Are you in want of a prince?
Well, perhaps not a prince, but a guy you can call your own?
If the answer is yes to at least one of those questions, what are you doing to make it a reality?
Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m a trad girl at heart. I prefer to be pursued rather than act as the pursuer, but we can’t all be Snow White, just waiting around for a worthy man to come our way. You could try it out, but I suspect if you did, someday could quite easily become never-going-to-happen.
So, what can you do to land yourself your own Prince Charming?
If I knew the answer to that, I would be a millionaire.
Instead, here are some tips to make it more likely that a good guy will come a-knocking.
Dress to Impress
I know, I know, you’re one of those ladies who dress for themselves and themselves only.
“If he doesn’t accept me for who I am, then I don’t want to be with him.”
Very true, but it’s nice to make a little effort, isn’t it? Especially if there’s something wonderful to gain.
And I’ll let you in on a little secret: guys make an effort for girls, too.
I’ll leave you with that shocking discovery … and move on to the next tip.
When a Guy You Find Attractive Smiles at You, Smile Back
What?! And let him think that you might be interested? No way. The game would be up.
I know. It’s tough. You’re used to pulling those stony stares. Indifference is your default.
You want to play the loooong game, but how will he know that he’s been invited to play if he doesn’t even realize that you’re the slightest bit interested?
Plus, game-playing? It’s so last Thursday.
Accept a Compliment or Two
“That dress looks really good on you.”
What is he after? you think immediately.
“Thanks,” you say aloud, voice strained, “but there’s more to me than just a pretty dress.”
Last week, he complimented you on your presentation skills, and in response, you shrugged and said in a clipped tone, “Thanks. But it wasn’t anything special. Just doing my job.” In your head you thought, Would he say that if I was a guy?
Will he try again the following week? Probably not.
Instead of being frosty, try responding with a smile. Accept the compliment. If you’re feeling daring, give him one of his own.
Admit to Yourself, and Others, That You would Actually Like to Have a Boyfriend
Don’t worry. It doesn’t mean that you are desperate or that you can’t live without a guy.
“Magic Mirror, on the wall, who is the strongest and most independent woman of them all?”
“My dear, you are the strongest and most independent, it is true, but wouldn’t you like a kind man to share everything with you?”
Sharing. What a nice idea.
There you have it. Follow at least one of these tips, and you’ll be that much closer to catching yourself a prince.
I’m wishing, for the one I love, to find me, today.
I’m hoping, and I’m dreaming of the nice things he’ll say …
