If a man/woman had all the qualities you desired, would you marry that person, even if you were not in love with him/her?
if they had all the qualities you desired, wouldnt it be hard to not fall in love with that person?
is there not a difference between what you desire and what you need though?
I would not marry them. Just because the person is “perfect” for you does NOT mean you automatically will fall in love..if only love were that easy! Ha

"It’s dark because you are trying too hard. Lightly child, lightly. Learn to do everything lightly. Yes, feel lightly even though you’re feeling deeply. Just lightly let things happen and lightly cope with them. I was so preposterously serious in those days… Lightly, lightly – it’s the best advice ever given me…So throw away your baggage and go forward. There are quicksands all about you, sucking at your feet, trying to suck you down into fear and self-pity and despair. That’s why you must walk so lightly. Lightly my darling…"
