Long story here, thanks for the ladies who will take the time to read and share their thoughts.
I am 28 and I’ve never been in a serious relationship. I’ve had some flings here and there in uni, but always thought I will end up spontaneously meeting the person I am compatible with by now, the person that would make me want to commit. Most of my friends are either married or in a serious relationship which makes me question my situation.
I know I am still young and that the 30s are the new 20s now. But as I am doing self-reflection I realised I associate being in a relationship with more stability/less me-time/less ambition and need to make sacrifices. So I am afraid there might be more than “I just haven’t met the right person yet” situation. I changed careers and countries twice already in the last 7 years and am probably going to pivot careers and change countries again in a year or 2 since the country I live in right now is not necessarily where I dream of spending the rest of my life at. Every time I start a new role, there’s obviously a learning curve but since I change for completely different fields I need to put in much more time and effort, thus less space to have someone in my life.
I am not meeting much interesting guys atm, nor am I actively looking for a date. I thought I would seriously make efforts to being in a relationship once I find the role/field/city I feel most aligned with but the more I observe myself the more I realise that stability I picture may never happen, or happen in a very long time. Sometimes I wonder if I am missing out on something and wether I am prioritising my career and emotional comfort zone way too much. I do not feel that urge to being in a relationship neither, and still do not know wether I want to have children so I don’t have that pressure.
I could really use an external perspective on my situation and would love to hear your opinion/advice. What would you tell your younger sister if that was her?
P.S : background in structural engineering, pivoted to a Tech data science role, and thinking of switching to project management at some point.
P.S 2 : already talked to a therapist about this. Her opinion was : I don’t look motivated to be in a relationship, maybe I am not ready to be in one. She told me I shouldn’t look to be in a relationship because of FOMO. I should really want to be in one.
