Although it’s been proven that Disney has done some real damage to the female psyche, I don’t think it’s a negative thing to be taught to believe in love. No prince is going to show up with a horse and carriage and take you away from your god awful family and shower you in presents, but it’s possible to be able to find someone who will treat you well and stick it out with you through the good and the bad. There could be more than one of these people, but it’s possible.
According to a recent article in The Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, there a way to tell if you are your boo are going to make it. It’s called the “forecast model,” and it essentially states that if you believe the two of you will stay together, then you will.
Are you kidding? Faith, trust, and pixie dust are going to keep me and my Prince Charming together? No timeline, no nothing? It seems like such a simple idea that it’s hard to believe that it had to be backed by any sort of science. Just convince yourself you will stay together, and viola, ring by spring.
So ladies, if there is anything to take away from this article, it’s to stay crazy. Keep that wedding Pinterest board updated, keep practicing your signature with his last name, and keep leaving more and more shit at his place so that eventually you are basically moved in. Sing a song when you’re sad and text him 13 times in a row when you get in a fight. If a dream is a wish your heart makes, then love is a wish your brain makes..
