Today is my birthday......

I was born in 1988,so today is my 28th birthday. But actually I am not happy....

After being 25 years old, I started to hate birthdays, they remind me that I become older and older......

I got some gifts from my workmates this morning, with very nice purple color packing. They wrote me a gift card: "Wish you could find your true love and live happily forever."

Well, all of them are happily married,with a good husband ,a cute baby.I feel a little sad and envy.There was once I was so closed to marriage. But for some reasons.....and now I am single again.

I have been working outside of my country for almost 6 years and  just came back to China this year. I've got many friends when working abroad and I have never thought of being too old to marry. But in China,mostly girls get married at their 25th and become a mother in 27th. Apparently now I am way too late to do so.....

I don't know what I should do.Go find someone get married as soon as possible  ? Waiting some "true love" come to my life? Or I should work abroad again(because I feel more comfortable)?

Girls at my age,any decision seems so important.

Please leave me some comments.Maybe your words can give me a hint?

You shouldn't see being single as a bad thing. If anything, it's the most liberating experience. With kids, you don't get to travel as often or do things you truly enjoy. As for the message in the card that says "Wish you could find your true love..." is a bit tasteless as it implies you need another person to make you happy. The only person who can make you happy is YOU. 

But anyways happy birthday! And if it makes you feel any better, we are all getting older too! :)

Don't compare with others, it's not all that relevant. Instead you could go and look up the TED talk "how I hacked online dating" actually I just did that for you a talk by Amy Webb and you'll probably feel much better after having seen her talk. Anyway, my mum married at age 30.

Hi dear! In the first,  I want wish you only the best. Why so sad? I will ask this. Are you happy now? The felicity no is be married, many people is very, very happy single. The really important here, is your feelings, if you are happy, the other else no matter. 

Best regards!
