I'm about to leave my long term boyfriend for a few reasons (mostly just simple incompatibility). Honestly I'm scared to be single after this long. I know there are a lot of people older than me, who have been in relationships much longer, who have no trouble finding someone else afterwards. But still, change is daunting. And what if reenter the dating world and realize how good I had it here?
I guess I'm just looking for reassurance that there are good, decent single men in their mid 20s (seems like everyone's marrying young nowadays). Men who are kind and fun and responsible and who appreciate a sensitive, grounded girl with a quirky sense of humor.

I would not worry in the slightest, in fact I would take lots of time to yourself now before moving on. No one wants to rush into a relationship because they fear being alone...
I am 24 and appreciate all those things, and I think I am decent enough. It seems like everyone is getting married, but I think it is more of just a shock how many people do get married right out of school, but it is a small percent, social media just throws it in your face more than the single people do.
I think your only issue, is now you have to contend with the many people who are single because they WANT to be, such as myself. But I would say still even more guys want relationships than compared to those who do not and or married.1

Don't worry you will be fine but first let yourself heal for the breakup and just have fun being single.. do things on your bucket list you weren't able to do while with him. Enjoy life! Yes you will find someone and yes there is still good guys out there. Do not stay in a relationship just because you are afraid of being alone. Trust me you will feel such a sense of freedom when you do. Speaking from experience I was with someone for 8 years broke up 2.5 years ago at the age of 26 . I've been with my boyfriend 2 years now and he is amazing and I'm happy. Best of luck!1
