Right here, Elena, who lives in Birmingham with funding banker Zachariah and their sons, Adam, 5, and Noah, one, tells Martha Cliff and Samantha Brick why she thinks girls must cease losing time – and settle, like she did.

GROWING UP, I used to be the last word romantic. I liked watching romcoms and studying chick lit novels.

I’d all the time cry on the blissful endings. In spite of everything, who doesn’t need to be swept off their toes by Mr Excellent?

But right here I’m a full-time mum and dedicated to my first and solely love. These days I’ve very totally different views concerning the very existence of Mr Excellent.

Sorry to interrupt it to you Kim, however other than good hygiene I feel that’s fairly an extended, in depth and unrealistic record you’ve got there.

If solely it was as simple to dream up a want record and, with the wave of a magic wand, manifest all these qualities in a single single man.

The divorce charges could be at zero and we’d all be blissful girls, wouldn’t we?

Should you discover him, please let me know the place.

Realistically, everybody — and together with you, Kim — must accept somebody who doesn’t have all these qualities.

Deep down, we girls know completely properly that he doesn’t exist. That’s why I imagine — as unromantic because it sounds — there may be completely nothing mistaken with ­settling with a bloke who’s completely common.

I reckon you possibly can be losing the years whenever you’re in your prime attempting to find somebody who in all probability won’t ever flip up in your life. Why wait?

I settled for just a few causes. Primary: I couldn’t be bothered to start out over.

Secondly I didn’t need to dive into the ugly world of on-line courting. Nobody is actually themselves on the apps.

Lastly, as brutal because it sounds, I’d choose to be with Zachariah as a result of I hate being alone. As a toddler I didn’t have crushes on boyband members or blokes in movies. I undoubtedly didn’t have my head turned by different blokes at college.

Zachariah and I met at highschool and have become an merchandise at 15. Sure, we had been ridiculously younger. Particularly as he’s my one and solely boyfriend.

However Zachariah is a relaxed, humorous, happy-go-lucky sort of individual. He’s one in every of life’s good guys.

Bodily he’s of common construct, these days he has lengthy hair and he’s tall, at 6ft 2in.

Once you get up in the identical mattress with the identical bloke you’ve recognized for 17 years you get to know them, warts and all. I do know his faults however then he is aware of mine too.

Each lady initially goes on about what an amazing relationship they’ve. However get them speaking and there are all the time points.

I’m a sensible and pragmatic lady. Mr Excellent, Mr Proper, or no matter you need to name him, he doesn’t exist.

It’s why I passionately imagine that single girls like Kim must eliminate their “excellent man want record” and get with the true world.

I’ve single work colleagues of their late 30s who go on about having not met the correct individual. I do know for certain that they may finally accept somebody method down their want record.

With any single females I come into contact with I really feel it’s my obligation to remind them that the longer you permit it, the more serious the choice of males goes to be.

You decrease your probabilities drastically when you’re fixated on this construct, or that top, or a sure eye color. There are good guys on the market.

It’s why I bang on about it on a regular basis — you’ll by no means discover somebody who ticks each field.

Zachariah? Belief me, he is aware of he isn’t Mr Excellent. And I do know completely properly that I undoubtedly don’t meet the factors for Mrs Excellent both. We each giggle about it.

He tells his mum I’m all the time on the health club or by no means cook dinner what he likes. We’re imperfectly excellent collectively.

It’s a little bit of a miracle we received collectively as a result of I chatted to him for my greatest buddy.

We had been in highschool and he was within the 12 months above me. It was my buddy who preferred him. I used to be her wing lady to go and sound him out. Unhealthy luck for her, as a result of we hit it off as an alternative. Fortunately she was all proper about it.

Tables turned

He undoubtedly preferred me extra to start with. That’s in all probability why just a few instances in the course of the early years once we first began to see each other I did really attempt to break it off with him.

I used to be frightened I used to be too younger to hitch myself to 1 individual throughout my prime years.

Additionally being sensible, Zachariah was off to college. But each time I introduced it up he’d get upset. So we stayed collectively.

Zachariah did one 12 months at one college in Westminster after which we each ended up at Queen Mary’s collectively. I studied enterprise and Zachariah did economics.

It was once we had been each college students that I found the tables had been turned.

As we received older and my emotions developed for Zachariah the roles did reverse. I used to be the one who was clingier than he was.

I started texting him extra, desirous to know what he was getting as much as. Speak about on the spot karma.

In a brand new surroundings I used to be extra serious about him as a result of he was my safety blanket.

He was hanging out with people who bit older and extra subtle, to not point out clever.

Once I turned 24 I took inventory and made just a few essential choices concerning the course of my life. It was virtually the quarter of a century mark. I made a decision I wanted to provide Zachariah an ultimatum.

I used to be blunt about it. We had simply completed college, we weren’t residing collectively — did we’ve got a future collectively?

Are we going to have children and create a life collectively or are we going in several instructions? He was stunned and a bit shocked by it — however right here we’re.

Through the run-up to my twenty fifth I did do a little bit of a relationship evaluation. “He’s not excellent — however he’ll do” is the way it went.

Trying again, we had been all the time critical about each other. At instances it was to various levels however I put that all the way down to each of us being very younger.

Sure, there have been scorching guys at college, however who is aware of what unhealthy habits that they had lurking beneath the good-looking persona? Regardless that I’ve no regrets, Zachariah is much from excellent.

If I had a magic wand I’d change his priorities.

Zachariah is an extrovert. He would moderately socialise with mates. I’m the alternative and like evenings at dwelling.

He’s very last-minute and doesn’t wish to plan. I’m a saver and put cash by for the subsequent vacation or our dwelling.

He likes to spend, which is enjoyable, however when you’ve got a household it’s a must to prioritise.

Mummy’s boys

I’m lively. I am going to the health club and maintain my determine. It goes with out saying I eat healthily too.

His favorite meal is curry — I can’t abdomen all that heavy meals.

Mine is grilled hen with pitta bread, which might be half the energy.

Don’t get me mistaken, we do have some issues in frequent. I like to inform everybody I do have two Mr Perfects in my life, and they’re our sons Adam and Noah.

They’re each Mummy’s boys — for now. My associate jokes: “Lap it up, as a result of it received’t be like that for ever.”

ZACHARIAH SAYS: As for being known as Mr You’ll Do? It’s fairly cheeky. I get it, although.

I’m not excellent, neither is Elena. However we work as a workforce and, to be sincere, I feel our variations are what makes us work so we don’t conflict.

At the moment I agree that perfection doesn’t exist.

As for girls holding out for Mr Excellent? As Elena stated, decrease your guard and compromise.

You may be stunned you may be blissful and settle.
