Spending time with these guys can actually make you feel on top of the world.
Mr nice romantic guy
He'll show up with flowers, leave cards around your apartment and quote Keats on a whim.
What he'll teach you - This affectionate man will display softer side of men, raising your expectations. After realising this, you'll be less likely to stay with someone who degrades or ignores you in the future.
The catch - Most of the time these guys are in love with the idea of being in love. This means they'll come on strong, but lose momentum in the long haul.
Mr big shot
He dresses sharp, talks slick and has the coiffed looks of a man straight out of a glam magazine.
What he'll teach you - Dinners will be four-star and the conversation will be witty. You'll walk away from this relationship more sophisticated and well aware of your inner vixen.
The catch - He's going in for the kill. He knows exactly what he's doing and the effect it has on you. The odds of this guy slipping out of his suit and into a comfy relationship are low. Enjoy the smooth ride around town while it lasts.
Mr man's man
He carries your bags, will defend your honour and would rather swallow glass than shave his chest.
What he'll teach you - There's something about raw masculinity that brings out the damsel in us.
The catch - You're dying to be wined and dined but he's already made plans to meet you at the pub. He's also prone to affairs with his favorite sports teams.
Mr sexy older guy
He's been involved with enough women to know that you require much more than dinner and a few martinis to get into the mood.
What he'll teach you - He's got a lifetime of experience to share (in and out of the bedroom). He'll also show you how to see life in a different way. No matter how long it lasts or how it ends, you'll walk away worldly wiser, and will never settle for a measly five minutes of foreplay again.
The catch - If you're just starting to get comfortable in your skin, and he's shed his, several times, there's a good chance you'll have issues with long-term compatibility.
Mr Fun Social Guy
Whether he's out with friends or meeting the family for brunch, one thing is for certain - He's going to be the life of the party.
What he'll teach you - You'll laugh a lot and learn how to go with the flow and let things slide.
The catch - They love the excitement of something new. This poses an issue for long-term love. Don't be afraid to walk away to more stable ground.
