Have a fulfilling life: You are looking for a guy that meets certain standards that you have set. This means you should be the kind of girl that such a guy would consider as his life partner. For example: It is hardly correct that you expect a man to be physically fit, but you are a slob in that department. A complete and well-balanced girl who has her life on the right tracks is more likely to find the man of her dreams.
Assess your looks: In the world of dating and in the process of finding the right partner, looks do have a role to play. Take a critical and realistic look at your appearance. Start working on improving the plus points you have with a realistic goal. We should all accept that none of us are perfect, but we can really work at making our looks work for us. While most men are not looking for Miss Perfect, physical appearance plays a big role in their search for the ideal mate.
Be clear about what you want in a man: Looking for Mr. Right can be an exercise in confusion. We may wish for an impossible combination of the perfect looks, the hottest body, immense wealth and absolutely sterling character. But this may not be actually realistic. You need to fix on what you are actually looking for in a man, in very clear terms to avoid disappointment.
Forgive past errors: You have to not only forgive yourself for any mistakes but you have to get over them. To forgive yourself for things that you now realize are stupid is vital for your overall well-being. Acknowledging past mistakes also ensures prevention of the same oversight in the future.
Discuss your ideal man with near and dear ones: Who knows you better than people who care about you? In fact sometimes they may know you better than you know yourself. Seek their guidance and they will throw light on things that you have never even considered. Do not be offended when they present you with a few blunt truths. They mean well and want the best for you.
Be open to unconventional options: In your search for the ideal life partner, do not overlook the one mode that has dominated our lives – the web. This may seem a little odd considering the talk about the pitfalls of seeking a special someone on the net. But when you think about it, the safety and efficacy of the web will actually depend on how you use it. Nowadays you may come across more and more couples who have successfully gotten together using the web as a medium.
Accept chances to meet new people: In your search for Mr.Right, do not overlook blind dates. We all admit that there is a certain negative vibe attached to going on a blind date. But think about it; can you rule out this option completely? You may be losing out on some really good options. Any apprehensions you may have can be overcome with a few steps.
Search in the right places: To find the right person, it is important to look in the right place. You are hardly likely to find an adventurous outdoor person in a convention for computer geeks. You need to go to places where your ideal man is more likely to hang out.
Embrace imperfections: The fact is that nobody is perfect, not even you! You may think otherwise but it simply is not possible to be absolutely perfect. The same way you should not look for a perfect guy, but a guy who is perfect for you. This means accepting a man with a few foibles of his own.
Wait for the right guy: It is very important that you keep your patience when you are looking for Mr. Right. It has rightly been said that haste makes for waste and you do not want that. These things happen at their own pace and you should just hang in there till it happens.
