Still Hoping For My Fairy Tale
Do fairy tales still come true or are these those things that our mothers told us before putting us to bed? Do modern day fairy tales even exist anymore? All my life I have believed in fairy tales, but as much as I hate to admit this the older I get the more cynical and bitter I'm becoming. I mean for me the ULTIMATE fairy tales was Diana Spencer marrying her Prince Charming aka Prince Charles Windsor on 29 July 1981. I stayed up to watch the blessed event along with the rest of the world (and yes I just told you my age :-p). Like the rest of the world I watched this modern day fairy tale unfold and sadly fall apart eventually ending in the death of Our Beloved Princess.
Fast forward to 2005 when I met my "Prince Charming". I was blissfully happy (or so I thought) I was on top of the world living my own Titanic moment, well the good parts that is then my ship finally hit the fatal iceberg. As it turns out my iceberg was a woman, two to be more precise. The first one was my bf's wife. Yes you heard that right his wife. As it turns out the bugger lied to me from day one and was in fact still married but bugger that he was, never told me nor did he tell me that he lived at home which is why I never knew he was married. Iceberg number two you ask? Well that would be his other girlfriend, as it tuns out he was cheating on me. When it started I do not know for sure which is besides the point.
The experience of being the other woman yet again and then being cheated on as well as other all around bad dating experiences have made me ponder if believing in fairy tales or happy endings is worth it anymore? I mean doesn't seem like there all that many out there and yet I still want to believe in them as the alternative is far more sad and depressing.
