There’s someone I’m related to (not either of my parents, and that’s as much identifying info as I’ll give) who was engaged when both parties were 18/19-ish. Both of the people involved are good people, but something about their relationship brought out the very worst in each other. The engagement ended, much to the relief of both of their families.
Flash forward to just a few years ago. The one who I’m not related to was encountered by another member of my family. In short, both of these people have had great lives, happy marriages, kids, the whole “American dream”— but not together. They were both ‘right’ for someone else… but horribly horribly WRONG for each other.
Sometimes I hold out hope that this is the story that Glee’s trying to tell with Klaine. Most of the time, no… but sometimes. *sigh*
