    Is there a pervasive fear

    that single people, particularly if they happen to be female and live alone. This being "left on the shelf" is more of a concern for friends, parents and family members. My theory is, if you fear being single, you're more likely to end up in a bad relationship. Although I'm...

    I spent a great deal of my life wanting a

    boyfriend or having one. I've been single for going on 3 years or so and after the last relationship I dont see myself pursuing monogamy ever again. I get the desire to be with someone but that fades with my monthly visit from Aunt Flo. I want to work on my independence and as I...

    Don't you dislike that people automatically

    assume if you are single you are unhappy. What stupid person thinks that? I'd rather be single and happy then be happy in a relationship to become unhappy. I love being single. I'm FREE. Its such a great feeling to not worry about making someone happy all the time. I could just...

    I suck at relationships

    because I basically just suck at being a person. I'm emotionally unstable. I can be violent. (Not physically). I have substance issues. I don't really like being touched unless I'm being touched in a sexual way (no, I'm not a pervert). I'm not a very warm person. A lot of people...

    I find it hilarious that people become

    uncomfortable around you when you tell them that you don't want a relationship and you're happy single XD

    For now, I don't want to be in a serious

    relationship because all that seems to do is cause stress and bad feelings. Being single, I am free to date anyone I want without the drama, and there is no one I have to answer to if I want to hang out with friends or go to a party or whatever. One of the things I look forward...

    I have major anxiety.

    I have never been in one, but if I was in a relationship, it wouldn't last very long. I would always worry if I do something wrong, it would end badly. Or, even though I'm totally against it, I'm afraid I might cheat. I just feel that the single life is better for me. I feel...

    Dating is exhausting.

    Even text/online dating. It takes so much of my time and energy. The ritualistic preparation needed is ridiculous. Shave, pluck, wax, fluff. I don't have time for it. However, I do miss the connection. The sleep overs. The sleeping in. The hugs and kisses. God I miss the sex...

    This guy who's a friend of a friend likes me

    and we chat, but I don't see him that way. Now he wants to meet and I don't really mind since he's a cool guy, but I can't stand the thought of him looking at me in 'that' way. How do I friend zone him?

    Relationships are overrated.

    Being single, you have a lot of advantages, especially when it comes to money, but I won't get into that. You also get to make your own life decisions. I didn't realize this until high school (probably because I was too stupid or young to realize this). I have pretty much always...

    Being single is awesome.

    You don't have to worry about anyone but yourself. There's more time for yourself and you don't need to constantly notify someone what you're doing or where you are. That's what I love about being single. But sometimes I miss having a special someone. Or at least a special...

    I think the single life is better

    because a lot of guys have trust issues with women, and they can't tell which ones are the decent ones. Even if I tried to show how decent I am, none of them will believe me because they had their fair share of fake women.

    The best thing about being single is you can

    just relax and pamper yourself. :) It's nice to just talk to who you want and do what you want, and spend time doing things that make you happy and improve yourself.

    Have you ever wondered

    why people make dating or relationships a big deal? Like, if you're single, people will flip their **** and try and force you to be in a relationship with someone. Why can't everyone just ******* chill and quit making relationships a big deal? They're not really all that...

    I am happy single. Being in a relationship is

    too much work. I think not having to make anything work is better because you don't have to feel anything. No hurt and no games.

    just so I can reject this guy a second time. It's my own fault for saying yes to going out, but I really don't know how to tell him no again.

    I really wish men would learn how sensitive the

    **** is. You don't have to pound on it like the button in family feud. Very little movement and less pressure will get you a further. If a woman has to ask you to not touch it your probably doing something wrong and should reevaluate your technique.

    I have come to embrace being single.

    When unhappily married I knew I wanted to not be married. The thought of being single was so scary. Alone oh my that would be awful. The longer I lived in a sexless non passionate marriage the more I was willing to take the chance. Seven years I waited for love to return. Then I...
