  • I'm pretty sure I could get a gf if i really worked for it. I'm not great looking or anything but I'd say I'm average. I'm pretty much average across the board, average looks, intelligence, personality, etc .

    I guess my reason for being single would be..
    I'm shy/introverted, have high standards, and my self confidence is practically nonexistent. Like realistically I know I'm not horrible but in my mind I obsess over my flaws, both physical and emotional so even if I did meet a girl who met my standards and was interested in me, I'd probably reject her because I'd feel unworthy. Id be unhappy with a girl that meets my standards since I'd know that I don't measure up but I'm also not willing to go for less than what I consider ideal so I guess I'm fucked :/

    I'm a disappointed idealist

  • I don't know. Not many guys show interest in me. All the guys I've been interested in so far have rejected me in one way or another. Either by flat out telling me no or that they're only interested in having sex with me because they're "not looking for a relationship right now". So eh.

    • i really wonder these stupid guys who rejects you, although you have been interested them :)

    • I may say you could be in the wrong circle of potential bfs. Try to expand your network of friends to some very different ones, that have nothing to do with your background, education and culture. You may be surprised!

  • when i do come across someone i want to date, it's impossible to get to know them better in the romantic sense because they're usually 1. a stranger or 2. taken or 3. i'm too chicken to do the approaching and so the whole thing just crashes and burns.

  • Earlier it was because I couldn't attract anyone. Later and now it's by choice. I wanna go with life by myself once I get my finances all set. I think it's easier and less stressful to like solo than have to focus and worry about keeping a relationship successful which involves a lot of stuff.

  • I wish I had a girlfriend but pretty much all girls don't see me as a potential boyfriend, so it never works out when I try. So many girls treat me like I am the scum of the earth when I am the complete opposite of that. Why should I have to put up with been treated terribly when I am a good, kind and caring guys. This is why I am thinking of giving up completely on love.

  • It is by choice, but I also understand that life is unpredictable and circumstances can change, and people can come into your life unexpectedly so if I were to meet a guy and felt something was there I wouldn't be opposed to getting to know him, going out with him etc., Sometimes you just can't plan these things.

  • Im not a big fan of alchool and I want something serious for my first relationship. So, unfortunatly, trying to flirt in bars/club is really bad because of those 2 reasons, and the only other place that is possible to flirt is in school. But when I was in high school, I lacked confidence a bit, and was kinda shy ( 1v1, in groups I never shut up :P ). Im still a bit shy, but my self esteem is way better now, and I start college in January so we will see if anything good can happen

  • I wonder why.. maybe I don't do the first move.. or I like a guy who seems impossible to be with.. could be I am just waiting and not looking..
    The best reason I could think of is because I believe in destiny, that he will just come along or cross each others path and feel the chemistry then that's it..

  • I was in a very, very long relationship with multiple partners, n... Well, I just need some time to myself now. It takes me a long time to get into relationships in the first time, so I usually spend a long time being single if I'm between relationships. But I have some very close friends, and I don't mind it. I'm not even looking for a partner right now. I think it's about time I take some time to myself and work things out on my own, to be honest.

  • a lot of things working together
    but mainly I'm just not around that many guys in the first place.
    Even when I'm around guys, I'm kinda shy so I'm not talkative unless they approach me... and guys don't really approach or take initiative to talk to me. I guess I don't have that attractive air about me or charisma or whatever haha

  • By choice.. I'm not looking for something mediocre.. My previous relationships haven't made me paranoid about other men.. Just made me cautious and wiser.. So I think I'm just being. Picky at this point.. There is this one guy but meh I don't know I'm unsure about him now..

  • I'm single by choice, being in a relationship right now is the least of my worries. My friends, on the other hand, keep saying that I must be very oblivious to not notice if a guy is interested or that I unintentionally friendzone those who are interested.

  • I'm presently single because I decided I'd rather be single than to be part of the couple of which I was formerly half.

    I shall continue to be single until I find someone I like with whom I can form a couple.

    I hope that answers your question ;-)

  • Because I'm shy and awkward getting to know new people. Plus I don't drink alcohol and don't like clubbing so it's hard to meet guys. Also time is a huge factor when I'm at uni.

    • Lol get outta my head. Im a guy and you just described "one" of the main reasons I'm single. I have lots of reasons haha. Im at a uni too. These are just a few reasons
      1. I wouldn't date a girl who's ever had casual sex... so unattractive
      2. I wouldn't date a girl who's had a ridiculous number of bf's. It just turns me off
      3. No drinking, no drugs or none of that crap
      4. There's more to a relationhsip than sex
      5. I'm better off being single
      6. I don't need anybody to complement my life
      7. Girls these days are too slutty

      Im not judgmental or anything but we just have to be compatible. I'm more into sweet, old fashioned, hopeless romantic type of girls but its hard to find any.

    • Hahaha yeah I pretty much agree on all your points @HopelessRomanticHere - and don't worry, there us still some of us out here :)

  • Because I am a strong and independent woman who doesn't need a man.

    • @timesnewroman how does that first part relate to the second? Lol explain.

      Anyway it's complicated.
      I was planning on telling him at the beginning of the summer.
      But my friend told me to give it up and that he doesn't like me.

  • Relationships are work.. And I have enough on my plate to be worrying about something that's whiney and needy.. Undefined relationships are cool.

  • Well because I usually keep to myself, don't go out much, when I do feel comfortable being myself they might find me awkward, flirting skills online are great while my flirting skills irl suck. And because genuinely no one likes me

  • Guys tend to dislike me at first sight, then when they get to know me, they see me as one of the boys I guess. Also I'm not really attractive probably. And I haven't found a guy I'd like to get involved with and who'd want the same with me.

  • I'm too busy with school to worry about relationships right now. School comes first for me I just don't have time for a relationship right now. I haven't met the right guy in my life yet and I was cheated on in my last relationship so yeah. I'd like something that's serious in the future not right now. I'm waiting for the right person, I feel like some guys I meet don't know what they want in a relationship. Just focusing on school for now not trying to get in a relationship right now. I get attached to people to easily and don't take the time to get to know them but that's changed.
