I Love Being Single

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 204 People

    I still don't know who I am.

    How can I give myself to someone else if I don't know who I am? I want to wait until I've figured out who I am, what I want, and what the heck I'll do with my life. Then, I'll find someone to share my life with. I want a life before I can do that.

    Expect To Be Cheated On?

    Expect to be cheated on? Monogamy is basically one sexual partner at a time for a period of time (I would think long-term) or one marriage at a time. Okay- well, is it still practical in today's society to expect monogamy? Or should we expect cheating and/or short-term...

    It feels lonely sometimes,

    but it feels worse to have someone who's supposed to be there for you and can't be. I enjoy being on my own.

    Livin It Up In Singledom

    Raised with the ways of church and the dreams of Disney, I'm just now learning that there is nothing wrong with being single. My whole life I've heard 'you'll find "the one" and finally get your "happily ever after" ending.' Well, now I'm learning that "the one" isn't the key to...

    I almost prefer it. I recently had a string of

    almost relationships, and don't get me wrong... It was nice. However, all of them fell through.... And it's kind if a relief. If I found someone I liked, I'm sure it would be equally as enjoyable. But, it's nice to be single. I can do what I want when I want to-which is the big...

    I've been single since Christmas 2012,

    when my gf of 11 months decided she couldn't handle living away from her family. Well, that was the excuse she used, anyway. Before that, I was married. At the ten year mark it was time to end it, took until after the 11th year to get the court stuff sorted. Aside from a...

    I just love being by myself.

    I have time to think. My friends keep trying to hook me up with thier friends. I hate it though. I love being able to have peace and quiet in my life. I love the calmness of being single. I only have to worry about myself and enjoying life by myself.

    I love being single, it feels good to not

    worry about relationship problems. I have more time to be me and do me. Life has opened up for me. I feel it's a waste of time chasing women, most look great but it's usually smoke and mirrors. Women are cool but i believe life as a single person is so much better.
