With Valentine’s Day around the corner, the City’s single bankers can draw a relief, as their jobs are among the most attractive to the opposite sex.

Both men and women found banker to be among the top ten sexiest professions when dating site eHarmony studied its users’ preferences.

  2. Marketing
  3. Advertising
  4. Teacher
  5. Physical Therapist
  6. Flight Attendant
  7. Banker
  8. Accountant

The site has also crunched the numbers on the most compatible jobs, or the combinations most likely to talk to each other.

The results showed that female bankers were most likely to end up with a physical therapist, while male bankers go for architects.

The site did not release any data for same-sex couples.
