The person who will show them what raw, pure, once-in-a-lifetime kind of love feels like.
But, as the saying goes you’ll have to kiss a lot of frogs before you find your prince. Before you find your forever person and have the best relationship of your life, you’ll have to date the wrong person first and maybe even have your heart broken a couple of times.
