I'm Just Like Every Other Girl In The World Who Is Chasing Her Prince Charming

I'm Just Like Every Other Girl In The World Who Is Chasing Her Prince Charming

Have you found your prince, or are you still waiting?


Just like every kid, when I was younger I loved a good fairy tale and a happy ending. Maybe not as much as some girls who dream about the exact wedding they want someday, I mean obviously I have thought about it but if and when I find the right guy, do I even want to get married. Growing up watching those movies, reading those kinds of books, and most likely seeing your grandparents, or your parent's relationships gives you an idea of what you may want someday. But not me I have had to come up with that on my own, I'm sure I'm not alone no family is perfect and I know that. I'm not sure if I will ever know what I truly want out of a relationship or if I want one at all.

Do I want the super serious one where we count every day, celebrate every anniversary, know each other more than we know ourselves, and just plain enjoy each others company? Sure, that sounds pretty great but also like a lot. Do I want my best friend to be the one that I love and every moment that we do get to spend together is the absolute best, sure sounds great too? Or do I want to stay single with my truck dog and horse, and just live it up. I want a relationship in which we love each other no matter what, in any situation, in all the hurt, and fights, and insecurities. Someday I wouldn't mind being swept off my feet, but honestly only want that to happen if it's the real thing.

I do what I can, and feel I have to right now to get by, trying not to cry every day just like every young woman growing up. Getting older just isn't easy, times are constantly getting harder, along with the people we deal with, and we allow ourselves to love someone who may not always love us back which is another thing that has to be dealt with. Like it isn't already hard enough to put ourselves out there in the slightest way. We constantly worry are we good enough, he deserves better, how could he possibly love me. I'm sure we love a lot of people throughout our lifetime, but those words get thrown out probably too easily at times.

When you do find that someone that you actually see yourself falling for you get scared s***less. How can we not? This guy is good to you though in every way, you like being around him, you enjoy your talks and jokes. He makes you laugh and you love him, but then again he is most likely using you. because in the end, we all use each other in one way or another, must be human nature. But do you care if you are happy when you are with him? We go through every day trying to avoid it, running from it constantly, the "IT" I am referring to is our freaking heart ladies. It makes us do some wild stuff, and sometimes we can't stop it. Let's be honest, which one do we say okay to more? our hearts or our brain? In the end, we are all messed up, I don't care how much you think you have your life together, because it's true we are all messed up in on way or another and that's okay. As long as were all messed up together right.

We are just waiting for that one guy to fall in our path that will be the one we have been waiting for. Our prince charming. The man who is going to care and take care of us when we need it. Who will give us a strong shoulder to cry on, cuddle with us when we're in the mood and tell us everything is going to be okay. That's the guy we all want. the one that is always honest with us even if it may hurt. The guy that actually cares about our feelings and wants to help. The one who will go on crazy adventures with us when the mood strikes, the man who pleases us in so many ways. We are just chasing our prince charming and there has got to be one out there for all of us. I suppose I should now say, don't settle for anything less than what you think you deserve!

As women we struggles to love ourselves just as much as we struggle to love anyone else. Just think to yourself right now what would your prince charming be like? For me, I am probably chasing that love that is the hardest to find. I want that unconditional love, the kind of love that we can just look into each other's eyes and fall more in love. WE laugh and joke all the time together. He is constantly putting a smile on my face, and always wants to give me a kiss or hug and hold my hand. That little kid stuff we used to get so shy to do. He would never be afraid to tell me how much he loves me. He would remember what I was wearing when we first met. He would always be there for me and be my #1 fan in life.

I may be throwing out a bunch of BS that no one has, I guess in the end we just all want someone to love us. We can be patient and wait for it to happen, or go out there and find it, or maybe it's right in front of us and we didn't realize, maybe your prince charming is your best friend and you knew it all along. In the end, this prince charming is just a figure in the shadows, what we all want is someone who will love us and only us, doesn't always have to be charing but knows unconditional love, and how to be true and faithful to us.

