There's nothing like that interesting space in a relationship where you could see yourself falling for a guy.


On one hand, it's an exciting time – butterflies and ice cream dates make it easy to envision the relationship going places. And on the other, we are a little nervous about the investment. What if he turns out like the others? What if it doesn't work out? Is he really the one?

Here's a checklist that can help you determine whether your latest love interest is Mr. Right or Mr. Right Now.

1. He Claims You

In a world where long-term situationships are common place, it's refreshing when a man is clear about being in a committed relationship with you.

If he doesn't hesitate to introduce you as the one, there's a good chance he's invested in making it work.

Pay attention to whether he brags about you to friends, family, and coworkers. A genuine, "I've heard so much about you," is always a good sign.
