does mr.right existPage 4 of 4    (1, 2, 3, 4)
I have to admit I thought it was a bit hilarious for a 20 year old woman to be complaining that despite all of her "perfection" she cant find a man who measures up to her breathtaking levels of princessery

Gee whizz, who'd have thunked it eh?

I think you need to become aware of your own flaws really. Maybe then you will have realistic expectations in partners rather than seeking a level of pefection you dont match yourself

Looks isnt everything honey. You say you are fussy. Do you want a fussy man? Its easy to point the finger at others and not see the other fingers pointing back at us. Remember you cant change others only yourself. Take a peak inside of you and see what you find. Its ok to have standards but are you putting yourself on a pedestal? We all have our faults and we dont walk on water.

I couldn't have said this better.

Very true, and this myth is what causes misery for both guys and girls. But even if a "mr.right" did exist then they would probably not view him as such. It's unfortunate how true the Inuit story about Sedna is. (In the general picture and obviously ignoring the supernatural elements in the Inuit Story)

My Mr. Right may not be your Mr. Right....
what we all think is the perfect partner is totally subjective to the individual.

But one thing that we all have in common......is if we repeatedly end up with
Mr./Mrs. Wrong...over and over again........
the common denominator is always "ourself"
So if you keep picking "nobs".....then find out why you keep picking those types of men.

I like to think Mr. Right does indeed exist. I was lucky enough to meet someone who is a good candidate for that title. At the very least, he's Mr. Pretty Darn Close, and that is more than good enough for me right now.

if you are going to live with him for the sake of not wanting to be alone than you are in love for the wrong reasons..whatever the right ones are i don't know though :P. anyways, don't be too serious at your age, but it doesn't mean you have to get rid of your boyfriend if you feel or think that you two are very serious.

from my experience: when i was 20 i had an amazing relationship with someone from my class in college, and with amazing i mean that the relationship itself was very known and praised by students. however we chose to live together and that was a huge mistake and the whole thing blew up. so i learned that at such a young age you have to figure out things in your life without being tied to responsibilities that require both of your attention, meaning that you need to have space for yourself.

that said, i advice that when you live together with him you both seek your own time where you can simply forget each other and really have your own time. especially for you, because you need to remind to enjoy having time with yourself just as much as you would enjoy having time with your boyfriend.

As I turn forty, I had lunch with my mom. She asked me if I was dating, I said no.

She told me to take off my glasses and told me to now find a woman (I have poor eye sight) because my standards were too high.

She told me there is no Miss Right, just Miss Right Enough.

You are only 20 years old, you have your whole life ahead of you! I was a single parent myself. I suggest you concentrate on raising your son for now, a relationship shouldn't be a priority in your life. You'll accidently meet Mr. Right when you least expect it, at the park, at a swimming class or while participating in other activities w/your son.
