You Share Secrets with Him
Is he someone that you can talk to about anyone? A true partner will be someone that you tell your deepest secrets to. He’ll be the person that you confide in. If you don’t feel comfortable doing that – and don’t think you can trust enough to – he’s probably not the right person to spend the rest of your life with.
We all like to be around people when we’ve had a great day but not on the worst days of our lives. Has he been there when you’ve really needed a shoulder to cry on? Has he seen you at the worst moments? The right man for you won’t judge you during these times but will be there to support you, help you through them and find ways to help solve a problem.
Is he a man who loves watching the cartoons on a Saturday morning? Does he still live with his mom? All men have something embarrassing about them but if you can accept and respect them, it’s a sign that he’s the right man for you. The same applies the opposite way around. If he can accept your tastes and likes then he could be Mr. Right.
Think about where you want to be in five or ten years. Is there a space for him? Even if you’re career driven, there has to be a space for him somewhere in your life otherwise it simply won’t work. Be honest with yourself to determine if he’s Mr. Right and not Mr. Right Now.
No two people have the exact same views. You may think the current Prime Minister is making a mess of the country but he things he’s doing a great job. Whatever the disagreements, you need to be able to work through them. You could agree to disagree on personal views or decide to work on a compromise for other areas of your life; just be willing to work through them.
You can be Silent
You won’t talk to your partner for every minute of the rest of your lives together. You need to find someone that you can be silent around and it isn’t awkward. If it’s uncomfortable and you need to fill the silence, what will you do 20 years down the line?
Mr. Right will be someone you can be yourself around. You won’t need to put on a show, constantly dress up or try to entertain. The right man will accept you for who you are and encourage you to be yourself.
