An ex-colleague has been bewailing her lot in life, she can't find Mr Right, she feels time is running out, she is 35 & wants to start a family. She has had some lovely boyfriends & even got engaged a couple of times, but unfortunately none of these men have actually been perfect. Her ideal man is Mr Darcy, preferably wet from stepping out of the lake!
Now gorgeous as Mr Darcy may have looked wet through, would he really have been easy to live with? I doubt it.
Also as she herself isn't perfect, is anyone? Why does she expect perfection in her partner.
