So you think you’re hot stuff on the dating market because you’re a rising young legal star earning megabucks at a powerhouse law firm. Think again. A recent survey of 5,000 people by Salary.com found that lawyers ranked 10th on a list of the top “sexiest” jobs. The top three “hot jobs” were firefighter, flight attendant and chief executive officer. Lawyers ranked just below doctors and just above veterinarians. The folks at Salary.com seemed to think their survey shows that salary is not a key component in determining a person’s sex appeal. But what do Florida lawyers think of those results? Fort Lauderdale labor lawyer Alex Londono, 29, doesn’t buy it. He passed the Florida bar exam two months ago. The lawyer at Fisher & Phillips reports steady success on the social circuit. “As long as I slip in how much I make,” he added with a laugh. Londono offered another bit of evidence that the survey may be flawed. After he passed the bar exam, his mother bought him a shirt that reads, “Trust me, I’m a lawyer.” Contrary to the survey findings, he said, wearing the shirt increases his chances of chatting up women. It doesn’t hurt that he speaks French. Even if their sex appeal is dipping, lawyers are still better endowed, financially speaking, than professionals who ranked higher in the survey. Salary.com reports that the median salary for lawyers is more than three times that of news reporters, who ranked third on the sexy jobs list. That means lawyers can afford to console their lonesome selves with solo trips to exotic vacation destinations, while poor but charismatic journalists must invite their dazzling dates home to dine on Ramen noodles. But wait. News reporters ranked third, in a three-way tie with interior designers and event planners. That seems preposterous enough to invalidate the whole survey.
