Stay independent. I know when you are on your own you really want someone to take care of your etc. But you don't want to be trapped or taken advantage of. Even if you do get married always have a place you can go if things go bad. Like a friend or even a second apartment.
Most normal women can always visit their parents. But you don't. The last thing you need is a boyfriend or husband threatening to throw you out.
1. Always have your own apartment.
2. Never move in with a guy. Stay independent.
3. Earn your own money and save in case of emergency.
Remember that you deserve better.
