Every woman is unique, her mind is like an endless universe, her feelings are something that not everyone can grasp.
So it would be really pointless to fit all girls into boxes.
That is why we won’t even try.
We will just state the fact that there are some general types of girls and there is always one or even a few types to which any girl can relate.
To put it in the words of Coco Chanel:
“A girl should be two things: who and what she wants.”
We couldn’t agree more. No one has the right to say who a woman should be and we are all individuals with our own wishes, fears and strengths.
One thing is for sure though—there are no limits to what a woman can do.
That’s why we are writing this article to see the whole picture of female diversity.
We also get a lot of questions in our Her Way inbox that go like this: “Among all types of girls, which type do guys usually go for?”, “Is my type someone’s epitome of a perfect girlfriend?”, “Why do men fall for a certain type?” etc.
As we keep on talking with our readers, new questions start to surface, like are they are interested in the personality traits, qualities, goals and social skills that females possess.
Whether you are one of those readers or you stumbled on this article out of curiosity, we are here to give you answers.
Keep on reading and see if you feel like you belong to a certain type of girls:
1. Forever single
Most girls hate their singledom. They are scared they will end up alone and it’s one of their worst nightmares.
She is not one of those girls—she has embraced her single life to the fullest, with all its ups and downs.
She learned with every piece of her once broken heart that being single beats being in a crappy relationship any day.
She reinvented herself, she found ways to make life better and more interesting, she discovered the importance of self-love.
She put her life back together brick by brick and she isn’t about to let anyone wreck it that easily.
Loneliness won’t make her enter a relationship just for the sake of being in one. She knows that feeling is temporary, it will pass.
She will be in a relationship when being with somebody feels right and not a moment sooner.
She would never trade her peace for somebody’s low efforts and half-love.
She would never waste time on a player who has one foot out the door at all times.
Only a man worthy of her love will break the walls she has built so carefully.
Only a man who is ready to be all in and to whom commitment isn’t an issue will be blessed with her love.
He won’t even be aware of how lucky he will be because a girl who has been single for a large gap of time makes the best girlfriend.
2. Sarcastic girl
This is not a girl who is everybody’s taste for one simple reason—not everyone can understand her.
On the other hand, those who speak sarcasm or at least get it simply adore her.
She adds that cynical amount of fun to their lives.
With her, everything is susceptible to a joke, she has no boundaries and she will make fun of you for the pure fact that she loves you.
She doesn’t have time for bullshit and she will give it to you straight. She is one of the most honest people you will ever have the pleasure to meet.
She is like a breath of fresh air among all that is fake.
She is basically every guy’s dream, she is independent and she has a lot going on in her life.
She lets a man be exactly who he is and she is guaranteed to make him laugh. She doesn’t nag unless it’s inevitable and necessary.
She keeps her cool and tries to look at every situation rationally. She has a habit of putting herself in the shoes of the man she loves.
On the other hand, she is not so forgiving toward everybody else. Fool her once, shame on you and you won’t get a second chance to do that.
She has a huge heart underneath that badass front but not everyone can see that. She doesn’t let people in so easily.
She has to trust them enough to let her guard down but once she does that, she loves like no other.
3. An empath
A girl who is gifted with empathy is really someone to hold on to. She is selfless, caring and compassionate.
She is able to relate to other people’s feelings so she is happy for their happiness and compassionate in their sadness.
The ugly side of it is that she feels everything so deeply that it overwhelms and drains her.
She needs to be reminded that it’s OK if she takes care of her emotions too.
You see, toxic people leech off empaths because they have so much to give and once they are done, empaths need a lot of time to heal and stand on their own two feet again.
A girl who is an empath needs a partner who is more like her, who will see how precious she is and appreciate all that she is doing.
She is used to going the extra mile and making all the efforts and it would be nice if she had somebody who would meet her somewhere in the middle and reciprocate.
She needs someone who will understand where she is coming from and remind her that taking care of herself is not selfish, it’s necessary and highly recommended.
4. An introverted girl
A lot of people won’t even bother to understand the amazingness of an introverted girl.
They will label her as odd and be on their way as they have no clue what kind of a gem is hidden underneath that shy and silent exterior.
She doesn’t open up to just anybody. Being around too many people drains her energy and being among the toxic ones speeds up that process.
