Ah, Disney Princes.
They’re the stuff of Disney legend, and have populated many a happy thought, not to mention countless imaginary boyfriend wishlists. (Don’t deny it).
And it’s not hard to see why.
Dashing and brave, these are men who aren’t afraid to rescue their Disney damsels from danger, or even be rescued by their lady loves when they find themselves in distress.
That being said, there’s a reason certain kinds of love stories live on in fairy tales, mainly because a lot of the pick-up tactics Disney Princes rely on probably wouldn’t work out that well in real life.
Case in point:
Kissing a sleeping stranger isn’t really a good idea unless she’s your girlfriend.
Sneaking up behind someone and surprising them with your beautiful singing voice sounds harmless enough, right? Wrong.
Admitting that you forgot your true love’s face, then subsequently going around the entire kingdom with a single shoe to try and find her is kind of a big fail. Charming, but still.
Offering to share your slime, er mucus, probably won’t win you very many hearts. Even if you do know how to play some mean jazz.
Even if you can pull off a plunging V-neck quite splendidly while making the flute look cool, almost drowning is never ever good. So please, make sure to stay shipshape. Preferably on land.
A wearable beard suit might keep your lady love warm at night, but will most likely be a deal-breaker in real life. Mainly because of all the plugged drains and grooming time.
Breaking and entering might very well be off-putting, no matter how well you do “the smolder.” Just so you know.
