If status is stable in terms of financial and emotional aspects there will be no reason for a single woman or man to find his/her lifetime partner the soonest possible. Just this morning I advise my co-teacher a single lady whose age is 25 to find her partner the soonest... because you will find joy seeing your children succeed professionally while you are still in your mid 40s. Just this morning, also I heard that one of the prettiest teacher in our school married a Canadian man and leave Philippines today. They said that she found her better half in edmonton chat rooms. What a destiny for her finding her true love. I guess everyone can as long as their heart is always open when someone knocks. Don't be too obsessed by your career. Give yourself a break and fall in love! Just like everyone.
