In your 30s, you will learn that it's okay to be alone. You don't need to be in a relationship to be happy. This doesn't mean you're necessarily lonely.

It just means you're not in a relationship right now. And that's okay.
In your 30s, you will also learn that not everyone in your life needs to be a friend. It's okay to have Acquaintances and people who are just casual friends.
