I've been single for a very long time and i've basically stopped trying to get a girl after numerous failed attempts. I've heard that being single is great because of all the freedom you have (which is true), but can I be like this forever?

A lot of times you feel lonely. I'm 32 and I'm still single. I refuse to be with someone I don't really want to be with. I know people who jump from one relationship to the next so that they don't have to be single, but it's really not at all that bad. In fact, I refuse to give up my freedom and independence for a mediocre relationship. If a relationship isn't going to be fun and exciting then forget it. I know they all come with tough times, but it needs to be worth it for me to put up with.
On the other hand it's Friday night and I have nothing to do. That can get depressing, but that's what happens when you get older. All of your friends get married and settle down with someone, and that's where they spend all their time. You don't get to see them anymore. You can always try to make new friends who are also single but eventually those people find someone as well. So that's the downside to this, is dealing with the loneliness. You have to be happy with yourself and be pretty independent to be okay with this.
I'd love to have someone and be happy with that person, but it's also scary to me. After all the B. S. I put up with, with my ex-boyfriends, I'm way better off single than dealing with all the drama.
So I guess for people like me who view relationships so negatively, being single is way better. Maybe someone who has had better experiences would say otherwise.1

Hmm, lets see...
You don't have to worry about looking your best (unless you're on the prowl for some tail).
You don't need to deal with some other person's crazy baggage, other than your own of course.
You can do anything you want whenever you want without having to run it by someone who might want to do something else.
You can watch whatever you want, whenever you want. Oh, and movie night isn't "sit through some mushy rom-com until she works up the gumption to blow you" night.
Fast food, fast food for that lonely miserable soul of yours. But hey, fast food!
Can you be single forever? I dunno, I haven't finished testing that theory, I'll get back to you when I die..6