That’s when she needs some time alone to recharge, she won’t even answer texts or phone calls if she feels the need to do so.
She has a habit of spacing out when she feels overwhelmed, so she is physically with you but mentally she is on a whole different planet.
She has her own version of fun which doesn’t necessarily include big groups of people or clubbing.
She likes things that are more casual, private and laid-back.
She is a bookworm and a movie enthusiast and anytime she wants an escape, you will know where to find her.
She is a loyal partner and she is always sure about what she feels and how deeply because she has spent a ridiculously long amount of time thinking about that.
When she is in love with someone, she has eyes only for him and all the other guys interested in her are not important anymore.
Her partner is guaranteed a drama-free relationship as she doesn’t believe that fighting, yelling or throwing things around will solve anything.
She prefers to talk things through and she is generally more comfortable with that.
5. An extroverted girl
She is the total opposite of an introverted girl. She is extremely outgoing, she loves crowds, socializing, crowded concerts and clubbing.
She is the life and soul of any party and she doesn’t mind being in the spotlight.
She is talkative, friendly and hanging out with people is what fills her with energy.
People like to spend time with her because she is open and honest, they feel like she is giving them a free pass to get to know her without any complications.
One of the downsides to being an extrovert is that she doesn’t know how to be alone, so more often than not she stays in a relationship, even though she knows that the best thing she can do is leave.
She feels isolated if she is not among other people and she has a habit of acting before thinking things through.
It’s important to mention that the levels of being an introvert or an extrovert can vary.
And there is no better or worse between these types of girls, they are both great but simply different.
6. A girl with a gypsy soul
She is like nobody you ever met. She is a combination of different types of girls yet she is unique in her existence.
She never left anybody indifferent; some adore her, some hate her and the best thing about it is that she couldn’t care less.
A girl with a gypsy soul has the biggest heart—unfortunately, that heart was broken.
Fortunately, she turned her pain into her strength and her heart is even stronger now.
She believes in people until they prove her wrong. She always chooses to see the best in them.
What she can’t see is their toxicity; at first glance, she always makes that leap of faith and if they do her wrong, it’s on their soul, hers is safe.
She is grateful for all the lessons in life, no matter how hard they were. Yet she doesn’t reflect on the past so much.
She lives for now and tries to make the best of every day.
She is fun to be around, she is a people person, a great listener and a loyal friend.
She enjoys music, hanging out, nature and every ray of sunshine. She has a lust for life like you’ve never seen before.
7. Modern day hippie girl
Interesting is a mild description for this girl, as she is the level above interesting.
She lives by her own rules and she doesn’t care what anybody has to say about it.
She learned a long time ago that trying to make everybody happy is impossible so she works on making herself happy.
She is highly opinionated, especially when it comes to human rights, feminism and politics.
She is not afraid to speak her, mind no matter the cost.
Wanderlust is incorporated in her DNA and she hopes she can travel the world and see all its amazing parts.
She is humble and she doesn’t care much about materialistic things. She is always happy no matter what her bank account has to say on the matter.
The modern day hippie girl is the embodiment of love.
She even loves the people who weren’t always fair toward her and hurt her, she just doesn’t need them in her life anymore.
When she falls for someone, she falls hard.
She is all in and ready to work on the relationship; she will give more, love more and she spoils the person she is with.
All she needs in return is to feel accepted just the way she is, respected and loved.
An Alpha woman is first and foremost the strongest and most independent woman you will ever come across.
She is a born leader. She is someone with the guts to speak up and demand to be treated right.
Don’t let all that is said fool you into thinking that she doesn’t need anyone in her life.
An Alpha woman would love to have a man in her life who is her equal, her partner and her soulmate.
Underneath her tough exterior beats a soft heart.
She is cautious with her love and she pays attention to whom she gives it to but once you win her over, she is the most devoted and loving partner, friend or family member anyone could ask for.
She has mastered flirting to a T. She is interesting and fun to be with and she has her looks going for her as well.
She works her charms and she knows exactly what to say and when to say it to make any guy feel wanted.
She can handle players with ease because she is the coach when it comes to the game of love.
She always lets men make more effort and she has all of them wrapped around her little finger.
She has expectations that are simply too high.
Until she realizes that no one can match up to her ideals and that she has to be realistic and appreciative of that one good man in her life, she will not be happy in love.
