I get the same thing....
I think they think we are lost or just not into relationships. If the guy wants you he will not ask you why you are still single he will ask you on a date. I am same age as you and I found that guys only want someone to be there for them but never for you. I have found that when they say that they are just insulting you, because a guy would never say that if they really liked you. They can be saying it, because they are amazed that you are with them. But 60% of the time that is what I get.

I am 37, single with 2 little girls and guys are always asking me too why am I still single? Very easy question, I just haven't found someone that I could see myself with. I find younger guys are immature and the older guys I have nothing in common with so trying to find a good guy my own age that is single is very hard. I also don't want to go out of my area which makes it VERY difficult to find that special guy close to home. Good luck to us all!

At age 30, single and living on my own for the very first time

At first it was scary and I felt so lost, but one year down the track, I'm totally loving the freedom and independence.

^^^ Good for you! I'm always happy to hear a woman enjoying her life with or without a man.

As for me, I think it's because, given a mutually exclusive choice, I'd rather be alone than in a bad relationship. I know more than 1 person who's married but miserable. And I think I've become a better partner for the next woman in my life, whenever that may happen.

I'm single because of a number of things that women have told me over the years. Sad but now I see they are right. So I'll stay single

I'm still single because I haven't actually dated anyone since my last relationship. Also, when you tell guys you are a grandmother at 35, they are like, "ALRIGHTEH THEN!". Lol. I am sure there are other reasons but I'm not too worried at this point.

Because it's easier for a girl to get a boyfriend than it is for a guy to get a girlfriend.

I've been single for a about a year. I was in a relationship that lasted about 8 years, and eventually broke it off. I'm still single because I just recently decided that I took enough time away to jump back into the dating pond. I was never one for getting right into a relationship shortly after another one ending....thats a recipe for a failed relationship, and not fair to whomever you start dating.

It's way easier for a girl to get a boyfriend than it is for a guy to get a girlfriend, because us guys always have to initiate.

I think, well no.... I know that I'm still single because I don't have a lot of friends to go out and meet people. The friends I do have are either married or just have moved on and lost touch. It's pretty hard meeting anyone when you don't go out very much.

The online scene has not really done much for me. Only ever been with someone I met online once, and that only lasted a few months.

Love just comes to women, us men have to fight tooth and nail for it, that is why I think women have it easier.

Cause Ladies can't handle I have one kid in my life lol! Not like I have 50 hanging out there that I don't know of? Take it from me, after 30 the dating pool is getting smaller friends of ours are getting married, have kids and enjoying the future! While we sit on the bench being picky and choosy on who we date so someone has some baggage who cares! I would rather a woman with a bit of baggage and she is getting control of it cause at least she is living and handling her on Biz! We worry too much of the small stuff and the years go by, we are getting older and before you know it we are asking the same questions at 40 why are we still single?

I was asked this question once again yesterday. I had to sit back and think about it again. I'm single because I'm not willing to just accept anyone in my life and I don't want to settle for behaviors that I cannot live with in a man. I am open though to new experiences so I have the doors wide open.

The question "Why are you still single?" is silly and insulting. Nobody asks a married person "Why are you still married?" The question seems to assume that there is something wrong with being single. There is not.

Women have it easier because us Men always have to initiate, I know it's tradition, always been that way, but that makes Women having it easier.

Thank you sir. Those were the words I was looking for in an earlier post on this thread but didn't know how to express it.

The sad thing about it, though, is when the question is asked how many single people suddenly feel compelled to have to justify themselves. Like you said, if you were to ask someone, "Why did you get married?" "Why are you divorced?" "If you're divorced why did you get married in the first place?" as if implying there is something wrong with it the person in question would very likely get annoyed, if not downright offended.

If there's people out there who can't comprehend the fact that being single is a good thing then there's really not much you can tell them.

Their problem. Not mine.......

Funny but I didn't notice that on the ballot last election day. When was that law passed? Did you vote for it?

Who makes rules for you? Why? Is that the way you want your life to be?

ask them why they are single
you want a descent human
do not want to support a man
want a intellectual, somebody has values
if you have been released from prison...please do not apply
if youhave 10 children and five women...next
if you are into drugs...here is the door

you get the message
it is beter to be happy then with somebody and miserable
do not want a needy human
want a winner...please line up here
