I disagree. I don't think anyone knows what they want. Your viewing life as
a static journey. It isn't. Your needs are constantly changing. If your
partner can change with you wonderful. If not, it's adios. Every past
girlfriend I have ever ran into, I always wonder what I saw in that person.
Of course I remember the good times, but they have always to me been at
that point stranger that I wouldn't stop and talk to.
