If a guy has been in love with a girl for 15 years but they never seem to be able to get together can he honestly be happy with his new girlfriend?

If he can finally realize that the girl of his dreams is just that, then he has a chance with the new girlfriend. The thing is that if it was going to work out with the dreamgirl, it would have already happened. The critical ingredient is just not there, and hasn't been for 15 years. The guys I've known who have this ideal person in mind seem to never move forward into a serious relationship--I don't know if it provides protection from hurt or what. It does tend to make them into lifelong bachelors, though.
