Does fate find our perfect partner for us or is it just a matter of finding a suitable specimen within your square mile? Mari Wyn Roberts is 35, works for a TV company in Cardiff and just can't keep a relationship going for more than 2 years. She wants her Mr Perfect but after nearly 20 years of dating she's starting to worry that her ideal man, who's a combination of George Clooney, Johnny Depp and Brad Pitt, doesn't exist. Worst of all, what if one of the 'duds' she was so happy to bin over the years was her 'perfect man' all along? On the other side of the city, Owen, also 35, is looking for love on his terms. There must be a girl out there that's single, intelligent and doesn't want to mother or stifle him? In this comic romantic novel, Mari and Owen's chequered love lives are documented over a period of 20 years; from the first gauche fumbling in a school disco, to college experimentation, to dealing with online dating and partners with children and jealous exes. Owen and Mari's paths keep crossing but will they manage to get it together before the end credits?
