Are you getting mixed signals from your significant other? Not sure if you’ve found The One? Luckily, you don’t have to look any further than Once Upon a Time for solid relationship advice.
We’ve all been there. One day you’re just a poor housemaid, and the next your fairy godmother puts you in a fancy dress, shoves you in a pumpkin carriage, and whisks you off to the local castle where you dance with a handsome prince who instantly falls in love with you, but you’re not sure if his mom will like you and you set your heart on running away and having adventures and isn’t this all so sudden?
Or, you know, something like that.
Relationships are hard. True love is even harder. How can you make absolutely certain you’ve found your soulmate? That’s where Once Upon a Time comes in. Never again get your signals crossed!
You know he’s The One if…
…he traded his ship for you.
…he always finds you (even when your daughter accidentally disrupts the space-time continuum).
…he loves you even if you turn into a monstrous man-eating beast once a month.
…he doesn’t care that you broke his favorite teacup.
…he doesn’t mind that you were once an evil monarch.
…he willingly shares a body with his once estranged father in order to ensure your safety.
But women can be hard to read, too! What if your interests lay at the other end of the spectrum? Don’t worry, Once Upon a Time has the perfect relationship advice for you, as well.
You know she’s your true love if…
…she entrusts the care of her heart to your protection when her half sister is hellbent on destroying her.
…even after nearly 3 decades apart she still loves you.
…without her you’re grumpy all the time.
…she loves you even if you’ve lied to her over and over and over and over again.
…she literally shares your heart.
There, now don’t you feel better? Go forth into the world armed with this knowledge and find the man or woman willing to do whatever it takes to win your hand. Just be careful his father isn’t The Dark One or her mother isn’t the Queen of Hearts. It might not end so well for you…
