London: The secret desires of men and women are very different if one doesn’t take into account ‘money’ as the objective, a new survey has revealed.

The survey of 3,000 people found that the fairer sex would first settle for the security and comfort of a second home in Italy and, not to forget, a giant rock on their finger.

Men, however, would ditch sentimentality and the trappings of home life to buy a top-of-the-range car, a castle, a space flight and tickets for the FA Cup final, reports the Daily Express.

As for what a woman would do if she won a multi-million-pound jackpot, the study by Euromillions revealed that their dream is a holiday home in Tuscany plus a diamond ring and necklace from Tiffany.

That’s not all. She would also splash out on a pair of 2,000 pounds Christian Louboutin or Jimmy Choo shoes.

As far as men are concerned, they want a penthouse apartment in New York, an Aston Martin Vantage 8 and an iPhone 5 – while opting for the playboy lifestyle by owning a private jet, yacht or vineyard, the survey said.

A spokesperson for EuroMillions said: “The two lists are fascinating – women seem to love the idea of owning designer fashion items but have also included a few things to make their homes more stylish.

“Men go straight for the transport and gadgets, wanting the very latest developments in technology and vehicles,” he added.
