Prince Charming

So this post is sort of in response to my friend's post on his blog and in honor of Valentine's Day. So my friend posted part of an essay written by a girl he knows who basically said there are no good guys out here at BYU and that to be happy you just have to settle, and that there is no such thing a "prince charming." I will most definitely have to disagree with that statement. I will agree that no man (or woman) is perfect and that whoever you do find will have faults but you learn to focus on their strengths and not "settle." I'm sure that even Cinderella's Prince Charming wasn't perfect.
I think the real thing is to find someone you love and they become your prince charming, your other half and you learn to see past their faults and they become pretty much perfect. I don't think that anyone has to settle into a relationship, I think people that do most of the time just aren't willing to put out the effort that it takes to make a better relationship work. I have found my prince charming, I know that's cheesy but he is, he is even entered into my phone as that.

Jonny and I have been dating for almost 5 years and I have loved all of it. I'm not going to pretend it is always easy because it's not, it takes work but that makes me love him even more. He makes me a better person and I hope I do the same for him. I honestly think that anyone can have an amazing and happy relationship if they just try. Anyone who is willing to put in the effort can have their prince charming or their princess. For the most part I also think that any two people can love each other and be happy together, I think there are people who are more right for one another but I don't really think there are "soul mates" or one perfect person for you. I'm just going to end with one of my favorite quotes from one of my favorite movies: The Wedding Planner. "Love is not perfect, love, love is just love." I think that quote pretty much sums it up. Hopefully that wasn't too cheesy, if it was give me a break it is almost Valentine's Day!
