So many women are trying to find Mr. Right. Even actress Jenna Fischer, who stars in the popular American series The Office, is looking for him. What does this guy have that so many women want?

In a word, everything. Mr. Right isn’t a real or particular person. It’s the name we give to that one special guy who is just perfect for you. He’s your ideal mate, with the right looks, the right personality, the right job, the right hobbies…Everything about him is just right.

If this guy sounds too good to be true, he may be. Finding Mr. Right isn’t easy. Jenna Fischer says you have to be 100% dedicated to looking for him. You shouldn’t date other guys who are just OK, because that could stop you from finding Mr. Right.

Have you found Mr. Right? What would your perfect guy or girl be like?

I hate to burst your bubble but Jenna Fischer has been married (again) for more than a year.  Maybe that old issue of Redbook you found in the garage shouldn’t be used for breaking news, huh? :)

My own opinion is that no one is perfect but it is just a matter of balance between positives and negatives, what is accebted and what is not in a person .

It’s not easy to find Mr. Right, but i believe only you yourself is good enough, you will finally meet a guy could match.
