Choosing Mr. Right: Don’t be Too Picky

Choosing Mr. Right: Don’t be Too Picky


One of your ultimate goals as a single woman is meeting and identifying Mr. Right. You may have to select from the frogs to meet your prince. However, make sure you are not putting Mr. Right on a pedestal in your mind before you meet him.


You could meet him and lose him because of your high standards.

Of course, you need to have standards. But they should be reasonable and not over the top.

Some of the unrealistic standards are…

  • He must be earning lots of money.
  • He must be tall and handsome.
  • He must drive an expensive car.
  • He must be working and have a good job.
  • He must be romantic and buy you flowers and chocolates.
  • He must wait on you and run around for you as you command.
  • He must own his own property

And the list goes on…

However, let’s be real. There is no perfect man out there. You’re not perfect either. On the other hand, I wouldn’t advise you to rush into a relationship and choose Mr. Right who turns out to be Mr. Wrong.

Use wisdom when making your decision about starting a relationship.

Pray about it when you meet him.

Look out for warning signs.

Meeting your soul mate is wonderful. It’s the first step towards marriage and your future together. That is why it’s important to get it right. Don’t be too picky and miss your chances when looking for Mr. Right.

If you feel you’ve met him, first, pray and speak to close family members and friends. They will give you useful advice, usually based on their experiences.

  1. Oh sorry Junie I copied your questions to answer them in order:

    Have you met Mr. Right?

    No still searching but God’s time is the best for me. I have made so many left turns am literally done

    How did you know he was the one?

    I haven’t met him, but when I do after all I’ve been through, I’ll feel it in my spirit and I’ll pray so much about it… we’ll do that together and it’s a first sign for me to know…

    Why do you think it’s not a good idea to be too picky when looking for Mr. Right?

    I don’t really know if I fully align with you about being too picky Junie… I’ll have literally given myself away so low or for the least pick, am getting too picky now although I will accept some compromising with myself if I find one and have to put him on a scale. So I’ve written a checklist which I continually update and pray over, let me tell my heavenly father and friend what I sincerely wish for, and then let me get any real close and count on him to help me out there you know…

    Thanks so much for writing and sharing this Junie

    • Marie, thanks for your comments.

      I know the feeling about doing so many left turns and feeling like you’re literally done.That’s why I decided to enjoy my single life and focus on getting closer to God and developing myself.

      I’ve been single for 10 years and although I haven’t been looking to meet Mr. Right, I did meet someone a couple of months ago. I wasn’t being picky in my expectations. However, this man had one thing and one thing only on his mind. He was like a dog on heat. I wasn’t prepared to jeopardize my faith for a moment or moments of pleasures, so I told him we didn’t have a future together. He clearly wasn’t my Mr Right.

      In terms of being picky, I agree that it should be within reason while still keeping our values intact. And yes, I agree it’s good to pray about what you want and trust that God will connect you.

      Have a good weekend, Marie.
