Every woman is different, but you would probably agree that there are some categories of women that you meet a little more often than others. Below are 17 different types of women with all their intricacies and personality traits.
Can you recognise yourself in any of them?
1. The Party Animal
Every guy seems to want a girl who is fun, easy-going, and knows how to have a good time. Until he meets a real party animal and realizes that she is too much to handle. The party animal always has somewhere to go and someone to meet.
She is spontaneous, likes to drink and party until dawn. She is hard to tie down with a relationship, she just won’t commit. She thinks life’s too short to miss out on all the fun. Sitting at home on a Friday night with a takeaway is the last thing she wants to do.
She’s bored to death having to just sit still!
2. The Good Girl
It’s the woman you are more than happy to introduce to your mum. She’s just so nice, polite, and sensible. The good girl is marriage material, seemingly from the first date! She can still have fun but is reasonable enough to be able to tell the difference between fun and sensibility.
She knows how to do stuff the right way, she isn’t impulsive or erratic, she’s safe. A guy knows what to expect from her.
She makes plans, takes care of her life, has her priorities right, and treats men with respect. She’s fine being the good girl, her life is structured and predictable. Being with her feels easy.
The good girl sometimes misses out on fun and adventure because she’s just not cut that way.
3. The Nerd
This woman doesn’t care much about being girly, or being cool, or attracting guys. She is studious, focused, ambitious – she’s going places! Usually the ugly duckling in school, she could mature into a beautiful woman and still remain her nerdy self.
The nerd prefers to chill with a book on a Friday night than to go out partying. She’s smart and she likes being smart. She doesn’t try to dumb herself down to make herself more attractive to men.
4. The Manic Pixie Dream Girl
Coined by multiple Hollywood movies, the manic pixie dream girl is perhaps best depicted by the character of Summer in 500 Days of Summer. She’s the one any guy wants to be around. She’s fun but effortless. She’s pretty, but not overwhelmingly beautiful. She’s elusive, spontaneous, honest.
She knows what she wants and men fall for her straight away. Men can’t tame her and that’s confusing for them. She’s her own person – whimsical, eccentric, quirky. She has her rules for her life and she is unapologetically following her own path.
Does she exist in real life, beyond Hollywood movies? Perhaps! But we bet she won’t be the one to save the male character!
5. The Tomboy
This woman just doesn’t care about being girly or being attractive. She’s just a tomboy! She’s always been one of the boys and feels more comfortable surrounded by a bunch of men, drinking beer, than by giggling women talking about make-up.
The tomboy doesn’t judge men for how they talk about women in her presence either. She just doesn’t identify herself with most other women! She likes what she likes and doesn’t need to fit into society’s category of a standard woman.
6. The Spinster
The forever-alone woman never planned to be forever alone, it just happened to her. She still longs for an ex-boyfriend who dumped her and broke her heart 15 years ago. She has completely given up on online dating. Speed dating is below her intellectual level.
This woman is destined to die alone if she doesn’t change her ways and lower her expectations. It takes hard work even getting to know her, she’s so set in her ways and the idea that she will never marry that her entire attitude puts men off from even trying to win her over.
7. The Feminist
She’s got an opinion and she isn’t afraid to express it. Sometimes she can be so full on that she comes across as a man-hater. The feminist is always up to date on what’s going on in the world, and how women are impacted (especially by men’s decisions).
She likes to show that she’s a feminist – whether it’s a t-shirt, or a badge, or her Instagram profile, she wants people to know that they shouldn’t mess with her!
8. The Health Guru
This woman is all about health and wellness, she’s just cut differently. She meditates, does yoga, runs five times a week, doesn’t eat meat, stays away from gluten. She’s obsessed with fitness, looking and feeling good is her mantra.
All she talks about is her diet, her kombucha juice, and her perfect morning routine. The health guru often doesn’t know where to draw the line between being healthy and enjoying life to the fullest.
She also never fails to teach (and preach) the people in her life the right way of living, eating, exercising, breathing, the lot. She usually dates the health guru man, the only one who can keep up with her aspirational habits.
9. The Boss Babe
This woman needs no saving from a man or anyone else! She’s her own person, fully committed to bossing every professional goal she’s got! She’s climbing the career ladder, she’s straight-talking and entrepreneurial.
She’s got a plan for her life and doesn’t sit around waiting for things to just happen.
The boss babe usually struggles to maintain a long-lasting relationship, especially during the young adult years. She’s just too busy doing things and doesn’t want to sacrifice her career to sit at home and look after a man and children.
