Young women today are said to fall into four categories and determining what type of woman you have your eye is can help you decide the ideal date to woo her.
The most common of the categories is Go-for-it Girls. Some 31 per cent of respondents in the survey by Cosmopolitan fell under this umbrella.
They are characterised by their modern outlook and the belief that women are just as capable as men.
Housewife Hopefuls are the next most common breed of 21st century women with 31 per cent. For them, the ultimate goal is getting married and settling down. More than 60 per cent of these women said a career was not important.
Restless Explorers, with 21 per cent, can be hard to pin down. They are said to constantly change their man and job, with 45 per cent saying they find it hard to commit in case there is something better round the corner.
With just 16 per cent, Pleasure Seekers are once again difficult to net. They believe in living for the moment and are often into casual relationship.
However, overall, 93 per cent of women favoured committed relationship.
And 59 per cent say they think women wear the trousers in most relationships, with 72 per cent believing they can do anything they put their minds to.
So, guys, you better start getting original with your dating ideas.
