You know the regular grind: You spend eight hours of day, staring at a screen, doing whatever task-based job you’re being paid on a weekly basis to do… but sometimes, you just want to see who else is single and ready to mingle at 2 on a Tuesday afternoon.
Dating app the Grade revealed the six occupations that are most likely to break from their workday to search for that special someone, and we were horrified (but not surprised) to see who came out on top. The data is based on 450,000 swipes on their app gathered during work hours on February 20.

3. Teachers (26%)
Not like they hold the fate of future generations’ lives in their hands or anything.

On the flipside, occupations with the least amount of work hour activity? Lawyers, investment bankers, and students. But who wants to date those guys anyway.
