You’re going to make wedding plans with a guy you don’t end up marrying.
You’re going to realize that the one person you thought was perfect, whether it’s your mom, your sister, your husband, your girlfriend, your favorite uncle, your grandfather, they all have an imperfection.
You’re going to hate the person you were in love with at one point.
