HR Strange But True!
February 11, 2004

We all know that HR is never dull, but sometimes it can get downright strange...

Hot for teacher--but not necessarily lawyers, an online dating service, is marking Valentine's Day by releasing the results of a poll that asked this question: What profession makes for the sexiest and most ideal Valentine?

Here's how the participants-800 single adults-responded:

Teacher - 12%
Artist - 11%
Chef - 9%
Personal trainer - 8%
Firefighter - 8%
Business Executive - 8%
Writer - 7%
Doctor - 4%
Bartender - 4%
Police Officer - 3%
Actor 3%
Pilot - 3%
Lawyer - 2%
Other - 19%

"Teachers are seen as caring, dedicated and often selfless people, working long hours to educate our children and make all of our lives better-certainly demonstrating a generosity of spirit that many of us find attractive," said Trish McDermott, "vice president of romance" at Previous research by the service indicated that married people were most likely to cite "quality of character" as the No. 1 reason they fell in love with their spouse.

The largest percentage in the poll actually went to "Other," which included a plethora professions such as nurse, scientist, librarian, and stripper. But most who answered "other" indicated that profession didn't matter.
