After having written two posts about finding and waiting for Prince Charming (you can read them here and here), a few people have asked about what a Princess Charming should be like. What kind of girl would a Prince Charming be looking for?
1) Be Yourself
Girls, the best thing you can ever do is to be yourself. Find yourself, embrace yourself and love yourself. Stop trying to be somebody you’re not. God made you exactly the way you are for a reason. In Ephesians He says that you are his masterpiece. Everything about you is perfect. You’re basically His Mona Lisa and He is so proud of you.
2) Don’t Advertise Yourself
How often do you see an advert for a Lamborghini? And how often do you see an advert for a Volvo? The best don’t need advertising – everyone knows what the best cars are and where to find them. The same goes for you! You shouldn’t have to advertise yourself to get attention from the right guy.
With this, you must also remember that just how not everyone can afford the expensive cars, not everyone can afford you. So a lot of guys go for the cheaper option, because it’s less effort to get. That type of guy is not the Prince Charming of your story. Never lower your standards because you think the right guy won’t come along. You’re worth so much more.
3) Be A Good Friend
Whilst doing my research for this blog post, I asked my boyfriend what his Princess Checklist was. He said the following “someone who has genuine friendships with other people because then you know they won’t be weird later on and that they’re genuine“. This made me think. Friendships are more important than a lot of us realise. We learn so much from communicating with other people on a regular basis. We learn trust, compromise, loyalty and love! These are crucial in order to make a friendship be successful, let alone a relationship.
4) Be Careful With Your Present
Your present will one day turn into your past. I hate to say it but the past likes to rock up into your future present. You may be single and ready to mingle right now, but remember that one day you might have Prince Charming standing in front of you and it will hurt him if your past knocks on the door to say hello.
5) Be Found In God
I asked a guy from my church about his Princess Charming Checklist and he said that the most important thing is that she loves God more than she loves him. If you are found in God, you won’t be searching for yourself in a guy. One thing you need to know is that you will never find yourself in another person. You need to know that God is and always will be the most important thing in your life. He’s the one who holds you in the palm of His hands. He’s the one who has a plan for you. He’s the one who puts the stars in your sky. He’s the hero of your story – not your Prince Charming.
