Do you hate being single?

I've been single for a long time now, and I go through stages of being ok with it and being really down and upset about it. What about you guys?

  • Oh boy do I not like being single. Like yeah people say not to date, and I do have really good friends, but I just see too many cute couples around me and follow too many cute couples on social media that I just cannot be jealous at them. Plus, I have so many things I image dong/dream of doing if and when I get into a relationship.

    Ironically, I say all of this even though I was asked out twice in the past. But obviously I rejected both of them.

  • I don't know if hate is the right word because I've been single all my life. Never been on a date, never had a relationship, none of that. There's no reason for it, it's just how my circumstances of life made it be. However, I'm getting older and I've always wanted to be married and have kids. So, the older I get the more I want to find someone but don't know if I ever will. I don't hate being single because I'm kind of a loner in general, so the being by myself doesn't bother me necessarily but I do get lonely and I guess long to find someone for myself. That's how it is for me.

  • I've been single for four and a half years now, sure it can be difficult at times. companionship is what i miss the most (cuddling and just generally enjoying someones company) but try and get on with living your life, it's very likely you will find someone worth the commitment given enough time and patience! 🙏

    • Yeah I'm in the same boat as you there haha. Not so much the realtionship I miss just more the closeness you get with being in a relationship.

    • I have been single my whole life. Beat you guys to it.

  • Man I’ve got to tell you. I don’t envy single guys right now. The feminist thing is ruining girls for life or until they figure it out and snap out of it.

    The sex part where girls have grown up watching porn would be nice. In my day we had to basically make them try the stuff that girls now do without question. But I’d take an old fashioned girl over a sex freak any day of the week.

    I’d just chill if I was you and wait on a really good one. It will happen. With divorce so high you can get a straight up 10 when you’re 30. The hottest fucking girls get divorced and then go with the nastiest dudes. You would be their hero! Lol.

  • I've been single for several years now and it's not that bad!

    No really, it's not. Being single is only terrible for people that aren't happy being alone, or are incapable of finding ways to occupy yourself and rely on others to be happy.

    I'm not saying I don't want a relationship, but it's not a necessity for me because I find other ways to be happy: my friends, family, fitness, hobbies, etc.

    • But if you where dependant on a guy he probably would make you his girl, but being independent means you don’t need anyone

  • i miss being single... dont get me wrong. i love my boyfriend to death and we do everything but... we do everything together and i sometimes miss that freedom to be able to go out dancing witj my friends without worrying about my boyfriend getting jealous or it being disrespectful towards him

  • i felt the sameway when I was your age. always single, and friends had boyfriends. i felt leftout, like i was missing something. i just wished i had a boyfriend so random guys i didn't know would stop hitting on me. plus, people kept on setting me up with failed dates which made me even more sad. at 24, i found someone i could feel comfortable with anc we got married very shortly afterwards. you are still in your prime age. go out, meet people.

  • I don't hate being single. This is the time for me to work on myself.

    However, I'm also not talking to any guy on that level... I don't do much flirting either so sometimes I do crave that connection with a man.

  • I've been single my hole life, its not like guys dont talk to me or they dont ask me our or anything. Its just that being single makes me independent and picky to find the right guy. Some people get in a relationship as fast as they can and end up breakup as fast as the relationship started. I dont want that, i dont want to be with someone just to be with him, i want a guy who will appreciate it as much as ill appreciate him. Yes sometimes i dont like being single, i want a boyfriend. But at the same time i wouldn't settle for anything that wouldn't appreciate and encourage me in what i like and do. We all want someone to share our life with but at the same time we want a partner that would understand us. So dont be sad of being single, take ur time and find the right girl. In the end she will show up.

  • I've been single for my 28 years. I used to feel like a loser and no good. But I turned away from that feeling and now want to be single forever. It seems so much easier this way. I like independence and privacy. Living by myself is the best way for me to live. I admit that I do get lonely at times but I can always find a way to make it go away.

  • i think there was a 3 year period of my adult life where i was firmly preferring and happy to be single. the rest of the time i was rather ambivalent and/or unconcerned. it wasn't until i hit about 30 that i felt like i should start actively working on not being single

  • If you've been single for more than 30 years or 40 years, or even 50 years or more then it really isn't all that big of a deal anymore. To me, it is what it is. I don't believe any relationship would actually make me happy or better than how I feel right now either way.

    • I'm grateful for remaining single so I never have to deal with things like breakups, getting cheated on and various other relationship difficulties and problems and if there aren't enough problems and difficulties I currently have to go through and face already.

  • It's the hormones talking loudly too , I was no exception @ 22. The bright side is the older you get , the less of a fuck you give , in my case , none given. Single parent , so that means staying single , and after the marriage I endured , far happier single. Life is much simpler too.

  • I hated it when I was younger, had a love-hate relationship with being single when I hit my early 20s, and just before I met my current girlfriend I embraced it.

    I had to go through a couple of shitty relationships to realize that being single really isn't bad at all.

    Happy relationship > Being single >>>>> Unhappy relationship

  • I don't like it... I think what bothers me the most is that it's very difficult for me to ever connect with anyone, because of what I do. The only women who take me seriously are really amazing women, so that's dope, but it also kinda sucks because sometimes I really just want to steal away with a girl for a weekend, or have a hook up.

  • Used to hate being single but as I get older I've learned to love myself more and have really found out who I am. So at this point I'm completely content being single but it does get lonely at times. Dating has difficult because I seem to be looking for someone who has my mindset. Anyone who's desperate and clingy with that "I can't even function without a man" attitude is a huge turn off.

  • I hate being single as someone whose never had a girlfriend. I constantly feel alone, and feel like I'm someone not worth giving a shit about. I'll spend so much time wondering what it feels like to be loved, and what it feels like to hold someone you care about so much in your arms, what it really feels like to make someone else happy. To me being single is depressing.

  • It's nice to have someone to do stuff with it at least drag them into going with you. But, until I find a good match, I'll just enjoy being single not having to put up with another person's problems. Both have their advantages
