As young adults get to a certain age, it seems as if all their friends and cousins are getting married or making a commitment to a long term relationship. They suddenly find they are the only person without a partner, and they are designated as the last single person standing. This is a lonely feeling, and friends and family do their best to help. Everyone seems to know someone else who is single, and the match making begins. This is not always a good time for a single person because they feel forced to find a partner.
Being the last unattached person is not always a proud moment. Some people feel there is a lack of commitment to being an adult, and other people see it as failure to mature properly. No matter the reason that person is the last to still be single, it is a difficult time and they need the love and understanding of family and friends.
