Hello, so I finished university, Bachelors, masters and PhD and now that I'm 29 and I am still single because my previous relationships in university all failed due to the circumstances. I'm just wondering what happened to everyones uni relationships after they graduated? Just curious.

firstly, it was long distance. secondly, my partner simply fell out of love. he tried to justify it by saying "it is because of the circumstances we are in". but i knew it was a lie because he stopped loving me long time back - i could feel that whenever i was with him during the last months we spent together. i was heartbroken because i loved him immensely and never wanted to leave him.

Gf cheated not long after i finished uni, so that wasn't great.
Took a lot of months to fix myself, and been single since.
It gets much harder to meet people after uni, unless you're actively involved in commitments like sports or societies.

Why did it become long distance? Did you move to different areas after you graduated?

Did you guys move to the same city after graduation? And I agree that it is harder to meet people. I haven't met many people since I graduated my master's in 2017.

Nah, she went back to her city as did I.
Fortunately the distance wasn't the issue.
I just don't like cheaters.

That seems quite common after my long time in university, I have seen it happen so much.

I didn't find that at all, though I wasn't exactly a social butterfly at uni. I found being exposed to a much wider range of people, in terms of ages and backgrounds, made my social life more interesting than it had been at uni.

where did you go to meet them? Also are you talking about pre-COVID?

Yes, I'm talking pre-Covid. I found that in the outside world one network links with another network, so doing sports (for example) with people from work might lead to meeting some of their friends, which would then lead to further connections. Living alone rather than with others also made it much easier to invite people over for a meal/drink/film. That wouldn't be an option for most graduates in London because of the cost, but it's quite normal in many UK cities.

Another point is related to age. In your mid to late twenties, you have a fairly big potential dating pool. Maybe that's more relevant for men interested in women.
