Bricklayer and professor? No chance

The study compared the information provided by female academics with those of women without a university degree. It turns out that with women academics, men in professions that do not require a degree have little chance. Only 15 percent of female academics find craftsmen attractive. For women without a university degree, it is every fourth woman who finds craftsmen attractive. There is a similar discrepancy in the information given with regard to cooks and firefighters.

Nurses are attractive, nurses are not

Men in occupations with more female connotations are less sought after by women, while women in these occupations are very popular with men. Every fourth man finds nurses attractive, while only seven percent of women find nurses attractive.

Women don't love down

"When choosing a partner, unconscious patterns take effect," comments Dr. Jost Schwaner, Managing Director of the results. "Although most women today are no longer dependent on a provider, they still want a partner with a high social status. Doctor and architect stand for a high level of education and a good income. The ElitePartner principle is based on this approach, we provide ours Members have partners with a similar level of education. The higher the level of education, so do the demands of women. Men are more flexible when it comes to choosing a partner: They fall in love more often than women, downwards.
