    I Am Married But...

    I was checking one of the stories one of my circle friends wrote here and went to the title page...there it was every one of the authors on this page has a cat as a icon. I just thought it was funny because of the "old cat lady" and the forum is I dont think I will ever...

    And why do I think that?

    Because I have no desire to. I know a few couples who are utterly miserable in their marriage and I don't want to take the chance of that happening to me.

    You Get Used To Being Alone

    I've been alone for so long that I really wouldn't know how to act if I ever found someone I fell in love with. Don't get me wrong, I deeply admire married people who've stayed together through the good times and bad. My parents did it. So did both sets of my grandparents. I...

    Doubt It

    I don't know I just doubt that I ever will... Maybe it's just because I'm young. My mum always told me "you marry your father" = Her dad was an alcoholic and she married one after she promised herself she never would. Maybe that's why. But if I fall...

    It's Just Not Going to Happen, Is It?

    It looks like it that I will never get married.  Firstly, there is no man to talk about - I have been single for the past 5 years.  Next, I am at crossroads where career/job is concerned.  It's all a blur for me right now and it really is frustrating.  I never...

    I Highly Doubt It...

    that I will ever get married. Today, one of my friends got married. She was beautiful, but I couldn't help but think that I wanted to be where she is. I want someone to love me as much as her husband loves her. I want to wear a wedding dress and be the center of attention for one...

    Sometimes

    I  always think about getting married, what i would wear, what my "groom" would look  like and even what song would play. I can  imagine it happening and do imgine it a lot... just doubt anyone would want to marry me.

    In My Culture The Marriages Are Arranged.

    If I find a guy I like within my culture then I can marry him, but if I don't then I will most likely get married but the marriage will be arranged. I don't want to get married because of this. I'll be miserable. I just have a real negative mentality when it comes to love. I'm...

    After all my relationships, crushes and so I came to conclusion I don't want to get married. Men used me too much. Everything has to evolve around them. Loneliness is hard, but at least it's my life I'm living. Hope I'll manage to earn enough money to support myself cause it's...

    I haven't got a boyfriend

    since 3 years ago. It's not because I haven't moved on because trust me, my life has nothing to do with him anymore. It's not that I never find anyone attractive either. But I guess it has something to do with that as well. I mean, I get attracted easily but then I easily back...

    Doesn't Bother Me

    Marriage, no marriage, whatever. As an asexual I do not require sex, and beyond that marriage would bring companionship, and I am independent enough not to require that either.

    I Really Don't Want To Either

    Perhaps it's because I haven't met the 'right person' yet. I'm in no hurry to meet him either. I like dating though, meeting and getting to know new people. It doesn't get repetitive for me because every guy is different. I'm afraid of getting bored once I get into a...

    Men are just much afraid of me - but the true reason is that they are not complete ENOUGH to deal with me properly. I am very gentle, tender and passionate with the right one, I am a true woman to its most inner depths, and much much more THAN most of the women, I ...

    because I really don't see the point.  Even when a relationship is going well, marriage doesn't seem to make it better - usually it's the opposite!  Plus I see very view of examples of people who stay HAPPILY married for long periods of time.  I'd rather be in an...

    I Doubt It!

    I can't even picture being in love, living with someone happily, being married. I get lonely but I just don't see it ever happening for me. I don't think I am able to trust someone on that level. Maybe someday I'll be proven wrong!
