Do you hate being single?

I'm sick of hanging out with myself Sometimes. I already know what i like, i want to know someone else though. I want a person to share my life with. Other days i enjoy the solitude and know that if i wasn't single then my me time will be divided, but still. .. i miss the morning sex and someone to cook for and ask that
do you hate being single?

Updates:
All that*
i love myself, I'm really interesting and smart but what's the point of having these qualities of there isn't anyone to share them with?
I have friends too so I'm not completely lonely.

  • No, I don't hate it. However, I have been on my own for quite a while now (a few years) and would prefer to have someone to share my life with. Like @TimesNewRoman said, it's getting kind of old.

  • Well, hatred is a strong word. Perhaps too strong in my case. I hate that my wife died. However, I would say I dislike being single, but I wouldn't say I hate it. I hate Hitler. I hate cancer. I hate broccoli. But I would say I only dislike being single now.

    On the one hand, my wife didn't much care for sailing and air travel. Me? I LOVE sailing and I LOVE air travel. Since her passing, I've taken advantage of traveling and I've been on some really neat trips! However, when I arrive at the hotel every night, I confess it's lonely. Make no mistake, if I were given a choice between never sailing and traveling again and having my wife back, I would choose to have her back in my life and never think twice about it.

    The question you should be exploring, Buttersauce, is what are you doing to change your single status? Lately, I've been asking myself that question.

    • Oh, good. And good grammar skills, by the way. People always get that one mixed up.

    • Thank you, that's a new compliment

  • I just want to say, Ahh Fuck Yeah being single sucks! I hate being single too. Yes, it has GREAT advantages such as being able to take a step back and reevaluate yourself as a person. But me personally, have been without a steady girlfriend for close to a year now and it's really starting to hurt a lot some days/nights. I have put myself back out there in the flesh and online. Not as much being out than in, but I still make a valid effort to be sociable and get out at least twice a month. But lately for me nothing has been working. I've subscribed to numerous online dating networks and can't seem to get responses from the women I've attempted to get to know. I'm still putting a smile on my face when I wake up and put my best foot forward when sending messages online and approaching women, but have been getting rejected a lot lately. If I get any attention it's from women that I'm not totally into and know that I would eventually want someone else that I'm more attracted too. Kind of at the point where I think settling may be my best option at this point. I'm getting older and women keep getting pregnant by men that they won't be with and someone like me would have to deal with that. All one can do is continue to pray and have faith that someone will be able to accept me and my quirkiness. I'm not the best looking guy out there but know that I'm far from one of the worst looking so I'm really not understanding why I can't get anything going. Ladies let me know what I'm doing wrong

    • I don't even attempt to date online. I need some personal interaction

    • No its just the perfect hiding place for a shy parson

    • yikes your brave though

  • I'm in a similar predicerment. I broke up with my ex a month a half ago only to find out she was already with someone else only 4 weeks after we broke up. Desperate much. I'm not a person to enter relationships out if desperation or insecurities anymore. So I do like some things being single even when I was for 2 and a half years before hand but Isis that comfort I had and I also think sharing time with another is important. I don't truly love myself yet but I'm working on it. And don't intend to enter any future relationships till I've overcome this. i think the hardest thing is to truly live yourself not just get over the thought of being single

    • You are doing the right things for you, she can suck it

    • I guess. I don't hate her or despise if her just letting her of her thing and me as well. Some things are better left broken. I think once I'm completely healed and ready for commitment again I'll be even stronger for future relationships :)

  • Kind of and no. On one hand, being single is potentially dodging bullets. That's a good thing, I also value my own time and I have come by needy girls who get upset because I didn't reply that 3am text.

    The one thing that really tips be off about being single, is seeing girls I find appealing complain about certain type of guys (douchebags), and next thing they are going out with that same type of dude.

    I guess the solution would be for me to make my move early, but then if at the end these girls actually liked that type of guys, my attempts would have failed.

  • More than you could ever imagine... I hate being single... I just want a beautiful girl laying next to me every night so I could tell her how much she means to me and how sexy and gorgeous she is. I'd bite her and tickle her and make silly noises so she can laugh. I just miss those days but feels like their gone forever. All the girls I meet are hard to trust or we have nothing in common.. Smh... Man everyone said just be patient but Im running out of patience to be honest...

