  • Many women are desperate to settle down and feel they own a man, it is quite sad. They come to me for accurate psychic email readings telling me that they must find a man and chain him down to marraige or living with them, as if he is a possession, a thing, rather than a person with choices and wishes of his own. They believe that if he marries then they have security, totally forgetting he can cheat or divorce them later, and he probably would if they are so demanding.
    Very few of them are single through choice. Many of my male clients ARE single through choice. It depends on the person whether it is through choice or not. www.accuratepsychicreadingsonline.com/psychic-email-reading

  • The very moment you were born, you were single with no relationship to begin with. As time progresses, you learn that you're given two choices in terms of how you want to live out your life: Stay single or be in a relationship with someone. If you have validations and reasons for something, it's always a choice! You can choose to be single because you like the independent life you have or you can be in a relationship, in which you share your personal life with someone! Being single is most certainly a choice.

  • Absolutely. I have not had one client that could say I couldn't help them to change their status from Netflix, Oreos, and Sweatpants to “I am taken” Now lets be honest their are many who think they deserve someone that is out of their league and since they can't get it they say I will be single forever. Sorry but you have to shop in the same store that you belong in.

  • Why wouldn’t it be a choice? If it wasn’t a choice, that would mean no amount of effort, ability or desire to be in a relationship is possible. What is that saying? That being single is like a lifelong sentence? Anyone who thinks that is likely waiting for mr or ms perfect to fall out of the clouds and land in front of them to be discovered and appreciated, with no effort on their part

  • Definitely. I've been single since I was 16 and I don't regret it at all. I've worked more on myself than anyone at this point in my life and while it does get lonely sometimes, it has brought me a lot of confidence and self worth. Don't be afraid to have standards, if you're actively improving yourself with everything you've got!

  • I think I'm single by choice. I mean, I'm not barring the door to keep out the never-ending parade of women trying to get to me. But I like being single right now, so I'm not looking and I'm not putting myself out there to be found. But I say I "think" it's by choice because if I did put myself out there for all I know the only response I might get is a lonely tumbleweed blowing across the road and a couple of crickets chirping.

  • If someone asks you out, you can choose to say no. Is this really so hard to understand? Why are single people getting so much hate here lately? If people want to focus on themselves, school, or work before trying you add romance, then they're clearly intelligent people.

    I admire anyone with that kind of will power, because I hated being single.

  • Yes. It's a choice. But for some people it isn't. Said people can become single then they hit a slump... I've been single for a while now and it love to have a real relationship again but never feel confident or comfortable enough to follow through with that.

    Long story short : yes it's a choice but can evolve into being a hard to change situation.

  • Being single is a choice to an extent. Not everyone who is single wants to be single, although there are some who do. If being single wasn’t a choice, I’d be stuck with the first jerk who asked me out. How unfortunate! I chose to be single rather than stick with him.
    Tl;dr context is important in this question

  • It is and it isn’t. For example I had a guy from a dating app tell me he was in love with me and wanted to marry me but he didn’t know me and assumed he did without really caring about any of my needs. So yes, I could have been married just for the sake of not being single but would it have been worth it in the end? I’d rather date and find the right match, then settle for the first person that shows interest. 😊

  • Yes, it can be.
    I don't want to be single, but I know I'm not ready for a relationship at the moment. A guy asked me out recently and I turned him down. He's very nice and handsome, but I've got some things to work on first.

  • Being single is no more a choice we get to make, than the choice between being "desirable" and "undesirable". Some people are born and nurtured to be physically attractive, physically healthy and emotionally healthy enough to attract mates, and some aren't.

  • I'd say yes and no.

    If no one likes you to begin with then you're pretty much forced to stay single unless you do one of them mail order brides.

    If you got a bunch of people flocking to you and you would rather remain single then that would be a choice.

  • I was single for years after my first boyfriend. Then I tried dating but he was so immature that when I was free from him I actually found my fiace. Sometimes we need to be wrong many times to know when its right. Today Im not single also by choice.

  • That question has no definite answer as it'll be different according to the person. Some are single by choice even if there are people having crush on them, some want to be in relationship but get rejected or something like that. So I didn't vote just shared the opinion.

  • Yes and no. It's a choice if you want to stay by yourself but it's also someone's choice to be with you. It's not that hard to find someone to be with though.

  • No, for it to be a choice it would have to involve only the individual making the choice, but definitionally being in a relationship involves two people. Now everyone will see someone who is desperately lonely and single and think, "someone ELSE must give them a chance sometime". But for some people, no one ever does. Being single is NOT a choice. Some people have literally no options and will die alone no matter what they do. This shouldn't be that surprising. Most men in history died alone (because of polygamy, many men had three, four or a hundred wives, leaving the majority men without partners or like five brothers all married to the same woman).
