Being single never used to phase me, but now I think I want a relationship

DEAR DEIDRE: BEING single never used to bother me. But now, watching all my friends tie the knot and settle down makes me think I’d like that too.

I’m 28, male and have been single for the past four years.

I had one serious relationship with a guy at university but it fizzled out when we graduated and moved back home.

I’ve really enjoyed the past couple of years and grown to love my own company.

I like the freedom of being able to do what I want, when I want.

But I’ve got three weddings this year and I’m always ticking “no” to a plus one.

How do you meet someone?

I’ve heard apps are the way forward but I’m not interested in just a casual hook-up.

DEIDRE SAYS: Please try not to compare yourself to your friends.

People meet “the one” at different points, and you still have plenty of time to find the right person.

Long and loving relationships are usually based on friendship, so focus on widening your friendship circle first.
