Being really, really attractive makes love easy
Snow White showed us that even if you and your crush have never spoken, have nothing in common and don’t know each other’s aspirations, you're still guaranteed success if you lie very still with lipstick on. Soon enough, he'll be racing over to kiss you. It all comes down to being seriously good-looking (and patient).
Just don’t go accepting food from other women who are jealous of your sheer fitness. NOTHING GOOD WILL COME OF IT.
If there is something wrong with your boyfriend, you can change them
Belle is a girl that knows how to do that whole "I just wanna fix him" shizzle.
Seriously, take a hint from her. You don’t have to worry if your fella wears jeans slightly too short for him, has a ponytail or honestly thinks corduroy is making a come back, because you can change all of that, no problem. Just give him the love and attention he needs, and before long he’ll be the hunk that dreams are made of! Perseverance girls.
Also, don’t worry if he kidnaps you and locks you away from your loved ones. Just roll with it.
Wear a hot dress, seduce a rich guy and stop working - forever!
Sick of working all of those bar jobs? Stuck in a call center? Luckily, as long as you have a fairy godmother (ahem, credit card) and a pretty face, snagging the man of your dreams who has more money than sense should be a breeze. It all comes down to wearing the right look-at-me dress and FM shoes. Cinderella was no fool.
We love a Disney happy ending.
Let the man do the hard work – you just take it easy
Dating is so difficult these days. So if your thumb is tired from Tinder, don't lose hope. One day your Prince will come. In the meantime, make like Princess Aurora: have a little nap and wait for him.
He’ll arrive eventually, even if he has to get past a forest of thorns, a dragon, molten lava, blah blah blah. Not your problem.
Don’t do what daddy says
If he doesn’t have enough money to buy bread, but has a good sense of humor and a squat with a wonderful view, then don’t write him off. You never know, he might get lucky and win the lottery.
As Princess Jasmine showed us, you don't have to be forced into a marriage your daddy approves of. Now this one we actually agree with!
It's ok to change your appearance for a guy
Ariel is a girl who knows her own mind. Unfortunately, when this girl's in love she makes crazy decisions. Like changing her body, giving up her right to a voice and leaving her family behind in order to flirt with a guy she's only met when he was unconscious. Still, it all worked out in the end.
So, if he prefers you blonde to brunette, make like Ariel and just change the way you look to make him happy.
Sometimes ditching your boy will be better for both of you
As Disney employed more women, the princesses started to be a bit more kick ass. Finally, some love life lessons we can actually refer to in real life!
In Pocahontas, we learned that if your boyfriend wants you to move to the other side of the world with him, sometimes it’s okay just to say no, thanks for the offer, goodbye and give him some sweets for the trip. Relationships don’t always work out the way you’d planned, but you’ll always have the memories!
Accept that you'll have to kiss a few frogs to find your prince
You will snag that wonderful man who will help finance your restaurant opening, but it might take time and you may have to be slightly belittled for this to happen. Tiana got what she wanted - the hard way.
Respect your boyfriend’s choice of friends
This love lesson from Frozen is actually pretty true to life, so take notes. If your boyfriend has strange friends, sometimes you're just gonna have to accept them.
Hell, if he wants to hang around with a reindeer, put on a voice for him and sing duets with himself, for goodness sake let him! Everyone has their quirky habits, and his are sort of charming. Plus, all you need to do is buy some carrots, and you’ve won over his friend. Job done.
Why want a boyfriend when you can be a sassy independent woman?!
What's this? A Disney princess that's happily single? Anyone would think it was the 21st century! Princess Merida made us realize that no one needs romance when you have a horse, a bow and arrow, and the Scottish countryside. NO ONE! Enjoy the single life; no one is tying you down!
