I will use myself as an example. I am 24. I am single and fine with it. I am in college and I do not approach the women there. I am there to learn, not meet women or form relationships with people. Society believes that people need to have a spouse when it fact you don't. I will be honest, I don't like people and I don't trust them. I prefer my own space and things my way. If I could be single the rest of my life I would choose that over having a girlfriend. This is how I genuinely feel and it won't change. I prefer my space and solitude. Why do people think you need a girlfriend?

You don't. People are messy, they're human and therefore prone to making mistakes. And if you're with someone long enough, at some point and of some degree you will get hurt by them. It's inevitable and if you prefer to avoid it, that's your prerogative. It's great that you are your own person and both happy and comfortable with yourself.
For me personally, while i don't feel i will ever get married, i do want to have significant relationships throughout my life. I think i see it as part of the adventure. New places, new sounds, new tastes, new people. It's more about meeting someone i get along with and can share an experience with, that i can bounce my personality off of.
In the end though the thing to remember is that people change, who we are is not static or fixed in any way. So i wouldn't close the door on relationships altogether, in twenty years you may feel differently or completely the same... As long as you're honest with yourself and happy, that's all that counts. Screw society!1
