Wanted: A 2012 Romantic Ballad Song Performed by Hunter Hayes


The word love is often heard in school, home, or even in our workplace. Thus, talking about love has something to do with a lifetime commitment, so we want to be the perfect person for our partners. Do you agree? Some of us think that we already know how to manage a relationship successfully, but why do we still fail to have one healthy and successful relationship?

The reason may be because of our personality. Having a successful relationship has no formula, but always remember that the main reason why we enter into a relationship is that we believe that the person we have now is not the same person we loved before. The personality of the person is not determined by his/her looks instead it is based on how he/she treats the person whom he/she loves. Let me introduce to you the song “Wanted,” performed by the one and only, Hunter Hayes. Surely, you can relate to this song.
