Is he Mr. Right?

Relationships are akin to searching for  the  perfect pair of shoes. One may look fancy when you see it, but you’re never going to know how good it’ll be until you take a walk together.

Often, a woman encounters  really nice men, but the chemistry isn’t there, or something just feels wrong about it.

Here are signs to help you see if he is the one for you:


One of the most important requirements of long-term love is communication. Does he tell you how he feels, and does he ask about your feelings?
Communicating with each other over the smallest of emotions can actually help both of you understand each other better and avoid misunderstandings that can lead to painful confrontations in the years to come. Many men aren’t so inclined to talk about their feelings that it would only frustrate you every time you try to understand what he’s thinking.


Men actually do know what their woman really wants. But some  do nothing about it. They take their girlfriends for granted, and pretend like they didn’t understand their girlfriend. How many times have we heard men say, “you should have told me what you really wanted in the first place!”
Avoid these men who act dumb and pretend like girls are confusing and don’t express their feelings.


You’ll know he is the one if he sees you for who you really are. All women know men are visual creatures, are drawn to appearances first and everything else later. But that’s no excuse
to be treated like an arm candy. Does he tell you that you look hot? Of course, he does.

But does he appreciate your other qualities? Does he see the real person within? A man who looks at you as a dumb, good looking woman will never ever see the real you or understand your capabilities. And when he looks at you only as  an arm candy, he’s never going to share his problems or ask for advice. And that’s never good for a long-term relationship.


When you’re in love, respect takes a whole new definition. When you’re in love, respect is all about making your partner feel good about themselves. A man who is in love respects the woman he loves.

If he’s the one, he treats you with respect and takes care of your needs. When you go out, he’s chivalrous and courteous to you. Does he pick a fight, order you around or snap at you when you’re with friends? If he really does respect you, he will pay more attention to you, your needs and feelings than any other woman’s. Alas, some men are eager to please other women, but don’t really care about their own girlfriend.

Tell him how you feel about this, but if his behavior doesn’t change, perhaps it’s time you change your man.



Men love their own guy time.  But hey, so do women! And it’s not just about hanging out with girl pals. This is especially true when both of you move in together. Does he get upset when you’re on the phone with your friends, or does he sulk when you go out with your own gang?

Being jealous is cute at first. But if he wants to be around you all the time, and stops you from having your own life, you need to tell him how you really feel.


Does he offer to help you out? Does he go out of his way to help you when you ask him? If he’s the one for you, your problems are his, and his problems are yours, too. That’s one of the things that make a relationship work, when you accept to share responsibility. And most men are really good at dodging their responsibilities. So how can he help you with yours?

A man who goes out of his way to help you out and share your responsibility sees you as a potential partner. And that’s the man you need in your life. (Source:
