Can’t find Mr. Right? Compromise, don’t settle.
Another example is a woman who grew up with parents who always struggled to make ends meet, may instinctively be drawn to a man who possesses all the attributes of a good provider.
She is attracted to this type of man although she is fully aware that like herself, today’s woman is capable of providing for herself and family.
So instead of clinging to your lifelong fantasies and holding out for yesterday’s Mr. Right, change your focus to include men who can compliment your life as it is today.
3. Be flexible in your dating choices.
Always keep an open mind. Not everyone will be a perfect match, so don’t eliminate a prospect because at first glance he does not meet your requirements.
Get to know him better and allow nature to take its course. You may be pleasantly surprised.
He may impress you in so many other ways that not driving a Ferrari or looking like Arnold Swartzenegger no longer are important issues to you.
4. Let go of past prejudices
You may have eliminated a certain group or groups of men from your list of eligible prospects.
Perhaps you had an unpleasant experience with one or more of these groups and vowed never to date for example, another married or divorced man or even a musician.
That was when you thought finding Mr. Right would be easy.
But prejudging a man before you spend at least an evening with him may cause you to miss an opportunity of finding the one that’s right for you.
5. Look again at the people around you.
Overlooking the people around you is common when your primary focus is finding the perfect partner.
Most likely you may have already decided no one you know fits the picture.
Take a step backwards and look at the people you already know; for example guys you date casually.
Even though you have eliminated them as your possible Mr. Perfect, you may still maintain friendships with them.
Perhaps you share common interests or maybe one or more of them is in love with you but never got the chance to let you know.
It won’t hurt to open your mind once again to the possibilities, give them a second chance.
Sometimes our decision to be flexible can cause us to see things from a different perspective; and changing our outlook may open a floodgate of possibilities we never knew existed before.
