I Am Single

    I like being single. When you're in a long term

    relationship, it gets annoying. They nag you all the time, never leave you alone, wanna touch you, eat your food, take over the bed, buy dumb stuff, take over the TV, and generally annoy the **** out of you. Short term relationships are just pointless.

    It's been 3 years since an actual relationship

    has occurred in my life. Trust me, I've tried. Countless no shows on dates. Countless "you're like my little sister"s. Endless, "So your friend is single?"s. I guess sometimes life steers you in another direction. It's just too bad my direction doesn't fall with a significant...

    desperate. Stop judging it's not good for the soul.

    It makes me sad that

    so many of the people in this group are 13-15 years old and are desperately looking for someone. Please, do not waste your time. Build your personalities and self-esteem before going into a relationship. Do not look for love because you are lonely.... I made that mistake and it...

    yeah so ive learned that

    if a girl breaks up with u after college ends and u see there was a pattern to it with previous guys she was with, then you know u were used. and she never really cared. no woman will ever have me again and i will make sure of that.

    I never used to worry about it,

    but now that I'm almost 18 I find myself craving intimacy with a girl more than anything else. I'm not talking about just sex either. I'm talking about a girl that I can enjoy cuddling and watching movies with. A girl that doesn't mind listening to what I have to say about...

    Things You Should Never Say To Someone Who’s Single

    I just discovered a blog called "Single Dad Laughing". He's brilliant. I thought I'd share one of his posts about the dumb things people say when you tell them you're single... I laughed so hard when I read it I had tears in my eyes. So, why are you single?Ummm, maybe because I...

    There are many lessons in life

    I'm single yes but I'm not lonely.

    I always see everyone so quick to jump in a relationship. Why? Take your time and find the right person. The first person isn't always the right person so it's okay to be cautious at first.

    This has been irking me

    for some time: Why does everyone in this group sound so miserable with being single? When you are single, you have so much more freedom. You do not have to share a bed or worry about how your career choice/etc affects someone else. Being single is nothing to be ashamed about...

    Confessions Of A Single Gal

    Here is a little insight into a girl’s perspective on being single. As we all know, being single especially after a certain age, is looked down upon, rather than admired. Because let’s face it, having standards and meeting them, is much harder than just settling for the next...

    I wonder if I'll find the special somebody on

    here?? Or maybe, I already have. Why am I single? Is it because I have standards, so that makes me "picky"? Or maybe I am too young and it's all in God's timing. And I don't mean to question that perfect timing, but I can't help but be impatient. I'm not to the point of longing...

    It has been a year now.

    Sometimes when I think of it, I feel glad, because I don't have to worry and I don't feel tired and go to dates or places that I don't like. I can spend money for myself. I have all the time I need. No pressure. No responsibilities. Can sleep all day. Can watch movies alone...

    You don' realize how deafening the silence will

    be until you are enduring it. Today, a very special person left my life. And it left a gaping hole. I want to add more, but it is still so fresh and so raw and I'm emotionally exhausted. I need to rest. Tomorrow. The silence is deafening.

    single lately. It’s been less lonely and more rewarding than I thought it would be. I’ve been single for a little over a year now. Before that I was almost non-stop in relationships, between my 15th and my 18th. There’s so much more freedom in being solitude. It has left...
