Why are you single?

Why are you single?


I tried to include lots of options. I struggled, I improvised, I imagined.
So, are you single? If so, why?
If you're not single, are you happy in your relationship? Do you think it'll leave to marriage?
Thoughtful answers appreciated, but not required.

  • I'm struggling with confidence and self-esteem. Plenty of girls have thrown out hints that I should talk to them (making eye contact with me repeatedly, catching them looking over at me, always paying attention when I speak to someone else nearby) but I find ways to convince myself they have zero interest and I'm making it up in my head and that they'd never want to get to know someone like me.

  • I couldn't be any happier of a man with such a romantic, caring and loving girlfriend! I've known her since we were little kids, in which over time our friendship evolved into a relationship and we've been deep in bonding ever since <3 She's the only woman in my life I can envision being in a relationship with and I look forward to our marriage when the right moment happens!

    I've thought about my life in the past being single; it was quite lonesome and not so motivating. I didn't feel like I had to try all that hard with impressing anyone when I lived on my own; felt like I could do whatever I wanted which lead to laziness and lack of passion. I used to believe I was happier being single but I felt more inspired and motivated if someone was there by my side! Everyone's different and I feel like I'm much happier as a person if I devote my attention and love to someone I really care for! Looking back from being single to being in a relationship now for almost 8 years, I'm significantly happier with my girlfriend and I'm glad I made that important choice to ask her out instead of bailing out

  • I'm not single and quite sure we'll get married in a few years. I'm very confident about the relationship and extremely happy to be with him. He is the first person who actually likes going in the same pace I do, which is relatively slow. And because we have similar upbringing and history, we really get each other on a level I've never had with anyone else. He truly feels like my soulmate.

  • I was engaged to be married at one time, but the guy turned out to be a scammer and cleaned out our joint bank account and took me for over $25,000. This took place like 4 years ago but it still hurts and I haven't had a relationship since because of trust issues. I was blown out of the water. The OP missed this scenario.

  • I'm single because I had a girlfriend and we broke-up and I've since then learned from my mistakes by extension causing me to decide to wait on any relationship until I'm more mature and prepared to maintain one.

  • Mostly due to my own issues. My family is a dysfunctional mess with both parents having had numerous poor relationships, with most of my 'friends' throughout my life having manipulated me or otherwise stabbed me in the back. Naturally, this has left me bitter and jaded towards the very prospect of any woman ever being acting like she's attracted to me without having some sinister ulterior motive like everyone else who has screwed me over-so I don't even bother dating.

  • Because single with a girlfriend or so is the way to go. It is a good life that way. The women I go with like being single too.

  • For a long time my heart belonged to somebody else. Mental blocks put me in a position to reject everyone. All girls.

    Now Iโ€™ve started to overcome the mental blocks and started to think more. I am more actively looking.

  • I'm divorced and a full-time single parent. So I'm single because of lack of free time and I haven't been able to find someone that only wants to hang out once a week or once every two weeks to just simply enjoy adult fun behind-the-scenes...

  • Voted A, I'm getting married next year. I don't think i've been single longer than a few months since i was... 18? When i just started uni. I really enjoy the companionship of a girl.

    Interesting gender spread on the poll, i have to say.

  • I am single because I choose to be. And because I really don't see the point because I just don't believe or feel that it's going to make things better and make me "happy" either way since I am an unhappy person either way with an unhappy outlook on reality and existence altogether. I really don't think relationships are going to last, that the fact is that they aren't guaranteed to ever last long, if at all. All things come to an end eventually, and can be completely unexpected. I mean honestly would anybody want to be around someone with lots of cynicism and existential despair, and filled with emptiness? Because that's how I truly am and feel. I wonder. It doesn't go away either way. Thus I decided that it is best for to not have anyone at all, so I'd have no one to lose, nor can somebody else lose me.

  • I'm single because most guy's my age I know are very immature and just want sex and I when I actually find one who I think is different they end up being just the same and say they don't want to be with me because I'm "Mrs right but not right now" or I'm to good for them and they don't want to hurt me are usually the main excuses I get, what are probably just ball sh! t and the real is because they know I'm not easy and they'll have to work for it

  • The last one for sure. Also itโ€™s more fun to imagine what my fantasy love would be like. I still want do lots of stuff before I find someone. I feel like if I got in a relationship I would lose the little personality I have. I donโ€™t dare to lose that. I want watch korean drama n sad British romance... lol n I want wear lots of blue... I want make tons of super smart friends... n I want be able to laugh flirt with everyone... ๐Ÿ˜‚ I feel the older I get the more I realize how deep my heart goes... something I wouldnโ€™t be able to do or know that I was capable as a teen. I also pretty much emotional so i have to be very careful not to fall for someone dangerous or evil. I guess I am a complete hopeless romantic but I donโ€™t like that side of me.
