What women want. Apparently.

In what might be a handy aide memoire for all we confused chaps out there, TNS-Sofres has polled women on what they want.  Granted, it is French women, and those 20-29 (a bit young for a greybeard like me, but quand meme).

So, here goes:


Note less than a third opt for shopping as one of their top five activities, and going to the hairdresser, manicurist etc appeals to less than a quarter.

Self-image is a bit of a problem, in that none of the panel answered 'very beautiful' to the question, 'when you look in the mirror, how do you look most of the time?'  11% managed 'beautiful', 52% 'really not too bad', 31% 'not terrible', 3% 'ugly' and 3% shun mirrors all together.

I'm not going to blog the contents of P12 as it is a long way from being PG, but answers to impertinent questions on la vie amoureuse are there.  Given that 4% of pollees refused to answer the questions as to what they thought their contemporaries got up to, judge quite how SFW or otherwise it is.

Should a reade be seeking to employ a Frenchwoman, pay is the key thing (60%), followed by working environment (58%), followed by 'interesting work' (38%).  And only 35% will sacrifice their personal lives for business success.  So, not so many Faustettes out there.

Elsewhere, three cheers for the 24% who regard spending money on going out as the leading spending priority.  And 22% think that fashion is 'idiotic'.  Take that Coco Chanel.
