    I Would Love To Love Someone.

    But I don't. I would love to know how it feels to feel that I couldn't live without a significant other, but I have never felt that way. Even when I was married I never felt like I couldn't live without him if he ever left me and I only married him because it made sense as I...

    I hate it when people ask "Why are you single?

    " I don't know why I hate it when people ask but I do. Do they automatically believe you're single because no one wants you or whatever they assume. I'm single over choice, I'm a picky person. They have to be mature yet not too serious. They have to be respectful and prove that...

    Freedom Is In Knowing What You Want

    It is so hard for me when in a realationship to think about "What I want".I am always thinking about what is best for the "Other".Being single has allowed me to experience the freedom to think about and do the things that I want! This is not selfish....this is being independent...

    Never been kissed, never been touched.

    Lol that's me. And I like it that way. I'm glad it's not yet taken from me. No guy has ever kissed me yet even on the cheeks :) so far a hug was the furthest I've done with a guy Lol. I enjoy the freedom. Yes sometimes I wish I have a boyfriend. But hey, I'm still young for...

    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.

    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...

    and so I would search hi and lo for Mr.Right or rather Mr.Right now. I was raised in a farming town where you married your high school sweetheart and life started then and there. Maybe go to college or have kids. That didn't happen for me and I was so depressed I was going to...

    Being Single

    I do like being single. There are times that I wish I did have someone to come home to and cuddle with, but then there are times that I am glad that I am single. For instance if I want to go fishing I can and I dont have to seek permission or be at home at a certain time. Also if...

    I Think I Want To Stay This Way

    Granted, I've never been in a romantic relationship, so I don't have one to compare to being single. But no one in my family - and I mean NO ONE - has had any long-lasting relationship. Some were good and just ended after a few weeks, but most were awful. When I see all the drama...

    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.

    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.

    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.
