrepreneurs are the ideal partner because they are “are the inventors of new economies,” according to the study.
“Let’s face it. Men’s occupations have and will continue to play an integral role in the dating world. As women take on more roles in the economy, their partner’s occupation is the difference between living comfortably and (having disposable income),” says Brandon Wade, founder and CEO of SeekingArrangement.
After entrepreneur, high-profile, power positions rounded out the top three: politician or government official then professional athlete. After this came: financial analyst; executive or CEO; lawyer/attorney; computer and information systems manager; marketing manager; dentist; and financial planner. No MD in sight.
Clearly, women are looking for more than just money, however. While some entrepreneurs make headlines for the financial success they attain, many more struggle to get companies off the ground and keep them afloat. On the other hand, there’s always a need for a doctor, particularly those that go into in-demand specialties.
An entrepreneur also exudes the personality traits that people find attractive: ambition, a risk taker, a dreamer, a thinker, someone who doesn’t clock in and clock out, but carves their own path. That kind of innovation is highly respected these days, particularly in a world where technology development is pushing the envelope further and further.
