The abbreviation Mr has been used since the mid-15th century. Since the 1800s it has been used when describing the “embodiment” of something, depending on the noun that follows it. Mr Right means the embodiment of perfection. Thus, a man that everyone wanted. (Mr Fix-It would be the embodiment of someone who can fix everything etc.)
It has gained momentum in the last few years. It is possible that this is because people have more input as to who they marry. When people used to marry a partner that was arranged for them they did not get to choose the qualities that they preferred.
