Does following your heart always mean following a man?

I recently read an article where X-Files actress, Gillian Anderson,talked about her private life and her regret at putting love first. She's hoping her 18-year old daughter, Piper, doesn't make the same mistake and gave her some good advice. She said, "Right now my daughter’s planning a gap year and I’m hoping she will properly explore the world, but I keep thinking what happens if she meets somebody and that somebody lives somewhere else and she decides that actually what she wants to do is be with that person and go and start having kids.  I’m encouraging her to follow her heart in big things rather than following men. The amount of time wasted on that… ridiculous."

Do you agree with her advice to follow your heart in the big things, and make the most of your life before you're ready to settle down, or do you think following your heart means following a man?
