So often single women say they are looking for Mr. Right.  The man who will come into their life and make everyday seem like Christmas morning. Many of us spend hours wondering what he will be like, will he be handsome and charming.  Will he be the life of the party or the shy quiet type. Will he get along with your kids? But the one question we often overlook is perhaps the most important of all; will you be Ms. Right when you find him? So how do you prepare to be Ms. Right?

Don't hold onto unrealistic expectations;
Sure we would all love to end up with a prince, but remember there  is a little frog in everyone. The point, no one is perfect, don't expect perfection. More importantly don't let a great guy get away while you wait for Mr. perfect. He just does not exist.  

Let go of old baggage;
Once burned twice shy. Anyone over 18 has probably been hurt by love at some point.  And for the fab 40 and beyond set, it probably been more than once.  Don't live your life looking through the rearview mirror.  Let go of the past and live looking forward. If you are having real difficulty moving forward seek out professional help, a life coach or therapist can help you get on track to moving forward.  

Love yourself before you love someone else;
Self love is key to being able to love others. Take the time to appreciate yourself, all of your great points and flaws. Love yourself above all others.

    • Great article Laurie, I’ve been living in limbo for the last seven months. I thought I had found my prince but turned out to be a toad. I have done a lot of soul search and been seeing a therapist just to see if I was on the right path and come to find out there are several stages of grieving that you have to go through and I am on the right path to begin again. I don’t know if there is such a thing as a “Mr. Right or even a “Ms. Right“. I just want to be a ME Right. To live my best life I can live.

    • Yes great article Laurie!

      It took me a while to figure it out but I got it now! Unfortunately it took me until I was closer to 40 before I understood.

    • Laurie,  I enjoyed your article- great advice.  I think we often feel that we can overcome grief and loss by ourselves.  What we are missing is that if we would seek the help of a professional we could find that road to recovery and a better life is so much closer than we realize. I encourage everyone to work with a life coach or therapist when they are struggling with life’s challenges.
