A diva is the female version of a hustler. She has a high opinion of herself, expensive tastes, overly dramatic, temperamental and often rude. She is very particular about the class of people she associates with, shopping places and restaurants she dines. Since she has unrealistic expectations she tends to compare the cost of the gift to your love for her.

Be warned, you need to spend a fortune in order to please a woman with a diva personality.

Just like the conservative kind, a unique experience would be perfect for one with a geeky personality.
She is mostly from an affluent background. Her tastes are refined. She possesses polished mannerism and is selective to the kind of music she listens to.
