The Difference Between Mr. Right And Mr. Right Now

Boys who ask girls to hang out at 2:00 p.m. and not at 2:00 a.m. are very important.

The Difference Between Mr. Right And Mr. Right Now

In our young adult life, I think we get pretty confused about the terminology that labels what kind of relationship we are in. Simply being someone's girlfriend is actually pretty uncommon. Nowadays, we have dating without the label, talking (whatever that means), friends with benefits, BAE and more. Along with trying to figure out what kind of relationship you're in, you also have to decide which guys are worth keeping for the long haul and which guys aren't. It is exhausting.

We're in that awkward stage of our lives where half of our friends are on the verge of settling down with their own Mr. Right, while the other half of us are in a committed relationship with chicken nuggets because we can't find "The One."

When I refer to Mr. Right, I mean that can't eat, can't sleep, reach for the stars, over the fence, World Series kind of love. When I refer to Mr. Right Now, I mean that even though you don't see yourself having a future with him, he's fun for the time being. Don't get me wrong, you can still fall for Mr. Right Now if he disguises his true intentions at first. You just need to be able to use your best judgment on who has the truest heart.


Mr. Right will post pictures of the two of you on his Instagram, Facebook or Snapchat story.
Mr. Right Now will make you seem nonexistent on social media.


Mr. Right will text you to ask how your day is going.
Mr. Right Now will only text you when he is bored or at nighttime.


Mr. Right will invite you to hang out with his best friends and him.
Mr. Right Now won't even bring you around his acquaintances.


Mr. Right will be content if your Saturday night plans consist of staying in.
Mr. Right Now will go out while you stay in and meet up with you after.


Mr. Right will know your favorite member of Fall Out Boy.
Mr. Right Now will be embarrassed that you still listen to Fall Out Boy.


Mr. Right will like you for your hilarious personality and intelligence.
Mr. Right Now will only compliment you on your physical appearance.


Mr. Right will enjoy the Snapchats you send him of your triple chin.

Mr. Right will be excited to meet your family.
Mr. Right Now will avoid having to meet your family at all costs.


Mr. Right will talk about your potential future together without getting freaked out.
Mr. Right Now will never talk about his feelings.


Mr. Right will get to know you before trying to hook up.

Mr. Right will take you on dates.
Mr. Right Now will ditch your date night for his friends.


Mr. Right will make your relationship a priority.
Mr. Right Now will treat your relationship like a game of cat and mouse.

Sometimes, Mr. Right Now will realize that he has it pretty good, and you're the girl that changed his ways. Though, that is not always (rarely) the case. Whether you're in a relationship with your soulmate, or you're still making a few pit stops before you reach your final destination, just remember to never settle for less than you deserve.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.

The Mets And Me

They may be the worst sometimes, but this baseball team has given me more than I could ask for.

On September 3rd, 2001, a sea of children littered my home's navy-carpeted den to watch baseball during my dad's 40th birthday extravaganza. A baseball game flickered on the TV, and a red and blue bubble of a scoreboard sat in the bottom right corner of the screen. The New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies were in a wild game at Veterans' Stadium. As I, a five-year-old boy with a jumble of curly blonde hair, sat in the back of the kid clump, I wondered which team I should root for. After a long debate with myself, I decided that I should root for the team that's winning (duh). But, as the ninth inning rolled around with the Phils maintaining a 7-5 lead, some magic occurred. The Mets put up five runs in one frame, stunning the Phillie fans in the room and winning the game 10-7.
