Someone went through a bunch of census stats, looking at single people over 40 and the various jobs they have.  And “bartender” is one of them. 74% of bartenders over 40 are single. It’s the #1 job with single men over 40 and also made the top ten for women.

The top five single-guy jobs are:

  1. Bartender
  2. Tile installer
  3. Transportation screener
  4. Food prep worker
  5. Parts salesman

The top five jobs with single women over 40 are:

  1. Postal clerk
  2. Veterinary assistant
  3. Personal care worker
