Last year, we did a “Best And Worst Careers For Love” survey which highlighted, among other things, that the five worst careers when it comes to finding love are: journalism (ha), business ownership, healthcare, real estate and law. This isn’t terribly surprising given the long hours of these careers, and how long it takes to ascend to the top in all of them.

But according to a new survey from eHarmony, maybe if these work addicts went for the opposite type of profession when it came to scoping out a potential love interest, they’d be happier. In honor of Labor Day, the online dating site looked at communication trends between their users to find out how they were influenced by people’s careers. It turns out that what you do for a living has a big influence on who you hit up online in your off-hours. Here are just a few of the tidbits they found:

1. Female business executives have the highest rate of communication with men who are barbers or hair stylists. Wait … really? I don’t see those two professions dating in real life too much. Maybe the businesswomen need hairstyle advice? Read more…

How Not To Make An Online Dating Video

In what has to be a comedic interpretation of a “bad” video dating profile, single gal Debbie executes the worst eHarmony profile of all time. There’s a lot to be learned from watching Debbie self-destruct on video. Namely, if you’d like to get a date, don’t cry about cats before you’ve met your suitors in person. Actually, don’t cry about cats in person either. You may want to save that for the third date or oh, NEVER. [Viddler] Keep reading »

Girl Talk: I Saw My Ex In An eHarmony Ad

I was sitting on my couch last night, watching a crappy movie on Comedy Central, when a familiar voice came on the TV. I looked up and felt queasy. It’s the guy I dated who caused me to stop dating altogether for the past five months. I wanted to finish his sentence with, “…it’s perfect for making a girl feel really wretched about herself.” At least he was alone in the commercial and not talking about his upcoming nuptials.

eHarmony Will Cater To Same-Sex Singles

Well, the online matchmaker said Wednesday it will launch a website to cater to same-sex singles seeking long-term relationships as a result of a settlement with New Jersey’s Civil Rights Division.

    Forget His Kiss, It’s In His DNA

    Finding that special someone can seem like an impossible search for a single gal, but the Swiss experts at Gene Partner have gotten the hunt down to a science. While normally it takes a little romance, a couple drinks, and at least one meal to know if a man is right for you and your crotch, these wise guys think they have it all figured out thanks to some stanky shirts. After a study was conducted at the University of Bern in which women picked which men’s t-shirt BO smelled the best to them, Dr. Wedekind was able to link that we’re subconsciously charmed by mates with the best baby making potential based on a dramatic difference in HLA, or the genes that inform your immune system. So, when it comes to long-term love and the success of your potential spawning, opposites do attract! But how do you get to know if your stats should bump uglies?

    eHarmony: The Video Game

    Just looking at those lovey-dovey eHarmony commercials, where couples joke about their “connection”, would make any single gal feel like her love life is dialup while her relationship counterparts have DSL. But apparently the spinster club has more in common with joy stick jockeys than we ever knew. A new ad for Electronic Arts Burnout Paradise, a video game car derby, has spoofed the giggly eHarmony ads. The clever double-entendres and cheeky puns will have you laughing harder at these commercials than you did the last time you got “winked at.” [Ad Week]
