It’s Official: You Will Never Find Prince Charming

prince charmingMyth.Here's something we didn't need a study to prove: A survey of 2,000 women showed that no one is completely satisfied with her man. The ladies took issue with their spouses' hygiene, TV watching, and how well he does or doesn't get along with her family. I guess this means, spoiler alert! that there is no such thing as Prince Charming. So if you were holding out for a guy that would be perfect in every way, you better check yourself before you wreck yourself because he doesn't exist. Sorry!

But, everyone knew that, right? Just wanna make sure we're all on the same page, here. No one really thinks that there's a Mr. Right, as in, there's a guy that's 100 percent perfect out there, correct? There are, of course, amazing men who are perfect for us, but they're by no means perfect in and of themselves. Because, another spoiler! no one's perfect.

It's all about finding a balance between the pros and cons of anyone you choose to be in a relationship with, romantically or platonically. Maybe he leaves the toilet seat up, which sucks, but maybe he's a great listener. Maybe he clips his toenails and leaves a landmine of spikey nails on the living room floor, but maybe he's also kind-hearted and makes you laugh so hard, you pee a little. You gotta take the good with the bad.

You don't need to be 100 percent satisfied with your man, but as long as you're happy more than you're unhappy, I think you're winning.

How satisfied are you with your man?
