I Am Single and Don't Know Why

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 215 People

    Used To

    Maybe I offend the delicate sensibilities of the female gender at large, maybe I am too nice, too good or too honest and open. I really could not tell you why I am still single. Some would say I am aggressive, whereas I would call it ambitious and determined. Others will say - I...

    I'm a good guy. I'm nice,

    I'm caring, I'm funny, I'm giving, I'm living, I can be intimate, I don't crave sex 24/7, I love kisses, tight hugs, and cuddling, I give all I am if I love you, and lastly, I've been told somewhat frequently I'm not too bad looking by friends, and insanely damn hot by ex...

    Want To Know

    I would love for people to tell me upfront what they want to accomplish rather than leave me hanging and disappointed;all it leads to is future discouragement. If they don't want to communicate to let me know and not forever wondering.

    I Feel Like I Should Quit Looking For My Soul Mate

    I don't understand why life can be so silly! I have been blessed in some ways and yet feel like I have also been cursed. I fell so in love in high school and married my high school sweetheart. I gave him a son and daughter. We were married for 13 years, however, i discovered he...

    I Don't Know Why...

    There's a common thought that if your thirty-whatever years old, never married, single and have no kids, there must be something wrong with you.  Well, that's me, and that's probably a bunch of people on here too, I don't know. I feel so sad I'm off to see my doctor...

    "Too Together..." Um, Ok

    That's what I've had people say to me, that I'm too "together" for guys and they're intimidated. I've had people say to me that men are intimidated when a woman is smarter than them or when she shows that she's independent. To me, that's completely insane. But I suppose that's...
