    Why Do All Those Who Haven't Tried It Try To Change It For Me?

     I can say I've tried it all from casual sex to long term live-ins, flings, and marriage, and now have been successfully free for 1.5 years, and am so thankful for being single every time I think about all the complications of relationships.  But I do get lonely...

    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.

    Freed From The Shackles I Called Love

    They say love can be the greatest thing to have since sliced bread. True, I once was in love but during my journey through it, there were moments I was stressed out from trying to be the best I could for this woman but eventually from love went to emotional exhaustion after...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.
