If girlfriend material were measured in fabric, you'd be single-ply cashmere, baby. "You're open to being in a relationship but don't define your self-worth by the guy you're dating," says Sheilagh Shusta-Hochberg, Ph.D., a clinical psychologist in New York City. "If it doesn't work out, you know you won't fall apart, because it's not like you dropped your entire social life for him."

Your laid-back vibe also keeps your bond balanced. "When your guy asserts his independence, like going out with his buddies for the night, you use it as an opportunity to go out and have fun. You also know it's okay to continue to have girlfriend brunches and the occasional flirty exchange with guy buddies," says Shusta-Hochberg. Additionally, you know when to shower a guy with the right amount of TLC (like treating him to a night out) and when to demand it for yourself (like taking more airtime at dinner). That give-and-take combo makes your relationships rock solid.

I'm a Killer Catch... says the incredibly single and man-less girl.
