Mr Right vs Mr Right Now

There are times in our lives where we just want Mr Right now.


We all want Mr Right but sometimes we just need Mr Right Now. Mr Right is more dependable, reliable and listens to what you have to say. Mr Right Now is more about initial attraction. He smells good, dresses well and has an incredible presence about them.

There are times in our lives where we just want Mr Right now. In some cases, we are constantly on the lookout for this man. He is the sort of man you are instantly attracted to. They might look gorgeous, well dressed, smell incredible and have a presence about them. Sometimes, you find yourself a bit tongue tied and nervous in their company.

These men might be picked up at bars, clubs, parties and the instant gratification of being with them can feel amazing.

Then there is Mr Right. He is the man who you would have perhaps more in common with, dependable, reliable and listens to what you have to say. He is interested in you, attentive and focused. He may or may not have a fabulous job, career but that doesn't matter as you are comfortable with him. Often, initial attraction may not be there.

But instant attraction isn't always a good marker for whether it will be a good relationship. Mr Right now will satisfy immediate urges but is he the one you want to spend the rest of your life with? Is Mr Right now a long term option>

We should remember that attraction can grow and develop over time so Mr Right should not be overlooked for Mr Right now, especially if you are looking for a long term relationship, something lasting. Mr Right now may look good but sometimes this intense attraction can make us overlook qualities they may have that are perhaps not ones we would look for. They might be selfish, possibly self-centered and not really be "that into you". They may be more concerned with themselves than trying to make you happy. So why are we blinded by it and continue to seek them out?

We all look for different attributes in men from time to time and I believe it just depends on what we want at different stages of life. There is nothing wrong with Mr Right now if that is what you truly want but Mr Right is a longer term option and could pass you by while you are still looking out for Mr Right now.
