I think i am doing precisely the opposite. The man's dreams will be crushed when he is sat there thinking "I could have done better" which will inevitably happened and learning to realise that settling down with your boring old woman becomes just as mundane as your crappy old car or your dead end job, another avenue of mystery and exploration that has been blocked off and leads you closer and closer into thinking "why the hell do I get up in a morning?". At least if you're single you can always pretend in your mind that there is the chance of meeting mrs. perfect, even if you know it's not going to actually happen really.
