I stayed single for (most of) nursing school. Looking back, I'm glad that happened to me. Having support is great, but a relationship also comes with its own challenges and nursing school is a challenge in and of itself. I feel you. There were times when I was really happy--and there are times now when I recognize the difference between being single and tied down. I'm in an interesting place of just 'talking' to someone right now. It's what it is. I know that I needed time to get my life together, and I can't critique anybody else or invalidate any feelings here, but it worked decently for me. I got my degree and now I feel like I have infinite time to navigate everything else. Good for you, OP.
