People joke about how women are only interested in good looks, fat wallets and fast cars. Well, it turns out their crude humour mightn't be too far off the mark.
A new survey conducted by Sunshine.co.uk asked over 2,000 women between the ages of 18 and 34 what they thought to be the most desirable quality in a man.
89 per cent of all participants said that a caring personality was the number one thing they look for in a guy. That's all well and good, but don't think a fat wallet isn't a turn on – 75 per cent of women ranked financial security in second spot.
Good looks came in at number three, with three out of four women ranking sexiness a crucial aspect of choosing a partner. Other notable entries in the top 10 include a love of travelling, a cracking sense of humour and a high sex drive.
"I think this list of top 10 traits that female millennials look for in potential partners says a lot about where they are in their lives, with many prioritising travelling over starting a family," said Chris Clarkson, managing director of Sunshine.co.uk.
"That makes a lot of sense, as it's good to get travelling out of your system before settling down with little ones, who could restrict where you travel for a little while."
Before you get scared your taste might be a bit odd, check out the qualities that narrowly missed the top 10: cooking skills (32 per cent), TV/film/music (29 per cent), love of animals (21 per cent) and intelligence (18 per cent) rounds off the list.
