Are You Sure You Aren’t Looking for a Fairytale?

“Your goal to find a kind, loving Catholic husband who will treat you like a princess fits my goal of marrying a princess like you.”

I’m in Florida and he isn’t. He wants to take me dancing, he said. You couldn’t pay me to go dancing on a date. But even if I were open to a long-distance relationship right now, his princess line may have done him in.

Here’s why.
