Being MRS Right
In nightclubs, at the gym or at her best friend's wedding, almost every single girl out there is looking for Mr Right. For those of you struggling to find the man of your dreams we have only one piece of advice: be Mrs Right. Gather round all you single ladies to find out more.
Looking for love? Start with yourself
With a bit of plotting and planning and a dash of daring there is a lot that you can do to find the man of your dreams. Yes, there are tried and tested formulas for finding love (grab a pen and paper because we are going to share some of them with you at the end of this article). The reality is, however, that you will not catch and hold on to the man that you want to spend the rest of your life if you are not leading a happy, well-balanced life.
Think of it this way. Would you settle down with the man who spends 12 hours a day and every weekend at the office? Or with the man who has a drinking problem? Or how about that guy, the one who cannot hold down a job for more than 6 months but always has big plans for starting his own business and striking it rich? Your answer is probably no.
Now shine the light on yourself. Are you the girl that any sensible man would want to spend his life with? Have you found a work-life balance? Do you have hobbies and good friends? Have you dealt with your issues and learnt to be content in a crazy world?
Why are these things important? Because they matter to guys looking for partners. And because being happy makes you confident and being confident and comfortable in your own skin makes you beautiful.
Now don't get us wrong. Nobody expects you to be Little Miss Sunshine all the time. What we do expect is a measure of sanity and contentment, some progress down the road of life. And of course a little passion and enthusiasm.
So, if you are nursing yet another broken heart or facing another Friday night alone then use that time to do a little self reflection and plan for the future.
Every girl needs a plan: finding Mr Right
According to the experts, finding Mr Right starts with figuring out exactly who he is. Put pen to paper and detail his personality traits, his likes and dislikes, the type of job he should have and even what he should look like. If you can't get that specific on what you do want, rule out the deal-breaker characteristics in your perfect man. Can you not live with a smoker? Is alcohol a turn off? Once you've done that, turn to friends and family for input they probably have some good ideas about what type of man you should be looking for.
Once you know who you are looking for you can work out where you will be more likely to find him. Will it be at a rugby match or on the golf course? At an antiques fair or a Harley Davidson club meet? Should you enrol in cooking or kung fu classes? Remember that while this is not an exact science it is about looking for love in the right places!
Now that you have some idea where you should be heading over the weekend you need to get out there and meet as many people as possible. This means sliding off the couch and doing whatever you need to do to feel good about yourself, be it a new hair style or even some new clothes and make-up.
Once you have hit the ground running remember that finding love takes time and you might have to deal with a few setbacks along the way. Above all remember that even Mr Right is not perfect just like Mrs Right!
"When you stop trying to find the right man and start becoming the right woman, the right man will find his way to you."
