"I want someone who makes me feel like a princess!"

So, you never want to make your own decisions, want to be given a strict set of rules and regulations to adhere to for the rest of your life, you’ll never be able to do anything scandalous (read: fun) and chances are you probably won’t be able to marry for love. 

I can treat you like that if you like. 

I mean, there are upsides to being a princess I guess. You could travel around and work for charities and meet all sorts of interesting people. But why would you want me to treat you like a piece of meat, used to persuade people to donate to charity? 

I’d much rather treat you like a regular person. I’ll cook you dinner if you want me to, or we can share the cooking if you think I’m inept in the kitchen. I’ll do my share of housework but since you’re a princess I guess you don’t have to do housework but I don’t really think it’s fair if I do it all, so maybe we could share that too? 

To expect me to treat you like a princess is absurd. To want to be treated like a princess is baffling. Princesses don’t get to live their own lives, they get to live as an extension of the monarchy who are constantly under scrutiny. If you want me to wake you up and present you with a plan of the events you’re attending that day along with a cup of tea, I will. But I don’t understand why you’d want me to choose what you get to do with your time. 

I’d much rather choose what we do together, and when we go and do it. It’s nice to have some lazy days together, curled up watching a film or just sat reading together. 

When you say you want to be treated like a princess, the implication is that you don’t want to be given the choice to do as you please. I won’t treat you like a princess, I’ll treat you as an equal.
