It’s not uncommon for women to want relationships that play out like fairy tales. Fairy tales are fun to read and watch, but they are complete fiction. You can’t expect the same kind of relationship to occur in your real life. Here are four fairy tale relationship ideas you need to let go of.
1. He’s going to rescue you
Expecting a man to come to rescue you from whatever trouble you’re in is not as romantic as it sounds. Do you really want to lack the skills to save yourself? Playing the role of the damsel in distress might work to boost his ego for a little while, but it won’t be as good for your self-esteem. Trouble with your boss, car or finances are things you should attempt to handle yourself. There won’t always be someone around to help you out of a jam.
2. He’s going to be the entire perfect package
If you’re hoping to find a man who looks like a model, acts like a hero, has exceptional smarts and makes a lot of money, you’re probably going to be disappointed. This kind of perfect man can only be found in romance novels and fairy tales. No one is perfect, and wasting your time looking for that Prince Charming with zero flaws will only leave you disappointed.
3. You’re never going to argue
