Is He Mr. Right?

Okay ladies, admit it: we all have our own version of Mr. Right. Whether he’s talk, dark and handsome or the rugged outdoorsy type, you just know that’s the guy for you. But does snagging that perfect catch mean you’ll live happily ever after? Your so-called Mr. Right might just be Mr. Right Now. So how can you tell which the difference?

Getting Physical

No doubt outward appearance is important, but if physical attraction is the main attraction, then your Mr. Right may end up being Mr. Right Now.

Do you spend more time between the sheets than anywhere else? If so, you two probably aren’t connecting on a deeper level. Baring your souls as well as your bodies happens in the world of Mr. Right.

Making Future Plans

As females, our genetic makeup dictates that we talk about upcoming plans and where the relationship is going. If he’s Mr. Right, he will have no trouble talking about future possibilities. Mr. Right Now on the other hand, will dodge the subject.

Also be on the lookout for verbal commitment—or lack thereof. If your significant other says things like, “We should live for the moment” or “Let’s just enjoy what we have right now,” he’s not really envisioning a future together.

Knowing Little Details

Does your man remember little personal details about you? Maybe he recalls that you like orchids or remembers that you’ll be away on business next month. When a guy pays attention to such things, it means he cares about you and what’s going on in your life. That’s definitely Mr. Right behavior.

Conversely, Mr. Right Now won’t invest as much time and effort in getting to know what’s important to you. He’s only focused on the here and now.

Seeing the Big Picture

Unfortunately many women fall in love with a man’s potential and don’t see the big picture.

Take a good look at your man and try to see the larger view in terms of his lifestyle. Is he pretty consistent and stable? Does he hold a steady job? Does he maintain good relationships with friends and family? Look for an overall pattern.

Mr. Right will have his act together (or seriously be working on it), while Mr. Right Now lives an erratic, roller coaster sort of lifestyle.

Keep your eyes open if you think you’ve found Mr. Right, make sure he truly is!
