Tang, who was born in Southwest China's Sichuan province, chose to work in Beijing after returning from studying in South Korea.

"It's ok to live alone, though I will feel a bit lonely sometimes," she said.

The young woman said the empty-nest youth mainly reflects a psychological loneliness; however, added she had a "strong adaptive capacity to live alone in strange environment."

"I like sports and spending my leisure time listening to music, and watching films," Tang said.

"However, I feel it's tiring to make new friends, so I prefer to stay at home rather than socialize on the weekends."
