I Love Being Single

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 242 People

    I have found anything past short term dating to

    be a real bore, and I feel very restricted as to how I can and cannot act. Honestly, after ending a not so serious relationship with someone I have tons more fun with them just occasionally hanging out as friends, which is awesome since it means I can be the horrible person that...

    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.

    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 Love Being Single

    "I don't need a man to rectify my existence. The most profound relationship we'll ever have is the one with ourselves." - Shirley MacLaine I ended a 3 month relationship not long ago, and I decide that I love being single. I no longer need to explain to my ex-boyfriend about why...

    I've been single since the day I was born.

    I am totally ok with it :). I've been on dates, I've just never felt the chemistry. I guess that fate makes me single because all of the people I attract aren't looking for commitment or they just want to hook up. I have broken down crying once because I know that the people who...

    I wish people would stop labeling being single

    the worst thing in the world. There are a lot of things that are way more worse than being single. A lot of people are not mentally ready for a relationship. If they're not happy being single, they'll never be happy in a relationship. If you ever hear people say they hate the...

    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.

    I don't need to be in a relationship to be

    happy. I actually don't find it important to be in a relationship. I find trying to live my life and trying to survive in this world WAY more important.

     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...

    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.

    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.

    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 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 don't want to care about anyone else.

    I don't want to share anything with anyone else. And I don't want to think about anyone else. I want to be selfish. To me, it sounds like being in a relationship is so physically and mentally exhausting. I really don't want to waste my time and energy for something I don't want...
