  • Peace & fucking quiet , would just love to come home to that , instead of arguing , petty drama & a lazy wife with the TV on blaring out crap !! Also not everyone is cut out for relationships , some prefer their own company.

    • No one needs anyone really, doesn't mean we shouldn't make connections. I don't need my boyfriend, I managed to live twenty three years without him, but I don't want to do without him.

    • its either about the Money, sex or badboy appeal.

  • I love being single but it's also pretty amazing to be in a loving and working relationship. That said I don't agree with this post because it only highlights the negative sides of a relationship.
    1. Why would you want to flirt when you are in a relationship?
    2. Why would be cheating an issue when you are in a happy relationship?
    3. Why would a loving relationship prevent you from doing what you like?
    4. Do you think your relationship is a good one when you get offended for sharing food? You should be happy about it instead.
    5. Why do you think that just because you are in a relationship you are limited to do things you like?

    This list shows why so many people are single, it's because of pure selfishness and lack of commitment.

  • Single losers club!! Let's tell each other stories how miserable people are , that are in relationships.
    You can't be happy when you're single. Unless you are on drugs or addicted to sex with strangers, or addicted to pleasing yourself sexually while watching p*rn . Irrelevant what you are exchanging the desire of being in a relationship. You aren't healthy.

    • If you need someone else to be happy, the relationship won't last very long.

    • Not theneed of having them desperately, but the need of having a partner in life.

    • Right. Only you know what healthy is for everybody.

  • Yes, so true , exactly what I thought too

  • The only ones I don't agree on are #3 and #5. I'm in a relationship and me and him both want each other to have personal growth. You don't have to do only what the other person wants. It's good for you both to do what you want to do when ever. Even if it doesn't involve them it's healthy for a relationship if both people don't feel like they are being chained down where you can't do something u want to do. Like I will tell my bf that I don't want to talk to him at the moment since I want to workout and he's a big distraction, lol. He will also tell me he wants to go and play league of legends with his college friends. I tell him to have fun and kick ass. :)

  • I love that biological picture you used for the first one. :')
    Anyway, I never flirted in relationships and I'm still unsure of how to do it tbh. I could still do whatever I wanted in a relationship, so being single just kinda sucks, but I'm getting used to it.

  • I'll never understand why people on here make relationships sound like a horrid torturous occurrence, in ones life. Instead of, a good joyous addition to their life. I understand relationships are hard work and it's never going to be easy, but three of these things makes it sound like your entire life is over if you enter into a relationship and that's just not true.

    Here's what I disagree with

    "3. Personal Growth

    You have more time to focus on youself and the things you like to do"

    I don't understand why being in a relationship would stop you from growing as a person and focusing on yourself or the things you like to do? There's no contract preventing you from doing that, so if one chooses to forego taking time for themselves or the things they like to do. That's on them, that's not because of the relationship. If you don't want to be consumed by a relationship and don't want to lose yourself in the process, then don't let it happen.

    "4. You are the supreme master of the refrigerator

    Yes! and I love this one. I don't have to worry about anyone eating my food!"

    What's the difference if the person you're dating eats your food or if your family or friends come over and eat your food? It's food, it's suppose to be eaten and if you don't want them to don't ever invite them over. Problem solved.

    "5. You can do what you want, when you want
    Enjoy your freedom while you can! Go out, have fun! Be spontaneous!"

    Again, much like number 3. There's no contract preventing someone from doing what they want , when they want, so if one chooses not to go out and have fun or be spontaneous. That's on them. The only time you can't to that, is when you know you have plans to go out with the person you're dating. However, the rest of the time your free to live your life however you see fit. Being in a relationship, isn't stopping that person from doing what they want or having fun. They're stopping themselves.

    • Totally agree.

    • Maybe she is talking more about benefits of being single and living alone vs married/committed. Face it, once you are in a permanent committed relationship, there are things you just can't get out of: family dinners, holidays with the in-laws, backyard BBQs, weddings, anniversaries. You can't just quit the job you hate because others are relying on you. And once children come, everything changes. You're locked in to a very rigid, structured, and "safe" domestic existence, working 9-to-5 to pay the bills at least until your kids graduate college. Some people don't like having their whole lives pre-arranged and predetermined like that, with no time for themselves.

      Most see being in relationships as superior to being alone. Does it bother you that some are actually happy being single?

    • @Lightspeed-Lemon No, why would it? I just don't see things the way most people do.

  • I agree with all of these except number 1 (partially). If the other person takes you seriously, they might feel like you're leading them on. And then I'd feel very much guilty. This only works if the both of you are on the same page and you know not to expect anything.

    More food is always a perk.

    Not having to share food is always a perk.

    Since my boyfriend is picky it makes life so much better.

  • I think you can personally grow with a partner. I mean, if you're alone with your own views, you can stagnate while having a partner can help you recognize things you might not have had before (friends can do that as well, but..)

  • I always was like "WHY! WHY AM I SINGLE?" and then i got a girlfriend (im bi) and now sometimes i hide from her :P :3 But i also think thats cause she's my first girlfriend. GIRLfriend. so... i kinda wish she is a boy sometimes but... at the same time boys are idiots (not all ;) and since she's a girl we can talk about girl stuff! NO NOT THAT? I mean how cute boy bands are or who we secretly like in the class and stuff like that (just cuz ur dating someone doesn't mean you can't also like some, right?)

    But having someone great on your side is pretty awesome too, and if it is the right person it will only eliminate Nr.1 and Nr.2. but you will still be able to do all the rest.

  • - love the amoeba pic!
    - #4 doesn't apply if you have roommates. Things still magically disappear from your fridge!
    - #5: you can't just still do whatever you want if you have no friends to do them with. It can get quite lonely...

    • hahah thanks for reading! well i have an exception to #4 ahah my roommate is almost never in our apartment and i'm the one that cooks so we both know the kitchen and everything in it is mine haha

    • I think it's a paramecium cause it has cilia! Amoeba use pseudopods! Just saying

  • Ok. I think that I agree with all of these except for "freedom". Because I feel that when ur in a relationship with somebody u should not even think about "oh well, I lost my freedom now". Yes mhm u cannot be flirting around if ur person dislikes that, and there are compromises to be made, and being happy to make them for the person that u love and care about. But thinking that way about freedom, it feels as if u become trapped in a cage when ur in a relationship, and it is not about that.

    Maybe it is just me. lol. (:
