Like many other little girls, I was read fairy tales as a child. I also watched Disney movies which led me to believe that the handsome Prince, or the knight in shining armour would whisk me away to a life of sunshine, birds chirping happily in the trees and a world where fat days just don't exist.
Fast forward 20 years and you get, well, reality. The handsome Prince and knight in shining armour either forgot me, or were too stubborn to switch on their SatNav to find my house.
That said, that doesn't mean I didn't get one. I suppose my love life runs along the lines of Shrek! No, no, my boyfriend is not a green, overweight ogre. I just mean that I was looking for what I thought I wanted and found something unexpected.
A lot of women refuse to look outside of their "man checklist" when they are trying to find a date, but they run the risk of missing out on the perfect person just for the sake of a tiny flaw.
