Finding out Patrick Dempsey married his hairdresser made me set my dating standards sky-high.

We’ve all found ourselves fantasizing about what it would be like for our favorite celebrities to fall in love with us at least once in our lifetime.  Some of us even take it as far as writing Wattpad “Imagine” stories to create a more visual scenario.

What if you found out that there were actually people out there living your dream? The truth is… there are.

Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton is even said to have had posters of Prince William in her boarding school dorm years before marrying him. (Alexa, play “Congratulations” by Post Malone.)
