~TIPS TO FINDING MR. RIGHT~

As Valentine’s Day approaches, I thought I would share some tips I found while purging through some old newspaper articles, especially for the gals.  Keep these tidbits in mind when you meet or begin dating your guys.  These tips, adapted from an old newspaper article, were sent in to the Ann Landers advice column, and written to a daughter from her parents:

  • You will probably find Mr. Right in a grocery store, at church, or through a friend, not bar. 
  • If he is married, seperated, or his wife “doesn’t understand him” that spells T-R-O-U-B-L-E. It might as well be plastered on his forehead. 
  • If he tries to borrow money from you, or tries to move in, be careful. He may a con artist.
  • If his family doesn’t like him and avoids him, maybe you should too. They may know something you don’t.
  • Check out his car to see if it is clean, serviceable, and insured.
  • If he has children, decide now if you want to marry them too, because that is the way it will be. Be aware that they are a direct link to the ex-spouse.
  • You don’t need a man to complete you. You choose the man—-don’t let him choose you. Be selective. 
  •  No one has the power to make you happier than the right person, or more miserable than the wrong one.
  • Find someone who shares the same kind of humor as you, and who makes you laugh. It will make the good times better and the bad times less difficult.
  • If you want several children and plan to stay@ home and raise them, choose a man whose skills and education will put him in a high salary category.
  • If you want a career, don’t marry a man who hates his job. He will resent the time and attention you give yours. 
  • Two red flags:  Does he have a short fuse or a hot temper? Is he hung up on his mother? These are 2 negatives that inevitably get worse after marriage. Both can be disastrous.
  • Don’t get married(or stay in a bad relationship) because you are afraid to be alone. No woman is more alone than one whose husband or significant other pays no attention to her.
  • No matter how wonderful his other qualities may be, do not marry a man who has threatened , humiliated, or hit you.  In fact, don’t go out with him a second time. Such a man is hazardous to your emotional and physical health and should be avoided.
  • Pay attention to how he treats his mother, and to how his father treats his mother. Chances are good that he will treat you the same way.

Happy Valentine’s Day!!

    Great tips! I would definitely give this advice: “If you want several children and plan to stay@ home and raise them, choose a man whose skills and education will put him in a high salary category.”

    Woah, I almost couldn’t recognize your blog now. It has changed dramatically. Looks really good!

    anyway, even though I don’t believe in the concept of Mr. right, these tips really helps women to find higher quality men.

    I especially think that the “You don’t need a man to complete you. You choose the man—-don’t let him choose you. Be selective.” point is the most important one.
