You might appreciate this more if you're female, just a heads up :D
They say that it is best to write when you are on one extreme side of the emotional spectrum. And now I am. I am not suicidal, I am not overcome with angst, I am visiting the other side of the spectrum and I hope my stay is not temporary. I…perhaps like some of you, have spent most of my adolescence and teenage years in complete jealousy of the girl who constantly talks about her "Prince Charming". I have told myself many times that he doesn't exist. I have looked far and wide. I have rode into the sunset (get your mind out of the gutter, it's a metaphor: P) far too many times…by myself. But haven't we all?
And then he appeared. Suddenly. At first, before I knew him, I thought, just your stereotypical teenage guy, programmed to value sex before anything else. But I held on. Prince Charming doesn't appear at first in the movies. And it was worth holding on. He's funny, he's smart, and he's attractive. But most of all he's so thoughtful, and I value that more then anything.
So now I know that what I've been searching for exists. As women we often equate the wonderful prince only with the Disney Movies that grace our TV screens as children. We often think we'll never find him. He's reserved for someone else…someone better? Perhaps we don't 'deserve' him. Maybe we should stop looking?
We make up excuses so we can stop the hurting. We say we've had too many bad experiences. It's easy to say our hearts can only break so many times... when we know that what doesn't kill us makes us stronger. Perhaps we claim that we'd be better off as lesbians when really emotional turmoil is something everyone experiences. We think we would suffer less if we were alone.
Yes, every story has its failures. Cinderella is forced to work as a servant, treated terribly; Belle meets her prince in an unrecognizable form. However, many stories have more successes then failures. So hold out for that adventure. Prince Charming is waiting...you owe him and yourself that "happily ever after".
