For many, being single is a station of life they have accepted and become comfortable with. However, they need to consider special circumstances unique to them when planning their retirement. 

Two singles share with FocusM how they deal with such issues.

WL Kit, COO of property education company 
As the chief operating officer (COO) of property education company Smart Financing, Kit finds it difficult to find a companion who fully supports and accepts her for who she is.

“Maybe I am too strong, stubborn and a bit of a perfectionist. I don’t want to change in that way. I also look for an equal partnership, someone who doesn’t expect me to do all the work,” she says. 

However, the 31-year-old relishes the freedom to make her own financial decisions. “There are no restrictions on what I want to do. I don’t have to justify if I buy the wrong things and shoulder wrong decisions made by my partner.”
