He makes you swoon. He makes you laugh. He makes you feel safe and cared for. He is always, without exception, good to you… even when he is mad at you. And most importantly, you trust him 100% because he truly deserves it. This is Mr. Right. There is a passion between you that can’t be explained away as lust. You are friends but there is more, there’s this excitement that you just don’t have with every guy you know and that you haven’t had with the other guys you’ve dated. He is kind to you but he doesn’t let you walk all over him. He thinks of your needs along side his own and views them as being equally important. He only makes a compromise, or asks you to make one, when it is totally necessary, and strangely enough things rarely get to that point because you already so often see eye-to-eye. The three key ingredients in Mr. Right, the things that distinguish him from a really close Mr. Right Now, are simple: passion, trust and respect. There is a genuine respect in the way you treat each other and this is obvious to everybody who sees the two of you together. When you’ve found your Mr. Right not only will you know it but everybody who is close to you, the other people in your life who love you, they will know it too. And they’ll tell you. It is very easy for you to confuse any of the other Mr.’s we’ve listed above as your Mr. Right if you want to badly enough. We often see the biggest jerks through rose-colored lenses when we desperately want to be in love (hello again, Britney). But the other people in our lives are not as easily fooled. They see how a guy really treats you, if he really respects you, and if his love for you as professed is true or nothing but a smokescreen. If you feel a guy is Mr. Right you could be mistaken but if you think he’s the one and the people closest to you agree then… well, he’s a keeper! With a little skill and a lot of luck we’ll all make this catch some day!
