Living alone is great really. I lived on my own from 18 to 29 then made a very horrible mistake. The biggest mistake in my life so it seemed. I got married and for 11 years felt so miserable thus ended up departing the relationship. That was the greatest thing I did and was very happy. Of ocurse been single again since 1990 with no need to have aperson hanging on you. Being able to do what I want, go where I want means more to me than just sitting in a house with nothing important. Beingable to be free is much better. Living alone is nice and love it. I live and teach in China while a few of my fekllow teachers are married they give me praise for coming here and doing something more useful.
