Who actually enjoys being single?

I won't lie, being single is actually really awesome. No worries about 'checking in' you don't have to please a partner constantly, and my favorite no more dealing with any of that jealousy BS. Yup it's pretty darn great.😎 I'll date in due time, RN I am loving it though. More money for shopping! $$$

  • Given where I stand in my life, it's best for me to stay single. I can focus my time and energy on getting things done and accomplishing my goals that will shape a good part, of not, the rest of my life.

    Maybe once I have my life together, then I'll consider dating. Sometimes I feel like I wish I had someone to be affectionate with and make love to, however, that would only slow me down and quite possibly cause me to lose my focus (it has happened before).

    More money to take care of myself and more time/energy to climb life's ladder.

  • I was single for a very long time and it was great the freedom, but i always longed to be able to share my heart and life with someone and when i found the right person for me it become something really beautiful our love just kept growing and growing and what a journey it has been together. I actually enjoy being married with the girl i love.

    I know people who are happy single and enjoying life, for me though i always wanted to be committed to a girl and spend a lifetime building memories together and now that my wife is expecting our daughter i could not be happier.

    Happily married and have always desired to be. For me, single was that status that I occupied until I got married. Single is a status I'll never be again. Thank God.

    • Sorry, I forgot include an "I'm tied down" opinion, maybe this poll was just a tad biased. 😐

    • But that's amazing and congrats on your marital success!😄 Those are eventual goals as well.

  • Well, suffice it to say I didn't want to be single this way.

    I get that being single has its perks. Sometimes I enjoy them. My wife couldn't handle sailing (too seasick), so I do a bit more of that these days. However, I'd swallow the anchor (give up sailing altogether) for just another day with her.

    I tend to dislike the implications that people who don't want to be single don't know how to enjoy being single. That's not necessarily true, though sometimes it is. A lot of single people who want to be in relationships do have fun with their time. It's just that they would like to have fun and be in love.

    by the way, I've noticed a lot of people singing the praises of singlehood are young. I know people my age who, not by choice, are single and never found love. When they were the age of most of the young folk here, they were singing the same song. "Woo hoo! Love being single! All this me time!!!" Now they are singing a very different tune.

    Nothing wrong with loving single status.
    Nothing wrong with wanting to find love.

  • Sorry what.

    There's no such thing as a 'player for life' on GaG. B*tch sit the f*** down m8.

    I'm a special kind of single. I enjoy just being around other girls. I would sometimes go out / hangout with them, be close and intimate with them, flirty and a little romantic but hardly will i ever get serious unless she is the girl i truly want to pursue (I'm talking engagement).

    It's really awesome... you guys should try it... because you get the enjoyment and companion without playing with people's hearts or being all committed and dedicated (basically draining the fun out).

    You're reaping a lot of the benefits, but you're not risking yourself or getting into anything deep that'll start causing. I'd say it's a good deal. Worth it.

    • After a certain amount of time I can see myself getting tired of being single too, I won't lie, but initially it's not so bad. All those things sound fun. 😊

  • I enjoy both on certain terms...

    My body and mind let me know when it is ready to end the single world and find that special woman in my life.

    Being with someone is always best, in my opinion, until it becomes obvious it is over. Then being single is better than staying with that person.

    Being single is necessary when recovering from losing someone you really cared for in a breakup.

  • I agree that single life is enjoyable, but for different reasons than you, and none of the options acurately describes my scenario. I am not looking at the negatives of a relationship and thinking life is great without them (like you are), but instead, I simply see no benefit to having a relationship. I enjoy being alone for long periods of time, and thought of having to be in constant contact with someone all throughout the day, everyday, sounds tiresome and tedious. As for sex, there are ways to get that without a relationship.

  • I was talking to my psychiatrist 3 weeks ago and I told her about the two choices we basically come to ,
    one managing loneliness if we are alone or managing frustrations of relationships. I told her that I find loneliness much harder to manage.
    She said that 80% of the people she meet in the Mental Health Unit have that same problem , they really struggle managing their loneliness. This could be a question all on its own.

    • Interesting perspective. I like a change in scenery. Let me know if you decide to speak on this in a future post. 😊

    • as you get older , pass 40 , if you are still single and you were not blessed with children, your view \on being single changes and the world around you also. Until 40 , I would say up to 45 , I was too busy and on the go to think about it, but ageing alone changes a lot of things, So to the younger crowd on GAG, enjoy every day of your life, and if you can, organize your life so you do not age alone.

  • #commitmentphobe

    I realized a while ago that I am just not good in relationships. I am just not comfortable with titles at the moment. For me, it's not so much that I don't want to be with someone, but actually being with that person in a committed way scares the hell out of me. I've taken a break from dating and I'm okay with that. I'd rather enjoy the single life and just have fun with friends... if I had a lot of them...

    I like all of the aspects and benefits of a relationship which sucks since I don't actually want to be in one so I can't get any of that. Luckily, I have my best friend, though. He cuddles with me, haha. Cuddles are what I love the most. I think that's like the biggest reason I would even want a relationship, haha.

    Relationships are cool, but the single life keeps calling me. <3

    • I'm not mad at that, relationships can be amazing😊

  • It has its pros and cons. I rather enjoyed being single for the last few years. I am at the point now where I am ready to not be single, but am not in a rush. Tbh, it depends on the day. Lol. There are days when I am thinking that I am so glad that I am single because I don't have worry about not cooking something that particular day and getting bitched at for it. Then there are days when I don't want to be single because I am the only one amongst a group of friends at a crawfish boil or a Christmas gathering that isn't part of a couple. These are just little examples and not the only reasons or to be taken wholly seriously. I pulled them out of my ass, but you get the point. Lol. I will say that Christmas is the biggest time of the year that being single gets to me. I have to share my kids on Christmas, so I end up by myself. I spent the last two years by my parents, so I wasn't entirely alone, but it's just not the same.

    I've tried dating/being in a relationship and it just wasn't for me... At least for now. When it's official I don't want to call him, text him, or see him. Pretty much it's I'll see you when I see you. Honestly a guy would have a better chance with me if we weren't dating or if we didn't make offical. I just need my freedom!

    • Lol I know yours struggle all too well! I've never had a problem finding a boyfriend but I start feeling suffocated quickly if my man needs constant attention, phone calls, gets jealous easily, doesn't want me to have guy friends, or even girl friends. I've always been a social butterfly I absolutely hate being treated like an object or thing someone owns. I'm in love with love but commitment is a lot of work at times. I'm not a cheater or untrustworthy but I get annoyed if I can't have my space, no air kills the fire. Without fire a relationship is dull. #SingleGirlsRejoice ❀
