Rockin’ Quote #20: Your Prince Will Come

myrockinquote_rockinrandommom

Hahaha!! Long gone are the days when I believed that my prince will come or knights in shining armor (who I actually preferred long ago anyway) but I saw this a while back and thought, “Yep, my thoughts exactly!” I also wanted to add some humor to my quotes sections and this quote does that.

princewillcome_rockinrandommomWhen I was little, yes, I believed in fairy tales but as I got older I realized not just that prince charmings and warrior knights don’t exist but that I don’t need them. And no, this isn’t one of those radical feminist I’m so strong I don’t need a man crap. That’s not it at all actually. Yes, I am a strong woman and no, I don’t need a man to protect me or be a hero of any kind, unless he’s being his own hero. That’s okay.

Life experience just gave me a different prospective on love and relationships and in my opinion, the fairy tales simply don’t hold a candle to the kind of relationship I want, when I’m ready to have it. If you really read the quote, my kind of man would be stubborn and head-strong.

My kind of man has a strong mind and stands on his own two feet. He tells it like it is but knows how to be respectful when he speaks. He is charming but honest. None of that fake shit that narcissists usually convey. Most of all though, someone who is just as flawed as me and my kinda weird! The prince need not apply. He also has a great sense of humor and sarcastic wit and respects my space as I respect his. My space is very important to me.

Update: February 11, 2018. I’m going to add to the quote because I think about this a lot.

I often think about the idea of a soul mate. I’m conflicted because while I would love for that to be true, the cynical side of me takes over and since I am almost always thinking in cosmic terms in my head, this quote came out. Maybe that’s why I don’t need a prince. Why ask for a prince when you can have soul mate? So this funny little quote is what I use to lift me up on the rare occasions I get a little lonely.

Now, I could be wrong, though I don’t think I am, but there isn’t one fairy tale prince in the history of fairy tales that fills these requirements. What about you? Do you want Prince Charming, a knight in shining armor to come sweep you off your feet, or do you want something different?

Thanks so much for reading!

  1. I don’t think I ever really believed in the fairy tales or wanted a Prince Charming and I certainly never needed saving by a knight. I just wanted someone to love me for me and someone who could make me laugh. Luckily I found him pretty early on and twenty years later he still makes me laugh every single day.
    Thank you for joining #FamilyFunLinky x

    1. I’m glad you found you best friend Alana! That is really amazing and I wish you both all the happiness in the world. We don’t need a knight or prince. It just takes longer for some of us to realize that but once we do, the world is our oyster:) Thanks so much for commenting!

    1. I’m actually happily single. This was just me having some fun with a tongue in cheek kind of approach to my normal cynicism towards love 😝

    1. I believe that just because a couple are soul mates doesn’t mean that don’t have to work at it. They absolutely do because at the end of the day, they’re human and two totally different people but at the same time, the cynical part of me is still wondering if that exists.

  2. I never use to believe in Prince Charmings, real love or happy ever afters, I genuinely believed these were the things of fairy tales. But when I met Mr AD i realised I was wrong, he is my prince charming with all his unique ways and real love is very real. I even wrote a post about it called My Price Charming xx

  3. Good quote!
    Yeah fairy tales did give me a warped view on what to look for but thankfully as I’ve got older I’ve noticed it really isn’t about perfection it’s more about feeling safe and secure with someone and accepting their flaws

    1. I agree! Fairy tales do t talk about the flaws we have much less the flaws someone else has. It’s good to keep that in mind when looking for love!

    1. Congrats! I’m glad you found him:). I would say I’ve given up up exactly, just that my definition of the kind I want doesn’t exactly fit the traditional mold of prince or knight! Lol! Thanks so much for dropping by!

  5. I love it! My knight in shining armour did the very same thing!
    I think you sound like you’re in a very sensible place though, I don’t suppose its very healthy to need or want a knight in shining armour to sweep you off your feet. All I want is a mixture of lots of fun and lots of loyalty 🙂 Thank you for linking up to Candid Cuddles x

    1. Same here! I respect loyalty a great deal. I want someone who I deeply respect,even when I disagree with him, someone who is honest and can communicate effectively, someone who always has my back and most definitely someone who is a lot of fun with a great sense of humor but for now, I’m content with just me:) Thanks so much for stopping by!

  6. Oh I married the complete opposite of the knight in shining armor or prince charming. Although he thinks he is quite the charmer lol. What’s really funny about this quote is that I have seen it before and one time when I was pissed at him I posted the quote to Facebook. In which he of course responded with “Well then keep on looking!” I wouldn’t expect any less of a comment. We are both stubborn as hell and sometimes it makes for hard times but we also have learned how to deal with one another in those “bad time” situations. He will go to bed angry and I will wake him every 5 minutes trying to argue more of my point lol. Great quote…totally made me laugh and yeah…fairytales are such a cliche’ There are some that I just refuse to introduce to my girls. Luckily one of my girls hates anything girlie and would rather watch super hero and movies like Lord Of The Rings and Star Wars. The other one is girlie but I prefer she watch shows that don’t have a damsel in distress…my favorite being Brave. Love Brave. Any who …I am just gabbing along over here. 💌Trista
