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.
When 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!