10. Daddy’s Girl
The daddy’s girl grew up being the little angel in the family, spoiled rotten by her dad, all her wishes always met. She grows up and realizes the world isn’t built to revolve around her every need! What a shock! She needs to actually do stuff for herself, like earn money, pay bills, have adult responsibilities.
The daddy’s girl will be exhibiting her special qualities throughout her adult life, she just can’t help herself.
No man is as good as her dad! No one deserves her, no one can take care of her. It’s truly a personality trait pattern! Careful if you grew up as the daddy’s girl, as lovely as that may have been. Nobody will be putting up with your tantrums in grown-up life.
11. The Jealous Type
Her blood boils whenever another female approaches her man. He’s not allowed to even look at other women, let alone be in their company for long. The jealous one might think she’s in the right to protect what’s hers, but what she doesn’t get is that it’s extremely off-putting to men to have to justify their love constantly.
It’s also one of those female traits that are super repulsive to others. Are you the jealous type? Perhaps you’ve always been, and it’s become the most natural feeling in the world. Girl, control your emotions!
Showing jealousy openly makes you look insecure and a little neurotic. It shows everyone you don’t know your worth! If you are the high-value woman any man wants to be with, then why are you jealous? You clearly need to work on your confidence!
12. The Mothering Type
This type of woman just can’t help but treat a man like his mother would. Whether it’s cooking all the time, driving him around, doing his laundry, or simply smothering him with her love, she might be a bit too much at times. She means well but no man wants to date their mother, do they?
If you have a feeling you may have become this type with the one you date, then stop and review all you do for him! It’s okay if it comes naturally and it’s no bother but remember to look after yourself too.
If you are constantly cleaning and looking after him, he just won’t see you as sexy anymore. And that’s the sure-fire way to kill a romantic relationship.
13. The Worrier
Her middle name is stress. Everything stresses her out. She texts her boyfriend 20 times a day just to check in on him. And if he doesn’t reply straight away she panics and starts calling him.
“Why didn’t you reply?”
“Are you okay?”
“When are you coming home?”
“Who are you hanging out with?”
If you are the type that lets anxiety get the best of you, then you need to make some big changes in your life, before you drag a man down into your stress-filled life.
Stress and anxiety are usually signs of being unable to control a situation. The unknown and unfamiliar are too stressful to handle.
Learn to focus on your circle of influence and let go of what you cannot control or change. It will make your life a lot happier and your boyfriend a lot calmer.
14. The Drama Queen
There’s never a dull moment with the drama queen, she’s just so emotional and expressive! Drama always seems to find her! A friend offended her, someone didn’t invite her to a party, a colleague said the wrong thing.
She takes things personally and tends to blow them out of proportion. She can also be naggy and critical of her man – things are never just chill with her. She often creates drama even in the most perfect situations, especially when there’s literally no need for it.
And she doesn’t even know why she does it! It’s just who she is!
15. The Beauty Queen
She loves pink, she has a huge collection of heels and she takes two hours to get ready. She’s a woman and she wants everyone to know it! She grew up looking after herself and believing that her appearance matters.
She often uses her looks to get her way or to influence people. She says no to activities that won’t present her in her most flattering light. She’s always taking selfies and asking her boyfriend to take 50 shots of her for Instagram before she approves one.
She is used to getting attention from men and being in the spotlight. Funnily enough, the beauty queen usually ends up with the least attractive guy around. We all know a few couples like that.
16. The Gold Digger
Unlike the boss babe, this woman believes that people (and especially men) owe her stuff. She is attracted to affluent men, expensive clothes, jewelry, fancy holidays…she wants it all! And she doesn’t feel like lifting a finger in order to get any of the material goods she fancies.
She wants to marry rich and never work another day in her life. She’s selective about her company and where she hangs out. Usually, the beauty queen and the material one meet in the same woman – expecting the best from life and unwilling to accept any less.
17. The Psycho
If women hate one thing the most it is being called crazy. But like it or not, some women just are! They will scratch your car after a break-up, text all your friends a picture of you naked, or start a horrible rumor. They might even steal your cat just for fun!
Some women live in crazy town, and there’s no point trying to explain it or justify it. They don’t know when to draw the line, and what’s right or wrong. They are impulsive, vindictive, erratic, emotional, and certainly not interested in justifying why they do what they do.
Best thing to do is stay well clear from the psycho!
