This is one of the most sought after dating tips there is: how can you tell if the man you’re dating is Mr Right, or Mr Right now? It may be too early to tell if you’ve only just started dating, but there are a few promising signs you should watch out for nevertheless. Here are 5 dating tips to help you decide if you’re on the path to true love:

1. You like him more and more each day

Whilst some people claim to have fallen in love at first sight, having a fairytale experience isn’t always what happens when you meet Mr Right. Love happens gradually to some of us – so if this is you, don’t worry. Often the relationships that are ‘slow burners’ turn out to be the happiest, and have the most longevity. If you’ve been dating for a while, and you’re still finding new things you like about him, this could be a sign that things will last.


2. You laugh together


Time after time research has shown that the ability to laugh together, and to make each other laugh is a key ingredient to long lasting relationships. If you and the man you’re dating spend most of your time laughing together, it can be a sign that you’ll never tire of each other’s company, a telling sign that you have met Mr Right.

3. You’re physically attracted to one another

We’re not saying there has to be fireworks straight away, but if the man you’re dating truly is Mr Right, you’ll always want to be physically close to each other and should fancy each other no matter what. Looking out for this chemistry is a key dating tip and means that should dating turn into something more serious, the spark you have will go the distance.

4. You really like him – despite his flaws

Infatuation is one thing. But the only way to spot Mr Right is to get to know all his flaws. If you’re feelings are exactly the same after knowing him inside out, flaws and all, then you’re onto a winner. Crushes come and go, but it’s impossible to tell if he’s Mr Right without taking the time to get to know each other, so make sure you’ve done this before you start planning your future together.

5. You smile when you think about him

How do you feel when you think about the man you’re dating? Feeling really good when you think about him is a great sign. If you’re dating someone who’s wrong for you or if things aren’t going well, you might feel upset or anxious when you think about him. If on the other hand the mere mention of the man you’re dating puts a big smile on your face, it can be a great sign of things to come.
