    I want to stay positive

    and my family says I should, but it's so easy to feel like singlehood will be the norm throughout the course of my life. People everywhere are telling me to meet someone (even tenants in my building are telling me that now).

    I travel far too much.

    .. And when I do meet a girl I wonder if she's the best for me. Some part of me doesn't want to settle and another part of me hopes that there is a girl that I'll meet that I will just know is it for me. Are men meant to even be monogamous? Is it a societal construct?

    Your best friend is someone you can have a knock-down drag-out fight with, tell them to **** off, and not speak with them for two years, knowing damn well that the moment either one of you are in trouble, you will be there for each other.  A spouse is someone who you fight...

    It isn't that I don't think I'll ever get

    married, it is that I don't think I'll ever want to get married. With divorce rates over 50% and a biased divorce court, I don't want to ever get married. That doesn't exclude the idea of wanting a lover or partner, but simply keeps me in control of the situation.