One of her biggest problems is that she believes that there is always someone out there who is better suited for her and she is never satisfied with her partner.
She doesn’t stay tied down in a relationship for long and she always has another man waiting as her backup plan.
10. Miss smarty pants
She has an opinion about any topic you tap into.
Her brain is full of information and there is no area she doesn’t know at least the basics about.
Fashion is not her number one priority; she is all dressed up when the occasion demands it, otherwise she likes comfortable and baggy clothes.
Her smartness has a way of standing in her way of love.
She used to spend so much time wrapped up in studying, reading books and informing herself about various topics that she neglected her people skills.
A lot of people label her as awkward; because of that, what they fail to see is that she is one of a kind and she doesn’t fit into molds.
She needs a man who will match her intelligence and accept her the way she is.
11. Wife material
She is gentle and kind but at the same time, she is not someone a man can mess around with.
She has her priorities straightened out and she wants a stable relationship that can evolve into marriage.
She is someone almost any man can imagine having kids with.
She is reliable, a good friend and a great listener. She loves to plan ahead even though she is well aware that not everything goes as planned.
She couldn’t care less about what other people have to say, she has her own life and her own rules.
She doesn’t mind doing things for the man she loves but she wants him to meet her halfway.
She is big on forgiveness but she has her boundaries and she is not afraid to tell her significant other when he crosses the line and does something she doesn’t approve of.
If a guy isn’t serious about this girl, he should never let her meet his friends and family because they will fall in love with her instantly.
She truly is a keeper and everyone sees it; let’s just hope that the man of her dreams sees it too and doesn’t take her for granted.
This is one of the types of girls which is pretty much self-explanatory. She is up to date and follows the latest fashion trends.
Her Instagram and Facebook feeds are filled with fashion influencers, make-up tutorials and online shopping pages.
She tries to look her best at every given moment and there is hardly any chance you will catch her looking like a slob if you happen to bump into her.
Her looks are one of her greatest assets and one of the first things people notice about her.
The bad side is that she might look superficial and self-absorbed which doesn’t have to be the truth.
No one should be judged based on their looks alone.
She wants a guy with a fashion sense of his own.
Someone who is filled with confidence and lets her be herself without any, “You look better without make-up,” phrases and the, “Do you really need one more pair of shoes?” monologues.
13. Miss chatty
This girl loves to talk and she basically never stops.
She is open, outgoing and she has a sparkly personality and she always has everyone’s best intentions at heart.
Her only problem is that she doesn’t know when to shut up.
She might come off as self-absorbed because a lot of her monologues are about her but that couldn’t be further from the truth.
In order to be more successful at work and in relationships, she has to improve her listening skills and to allow other people to share their opinions and share things with her.
The perfect match for her would be a shy guy.
She could help him get out of his shell and open up a bit and she could practice talking less and listening more to what he has to say.
Needless to say, she will be more dominant but the right type of guy won’t mind it at all, what’s more he will welcome it.
14. A lady
Everything she does or says is filled with femininity so powerful that it is captivating.
Everything about her style is romantic; with airy fabrics, lace, pastel colors, her skirts and dresses are just a part of what makes her look like a delicate flower but at the same time very flirty.
Most men really like a girl with feminine traits. They have an inner desire to protect her and make her feel safe.
Her sense of compassion is admirable and when she listens, she really listens and understands.
She is the greatest supporter and the happiness of others makes her happy.
As for her love life, she wishes old-school dating habits could become modern again because she is definitely not into casual hookups and one-night stands.
She wants to be courted, she wants someone who will make actual efforts to be in her life.
One of her biggest wishes is to be stronger at times and handle things on her own.
What she fails to see is that she is already doing so, she just doesn’t give herself enough credit.
There is one thing she needs to change ASAP.
She needs to stop being so mild and forgiving and ditch the toxic people from her life, as they are using her big time.
15. An adventurous girl
There is no room for boredom once you are by her side. She always has some new ideas to chase and some new dreams to fulfill.
She loves to travel and meet new people. She hasn’t been everywhere but it’s in her plans and she brings back interesting stories from every trip.
This type of girl usually tries to combine two of her passions together—sport and nature.
So she will do things that make her soul smile, like mountain climbing, swimming, paragliding, hiking, etc.
