It is quite common for people to feel regret when they miss numerous chances just because of their relationship. For example, they are offered a decent job abroad but do not dare to leave their lover alone. But your single status allows you to make “selfish” decisions without having to care about others. And of course, you can be your true self as you are not being labeled as someone’s “lover,” “spouse,” or “parent.”

All in all, you don’t need to wait for someone to come to complete you. Take up new hobbies, take good care of yourself, surround yourself with supportive friends, and pursue your dream! Of course, life doesn’t consist of 100% of good times, but you can always create your happiness regardless of your marital status.
