How many of you are looking for Mr.

Right?

How about Ms.

Right?

How many of you are playing the dating game right now – maybe casually, maybe seriously, perhaps somewhere in between – hoping that the next person you meet will be The One?2

Well, let me make a radical suggestion: stop it.

You need to ditch the entire idea of Mr.

Right or Ms.

Right.

Hear me out, I think some of these reasons are really compelling.

What do you think?

1. Who Says There's Only One Mr./Ms. Right?

black and white, film noir, emotion, film, People,

You change and grow and evolve throughout your life, which means that the person who's right for you now may not be right for you in five, ten, or twenty years.

2. It's True That a Watched Pot Never Boils

Meaning, you are far more likely to find love when you stop actively looking for it – maybe not always, but this seems to happen quite often.

3. The Idea of Picking Someone β€œright” is Too Much Pressure

person,

β€œRight” is subjective, after all, and it's hard to feel like you're gambling with your future every time you go on a date with a potential Mr.

or Ms.

Right.

4. Literally No One is or Will Ever Be Perfect

There's also this absolute fact – perfection is unattainable, not to mention undesirable for most people.

5. Mr./Ms. Right Probably Comes with Conditions

Since perfection is simply impossible, it makes sense that even when you meet the right person, her/his β€œrightness” will have a few conditions.

6. Searching for Someone Perfect Will Make You Feel Defeated

person, performance, art, musician, singing,

Again, there's no perfection, so searching for it will just bring you down and make you feel like you're doomed to be forever alone – and you're not, I promise (unless you choose to be, of course).

It's Also Pretty Demotivating for You and the People You Date
