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?
