‘They should have dinner on the table for their man and make sure household chores are taken care of.’

Psychotherapist Claire believes in antiquated dating rituals, revealing she wishes to be courted in the same way as characters from period dramas like Downton Abbey or Bridgerton.

Considering herself the ‘anti-feminist’, she doesn’t believe in one night stands and waits six months before sleeping with a man – adding that she believes ‘women these days are easy’. 

She won’t kiss on the first date – but admits her attitude towards intimacy can make it tough to find the right partner.

When it comes to a first date, men should approach her house and knock on the door rather than texting to say they’ve arrived. 

She thinks men should always open the car door for her and must always pay on the date – even admitting she ‘cringes’ if she sees another woman paying at a restaurant or bar. 

While on a first date, Claire puts her suitors to the test by offering to buy the next round – but is horrified if they agree. 

In Claire’s opinion men should not swear and should do the majority of the driving – however insists on her partner filling up her car with petrol if she does get behind the wheel.

Claire’s high standards include being showered with flowers and constantly being surprised with romantic gestures. 

When she eventually becomes a mother, Claire does not expect to have to work but believes that manners are more important than wealth when it comes to finding herself a partner. 

Chivalry is so important to Claire that she even claimed to have dumped an ex professional footballer after two months together because he forgot to hold her hand while on a romantic getaway to Paris.
