Is He Your Prince Charming, Or Is He Not? A Handy 11 Point Checklist For Your Help

Beware! Your Prince Charming may not be as charming on the inside as he is on the outside. Read and find out if yours is a prince or a frog.

“A great relationship is about two things: first, find out the similarities, and second, respect the differences!” — Unknown.

Every girl dreams of a Prince Charming who’s tall, dusky, handsome with a proper physique riding on a magnificent white horse and coming towards you to sweep you off your feet… (sounds too good to be true, doesn’t it?)

Wake up! Come back to reality! Not all girls meet this Prince Charming in real life. Some of these ‘princes’ are or can be stalkers, hideous cheaters, playboys etc., almost everything that you so not wanted your Prince Charming to be.

Let’s see some questions that you could ask yourself to check if your ‘prince’ is actually a prince or not.

  • Does he get furious even if you just speak to another male friend?
  • Does he make you feel guilty about not spending time with him, or not doing things with him but with your family and other friends?
  • Does he use abusive verbal language for you and your friends?
  • Does he blame you for his anger outbursts or aggression?
  • Does he use inappropriate language towards other women or girls?
  • Does your boyfriend never pay heed to your suggestions or opinions?
  • Does he mock you, or makes jokes at your expense in public to make you embarrassed?
  • Does he avoid talking about your future together?

If the answers to most of these questions is a YES, then it’s time to take a break from the relationship and think it over. Do you really want to be with someone who is just opposite to what a chivalrous prince would be?

Remember it’s never too late to walk out of a relationship which has no respect, privacy, space and independence or which has ‘only me’ and not ‘you’ or ‘us’.
