Finding Prince Charming…

Forever in Love 01

looking for the right person...

Have you ever noticed that in most of the major fairy tales that you read as a kid, the only thing that the pretty girl and the young prince have to do to live “happily ever after” is meet each other?

No wonder relationships are so short these days.

What do you mean Goose?

Well have a look around… there is more and more relationships breaking up, and never getting back together… there are young men, and young women who have gone from relationship to relationship each time thinking the next relationship will be the one that will last forever…

Why will it last forever?

Because they have found “the right person!!”

The right guy.. or the right girl…

But here’s the thing… what happens after all the chemical “BANG!” has worn off???

The problem is that most people don’t work on their relationship skills… but here’s the crazy thing… all relationships involve dealing with PEOPLE! Duh!!

If you don’t work on honing those skills… then your relationships are going to be more chance and less substance. Sure the physical thing is great… but we all know it doesn’t last forever.

Here’s what I think… and you can take it or leave it…

Why don’t we spend less time looking for the right person… and spend more time making sure we are the right person! – I mean how often do we try to impress a guy or girl… but have not even put any thought into how a relationship would work.

I mean even if we take the most basic version of what love is…

 “4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.” – 1 Corinthians 13:4-7

Are you patient in your relationships? do you not try to rush someone to do the things that you want to do???

Are you kind? Are you considerate, are you always trying to lift the person you are with up?

Are you envious? of friends… or other peoples status in life?

You get the picture…

You see this is what we should be striving for… this is what makes realtionships stick…

Stop chasing a myth…

Get to the realtionship gym… and let Prince (or princess ) Charming come to you… because I bet that once you start being picky about who you are… you’ll start looking for the same in the person you want to be with.

Give it a try!
