If you have been out in the dating world for any period of time, you have likely had your share of disappointments while trying to get Mr. Wonderful.
As much as you want to take comfort in the fact others have been having the same trouble for generations, it still doesn’t help all that much.
Regardless of how hard you are trying, there are three basic things that will help you land the man of your dreams – and once you have them down, you will probably feel the weight of the world come off your shoulders.
You are probably tired of striking out, but follow these steps before you give up altogether:
Develop a Picture of This Man
Sure, you are probably thinking of Brad Pitt or Channing Tatum, but that’s not really the way to go.
Yes, they are easy on the eyes, yet looks are an incredibly superficial way of tracking down Mr. Wonderful – they give no real clues as to who he is on the inside and that’s what makes a man great.
What you want to do, then, is set aside some time to figure out the different traits you want this man to have. Is he athletic? Can he recite poetry? Does he enjoy wine as opposed to beer? It may seem like an odd thing to do, but this “shopping list” helps you focus.
Figure Out What You Have to Offer
Though you might be tempted to spend all your time concentrating on what he will bring to your relationship, you will have to do some work on you, too.
Write down what it is you think he will love about you – your quirky sense of humor, your skill in the kitchen, etc. – and keep those items as a list to boost your energy when you find yourself struggling to keep up the search.
If you want to go a bit further, scribble down some thoughts on the person you would like to be. Do you find yourself wanting to be more adventurous? Are you eager to build a business but have yet to find the courage?
These are ways Mr. Wonderful can encourage you and, once you know them yourself, it is more likely he will be able to provide that kind of support.
Get to Work Finding Him
There’s no use doing all the heavy lifting of determining what you want him to be like and what you bring to the table if you are just going to sit at home and hope he knocks on your door.
You have to get out there! The good thing is, after you have made your lists, you have a better idea of what your ideal man’s interests are and where he hangs out.
If you think he’s the type to hit the gym before work, then it’s probably a good idea that you are there, as well. Is he likely to unwind at an out-of-the-way Italian restaurant? Might want to have dinner in one from time to time.
Even if you don’t go to all these places, you can at least describe Mr. Wonderful to your family and friends. Once they understand what you are looking for, you might find out they have known him all along!
