Finding an ideal life partner is tough, some even call it impossible. And I’m not being a pessimist here, but let’s face it: over a lifetime, you meet a bunch of people who turn out to be wrong choices. While growing up, I used to idolise picture-perfect couples who have been with each other for ages. But once you enter adulthood, reality hits you right in the face.

You know the drill. “Oh, he has moved on already? Looks like his ex didn’t mean much to him after all.” “They seem so happy in all their posts.
