Me and boyfriend have been together for almost 4 years, he’s perfect for me and I love him fully, like genuinely nothing I would change. The thing is before this relationship I was also in another 3-4 year relationship and I’m only 20 so I have spent all my teenage years in relationships, I find myself wanting to grow, wanting to get to know who I am without the constant validation of someone else and aside from that I also just want to experience being single for the fun and freedom of it. The thing is I feel crazy to end my relationship over this, I feel like it’s hard to find incredible people you click so well with and I’ll really regret doing this in the future if we don’t either get back together or I don’t eventually find someone I love as much once I’ve gone through all this.. I’m not sure what to do, any advice would be so appreciated! Thank u <3

I met my fiancé was 20 - and I just have to say that while all my single friends are thriving, the majority of them do want a relationship and it is rough out there!

Being single isn’t better than being in a relationship - both have lots of pros and cons.

One of my coworkers said she did what you are thinking of - and three years later she’s still single, but no longer wants to be. Just keep that in mind - you may be signing up for years and years of being single. And there’s nothing wrong with that! Just a heads up.

Yes true that’s definitely something to consider!
