In Pursuit Of Happily Ever After: As a single girl, actively pursue an aggressive life of ministry, learning, and serving.
A Caution: Be patient and wait upon the Lord (and your man).

Your ministry should be to your family and younger girls. We have to set a virtuous example for those younger girls. They look up to us and are counting on us to influence them in an appropriate and righteous way. So, I suggest examining your actions, motives and attitudes. You can push them towards Christ or towards the Devil. You have a choice to let the Lord use you or not. It would be wrong to hide your light under a bushel. Our light is supposed to shine for all to see.
Matthew 5:16, Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
Never quit learning. It is good to always be learning. With learning our thinking should change and how we handle situations. We'll never know it all but knowledge leads to wisdom.
Serving others is also important. Jesus is a perfect example of that. We should have a servants heart. For without it how then will we be willing to serve the Lord? By serving others you become humble. Remember J-O-Y( Jesus, Others, You) in that exact order.
Note: Your man may be slow in coming into your life but that just means the Lord is saying that it isn't time for either of you. You still have some growing and learning to do in order to be ready for that exact moment. Don't lose heart. Keep your head down and be busy doing what you're supposed to be doing. And remember you already have a Beloved and that is Jesus Christ. Let Him fill the place of husband. You can say, "My Beloved is mine!"
Haven of Rest by the Gloryland Girls (Here's a beloved hymn to enjoy. One of my most favourite hymns. It is so precious to me.)
I hope this is an encouragement to y'all. May the Lord bless you.
My Beloved Jesus is Mine,
