Most girls desperately pursue a search for their Prince Charming amongst the suitors who come to call. Although you could label me a dreamer with an extreme amount of accuracy, I do not yearn for this kind of man. Instead, I am waiting patiently (more or less) for my Eugene Fitzherbert.
|This is me when it comes to Eugene. No lie.|
There are numerous reasons as to why I prefer my Eugene over Charming, but in the end it comes down to the fact he is a man who:
knows how to make a great first impression.
would be able to withstand my quickly alternating shifts in disposition.
can be serious, but is very lighthearted.
embraces the way I constantly marvel at the mysteries of the world.
is willing to participate in crazy activities that make absolutely no sense and could possibly be embarrassing.
does not mind defending his distressed damsel.
designs creative adventures in which for us to partake together.
demonstrates a certain charm with animals.
will dance with me, even if he has two left feet.
has mastered the world's most lethal weapon: The Smolder.
has the strength and courage to do what is right regardless of the intimidating consequences.
"sees the light," as in the True Light of Christ.
Add in his rugged handsome features and Eugene Fitzherbert is my dream. But, there is one trait about him that made me fall head over heels:
He is not perfect.
When he first stumbles upon Rapunzel (or, more accurately, invades her tower), it was an attempt to hide from the law. His occupation was a selfish one as he had just stolen the lost princess's tiara from her family's castle. His face was plastered on wanted posters all across the kingdom. He was far from being free from sin.
It is for this reason that he is my favorite. Disney did not portray him as a man who was not attainable. I know that I am a far cry from being perfect, so why should I expect my man to be immaculate? To me, Prince Charming is too good to be true because he is without mistake. It is through Eugene's flaws that I realize I crave a guy who is going to understand that I sin and strengthen me to ask for God's forgiveness.
Future husband? I hope that you are reading this and know that I am saving myself for you. I also pray that you are preparing yourself for a lifetime of adventure because my heart is pretty set on exploring everything this magical world has to offer.
