What’s your definition of “Prince Charming”?

From dictionary, this term is defined as “an ideal male lover who is both handsome and of admirable character.”

Of course nobody is perfect, but we can always dream, right?

I have browsed around and found answers from some ladies. See if you also agree with them.

One of them said ideally her prince charming would be a friend whom she could laugh with or chat for hours. In other words, he would have some sense of humor, willing to laugh at himself or someone with a free spirit.

Another lady defined her prince as someone who was tall with blue, green or gray eyes. Her prince would be strong such that he would stand for what he believed and not easily pressured into giving in. Most of all, he had to love her, cook for her, buy her diamonds, etc.

One said her prince charming would support her or do anything for her. Similarly, another lady said her prince would be decent looking and tall. He would make her feel special, willing to listen to her and always be there for her, etc. On top of all that, he had to be faithful.

A lady simply listed a bunch of traits for a man to be her perfect prince: sweet, understanding, funny, sensitive, fearless, protective, honest, smart, tall, average build, etc. He should have bright smiles and penetrating eyes (green or blue).

Very interestingly, some said looks weren’t so important as long as the man wasn’t ugly looking. Personality seemed to matter more.

So now, what do you think?

To me, Albert in Candy Candy appeared to have most of these qualities mentioned above. The author of Candy Candy, Mizuki, had indeed created his character as a “prince” material. Do you agree?

Lucky Candy… isn’t she?

    So, in order to summarize all of the characteristics of a prince charming, I would undoubtedly say his name is WILLIAM ALBERT ANDLEY!

      Well said, SweetCandyAndley! For sure the author Mizuki knew what she did and created such a charming character! 😀

    I saw a lovely couple with their child resting on their portable chairs in the beach. The man loves his wife and child so much he doesn’t mind getting stung by heat wave as he assembled the umbrella just for his wife and their child. I was so touched by his love that I had to share this here. Now, that’s the kind of prince I’m hoping for.

    1. Ms Puddle

      Thank you for sharing! Yes it’s very sweet! 🙂

  3. Janie

    Albert’s blue eyes strike as mysterious and sexy 😀

    1. Ms Puddle

      You’re right 😉

  4. Guest

    You forgot to add sacrifice, like Albert saved Candy from a lion 😉

    1. Ms Puddle

      Good point! Thanks! 🙂

  5. Guest

    …that he care less how I dress, act, talk. In fact, we’re five years married 😛

    1. Ms Puddle

      Good for you! 😀

    When we have same interest in music and sing songs together 😉

    1. Ms Puddle

      Good points snowbell! 😀

    If he truly loves the girl, he’d forget his rich attitude, take off his shoes, grab a machete knife, and work with her in the fields like normal people. Deed is far more important than showing off his beautiful face. Right?

    I love your blog and hope to come back here again!

    1. Monique

      Sacrifice… 🙂

      1. Ms Puddle

        🙂

    2. Ms Puddle

      Thank you Monique! ^_^ Yes, actions speak louder than words 🙂

    I met someone who has the same trait as Albert. That was when I was in college. He was every girl’s dream on campus. Unfotunately… he likes men. *sniffs* 🙁

    1. Ms Puddle

      I see… So you didn’t have a chance? Reminds me of the movie “My best friend’s wedding”

    Albert sure is prince material! If I weren’t married already, I wouldn’t mind having one for myself 😉
    And it’s the complete description of him that makes him so wonderful and handsome, even if he is blond.

