I Want to Be Single For a While

Because relationships = too much work! 116 People

    Undecided.

    Being afraid to do things alone. Being tired of always having to stand up for myself. Getting annoyed seeing public displays of affection. And not knowing what it feels like to surrender my body and soul to someone - are all the reasons i hate being single......enjoying walking...

    I Think It Would Be Good....

    I have always thought I had to be with someone. I don't really want to now though. It has been difficult for me to figure out. I dated four people at least. I think I would enjoy being single though. It might be good to try something different. I used to have four cats. I don't...

    It seems like every time I get close,

    I get hurt. Me and this girl have been flirting all week and we had so much chemistry. I went to her house today and she told me she likes this other guy. That kinda hurts 💔

    I Need This

    As someone who probably has attachment issues, I think this is the best course of action for me. Also, there are so many other things that I need to figure out and focus on that would be too difficult if I am in a relationship...especially if the guy is a jerk. I think I have had...

    I'm In No Hurry

    I don't understand why people think that just because I don't have a boyfriend and haven't had one for some time that I'm bent out of shape about it. Or that I must have confidence issues just because I'm single. I don't need a man to entertain me, believe me, I can entertain...

    Closest I Could Find

    So I've been single and living apart at the same time, 6weeks. I'm actually lucky to b me. I will enjoy the stars alone if no one is there to join me, I will sit alone doing what I like, which I did anyway, I'm getting used to it. Can't lie I'm keeping my options open but not...

    She was raped and assaulted.

    10 years later as supportive as I try to be, I'm the cause if her PTSD. I just don't get it any more.

    This May Be a First For Me

    I think I've always been obsessed with being in love and having a significant other. This last year I've been with my live-in boyfriend. I think we've done okay, but I also think it's time for us to seperate. Usually before I break up with someone I have this awful habit of...

    I just ended things with my gf

    for almost 5 years...it was hard but I felt like I needed to be alone for a while because at the moment life seems to be flying by and I feel like I'm missing out on too much and I've never had a chance to enjoy being single. I'm worried I may have made a mistake.

    I cut off all ties with my gf of 2 years.

    . After she lied to me about a number of things and ****** with my head. I guess its time to put myself first and train the heart to cope without her.
