5 tips to find the Perfect Man
Hello, lovely readers! I’m Mackenzie, and anyone reading Kismetology will know that I’ve been on my fair share of dates lately, all in an attempt to find the perfect man! It’s harder than you think, especially considering the fact that most men never grow up!
Here are my top tips for finding the perfect man!
1. Know what you want.
You can’t look for the perfect man if you don’t know what constitutes the perfect man! Sit down and have a think about it. What are you looking for? Does he have to have perfect teeth or nice hands? Hands are my personal deal breaker – if he doesn’t have nice hands then he can pack his bags! Do physical attributes matter as long as he is kind and caring? Does he need a good sense of humour? Does he have to like animals and be kind to small children? You have to know the answers to this kind of question, otherwise you’re stumbling around in the dark.
2. He doesn’t have to be perfect perfect!
No one is perfect. Not even us girls! While some things are absolute deal breakers, like rudeness and bad manners, surely some things can be overlooked? It doesn’t really matter if he has dark hair instead of blonde, does it? So what if he leaves the toilet seat up no matter how many times you tell him not to? Some things are worth compromising for! But only some things. If he crosses a line, don’t give him a second chance!
3. Don’t ignore flashing neon signs.
Does he smell bad? Is he looking scruffy? Ladies, if he hasn’t made an effort for your date, then he won’t make an effort ever. First dates are about first impressions, and if he doesn’t care what you think of him on a first date, try getting him to care about your relationship. It won’t work. He doesn’t need to look pristine or spend longer getting ready than I do, but a quick shave and a dab of cologne won’t go amiss!
Other flashing neon signs to look out for are: welly boots at the dinner table, the jangling of change as he lugs along a big bag of it to pay for dinner, and you may want to run a mile if he produces a porn film mid-meal! Oh yes, I have met my fair share of charmers recently!
4. Don’t be afraid to walk away.
If he’s not going to make the grade, don’t waste your time with him. Don’t be afraid to tell him “You’re no good. Next!” If you waste time with someone who clearly isn’t the one, you could miss the perfect man right under your nose.
5. Never give up.
The most important tip of all. Never, ever give up. Even when you meet men who make Freddy Krueger look attractive, men who think insulting you is acceptable date behaviour, and men who make you want to stay single forever.
Your ideal man is out there, and you will find him. You have to find him. Kismet, fate and destiny will bring you together eventually. And isn’t it true that the harder you look for something, the less likely you are to find it? So stop stressing, he’s out there, and maybe he’s looking for you just as much as you’re looking for him!
