    I had this long talk with my aunt,

    who is having a complicated relationship, and she was talking about how the man she's with is really nice and rich and very loving. I agree. But she also said that she's taking depression pulls because of him. She said whoever you pick you should always be happy with without...

    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...

    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 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...

    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.

    Whenever I meet someone,

    I'll give them a chance. Until then, though, I think having time to work on myself is nice

    Zilch

    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...

    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...

    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.

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

    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 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.

    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.

    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.
