Prince Charming is every girl’s fantasy. He’s the knight in shining armor and the guy who makes fairy tales happen. All the time! He’s the one who makes every little girl and woman believe in fairy tale romances. And he’s the chivalrous man who puts all other gentlemen to shame. Have you ever wondered what it takes to woo a girl or make her fall for you? It is full of blood (literally in fairy tales; fighting dragons and evil witches), sweat, tears and hard work. But fear not, average guys out there, all you need to do is follow the path of Prince Charming. After all, if he can convince girls to believe in fairy tale endings and happy romance, following his path can surely help you do the same. Unless you’re living under a rock or haven’t read a single fairy tale in your life, you probably know who he is already. But for the less aware, Prince Charming is an idea. He’s the hero of every fairy tale that ends with the words; ‘And they lived happily ever after.’
After living through an entire childhood of fairy tales and happy endings, most girls dream of meeting the perfect Prince Charming even before they set eyes on him. Now Prince Charming is a pretty important guy. He may just be a figment of imagination in fairy tales, but his traits are almost always the same in all the stories. So usually and generally, girls look for similar traits in guys too.
#1 Be the savior.
Prince Charming is the dependable guy, the guy who always comes to a beautiful damsel’s rescue just when she needs help or a bit of rescuing from a tough spot. Be that guy. Be eager to offer a helping hand to girls, especially if it’s the girl you like or one of her friends. But be smart enough to know when she is just plain using you for her and her girlfriend’s benefits. Don’t be so clouded with love. Always know your own limit and know where and when to draw the line.
#2 Be a chivalrous guy.
Chivalry is an innate quality of the good guy. Learn to make way for a girl while stepping into an elevator, or stop to help a girl pick up something she dropped. It’ll make you look good, and give you the opportunity to strike a conversation with her. If you want to impress women around you, be it on the street or even at work, learn the art of modern chivalry because Chivalry is not dead. Not if you keep it up.
#3 Fight for her.
Let her see that you’re willing to make the effort to win her over, be it from dragons or other men who are trying to get her attention. Don’t behave like a spoilt brat who sulks in the corner when he doesn’t get what he wants. Instead, go out there and win her attention, even if she’s surrounded by other suitors. Show her she is worth fighting for. And don’t stop fighting for her even after you got her because, believe me, that’s when you got to fight the most. To keep her.
#4 Pursue her.
A great girl will always play hard to get, and that’s never a bad thing. The phase of pursuing and chasing a girl does two things, helps you realize if she’s worth the trouble, and secondly, it helps her see that you’re willing to make the effort to woo her. The chase is always the part where girls see if guys are willing to prove their ‘love’ or not, because it takes up time, effort, and the amount of thought you put into what you’re doing. It only shows them how much you think of her. So go on out there with a bunch of hand tied flowers and woo her, even if she laughs and turns into a shade of awkward pink. Remember, there’s something really sexy and cute about a guy who doesn’t mind embarrassing himself just to win a girl’s heart.
#5 Be a man of principles.
Prince Charming is a man of principles. He keeps his word and never backtracks on it. If you make a promise to the girl you like, make sure you keep it. (Unless you really have no choice but to break the promise, depending on the situation) Because no girl likes a guy with empty words and broken promises. A man of principles applies the same rules to himself and to others around him, be it about compliments or accusations. So moral of the story is; Don’t make promises you can’t keep. If you are unable to do something, say it there and then.
#6 Be the leader.
A great guy is almost always the guy who stands out in a group. He’s charismatic and everyone around him respect him and listen to his views. You don’t need to be an alpha male to be a leader, you just need to be respected and taken seriously. This also applies to things like choosing a venue for dinner on a date. Be the guy who says, ‘Its a surprise. Don’t worry, you’ll love it.’ than a guy who says, ‘I don’t know. Where do you want to go for dinner?’
#7 Don’t be a coward.
Prince Charming is brave and never tucks his tail. When you’re dating a girl, she expects you to be her protector. If you seem weak willed or cowardly, especially in your own daily life, be it work or family, she’ll never be able to look up at you as someone she can rely on in times of need.
#8 Look like a dashing hero.
Price Charming always looks good. If you think you’re not the most handsome guy in the room, worry not. Charm and charisma has less to do with natural beauty and more to do with how you present yourself. Physique is not always a girl’s first thing on her list. If you’re just a pretty shell with no pearl inside, you might as well be a good looking cardboard. Your looks are just a bonus. Be fit, look clean and dress well, and let the women in your life see you for the gentleman that you are.
#9 Be a confident smooth talker.
Confident talkers are always the most interesting people, and they most definitely know how to impress women, make them smile and have a great time. Don’t be a nervous wreck that can’t make a move on a girl. Girls would be less impress if you stutter and always run out of things to say. Learn to effortlessly strike a conversation with the girl you like and always find ways to create happy, non-stop laughter conversations.
#10 Motivation and determination.
A true knight in shining armor is focused in his professional and personal life. Don’t be the vagabond who has no clear directions in life. If you want to impress a girl, let her see that you have your own goals in life and are working hard to achieve your dreams. After all, girls are always drawn to be big dreamers.
#11 The graceful you.
One of the biggest traits of the typical Prince Charming is his grace and composure. Be aware of your body and learn to carry it well. Work on your posture and stand tall, it always makes you appear more confident and makes you better looking than the others who walk with a slouched gait.
#12 Be intelligent.
A charming guy is a smooth talkers and wonderful conversationalist, but he’s also very aware of the world around him. If you want to be the man of a special girl’s dreams, have intelligent conversations with her so she can see you for the intellectual that you are. Corny one liners and jokes are great ice breakers, but you need to be a man of substance to woo her and show her that you’re truly Prince Charming material. Personally, I find intelligent guys attractive. 😉
#13 Smell good
I know it was never stated in fairy tales whether the prince smell good or not because they mostly talk, dreamily, about how they dance and whatnot. But nonetheless, smelling good is what will attract a girl to you. It is scientifically proven to be ‘more important than six-pack abs, a killer smile or an overflowing bank account‘. But smelling good is very vague. You might think you smell good, but the girl you’re chasing might not. So it is best to ask you female friends for help when it comes to this department.
Every guy in the world has to potential to be Prince Charming and woo any girl he likes and win her over. But of course, the path to being a great guy isn’t easy. It takes motivation and the will to change for the better. If you’re having a hard time wooing girls already, it probably means you’re doing something wrong right now. Or maybe not. Maybe its just a sign that says your princess has yet to arrive in her carriage. But be willing to change, and use these Prince Charming traits here to help you along the way. If you truly follow these steps, you’d surely make girls swoon, as soon as you’re ready. If you’re trying to woo a girl, work your way into becoming the prince of her dreams. Your own personal fairy tale with a happily ever after is probably just a page away.
Goodluck all Prince Charming. 🙂
