Mr. Next or Mr. Right? Top 5 Signs

Think your Mr. Next has the potential to be Mr. Right? Before you leap without looking, take an honest inventory of who you’re dating. Before you upgrade Mr. Next to Mr. Right status, you’ll want to ensure you’re reading his signals correctly. See how many of the following 5 essential Mr. Right traits your Mr. Next possesses. 

Quality #1: He Listens to You

The best way to know if Mr. Next is interested in (and worthy of) being a candidate for Mr. Right? He listens to you. You’ll know he’s listening when he shows genuine concern, consistently remembers things you’ve told him (your birthday, favorite food, best friend’s name, etc.), and offers emotional support in honest and thoughtful ways. If your current Mr. Next exhibits the signs of a thoughtful listener, he’s in the running to become Mr. Right.

Quality #2: You Share An Effortless Ease

We’ve all been in those relationships that take W-O-R-K (and suck the life force out of us in the process). When a relationship works on its own, it feels effortless, easy, and fluid. You don’t have to force anything, forgive anyone, or turn a blind eye to red flags or gut-twisters. Instead, you and Mr. Next communicate and collaborate with comfort, compatibility, and undeniable chemistry. If and when you experience this kind of interaction with Mr. Next, you may be on to something really special.

Don't Let Money Put A Tax On Your Relationship

By

Growing up, my parents argued about money constantly. Having been raised by a single mother in extreme poverty, my father worried there was never enough. Having grown up somewhat entitled, my mother believed that as long as there were checks left in the checkbook, she had spending power. And while my family was firmly middle class, many of my childhood memories ... Read more

By

In 2004, I launched The Breakup Chronicles because I had just had my heart smashed to smithereens for the umpteenth time and needed to figure out why I was getting love so wrong, so consistently. The common denominator was most definitely me. In writing about some of my key relationships, I needed to figure out what I did wrong, how I contributed to the demise ... Read more
