"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 Match.com. 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
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.
