Everyone uses dating apps, and sites, for  different reasons — to find someone to take home for the night, find someone to take to your parent's house on Thanksgiving, or just find someone to talk to. And let's be honest, there are an increasing number of people using online dating services just to mess with people.

According to a new study from the dating app Clover, there is a correlation between what people use dating apps for and what they do for a living.

Clover collected data from 33,000 of its 90,000 users throughout the U.S. to see which professions are more likely to look for true love, casual flings, hookups or platonic friends through their app.

The study found that that pharmacists, designers, psychologists, programmers, accountants, and nurses use Clover mostly to find long-term relationships.

However, the journalists, teachers, cops, scientists, musicians, and construction workers using the app are just looking for something casual, as are the people who work in public relations and advertising.

The results of the study also showed that doctors and lawyers largely turn to Clover to find friends, and the actors and engineers using Clover are more interested in hooking up.

We're just wondering what types of relationships people on are looking for, which is apparently a dating site catering exclusively to those working in death-related fields. Learn something new every day, right?

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
