Prince Charming

I wrote in a previous post that I am a romantic. That I belive to the very core of my soul that happy endings are possible. So what the f**k happened?!?!

Before I get ranting, read my previous blog Giving credit where credit is due so that things are some what even.

The song 'I Can Love You Like That' (doesn't matter who sings it) gets me every time. "They read you Cinderella/ You hoped it would come true/ That someday your Prince Charming will come rescue you/" hits me. That is exactly it. Cinderella is one of my favorite movies/stories. And the lines "And you never will forget/ The way you felt when Romeo kissed Juliet" also hits me where my heart lies. I always imagined having my own Price Charming, or my own Romeo.

A life full of romance, what more could I have wanted? Someone who loved me to the very core. That perfect love where the two of you were one and cannot stand to be apart. Breakfast in bed, roses all the time, romantic candlelit dinners, the whole nine yards.

Enter real life. Instead of my Billy Idol gorgeous, fit, tall and (slightly) older man, I have a short (okay, 5'6"), overweight, beer guzzling average Joe. Okay, I think he's hot and everyone thinks I'm nuts. I'm actually a little relieved he is over-weight. Less competition. But it really can't get more different from my romantic vision.

This man cannot take a romantic hint even when I smack him in the face with it. He cannot come up with sweet nothings to whisper in my ear even if I gave him a script to read from. Flowers? Forget it!! Breakfast in bed? I have to hassle him to put the garbage outside the door, like he's really going to cook for me. So when did the fantasy fly out the door and reality set in?

In all honesty, he is a great guy. Just not my perfect guy. My ex-fiance was closer to my perfect man than my current husband. Then again, my ex still had his umbilical cord and his mom told him to dump me. I wonder where he is now? Haven't heard from him since before I was pregnant with my son. But that's something different.

But, hopefully I can slowly, painfully slowly, turn him into my Prince Charming. ::crosses fingers:: Here's hoping.

I wish you very much luck in trying, but alot of men, when they reach a certain age(birth ) are set in their ways and won't change to satisfy you. That is just how it is. You need to find someone to give you the romance you seek, a Prince Charming that comes to pick you up on his proud white Stallion, and whisk you away to never-never land. There are alot of men out there(me included) that would fit your idea of romance, you just have to look for them. You could also tell hubby, if he doesn't shape up, he's gonna have to either ship out, or take the fact that you will go astray and find the lovin you've been lookin' for!

I consider myself pretty sensible, but somehow your advice makes a lot more sense than anything I have come up with on my own. It's amazing how sometimes you need someone else's perspective. Thanks!

I think we've talked about it, Billy. But you just might be right.
