I Like Being Single

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 699 People

    I have come to embrace being single.

    I've started to realized that being single isn't a curse but a gift. I'm not in some waiting room waiting for "real life" to start with my husband, but I have the freedom to be completely independent and free from the drama and rollercoaster-ness that romantic relationships come...

    There are so many things I want to do

    that I could not do if I were tied up in a committed relationship. Relationships have so many rules and are too much work, esp. for something so temporary. When I meet my other half (best friend), he will be the last bf I'll ever have.

    I don't like being single.

    .....I LOVE being single. To be honest, I love my freedom. I don't have to share anything with anyone. I don't have to think about anyone else but myself. I can be as selfish as I want :)

    No Interest In Relationships

    I had a very serious relationship some years ago... I was deeply in love. It unfortunately ended, and since then I've remained single. At first, it was merely because I didn't think myself suitable for relationships. I was an emotional wreck, and I felt it would be a great...

    Being single after a long relationship isn't

    as bad at I thought it would be. It's just important to get back out there and enjoy life ✌️

    No Room For Romance

    No dramatic story about disappointment or broken hearts. I just like being single. I am fairly confident around people, but I do like my alone time. I don't feel like I have room or want for a romantic relationship. Maybe someday, but not now.

    why some people are so hung up on being single. Sure, there are times when I get a bit lonely and would like a nice girl to be with, but the majority of the time, I'm happy at being single, it gives me plenty of time to be myself and learn about myself. I have enough things to...

    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.

    I don't want to be in any relationship now.

    I am enjoying every moment of my single-hood. Without any attachment, it's freedom! I could be with anyone I like, got to go anywhere I want to and do anything I wish.

    I tried dating once and I felt the opposite of

    whole; empty and overwhelmed. Maybe I haven't found the right person yet, but my standards are impossibly high and I'm a lithromantic. The only thing I am scared is not being able to share lasting memories with another person in the future. But that's what friends and family are...

    Being single is being at peace,

    being in a relationship always comes with fights and worries, just relax and lay back, enjoy the single life with a nice cool drink in your hand.

    Why do a lot of people complain

    and whine about being single? You know it is ok to be alone because you can focus on yourself and only yourself. Plus, a lot of freedom. I think when people do complain about being single, they only want to be in a relationship because they are afraid to be alone and that's not...

    Gay, Single And Not Looking

    My last relationship ended 5 years ago and at that point I decided that pursuing long term relationships (amd making them work when you have one) is just too much effort. I made a decision to stay single and so far I haven't regretted it for a moment.

    I have absolutely no interest in getting into a relationship. I had a few offers this year. All of the men were nice, good looking as well. I just could not do it. Something about it just grosses me out. I know I am a very odd girl. I have NO desire for kids. I am pretty sure I...

    People complaining about the 'friend zone'. ******* GROW UP!!! If that's all you want to do, then I think it's better if you did stay single until the day you die because apparently you're not ready to be an adult. If someone does not feel the same way about you then move on. It...

    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...

    Being in a relationship is hard work.

    It takes a kind of commitment that can only be fulfilled if you truly love the other person. And I'm not capable of that. I have yet to find someone for whom I will only have eyes for. And until that day, I think I'll remain as I am.

    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.
