Happy ever after

Philippines

When I was a little girl, I always wanted to be the princess in my fairytale. Save by a prince from a flaming dragon and dreaming of a true loves kiss. I cant still find this happy ever after of mine. We love and then sometimes we broke. Happy ever after is just a dream. Our ever dream prince are not totally the same prince as in the movies. I have my prince now but I think he is not as brave as I think. No relationship as perfect as those in fairytale.

The fairy tale focus on overcoming the obstacle to 'true love' and then everyone lives happily ever after. In reality, the hard work starts once you are married. It has been said that a successful marriage is a bonding of two good forgivers. Many people view mariage as diposable, like a paper cup. If it isn't working out, just discard it. Marriage takes commitment and sacrifice and an unselfish attitude. However, it also requires realism because everyone of us at times waver in our commitment, our desire to be unselfish and to make personal sacrifice. That's when you have to let 'love cover over a multitude of sins, and hang in until the crisis passes.

Things go picture-perfect only in fairy tales. Life is a bumpy ride full of pitfalls and uncertainties. Life will never be life if everything lives up to all our expectations.

Back to reality. Fairy tales are fairy tales. They are fictions But I bet there are people who have that kind of love story in their lives and they are so lucky!!(^^) Anyway like you said, there is no perfect relationship. Even if you got someone like you wished there will be other problems involved. It just the way how you accept each other only then you will found your true love.(^^)

When we are young we always think that life should be like a fairy tale. It's a nice thought, but that is not how real life is. I have met the man of my dreams and I love him so much. We are married and have a child together, and I love my life, but it is definitely not perfect. I am glad it's not perfect, because perfect is no fun! We argue sometimes but we love each other and that's all that matters.

Well, the story that you mentioned should be "The Sleeping Beauty". There seems to me that there is a part of the prince and the dragon. Having said that all of us as children we liked the stories, so much so that sometimes empathize with the characters. I do not remember, however, that I never really got into the protagonist of a story read or told. Or sometimes shown on television. But let's face it honestly. Sometimes it is nice to live in the world of fairy tales!

We are taught as youngsters to look outside ourselves for completion, when the true forever after comes from within each of us. Such an expensive lesson and one which can take many years and much pain to learn.

I used to have the same dream too. I am married now and my prince is far from the fairy tale. Not charming, not tall, and cannot ride a horse! Real life is so different from the fairy tale. However, there are some lucky girls who managed to find their prince charming like Kate and William (real prince)!

I don't think there's a woman out there who doesn't want the happy ever after and the fairy tale. Ever since I was old enough to understand what a man and a woman do, I haven't been able to find Mr. right. I have looked everywhere, and he's nowhere to be found. Many people tell me that I've been looking too hard...maybe I have. But when I find him, I know that our relationship will have its ups and downs. Also, I am smart enough to know that there's no such thing as happy ever afters--people go and stay whether we wanted it to or not.

Its a matter of sharing. No relationship is perfect, It will only become perfect when both of you love each other so much.

The most romantic stories have " princes" with flaws and most don't end up happily ever after. The best known ones both lovers die. You just have to ask yourself this, is the guy you are with treat you the way you want to be treated? Do you feel comfortable around him? If the answer is yes then go for it.

Yes, A fairy tale is a fantasy and it is better to feel the present love story or in reality then in a fantasy world. When we love we should accept that we will be hurt also just like in the fairy tale. Sometimes there are conflicts in the story to spice the flow of the love story of lovers. We can have our own prince in reality.

Yeah I agree. I gave up on the fairytale spouse a long time ago. Yes, there is a few super special people that have amazing marriages. Just incredible people. But that's like 1 in hundreds of marriages. Most of us have to just make do with whoever we have. As for me, I'm staying single. I find that much better.

Hi Mayrylflores and welcome to my lot. I beg to differ with you I think happiness is what we make happiness. I think that the fairy tails makes us think that there are such things as there isn't. I have my prince charming he is strong kind and loving and my life has changed so much because God seen fit to give me a very handsome loving kind strong prince charming. Relationships are what we make of them. If we bitter about everything then w are bitter. But if we see something as not worth getting upset about and move on and see the good then things are good. But if all we can see is what is wrong in life then there will be many obstacles. So I try everyday to see what is good in this life God gave me. I believe that there is a prince charming for everyone truly looking for a mate to love.

Fairytale is the only animation one where the only soulless things will be acting, but in real life they wont be able to find. And dreaming of it good but thing of it to make it come true is not going to be impossible. Many people like you think in the same way as you are thinking to be a prince or princes and to be loved by someone but its not possible. And it only happens in movies and dramas.

The thing to remember about a fairytale however is that it lacks a lot of depth. In real life people are far more flawed and complex but that does not make them less interesting, on the contrary, it makes them more so. People are products of their environments and their experiences. Having a prince from a fairy tale would mean you end up with a one dimensional character who would be boring and tedious. Having a real person who has strengths and weaknesses, flaws and quirks makes the real, human and interesting. Don't underestimate that!

While it's true that true love, princes and princesses only exist in fairy tales, there is a little bit of truth in the movie SHREK. Now that one is a fairy tale too, but it's more realistic then Sleeping Beauty or Cinderella. I also really like Beauty and the Beast. Those two fairy tales are more realistic than other fairy tales, so I never give up hope. Our dreams are what push us forward, they help us to make the goals we want to accomplish in life. We love and sometimes we lose, we love and sometimes it breaks us, but we can't let those let downs keep us down, we have to keep striving and pushing ourselves forward. Sometimes, we are the only ones we have left to push ourselves. It's called perseverance, never giving up.