  • I can't describe how much i hate being single. I hate it. The worst part is, i'll probably die alone. I don't have a girlfriend, never had one actually. I don't have an active social life, i see a few friends but it's not gonna help me in the long term. I'm miserable and i'll keep being miserable.

  • Not really. Sometimes I get sad, but then I realize it's only because my idea of a relationship is so much better than the reality. The reality is disappointing and often ends in failure -- and a painful one at that.

  • No I don't hate it and plus I'm still young. There's nothing wrong with being single I don't understand why some people look at it as a bad thing. I'm just focusing on myself and my studies so I can get out of school with good grades and go on to college. I'm not really looking for a relationship right now, in the future sure but right no. I've learned something my past relationship that I don't need a boyfriend to make me happy. Although in the future I would like to have a serious relationship and a committed one as well. I don't ask for a lot, as long as he treats me right and makes time for me and shows that he loves me, well that's all that matters to me. But I couldn't be with someone that wasn't willing or ready to commit. I'm focusing on myself and growing as a person so I can figure out what I want in my future partner. You have to learn to love yourself first before you want other people to love you. And something else I learned is that you can't depend on your partner to make you happy. Getting out of my last relationship helped me realize what I deserve and who I deserve. I never settle for less, I'm just doing me and focusing on myself. I can find love later in life.

    • Women get hornier and want more attention on their periods.. i like giving women that attention

    • Eww... id honestly feel sorry for you during that time of month because it stinks, id never let a guy near to my bum area at least, not always are we cuddly during our periods though... sometimes we feel like utter shite... for me i have issues lately with my period regulationg so sometimes i feel terrible... but it messes up my sleep so i'm groggy on a regular basis, especially in the morning, the sleepy effects of my period lasts for a week after for me because it makes me sleep an hour or 2 longer, id be sleepying probs during that time lol so hugs and kisses is all a guy would get.

  • Heck no! While being single I am learning to love myself in some really amazing ways. I am reconnecting with my family. I apply myself fully at work. I have some really awesome friends. Some of them I might even think they are so cool, and I have such a good time with them, that I want to date them, but I know that I will just learn more and more about them as friends. It will be a million times better if it evolves organically. Raise the bar! Better to have quality than quantity.
    When I realized the guys I respected and wanted to spend time with are busy with their lives, and so am I, I just enjoy the time we get to spend together as friends doing awesome adventurous stuff.

  • I'll be right on about this. I'm quite an affectionate person and it sucks that there is no one to show affection to (cuddling, making out). When I think about it though I much prefer being single than being with the wrong person. I can only be with someone I care about.

    • I'm the same way

    • If you think about how you would want someone to treat you who loves and then do those things for yourself, you will attract someone who also loves themselves and feels whole. Then you can be a pair and compliment each others life rather than trying to complete each other as people. You want a guy to take you to the movies? take yourself to the movies. Can't afford it? Get a job. Want your partner to make sweet love to you all day? Masturbate ALL DAY. You want to be with someone who keeps up their bodies, DO IT FOR YOU, don't wait for someone to be your "reason"

    • @neenerneenerneener lol for me it's that I like sharing these feelings with someone else. I enjoy the company of others and I never said I don't love myself. Masturbation doesn't satisfy my anyway. I don't live for boys I live for myself all I'm saying is it's nice to have someone you can express your feelings to.

  • Well, you might hate being single. But relationships are drama. Lol. And you can talk to whoever you want when you're single. And you don't have to shave for anybody but when you want and you honestly just don't try as hard when you're single.

  • IT sucks to be alone but being together causes more trouble than being a single that's the fact. Men these days expect so much from women. They are spoiled by successful women that they see on TV and they have high standard and yet they are in denial. They say they want only lover but then there is whole other lists follows by. I think that it's because world don't need more babies too. it's natural that male don't want to spread their seed due to the over population in the jungle. there are too many animals in the jungle. And yet if you want to mate, you have to step down leaving your job and life to pursue family life which is not encouraged much these days. I think.. I guess that explains why people get f buddys, smoking buddys, partners, companies and so on. if you want to get out of single life, you either have to lower your expectations or just give up.
