I am single because all the women my age all want sex three time a day.
Sorry I'm too old for that now.

i am single because i avoid a lot of things in life (dating, partying, going out, job searching) because i cannot tolerate the possible consequences (rejection, people who will act in a way that turns me off). I screwed myself big time during my high school and middle school years.

My stock answer. I'm single because I've not yet met anyone who makes me not want to be single. *shrug*

WIP, I hope you don't mind if I borrow your stock answer.

I might add, if asked, that I imagine that I won't be single if I'm in love; if I'm in love, I won't be single.
Seems pretty simple to me.

When I was single, I had no problems discussing why. Sometimes I wanted to focus on school, work, and other things. Other times I simply didn't meet a man where there was mutual interest.

I'm single because I chose to be.
I'd much rather learn more stuff about my job and interests. And I have been doing that for the past 4 years!

There really hasn't been anyone in recent memory to sway me from remaining single. But I'm also content with life right now. I don't want any stress to add to it right now.

In the past I think I select men based on what other people said I should seek in a man rather matching him to my personality. I would loose myself in the relationship and then start to resent the guy AND it would go down hill. I have learned WHO I am and what I value and what is important to me and in doing that I have become undatable. Mainly because I dont feel this pressing need to go out with a man simply because he asks. We have to have something in common besides race and both being single.

(this cracked me up and I know I wasn't alone)

For the record though, I am single because I am a merciless and intolerant biotch with the patience and attention span of a chipmunk on crack.

I'm single because I'm seeing two therapists ( pretty sure I'm going to be the thesis of one of them ;-) ) and they're currently making too much money from me which means I have no more money for dating....

As well as the fact that no bloke wants to stepup in and accept my open loving relationship with my son.... nevermind that I have yet to meet a bloke who actually respects and values my intelligence...
Oh yeah, also that I'm picky....
and I don't pity fVck
Oh, and I'm nuttier than a squirrel turd...

Oh, I could go on, but I'm tired....

I would counter that question with "why are you married?" They do stop asking once you hit your forties though I have found. Perhaps they feel we are too old to catch a man.. lol!!

Though I personally thought it was obvious, here the list.

I fish.

I drink.

And, I'm basically certifiable.

I'm still actually single because I am not legally or illegally married.

Timing? Right vs wrong?
the right place but wrong time.? Wrong time but the right place? The wrong ones ask and the right ones don't.
Doesn't help to live in an area where the wildlife (deer, raccoons, buzzards) out number people.

Yes, it is annoying when well meaning friends and family ask "why aren't you dating anyone?"

Okay,, the truth? And I am probably not alone in this. Because it's scary out there.

Because I'm a starving artist. I'm not really starving, but I'm not traveling the world twice a month like some of the people on dating sites. It doesn't bother some women and then I figure out why they are single.

Why am I single? Because I'm comfortable this way and don't do much to change the situation. Boring, but better than drama.

I'm glad this thread was brought to life again after 5 years. A lot can change in 5 years.

I'm happily single now because its easier.....on so many levels.

I also am glad this has been ressurected.
What happens when the answer is:
"I do not know.
Despite my best efforts finding someone I like who also likes me for the same thing is proving to be extremely difficult."
Married and coupled friends do not understand.

5 years ago I had just terminated a poor choice.
Since then.
Nothing better nor close.

(Except of course the fabulous pen pals on here)

That being said, I am now trying to come to grips with the obvious fact that I will remain single for a long time.
Perhaps forever.
This is a difficult reality to comprehend.

There are worse things than being single.
But you can choose to leave those worse things.

Finding that elusive wonderful that you know is there............................



Hmmmm

I am obviously not comfortable giving up the dream.
Hence my profile is visible again.

Good luck to me.

:)

To answer in the literal sense, I'm very open to that discussion.

Reading between the lines and answering as I feel the question is intended.
I've got way to much sh!t going on in my life right now. It would not be fitting nor fair to inflict myself on any woman deserving of much better.

btw: My profile has been hidden for roughly a year now.

The number one reason is limited opportunities.

I'm too much of a homebody and I don't approach women in public.Hence, why I'm here.

I keep telling myself to expand my comfort zone but it's that old dog, new tricks thing I think.

I'm single because I don't meet men who want to date me. When I express interest in men it is not returned.
