Most men — 74% — and women — 71% — share this belief in finding the perfect partner.

    I do not believe in destiny. It’s God’s will that I believe in. We have a choice to go to the path we want, but there is someone who will guide us to the right path that He had made for us. We are given choices and it is up for us to do what we think is right. But in the end, we will fall in His plans.
