I saw this on GMTV this morning, it's quite interesting!

A gender expert has identified 27 different categories of men, which he says will help women to have a better understanding of potential partners.


Dr Stephen Whitehead, sociologist, gender expert and author of The Many Faces of Men, has spent 15 years watching men and has come up with an A-Z of male types.


The good news is that men don't need to be stuck in a category - according to Stephen they can change.

The 27 types of men

Stephen says: "Each type has his strengths and weaknesses, each type has positive and negative characteristics. Like most other aspects of life and the human condition, everything is in the eye of the beholder."

The 27 different types of men are as follows:

Achilles - Sophisticated and charming, but flawed and needy.

Adonis - Obsessed with his body, usually sports a fake tan.

Alpha Male - Extremely competitive in business and mostly reliable in love.

Backpacker - Sexy and charming, but dangerous. Lacking in commitment.

Chameleoman - Adaptable, patient and careful, but never just the man you think he is.

Club Man - Blazers, old school ties, football shirts. Into male bonding.

Cool Poser - Very fashion conscious but desiring respect more than sex.

Corporate Man - Relishes security, a follower not a leader, but faithful.

Gadgetman - Techno-freak, poor eyesight, insular and socially inept.

Jeffrey - Social animal in a world of half-truths. Compelling character.

Jester - Loves laughter and an audience but prone to melancholy.

Lib-man - Pro-feminist male, politically correct, very well read.

Manchild - Ageing stud with rich tastes and little dignity.

Mr Angry - Moody, aggressive but doesn't see his actions as damaging.

Murdoch - Napoleonic self-belief, usually justified. Ruthless, untiring.

Neanderthal - Anti-feminist with outdated views on relationships.

Preacher - Fundamentalist views. Single-minded, fervent and intense.

Risker - Optimistic and overdrawn at the bank, likes to push his luck.

Romancer - Calculating seducer, dislikes women but pursues them.

Rottweiler - patriotic hard-drinker who loves his mates and his country.

Sigmund - Lots of inner angst low self-esteem but reliable and caring.

Teddy Bear - Sensitive, vulnerable and a good listener - but not sexy.

Trainspotter - Middle-aged, plenty of brown cardigans, and obsessed with data collection.

Uniform Man - Emotionally insecure. Ridid, brittle temperament.

Wallflower - Unambitious couch potato with predictable behaviour.

Wayne - Heroic, unchanging, loyal and steadfast. Think John Wayne.

Zebedee - Floundering and confused, needs nurturing, unreflective but busy.

My boyfriend doesn't fit into ANY of those categories. I guess closest would be Teddy Bear, except many (especially myself) find him very attractive and sexy.

I like a combination of Gadgetman, Jester, and Lib-man.


God wants you to send me some money.
