Relationships in 2021
I am a Fire Tiger, born July 1986. I have had so few relationships (partner wise) during my adult life and feeling really hopeless that I’ll be alone forever. Feeling especially sad about turning 35 this year. Trying to find a partner during these challenging times makes things all the more difficult. Any thoughts on finding love this year?!
