Frog dating definition
Frog dating definition - 100 nyc dating
I speak with many women who would like to be in a relationship, but are missing one important ingredient: that elusive Y chromosome in the form of a guy.They bemoan the current state of affairs, and in a “misery loves company” sort of way, talk about it for hours on end with sympathetic friends in the same boat.
Then I read a piece by John De Vore at The Frisky, entitled “When I hear perfectly intelligent and willful women console each other with fairy tale mantras that promise, with a lot of persistence, they will find a well-heeled prince to care for them, I become conspiratorial.Like most fairy tales, “The Frog Prince” is a mordant little morality tale that cautiously suggests a lady needn’t be so choosy when picking a suitor.Even the more sanitized, and Americanized, versions of “The Frog Prince” offer this moral: personality counts!Allow yourself to be charmed by a talking frog and you’ll be rewarded.But first, you should be happy with only a talking frog.In fact, you should be so lucky to kiss him.”thought about it that way, at least not since I was a child.
I had forgotten the moral of the story, lazily interpreting it to mean that you’ll date a lot of losers (frogs) before you find a keeper (prince). The frog turned into a prince only after the princess fell for him in his ugly state. I’m always preaching to you about looking past the externals to find someone who gets you, someone smart who has something real to give.Of course, a guy’s being ugly is no guarantee of good behavior.I know one stunning girl who dated a pretty ugly guy after tiring of hot douchey guys.I think she believed he’d be grateful to be dating so far upstream, but he turned out to be the biggest dick of all. The point is, you need to really get to know someone pretty well before you can fall in love with them, so don’t expect fireworks right off the bat.Even Romeo and Juliet needed the Capulet/Montague feud to kickstart their romance.Marrying for love is a recent development in the history of mankind, relatively speaking.
