You think fairy tales are only for girls? Here’s a hint – ask yourself who wrote them. I assure you, it wasn’t just the women. It’s the great male fantasy – all it takes is one dance to  know that she’s the one. All it takes is the sound of her song from the tower, or a look at her sleeping face. And right away you know –  this is the girl in your head, sleeping or dancing or singing in front of you. Yes, girls want their princes, but boys want their princesses just as much. And they don’t want a very long courtship. They want to know immediately.

I can’t decide who has more pressure when it comes to love, the girls or the boys. Either way, too many people are disappointed too often. Girls and boys just need to focus on loving themselves and everyone else and that one special person will naturally fall into place.

And it will be beautiful, yes?
