I stand firmly by my fantasy that one day prince charming would finally find me. He may not own a castle or come riding atop a horse, but I know he will be someone who will make me smile and exert rigorous efforts just to be with me.
Despite my optimism, there are times when I feel panicky. What if he has died and I’ve been waiting for no one? Or what if I’m destined for single blessedness for the rest of eternity and never have the chance to feel deliriously in-love? I’m not in my early twenties anymore and people my age are either getting married or engaged to someone . Me, I’m still waiting, like Rapunzel on top of a tower. Oh why doesn’t my prince know how to use a harness?!
Don’t get me wrong. I’m not desperate for love. It’s just the I’ve always wondered what it’s like to have another guy in your life who’s neither a friend nor a relative , what’s it like to be introduced as a girlfriend, not a teammate from football or someone who likes hiking or adventure. It would be cool if the time would come when that special someone will introduce me as their adventure partner for life. Hehehe, cheesy but cute eh. :P
Well, I’ve done my part. I’ve prayed, I’m constantly working on myself. I’ve learned to be patient and more caring. I learned to dress better and I can now cook without causing severe damage to the pan. I learned how to talk to a guy I like without stuttering. I finally learned the art of playing cool even if deep inside, I’m worse than an ice cream melting under the sun. Yet for some reason, perhaps by divine intervention, prince charming and I managed to avert each other in our daily routines. Now, I don’t want you giving me advice and all that – “he will come when you least expect it.”, I am way past that. Now, I am just waiting – patiently, lovingly so that when he comes, I will be more ready than Romy Garduce when he climbed Mt. Everest.
I prefer my fairy tale over any other story and so I am prepared to wait – like a paraglider waiting the whole day for the proper wind speed (I’m currently in a paragliding site as I’m writing this, thus the comparison, hehe), and when it comes, I am up in the air experiencing the best ride of my life.
I will see you soon Prince Charming and you better know be ready for an extreme adventure. :P
