All eyes are on England this month as Prince Harry ties the knot with Meghan Markle! While royal wedding watchers will be glued to every detail, singles may be wondering how they can find their own real-life “Prince Charming”.

Professional Matchmaker Julie Amann recently visited the set of WTMJ’s “Ask The Expert” to dish on how to attract a real-life version of your perfect partner without getting lost in the fairytale.

Does “Prince Charming” really exist?
While it worked for Meghan and Duchess Kate, let’s be real -- many of us have kissed our fair share of ‘frogs’ looking for Mr. or Mrs. Right. While daters are looking for their perfect partner, it’s important not to get caught up in the fairytale. Beware of looking for someone who checks every box on their list. The reality is, people are more complicated than that, and singles should focus on compatibility, not perfection.

How can daters create realistic expectations without compromising too much -- and still find the person who’s right for them?

Forget the Fairytale
Prince Harry probably isn’t perfect in real life, so forget the fairytale! This can be tough, especially if you’re a romantic -- but all relationships take work, and people aren’t characters in a movie. Visualizing an ideal mate may help you figure out what you’re looking for in a relationship, but it can also prevent you from connecting with a real person. Thank goodness, you don’t have to be perfect, and neither does your future partner.
It’s fun to dream big, but real love is action not fantasy.

Look before You Leap
After you ditch the fairytale ideal, be sure you say yes to opportunities for dates, even if someone doesn’t tick every box on your list, they could still end up being a great match for you. Then focus on really getting to know the other person and give yourself enough time to find out if you are truly compatible before either calling it quits or labeling them “The One”.

Be Your Own Hero
One of the traps of looking for “Prince Charming” is thinking that someone else can rescue you from an unhappy life. We are all responsible for our own happiness! Before you can look for Prince Charming, you need to love yourself and be your own hero. That means taking care of yourself physically, emotionally and creating a life you love. Then you’ll begin to attract the right people with your confidence. Ultimately, the goal is for two healthy and happy people to make each other’s lives better.

Where should singles look for their version of “Prince Charming” in the real world?
If you’ve been disappointed with your dates, you may need to switch things up! If you still haven’t met that perfect person at the gym, the grocery store or your favorite coffee shop, it’s time to try a new approach. Break out of your comfort zone and go new places. Push yourself to start up conversations and try new experiences. You never know who you might connect with when you do that.