It's Time To Start Dating And Stop 'Talking'

The younger generation is over dating and talking only and here's why it should stop.


Today's society is scared of dating. They have come to a custom of talking for months. They will do everything a couple will do, but they're just talking. They hate labels and they hate commitment. Couples will literally be talking for an entire year, but will never use the term dating.

Many couples will talk instead of talking due to commitment. This might come from a negative experience of a past relationship. Many people have been cheated on and this effects the way they look at dating. Some have been through abusive relationships which then leads to being afraid of relationships. They let one drastic situation take on their opinions on dating.

People do not want to settle down. Some people don't want to be with just one person. They would like to be with several and that's not OK. Asking for someone to be faithful should not be that hard. The constant voice in the back of your head wondering if someone is cheating because you've already been cheated on once is not OK either. Being cheated on and not being able to settle for one person are both issues as to why dating is no longer a thing.

Getting out of an abusive relationship is pretty tough whether it was emotional, sexual, or abusive. They're all pretty hard and it will be hard to settle down and trust someone else. This is another reason why people will talk for a while before they date. They often want to get to know the person more, but at what point are you going to know each other too well?

Dating is scary no doubt. I personally was scared of dating again after an awful relationship, but I am so glad I got back into it. I talked to my now partner for a little over a month before we made things official. I got to know him, but here we are months later and I am still getting to know him. So stop the months upon months of talking and start dating!

To The Boy I’ve Been Dating Since I Was 15, I Always Knew You Were My Forever

Thank you for showing me love when I thought I didn't deserve any.


Hey you,

People assumed our "fling" would only last a few short months. It's what everyone assumes when your first love happens during your sophomore year of high school. Yet here we stand, three and a half years later, more together than we've ever been. Although we've had our ups and downs, we still managed to keep our relationship going and to remember why we're together in the first place.

Many say loving isn't easy, but you make it a walk in the park.

You respect me in more ways than one, and you make me feel beautiful, inside and out. For a long time, I never noticed the beauty and strength I have within myself. I didn't see what others would point out to me, and at times I still find it hard to acknowledge my worth. However, you came into my life at a time when I felt I had no one, and you helped me to see all I have to offer. You helped me to open my mind to the thought of loving myself for who I am, and although the road is long and I'm not completely there, you've made me see how worthy of love I truly am.

Having you as my best friend, along with being my boyfriend, is the most rewarding feeling in the world.

I think the reason we rarely fight or stay angry with each other is that we truly are best friends. We could spend all of our time in deep conversation about any topic in the world and still feel engaged and ready to hear more from one another. Every single day I learn something new about you and vice versa. We can be ourselves in each other's presence and have fun doing absolutely nothing exciting. I am easily annoyed by a lot of things, but you are not one of them. Being with you for hours, even if we just watch TV the entire time, never gets repetitive or boring.

You treated me with the respect I deserved before I even realized I was worthy of it.

In many ways, I don't respect myself. Whether it be body image or letting "friends" walk all over me, I let many thoughts and people control my life. You, however, were the saving grace I needed. You've shown me how I deserve to be treated and how I should think of myself. Often I wonder how I got so lucky to end up with someone who loves me unconditionally and who values everything I have to offer. I say all the time that I don't deserve your heart, your kindness, your love, but you always remind me that I do. And I'm starting to realize that you're right; I deserve every bit of love, kindness, and respect that you have to offer. I can only hope that I award you with the same love and selflessness you give me every single day.

Three and a half years with someone may seem extremely long, but I feel as though we've been together a lifetime. It's hard to remember a time when you weren't right there beside me, and I would never want to imagine a future without you in it. There are so many more laughs, adventures, and memories to be made with you, and I only hope that I can be at least half of the person you are.

Thank you for pulling me out of the darkness. Today, tomorrow, and always.
