Mr. Next or Mr. Right? Top 5 Signs
Love

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.
