    Should I feel am running out of time because at 28 am still single?

    I have been into an 8 year relationship that led to a broken heart. Sadly, I tried meeting and dating new guys but I seem to be in a rut.

    What? 28 is still young.
    Is it the wedding ring you want or do you genuinely want a husband-baby-family? Because if it is the former, you need to tread v carefully or else you're going to attract the wrong person... However, if it is the latter you desire ie a family, breathe, work on yourself a bit more and continue to socialise.

    Am choosing the latter, I just get really bothered when married friends tease me for being single. I can't explain to them that for the first time in 8 long years I could do what ever I wanted and go to places I never been before without worrying I have partner I would be leaving behind.

    I wouldn't sweat it. Go out and see the world and succeed in your other goals in life. You'll probably meet someone along the way.

    A lot has changed in the dating world after being in an 8 year relationship. I applaud the fact that you have moved forward to date new guys but you also have to account for the fact that you've been in a comfortable relationship for a long period of time and it makes it harder to get to know new people after that period of time. To get out of the rut, I advise you to expand your options as well and look into online dating sites such as Match.com, consider attending speed dating events, and just look to be more social without the pressure of meeting people. Expand your options, keep a positive attitude and the right man will come along for you.

    You're still young, especially these days, people don't get married as young as they used to.  Everyone has a different timetable.  Enjoy being single right now.  Pursue your dreams and continue to date other men.  When the time is right, you will meet the "right" one.  God bless you on your journey!:-)
