Most people have various criteria that a potential dating partner must meet - but what about their job?

A recent survey has shown that people's professions can prove to be a deal-breaker when it comes to fancying someone - by revealing the jobs the opposite sex find least attractive.

Traffic wardens topped the poll with a huge 35 per cent.

Next came lorry drivers (28 per cent) and those who work in the armed forces (22 per cent).

And although some men may like to visit a stripper, they certainly don't see one as a possible girlfriend, as they came fourth with 16 per cent of the vote.

The research, which was carried out by, also discovered the biggest no-nos when it comes to earning a living - danger, unsociable hours, and being a jobsworth were all listed.

And it also seems that money can buy you happiness if this research is anything to go by. Over a quarter of people admitted that they wouldn't date someone who is poorly paid.

Spokesperson Matthew Wood said: "Some of the jobs on the list are quite surprising. While traffic wardens are often regarded in a negative light, is their job really that bad?"
