    "What's your type?" means "Which do you prefer?" The question is often asked in regards to the opposite sex. For example: "Do you prefer blondes or brunettes? What's your type?"

    following question....

    1:
    But she asked me without giving me any reference in the beginning!!
    How can I make a reply?
    she just said "what's your type?"
    2:
    Is that impolite to ask a stranger?

    Re: following question....

    I would ask for an explanation. If somebody says "What's your type?" and you are not sure what they mean it is perfectly permissible to say, "I am not sure what you mean." I would ask her to explain. I am sure she wouldn't mind. In fact, I think that would be a very good idea, especially if the point is conversation. Example:
    • A: What's your type?
      B: What do you mean--what's my type?
      A: I mean what do you prefer: blondes, brunettes, or redheads?
      B: I just prefer a woman with a nice shape and a pretty smile.


    I don't know that it is an impolite question. That would depend on the circumstances. Presumably, you had been talking about something that made that question seem appropriate. Or perhaps the question was intended as a conversation starter.

    :)
