20+ yrs alone + given covid situation, I feel like my chances are slipping away and I’ll be single forever.
Hi Im a graduating mid-twenties(M) student here. Im rather shy/introverted in nature which led me to have only about 2-3 close friends. I do enjoy my solitude life but lately, Im feeling more and more lonely. People around me are getting attached, planning BTOs, etc. It scares me that I’ll be left all alone, without anyone to share my future, my emotions or goals.
I’ll be graduating and working soon, and many around me will probably be older adults or people who are already married. Plus, given the current covid situation, social interactions are so hard to come by. People often say it will come naturally and we should not rush it, I understand but, in a blink, 4 years of Uni is going to be over.
I regretted chasing after grades and sacrificed my social life. Currently, I am trying to join as many clubs and explore doing what I love, but nothing seems to work, and I get less and less hopeful.
It might be too late but I feel like this window of opportunity might have already closed. Given these circumstances, I really do feel like my pool is getting smaller and my chances are slipping away.
What should I do now? Thank you for hearing my rant I really appreciate the time and comments, btw, I have not tried apps given the number of horror stories I’ve read.
