    If so? Do you believe that Mr/Ms right is something that you find? Or do you believe that it is something that you basically create? (ie taking a person and pretty much molding them into your Mr/Ms Right)?

    no one is completely perfect. your perfect person is the person you love and whom you can live with... imperfections and all :)

    that said, i think there is more than one

    some people are more compatible than others.
    some people are really really more compatible than others.
    Some people are really really really really more compatible than others.

    You should try and find someone from that last category.

    Even then, they won't be "perfect" (no one is, even if you cloned a telepathic slave version of your perfect idealized girl, she still wouldn't be "perfect")

    But you should still try and select from the last category. Things will be better.

    And there are obviously more than just 1 or 2 -- at least there ought to be.

    If there isn't, your criteria is hopelessly unrealistically strict, or else you're not getting out there and meeting the right people.

    That's how I feel. There is no Mr/Ms right because everyone has a list of standards that their partner must meet and for the most part, those standards are very high. No one is perfect that will fit all those standards and therefore is no perfect person for everyone out there.
    You learn to get to know people and if you end up liking that person despite all their flaws, then that person will probably grow to become mr/ms right.

    My bf, for example, didn't have a lot of the criterias I would normally look for in a person I'd go out with. But we were friends and he had a great personality. We had a lot of things in common and I was able to overlook all those things. We got along great and eventually one thing led to another. We had some great times together, but unfortunately, I don't think he was ready for a relationship so my story didn't end as happily as MissKitty's did.

    Eh?
    For me, the most important part of finding Mr. Right isn't just that his ideals are in line with mine and our personalities match. It's also that we can change and grow together. The Mr. Right today isn't going to be the same Mr. Right 20, 40, 60 years from now... but the real Mr. Right will change and grow with me, and I with him.

    For the last 6 months of my relationship of 1 year, I thought that I had FINALLY found Ms. Right. 3rd time's the charm, they say.

    Then she broke up with me.
