You've Met One of Your Princes!

Please tell us where in the heck you met this guy and when we can send the cloning scientists over! A total royal, this man respects you, his word, and the relationship—three traits that make you feel cared for, grounded and secure. You don't have to spend your Sunday mornings analyzing him over brunch with your girlfriends because he's upfront with his feelings (a sign he has empathy and a strong moral fiber). The fact that he is able to put his ego aside and compromise shows that he truly cares about your feelings and bettering the relationship. Be sure not to take him for granted or mistake his kindness for weakness and always try and reciprocate his efforts! He's the real deal-Congrats!

He's a Suitor -but how suitable is he?

He's not perfect (and that's OK) but you have to ask yourself an important question. Is he transitioning from his single life into a relationship with you or are you simply standing in the second spot (behind his mother/friends/ex) waiting for him to bring you to the forefront of his life? Being in a relationship means allowing for an equal partnership which encourages individuality but also respects the fact that we have now chosen to think about and respect someone else as we do ourselves. How can you build trust and strengthen bonds when you are wondering where you stand? Have a chat with him and tell him you're ready to move forward. His reaction will let you know if it's time to move on.

You've found a royal alright! A Royal Disaster!

This guy is 100% TOAD. Self-centered, arrogant and totally disrespectful, he leaves you feeling more frustrated than fabulous which is something no maiden deserves. These are the guys who call you late night for booty calls; make excuses as to why they have to let you down (again!) and who do not value your time, feelings or emotional investment in them. Whatever the reason he's in this situation (I call it a situation because it's certainly not a relationship) he's not there because he cares about you. You'd fare better alone. Cut the strings that are stringing you along and remember that if you are busy analyzing him- he's not thinking about you.
