Most of us are guilty of being distracted by texting, G-chatting or mindless Web surfing at work. With the rising popularity of mobile dating, such as Tinder and specialized dating apps like The Grade, we’re not just texting at work. We’re swiping.

Thanks to a compilation of statistics by The Grade, those who use mobile dating apps in the office have been caught red-handed!

The infographic below reveals which occupations (including journalists, real estate brokers, lawyers, etc.) have the highest swiping activity during work hours from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday.
