  • Most men have no chance to ever have someone really be attracted to them. The best the majority of men can hope for is a woman's self-esteem dropping low enough that she will allow herself to be seen with him, before she inevitably leaves him again for one of the 1/10th of guys that women actually do more than tolerate. The best most men can hope for is to be tolerated by a woman for as long as possible.

  • Its both really. You could really be stuck in an area you can't meet anybody. That's much less common than just having a poor attitude or nothing to bring to the table in a relationship though.

    Get in shape, deal with mental health issues, live a life others want to share in.

    Tldr Basically in theory it could be bad luck, in practice though its a choice to be single.

  • From my understand and recent knowledge, most people don't have good luck with dating, some people just settle. If you tell yourself that you're happy and satisfied, that doesn't make it true. People who believe in never settling or have specific needs choose to be single.

    • So you’re saying a majority of people settle?

    • Duh, does it look like many people are happy to you? It has never looked like most people are happy to me. Ever since I was a child I would only see like two or three happy couples out of fifty, and sometimes they end up splitting up too which would come as a shock to others.

      Here's another shocker for you. I've had many relationships where my partner and I were sincerely happy. I made many people jealous through no fault of ours and we always end up splitting faster due to other people rumors, interference and jealousy. This is because society doesn't view happy relationships are normal and don't want anyone to have that.

  • I think I have the lowest of the lowest luck in the dating world ^^;;

    It's an annoying thing to happen in a society where people expects you to be in a relationship and plus, marriages happens all the time here haha

  • Yes and no I didn't choose to be, but I agreed with my recent exes choice... she was unsure of where I fit in her life but I suppose due to bad luck we chose to be this way, however we remain still good friends

  • For me it's a little bit of both.
    Every time I pursue a girl she already has a boyfriend or is nowhere near interested in me, which further makes me keep choosing to be single.
    It's probably how other people feel as well.

  • I don't really think it has much to do with luck, but sometimes it's not much of a choice either.

    For example if you're really busy with work, like maybe working 80 hours a week then you don't really have time to socialize.

    And if you do have time, but you're, not good looking, terrible charisma, or anti social. Then that's not really due to luck, you just need to work on yourself first.

  • I have defied all odds and have had a truly horrible experience with dating. I don't consider my single-ness to be my fault at this point, though, and it's because I have recognized that I am being sabotaged.

  • Love isn't a choice. It finds you, it happens to you. You can't choose like : "I want to fall in love with him or her over there." But I realy think that at one moment you come to meet someone but then its uo to you what you gonna do with it.

  • I think it's a choice on a subconscious level. We have resources that can train a person on how to find a mate, but most don't take it.
    So, if you don't want to try, maybe you don't want to get one.

  • As a person who tried to be the perfect girlfriend to every single guy I dated, I think it’s just some of us have shitty luck. I’m beautiful, passionate, supporting and would give my life if I fall in love but look, the guy I loved left me few months ago and already is dating someone new.

  • I picked B but it could be a mixture of both.

    My mom has been single for 30+ years. She's received countless offers from men who don't mind that she has children and genuinely seem like they want to start a life with her. However, she's chosen to be single. But I think having bad luck in her first long term relationship (my dad) has made her more guarded and cautious of who she gives her heart to.

    • What do you mean? You’re lucky you’re no longer with your ex and want a break? Or he was the better one you’ve been with and want someone like him again?

    • Show All
    • Why’d you two break up?

    • He had aggressive tendencies & I was over emotional. I’m only 17 now. We broke up when we I was 16, right around his 17th birthday Bc I said some rude things at a party & he got out of hand. He never hit me or anything obviously! Just had a rough past. We talked about it afterwards, and I still have love for him. I just think were too young. (::

  • Well not all in a relationships are lucky so being a single is not a bad luck. I think it's our choice if we want to stay single.
