Be Realistic. Most fairytale stories do not have a happy ending. If they sound
perfect fit , it does not necessarily mean send the wedding Invitations out yet.

potential candidate on your list. Do not be put off.
I know they say that there are plenty of fish in the sea but make sure you
choose wisely anyway.
