Her strengths: This woman is funny, hot, and spontaneous. When you walk into a room with her, everyone stares at you in envy. Neil Strauss, the author of the best-selling dating memoir The Game, puts it simply, “This is the kind of girl everyone wants, and it makes you feel awesome when you’re the one who has her.“
Her weaknesses: "You need enormous confidence to date a woman like this,” Strauss says. “She gets off on attention, but you can’t get jealous.” If you’re independent, you’ll dig her ambition, but make sure she wants you–and not just the ego boost you provide.
The Arty Hipster: PISCES, GEMINI
Her strengths: She knows where all the dive bars are and all the art shows with free wine. She’s exciting and stylish, but not as untouchable as the urban sophisticate. “She actually likes nerds and intellectuals,” says Ian Coburn, author of God Is a Woman: Dating Disasters. And she actually cares about culture. “She can be great for a guy who wants to learn more about art and music,” says Ian Kerner, Ph.D., a relationship therapist and the author of She Comes First.
Her weaknesses: Do you keep going after her because you hope her cool will rub off on you? If your interests don’t match, don’t expect to just coast along on her taste. “Girls like this have opinions,” Kerner says. “And they want you to know the difference between Jonathan Adler and Jonathan Richman.”
The Vegan Yoga Gal: AQUARIUS, LIBRA
Her strengths: She’s got great skin and a long neck, and she gives you long back rubs with wacky oils. All that deep breathing means she rarely flies off the handle, and you value this perhaps even more than you value her amazing, high, tight rear, which is saying a lot. Strauss says, “This is a woman who really wants to make a deep connection with life, and a man who wants the same could be really into her.” Fisher says that independent, analytical, or creative guys could find her alternative view fascinating.
Her weaknesses: Remember, Strauss notes, “These women are almost exclusively interested in men who are into the same stuff they are.” Love her, love her lifestyle.
The Alpha Female: VIRGO, ARIES
Her strengths: She graduated from college in 3 years and went right to law school without taking a vacation. She’s hard to keep up with. Ironically, it’s not the alpha dog who should try dating her. “A scientist, artist, or teacher will do well with this woman,” says April Masini, author of Date Out of Your League. “If you’re not interested in power plays, she won’t fight you."
Her weaknesses: She has a lot in common with alpha males, but these relationships are too intense. "They can’t make time for each other,” Fisher says. Coburn cautions that pushover types are often attracted to such women, and some alpha females – the sadistic ones – are attracted right back. “Obviously, if this is your dynamic, it isn’t good.”
The Intimacy Junkie: CAPRICORN, SCORPIO
Her strengths: She goes to yoga, too, but it’s the easy kind that’s more about “connection to the self” than sculpting a smoking bod. So what if she’s a little in your face. The sex is amazing. Strauss likes women like this. “She is the best kisser in the world. Very intense, very into connecting.” Fisher says independent men will love such a deeply verbal gal, and Kerner thinks all men should date someone like this. “Most men need help learning to communicate, and she will help them."
Her weaknesses: The intimacy junkie makes you feel great at first. She’s so into you and your feelings. Analytical men will find themselves easily ensnared in her macramé web. "He will be super into her at first, but there’s going to be a lot of talk about the ‘meaning’ of the relationship, which might cause it to implode,” Fisher says.
The Happy Homemaker: CANCER, TAURUS
Her strengths: She’s no gold digger – all she wants is a Volvo wagon and a nice, cozy three-bedroom. She wants to have your kids, take care of them, and take care of you. “Some guys draw a great deal of ego satisfaction from providing for a family, and there is nothing wrong with that,” says Masini. A man who grew up in a very traditional household will love her, and, conversely, a guy who grew up with domestic chaos craves this woman for the stable home she provides.
Her weaknesses: Remember that when she says she’s not going to work, she means it. Career-minded men could be happy with an arrangement that allows them to focus on their work while she manages his domestic life. But if the financial stress builds, you may not be able to convince her to get a job.

Stuff caregivers should have on hand when they’re with their little, or when their little is over at their place, etc!
✨ A pacifier, if your little uses them! Sometimes your little can get fussy or maybe just wants to curl up and take a nap, and having a pacifier on hand can be very helpful.
✨ Super cool band-aids with Hello Kitty or princesses or other themes your little likes on their band-aids for when they get boo-boos, no matter how small. (Because all injuries, regardless of whether it’s just a tiny cut, scrape, or bruise, deserve utmost care from Daddy/Mommy, and must be treated with soft kisses and tenderness and covered with only the cutest band-aids! Duh.)
✨ Your little’s favorite juice or drink, as well as a sippy cup (if your little uses sippy cups) to put said drink in! If not, then juice boxes will do, as I believe they work just as well.
✨ A coloring book, as well as utensils to color, such as crayons or colored pencils! (Make sure you know what your little’s preference is when it comes to what they use to color! It’s very important.)
✨ A small stuffie for if your little wants one to hold/cuddle. Personally, I find It’s also smart to keep a few cute stuffies at your place if your little doesn’t live with you, so when they come over, they’re there for them to play with! (Stuffies are also great for aftercare, so if ever needed, they can have stuffies there to cuddle with for that purpose as well.)
✨ Some of their favorite little snacks in baggies! Snacks could be things like pretzels, pieces of cereal, fruit snacks, yogurt chips, pieces of fruits or veggies, crackers, etc.
✨ Some of their favorite candy to give as treats for good behavior! (Clearly, you shouldn’t give them the whole bag at any point– but if they do something deserving of a reward, then you could give them some of their favorite candy!)
✨ If your little is fond of pet-play as well, you could have a collar at your place for them to wear, as well as gear, if they have any! (Ears, tail, etc.)
✨ Some DVDs or tapes of your little’s favorite movies for when they’re in little space! You could also get Netflix if possible; it would be a good platform to have not only their favorite movies, but it’d also let them watch their favorite shows as well!
✨ Games for them to play! If they have a platform they play games on, whether it be a DSI or just their phones, tell them to bring it with them. This way, they’ll have something to do if you’re busy with something you’re working on! (But, if you’re not busy and they still want to play, then you can just keep them company and offer supportive encouragement!)
✨ Super cute stickers! This way, if your little is in the mood, they can decorate your face, pictures they’ve drawn/colored, and anything else nearby!
✨ Your hands, in order to give plentiful pets and rubs and gentle scratchies.
✨ ALL THE LOVE AND ATTENTION YOU HAVE TO GIVEEeeeee
That’s all I can think of, but please feel free to add on to the list if there’s anything else you believe caregivers should consistently possess!