    My ideal looking man used to be someone with dark hair and brown eyes. The man I married has darkblond/lightbrown hair with grey/green eyes.
    In the end I didn’t go for the looks, even though my husband is good looking, but I went for character. My husband is my prince charming. He will do anything for me, we can talk for hours, we are on the same page (most of the time) and he loves me.
    Lets not forget respect, which is very important as well

    1. Ms Puddle

      Lucky you, CKati!! Not only your husband is good looking, but he is above all your soulmate!! That’s very wonderful! I guess you’re also a pretty woman? 😉

    2. Ms Puddle

      Moreover, you’re absolutely right about respect! I also think that character is more important in the long run as life long partner. Good looks and awesome body will eventually fade, but one’s character will hopefully mature! 😀

    Aladdin is my kind of prince because his personality turns me on like a switch lol

    1. Ms Puddle

      He’s not my type, but glad you have an example too 😉

  11. EnakaT

    When that prince chooses to drop his work to take care of someone who is feverish. Sweet! ❤ ❤ ❤ (Ɔ ˘⌣˘)˘⌣˘ C)❤ ❤ ❤

    1. Ms Puddle

      Ahhh .. That famous scene 😉

  12. reyzen

    A true prince charming doesn’t complain what I eat. He enjoys watching me. 😉

    1. Ms Puddle

      Funny! Lol 😀

  13. Aria

    My prince charming is someone who is on the same page with me 😉

    1. Ms Puddle

      I agree with you, Aria! ^_^ To me he should know me very well! 🙂

      1. Aria

        …and you should know him very well also 🙂

        1. Ms Puddle

          Very true!! ^_^

    My ideal prince is a man in a shining armor on a white horse 😀

    1. Ms Puddle

      Hahaha… The typical description 😉 ^_^

  15. Eli (@Elisa_BCN_)

    Albert es sin duda un Príncipe Encantador, pero también un ejemplo de “keeper”: hombre sensato, seguro de sí mismo. Un tipo con carácter, visión y firmes ideales.

    1. Ms Puddle

      Totalmente de acuerdo! Gracias, Eli, por escribir usted! 😀

    Speaking of Prince Charming, I knew two sisters. Let me name them as not to confuse you. One is called Apple and one is Banana. There were handsome two men in their lives and they were very kind. One is rich and the other is from middle class. The rich man is Orange. The other is Pear. Orange is in love with Apple and they were engaged. Pear loves Banana, but she keeps avoiding him because she prefers her sister’s fiancé. Then, to make Orange end up with her (Banana), she seduced him. They got married. Sadly…they were never happy. Orange’s kindness had gone madness because Banana ruined his life. He had brought her nothing but cold approach, etc. His heart remains for Apple. When Banana got tired of her miserable life, she visited her sister. Guess who answered the door for her? Her old boyfriend, Pear, who became the husband of her older sister. He turned out to be a PERFECT PRINCE after all. She observed how happy her sister (Apple) is with her ex-boyfriend. After that, she (Banana) went home full of regrets. Sad, isn’t it? I mean, how would we know if he was the right prince for every female? 🙁

    The way Banana ignores Pear’s kindness because she was busy with the other man, does that remind you of Candy and Albert? 🙁

    1. Ms Puddle

      Thank you for sharing a story… I presume it’s real? But it’s interesting why the sister didn’t know her sister had been married already ;). Thanks for writing such a long comment though! ^_^

      1. maraliz

        Yes, she did, but Apple stopped talking to her after what happened and lost contact. She had no idea Pear was there for her big sister at times of trouble until they fell in love. If only Banana gave her ex a chance to get to know him better, then she wouldn’t be suffering with her marriage life to Orange.

        1. Ms Puddle

          Perhaps Pear was meant for her big sister after all. He deserved a better woman don’t you think? 😉

      2. maraliz

        Right on 😉

  17. Guest

    Well said!

    1. Ms Puddle

      Thanks!! 🙂

    If we’re going to compare the ideal man to Albert who is rich with good looks, clothes, fancy cars, great mansions, but lack of Albert’s kindness and humility, then I’d say he’s no prince charming. Even though he has perfect body like Brad Pitt, however he gives you nothing but black eyes, forget it.

    1. Ms Puddle

      Yes… Kindness is also important ^_^

  19. Raquel

    Agree with all you said. Summing up if the man fully accepted the woman no matter what or who she is or where she comes from, then I’d call him a ~true prince~. 😉

    1. Ms Puddle

      Can’t agree with you more ;). Thanks!!
