Men and women all have their own 'dream' partners, but this, Louanne says, is simply a fantasy.
'You can meet people, you are just stuck on that part of the mouse wheel.'According to Louanne, 'deserve levels' that are too high can hold you back from meeting the right people.

It doesn’t matter how much you say you want it, you don’t get it and you won’t get it because you don’t really want it.
