  • I am content for the time being.

    There are times when I get lonely, but I don't think a relationship is the only solution to that. I find companionship in friendship.

    I find it hard to commit because I know I have a temperament where I get too emotionally involved. Neither I have the time nor the faith to get involved right now.

    The things I like about being single is I feel more connected to myself, I have more time for myself, I don't have to work on the relationship.
    Right now, I am happy at building up and growing my friendships.

    • Your maturity proceeds your age. You actually sound quite intelligent and level-headed, you might blow your top every once in a while but you know what's best for you.

    • Thats one of the best things anyone has ever said about me. Thank you! You made me really happy.

  • I'm content with it, I have plenty of things going on in my life and friends to see and such. That doesn't mean that I don't get lonely once in a while like everyone else but I know that if I were to be in a relationship just to fix the short spurts of loneliness then I'd be kidding myself by thinking I've solved a problem. I believe the only way you can truly be happy with a partner in the future is to be happy with yourself when you're single.

  • I used to be content but now I hate it, all my friends are in relationships and I’ve never dated anyone in my life... I feel I’m single because I tend to really want to get to know the person before getting in a relationship and many of the guys are too impatient and want to date like two weeks after meeting each other

    • Same here... partially anyways, lol.

    • I'd hate to play the devil's advocate here. It seems like you are in this situation where you are craving experience. Maybe even an ideal experience. You are so young, enjoy your youth and take pleasure in spontaneity. The best feelings in my life were the unexpected surprises. The guy/girl you'd least suspect sharing an intimate moment with as simple as holding hands to kissing. I'm pretty open-minded about things. Oh and by the way I'm not telling you to go out and become sexually-active. You can be spontaneous and still take things slow.

    • Wow, that’s deep... and like super accurate

  • No Worries. I Can Do Whatever I Want Without Him Getting Jealous Easily Or Being Needy Etc. Yano What I Mean👊💪

  • I feel I'm single because I'm not good enough and I'm at the point now I want to be alone so I don't care anymore.

    • I hear that a lot and I don't understand it. When it comes to relationships, you can only be different, not inferior, because love is entirely, 100% subjective - there is no absolute good and bad, best and worst. In every case I've seen, it always just comes down to bad luck (so far), not meeting the right guy (so far), etc. It's not you.

    • A normal feeling, especially around our age. Just know you are not alone, in fact there are so many people not paired up for whatever reason. Honestly I think most people spend too much time inside their own homes and not out actually setting themselves for chances to actually meet someone with compatible chemistry.

    • It's normal for me because of what has happened to me

  • I love being single. I feel independant. I'm learning to love myself. I'm learning to love others. I'm still creating myself and learning about things I like and don't like. I can focus more on things that matter. I hated relationships because I would invest all of my time and energy into one person, and do anything I can possible to please them.

  • I used to accept that, but now I'm sad about it, so I'm not content.

    • Being sad won't help much though now will it? Whenever I get in a depressive episode I pamper myself. A heavy emphasis on personal grooming, exercise, better eating. You'll feel like a million bucks.

    • No I won't. Been there done that.

  • Yes, I'm content. Waiting for that special man though.

  • I am.
    But it gets lonely often. I am just independent but I sure wish to have a nice and sweet lady.
    I must be able to be happy on my own and not depend on anybody else. Only then I can be truly happy whenever I want to and I choose to be happy most of the times.

    I like being single, that I have to spend no money on anyone, don't have to deal with stupid drama shit, not having to watch movies like 50 shades of grey with anyone, not having to worry about being cheated on, not having to deal with the consequences of sending social media likes to other girls (i don't have social media but still), not having to hide my porn and not having to compromise hell of a lot or loosing the majority of my freedom.

    Of course the biggest downsides are no intimate, emotional support, no cool woman, no cuddles, not being cared for, no sex and not being able to cohabit with someone, who I would love in order to make life overall better (sharing tasks, sharing bills etc...).

    The grass is not greener on the other side (it's not cooler in the far other end).

  • I didn't start to notice girls until fairly late and I am extremely oblivious to the point my MOTHER sometimes points out girls to me. (No that's not a joke) since I started being interested I have not had the chance for one reason or another. I have come to think it is really important having someone there you can count on. Human beings are social creatures and pack animals and I don't think any one person is ment to totally be ok by themselves.

  • Well if I was in a relationship I would have to take time from my already fucked work schedule. Also I wouldn't have as much money for speed parts. Which you know I don't have any money anyway but I'm sure if I had any I would spend it on speed parts.

  • I just look on the bright side. At least I don't have to worry about being disappointed by somebody else, don't have somebody else to argue and fight with, don't have someone to lose, or having to deal with someone else's moods, don't have to worry abou being cheated on, break up with and various other drama or any financial pressures or stress. Don' have to compromise with somebody else and I have more control over what I want to do or not do, go wherever I want to go or avoid going anywhere I don't want to be. And just for the record, I'm actually older than the age displayed in my profile here.

    • You say there is nothing you can do about it, why do you say that?

    • Show All
    • With a mentality that nothing can be done. You set yourself up for failure. You simply won't care. Driven to the point where you no longer keep yourself groomed properly, you won't carry yourself properly, and naturally women will have no interest whatsoever. If you hate it so much do something about it. Blaming the world for their luck and genetics doesn't do you any favors.

    • I really do at this point think that my future wife is no where near here where I live. I feel as if people are to busy to date anyone. Bigger city areas are filled more with crazier people. Maybe there is someone here, but in a county with 900,000+ people, I would have to knock on every door, visit every store and food place in town to meet a girl and I'm not rich enough, nor does anyone have the time to do that. Maybe people have so much taste in women that they can date anyone, any age any anything and have someone instantly. Maybe my taste is more specific than I think. I would like to date and marry a girl my age give or take a year or 2, but the last time I met a single girl that fit that description, was 7 years ago and before that was in 2002... attractive or not. It's crazy, you would have thought by from all these years, I would have ran into someone by accident. I have met a few girls 5-10 years younger than me and that was 7+years ago.

  • It sucks donkey balls... I'm single because I'm too picky... Looking for that perfect one, but I'm starting to think she only exists in my head...
