I won't disagree with this. Sometimes we want something so badly, we think we have it. When I look back at the dude I was "supposed" to marry (before you ask - no, not SJ. This was years and years ago), I thank my lucky stars that I never did. Cuz I would've gone through with it; I fooled myself. Wonder what the drunk did with my ring. Meh.
Anyways... I still hope to one day be married with kids. I do. But you're right - you have to find someone who wants the same things as you. The dumbest thing anyone can do is fool themselves. And it happens way too often.