She needs a man who shares her sense of adventure, who supports her and loves in a way that makes her feel free and doesn’t try to tie her down.
She is one of the most loyal and devoted women out there but she needs her own space from time to time.
Someone jealous and controlling won’t stay in her life for long.
16. A go-getter girl
Once she sets her mind to something, there is no stopping her. She is goal-oriented, driven, ambitious and passionate.
She is the ultimate Alpha female and she loves to be in charge when it comes to both work and relationships.
She works hard and she should really find some time for herself, to recharge and unwind, otherwise she will burn out.
She is always working and attending to other people’s needs because they are used to her taking care of them.
That is why she tends to forget that she needs to take care of herself too and she needs someone to lean on every now and then.
The ideal man for her is someone who doesn’t mind being bossed around every now and then.
She will encourage the man she loves to dream bigger and try harder.
She can’t stand lowlifes and slackers who don’t have even one ambitious bone attached to them.
She is known to be too hard on herself and too hard on others, which can often be an impediment to her love life.
All she needs to do to be truly happy is take it easy once in a while and stop expecting perfection from herself and from others.
Sometimes there is some beauty in flaws and mistakes; if nothing else, you get a funny and interesting story out of them, as perfection can be sterile and boring.
17. An insecure type of girl
She is amazing but she is totally unaware of that fact. She is beautiful but that’s not what she sees in the mirror.
She is intelligent but always too shy to speak up and show what she knows.
She likes to play it safe without taking any risks, which makes her stuck in her comfort zone. Her lack of confidence reflects on her career and love relationships.
She is the best friend anyone could ask for, she just needs to make sure that she is not taken for granted.
She is genuinely a good person but unfortunately, a lot of people take advantage of that and exploit it.
She has a sensitive soul and her feelings get hurt easily.
She is just too good for this world and that’s exactly why she needs to toughen up and face her fears and insecurities.
It will be a long process but if she really wants change, she has to walk toward it as nobody else can do it for her.
She is not as helpless as it might seem and she is much stronger than she gives herself credit.
She just has to work on regaining her confidence and she will turn her luck and life around.
18. A comparer
This is one of the types of girls who is the hardest to admit to yourself that you are a part of.
There is no girl on this planet who wants to admit that she is envious of others.
Although it’s not an admirable type, it’s still quite normal. It’s a part of someone’s nature and part of being human.
“What does she have that I don’t?” , “She has a better job than me, she must have been in a lot of beds to get there?” , “She is getting married and I’m single, how did this happen?” , etc.
This type of girl is always comparing her life to those of others around her. She thinks that other people have it better and that she is just out of luck.
The truth is we create our own luck and if she would just stop comparing and redirect her attention to her own life it would be a whole lot better.
If she stopped wasting time getting caught up in all the bad things happening to her and started to count her own blessings, she would see that her life is full of them, she just doesn’t know how to appreciate them.
19. A clingy girl
She might act all cool and laid-back in the first stages of a relationship but as things progress and the relationship become more serious, her possessive nature and her suppressed jealousy will surface.
She will want to spend every waking moment with the man she loves and when she is not with him, she will want to know his whereabouts.
She will expect texts 24/7 and a lot of attention.
This kind of behavior can easily become overbearing if you ask 99% of the male population, that’s why her relationships don’t last long.
She is basically a good girl, loyal and loving, she just needs to take it down a notch.
She has to realize that the world doesn’t revolve around that other person.
She needs to have a life of her own, her own interests, social relations and goals, otherwise she will suffocate the other person with neediness.
20. Single mom
It’s a bit odd to categorize a single mom under types of girls because she is a woman in the whole sense of that word.
Still, this list would be pointless without her.
She has been through a lot but the love for her child was always greater than all the obstacles in front of her.
She is a lioness protecting her cub. She is a woman who has been broken and bent but who is still standing tall.
She is an example of strength and endurance. She is the epitome of inside and outside beauty.
She won’t go for the players, layers and cheats of this world because she knows that her pain will bring her child pain.
Only a real man can win the heart of a single mom.
He has to be ready for a committed relationship, honest and loyal and one day when she is ready to introduce him into her child’s life, he has to love her child as if they were part of him.
We listed 20 different types of girls but there are surely more because the amazingness of being a girl is something that is not easily put into words.
