adies, we are looking for those subtle clues that let us know right away if a guy is romantic, passionate, creative, intelligent… and more. So, it's time to stop checking out just his feet, hands, dance moves and car and add a 2011 accessory to the list: his cell phone. Cell phones can provide great insight into how simple or complicated a man truly

is these days. Now beware — there are a few phones out there that are misleading and provide little to no info on a potential new guy. Apple's iPhone, the Windows Phone and the BlackBerry all seem to be pretty universal in their appeal, but believe it or not, there are some brands that tip you off more about his ability to be a stud or a dud then any swivel of the hips can! Read on…

The creative guy
Looking for a man who will love all things artistic? This one knows all about the current trends in music, art and film, and even a bit about the underground scene. Mr. Creative is plugged into all the great new restaurants and clubs weeks before they gain local buzz. The phone of choice for this man is filled with his favorite music, entertainment apps and great city information, and it's all got to be quite simple for him to use, too, because he's too busy having fun to deal with a phone that is overly complicated.

The high profile/career-driven guy
With an eye for business and an appetite for the latest information to push his career, finances, workout and overall profile forward, this man needs a phone that is the best one out there technologically to help him do absolutely everything. He needs to be in touch with the office even when he is at the game, and he needs his new gadget to look as sleek as the designer suit or jeans that he's wearing. The high profile guy's game is all about image.

The passionate guy
This man will make you feel like there is no one else in the room, because Mr. Passionate is all about "the moment" and "the memory." You'll enjoy all of the special attention you receive from him throughout the day in the form of video messages, texts, and using it to play his favorite songs for you while cooking dinner. His phone is a "wooing machine" — in other words, a tool to get you to think of him (and only him) all day long.

The regular/family guy
Yearning for a normal guy who's sane, stable, and loves his family? There are no major personality swings with him — he really is just a regular guy. His phone screams, "I use it to call
This man knows in his heart that we are all here for a higher purpose.
people" — nothing more and nothing less. Oh sure, his phone may be filled with pictures of his nieces and nephews, his dog or great pictures from his last solo vacation with his guy friends. But he doesn't need a laptop in his pocket, just the ability to call those that mean the most to him. His phone is a necessity — not a statement piece.

The spiritual guy
This man knows in his heart that we are all here for a higher purpose. Mr. Spiritual never misses an opportunity to do something better for the community and the world at large. Even his phone screams health, wellness, sustainability and eco-consciousness. Don't be surprised to find that his phone is a recycled one built from old plastic bottles filled with apps that provide information on healthy living, tips for reducing your carbon footprint, ways to volunteer in the community and music that is intended for relaxation rather than getting the party started.

The player
This guy loves a relationship challenge! Mr. Player is a love-gamer, juggling many women until the right one is able to tame his bad-boy ways. It's not surprising, then, that his phone of choice will be all about getting the most out of the flashiest technology that's out there. A player is the app, game and accessory king. He wants to be able to impress any woman he encounters with the cost, style and adaptability of his phone. He can do it all and is often the man with the biggest display screen, best video quality and incredible sound on his phone. Mr. Player knows that he only has a few minutes to gain a woman's attention, and he needs all the phone goodies he can get at his fingertips to make the most of his time with you.
