Most of us have had this picture in our heads about what our prince charming would look/be like. Disneyland is one one of my FAVE places on earth & everytime I went as a child, I would picture my prince charming. I can honestly say that Mr. Chocolate Chip is almost exactly what I pictured as the man I would marry. Then again, I was always a little more realistic than I think the typical little girl is, so maybe that’s why he’s everything i’ve imagined!
How close is your SO to being what you’ve always pictured??

My fiance is everything I pictured on a certain level. I think my preferences and hopes changed throughout the years. Now I prefer a guy that can cook over a guy who has six pack abs. When I think about him I still get giddy, we have a great "night life" and I love spending time with him but him burping on the sofa is a daily reality check:) If I wanted the same guy I wanted in high school I’d be dating Zack Morris… ha!

Mine’s so much better. First, I never thought I’d find someone who was in to technology like I am, and he surpasses me by leaps and bounds as far as that goes. And he’s so supportive… but also makes me think hard about what I really want/don’t want to do. I feel like we have the right balance of awesomeness and seriousness – in my dreams it never occurred to me that a lifelong partnership takes a lot of hard work, but all that hard work makes it so much better!

My S.O. is NOTHING like I had pictured in my mind in my girly daydrewams. But as I grew up a little, my desires changed, too, but the foundation of a person remained the same. I had two rules for myself when it came to THE ONE: 1) he can’t be younger than me and 2) he has to be serious who knows how to have a good time, NOT silly but who can be serious when need be. What did I end up with? Someone three years younger than me and who is also the world’s greatest prankster/joker/crazy man. But the bottom line is that he is the most gentle, most patient and most wonderfully kind-hearted person.

Well…he was my best friend way back in high school, and people used to tease us about how we should just start dating already, and I definitely told multiple people multiple times that I would NEVER EVER EVER go out with Mr. Bluebonnet. So I guess he wasn’t really my prince charming. That being said, he did eventually sweep me off my feet just like a Disney movie, and the kind of love we have is so so so much better than anything Cinderella or Snow White ever got. 🙂

Peakay – I can relate! I always thought I’d marry someone a lot older, tall, shy, and chivalrous. My old boyfriends were all my age or older, super tall, mild-mannered, and really into the whole treating me like a lady thing that I thought I loved. My husband is younger, not very tall, super silly/jokester, a little out of control, and while he has good manners I wouldn’t really call him a gentleman…but I have the best time with him, he really gets me, he’s super smart, and makes me feel like the most beautiful person in the world. Funny (and wonderful!) how life turns out differently than you imagined 🙂

he’s so much better than i imagined! at first i thought such a guy didn’t exist at all but lo and behold here he is. yeah he does things that makes me completely exasperated [and i know i throw him for a loop every other day] but he’s perfect for me. he’s fulfilled every need i had and even some i didn’t realized i had. oooh i can’t wait to see him again!

When we first met, I tried so hard not be attracted to him because he is so much younger than me and I thought it was going to be just something fun. I never would have thought that I would fall in love with hiim as quickly as I did. I was shocked at myself when I told him that I loved him, which I had never been the first one to say it. It was so emotional for me that I started crying which my hubby told me later that he wanted to cry himself. He is definitely my one and only prince charming.

Better. I could never have imagined anyone so perfect (for me at least). I always kind of thought I would end up with someone I’d been dating that I thought I could tolerate fairly well and who wasn’t terribly annoying… But I ended up falling head over heels for the Mr, exchanging I love you’s within a week, and he’d pretty much moved in within the first month. He brings me flowers, helps cook dinner (and clean up!), changes my oil, always opens the door… so much better than I ever could have imagined. And the more time I spend with him the better everything gets.

Complete opposite of what I pictured physically. Mentally, everything is there and more. Before I met my husband I had never dated anyone under 6’2- my husband is 5’9. I can’t (well I guess I could.. but don’t) wear heels anymore. I loved heels, I love him more though. 🙂

I never thought I would get married. I didn’t date in high school…no boy showed any real interest in me. I had my "life as a single" planned out…but P and I started dating in our freshman year of college and never looked back.
He’s definitely what I was always hoping for: goofy sense of humor, intelligent, can handle my baggage, strong faith, wants to start a family.
…and he looks like Eric from Little Mermaid. Dark hair, bright blue eyes…yeah…definitely what I was looking for there. ;D

I have to admit that my FH is not my usual "type" physically, but I love him even though he was outside my normal type of guy when we started dating. 🙂

He is nothing like I imagined, because he isn’t what I thought was my "type", but he is so wonderful, sweet, giving and I feel so lucky to be with him.
