Choosing Mr. Right

Though we all seek to find Mr. Right, it is imperative to teach our teenage daughters that it not easy to do so and that no one is perfect. That is why we as parents are here to guide and give them support that they need from us. However, if you have a teenager who you think is dating the wrong person and they won’t listen to you, you may wish to seek help with online counseling.

Below are the top 7 pointers which we can give to them in choosing their Mr. Right:

  1. Have a fruitful life. The important thing is to be Ms./Mr. Right yourself. Looking for the right man will not going to change yourself into a better individual than what you are now. If you are a kind of lazy and is self-centered, probably finding a better and generous, working fellow will not change you in the long run.  If you are a little boring and a one-dimensional type of person, finding an intellectually more challenging man will not change who you are either. You should learn how to be more interesting, caring, kind, and unselfish first. Model yourself after women you admire.
  2. Know what you are looking for in a man. Here are some qualities to look for in a healthy relationship: Common values and the same culture, the ability to forgive, the ability to accept challenges and then confront them without any defensiveness, have the desire to raise children, and learn share common goals.
  3. Look in places where you would expect to find someone with the qualities you value. If you want someone who cares, look at the local soup kitchen and see who is volunteering on Saturday afternoons. If you want someone who is good with kids, look for a coach, a teacher, or a mentor. If you wish to look for a generous guy, then ask yourself about who is in the crowd and has a generous spirit. Who will share his own Pepsi with you even without asking for it? Who offers you their seat on the bus?
  4. Expect a human being, not someone perfect. No one is going to be everything you have ever dreamed of. Give the guy a break. You already know that you are not Ms. Perfect. He will make mistakes as well. Relax a bit and don’t so picky. Allow for human frailty. You may look beyond the physical attractiveness. Of course, you do not wish for a slob forever any more than he does, but he doesn’t have to be Mr. Hunk, either.
  5. relationshipTalk to your family and friends about the kind of man you want. Who better knows you and the things you need? Ask them about certain tips on what could be the type of guy they think you need and don’t be hurt or insulted when they will tell you what is true. They will probably know you better than you know about yourself. Their feedback could be invaluable.
  6. Evaluate your physical attractiveness. Not everyone here is like Ms. America. There won’t be anybody looks like every model in those glossy magazines. Everyone has something going for us, though. We just have to find out your best looks and features that accentuate it. Wear clothes that flatter your figure. Accept yourself for who you are, but don’t use that as an excuse to let yourself go, either. If you are obsessed about your features and get over the way you look, affecting the way you are, you may want to get help with online counseling. You can get more info on finding Mr. Right from
  7. Be patient. Rome was not built in a day. It may take some time to discover what appeals to you and why. You may make a few friends and even break a heart or two. You may get hurt. Keep at it. There are good men out there. You simply need to know where to look. If, however, you feel your relationship with Mr. Right is breaking down, you may want to contact a leading counseling firm like BetterHelp for advice.
