What's the longest time you've been single?Page 4 of 5    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)
This seems like a bit of an odd question to me. I don't think people are single and then suddenly decide not to be, pop down to Partners R Us, and pick one off the shelf.

Most people tend to be single until they bump into someone which results in them no longer being single. Usually when they least expect it.

Which is probably why sites like this are actually a crock of sh1t as they make people believe that finding someone is like ordering a book off amazon.

Hey restless,why would i bother ordering a book off amazon when i can go get em free from the library!


Each to their own.

But, I prefer something that hasn't been thumbed through by quite so many people before I get to it.

Not very long been living on me own for 18 months and during that time had a few short term relationships and some fun.

So no idea what it would be like to have a long time on me own then not want to lose me own space

All of my adult life. 32 years and counting. Just never met anyone, As for changing things, after watching many of my friends going through painful expensive divorces and loosing every thing they have worked for, every cloud has a silver lining.

10 years more or less, and counting... you know, the freedom thing is great but I occasionally miss to have somebody to cuddle.

Chucks a pot at Lightstar! There's more where that came from too! Xxx

Life is just a dream - if someone sends you a Meet Me you can search for their user name, check their profile and, if you like it, message them :-)

Does 'Single' mean without date/sex? - about 15ish years between birth and losing virginity! :-)

Unmarried? - 35+ years

Living alone without family/live-in partner? - 3 years

Without 'proper' sexual intercourse? - 2 years

Without sex (other)? - 3 months

Some of the loneliest people are those in 'relationships' - if you have true friends and family it counts for a lot.

well, it depends on when you consider the starting age for dating. I'm just under 30 and have never been in a relationship. not by choice either.

Well natdawg has never been in a relationship, which for him is the same as forever or an infinitely long time, so mathematically speaking I think he wins!

I've never really been single until now, well 2 years since splitting with the ex but I like it and not in any hurry to change it if I'm honest. Anyway been trying to resolve everything and it's taken two years to do, so wasn't ready to get involved until now and for now I'm just enjoying the peace.

im not too sure to be honest but counting backwards i reckon i was single for about 10 years other than the occassional titivation... i was in a relationship for three and half years which ended april/may this year. that left a few scars but i found it very reassuring to find i can actually compromise, trust, love and commit to another person. pity he didnt want that but still rewarding for me to find i had an unexpected depth which hopefully will re-emerge once i get past the urge to gauge his eyeballs out with a potato peeler

A competition to see has been the most single... How sad! Why do we not all put the past behind us and meet up?

I have been single 10 years now.

There are advantages and disadvantages to both sides.

Relationships can be very hard work and expensive financially and emotionally.

When I was married I had nothing.
Now I am single I own my own house and have a new car.
Quite happy doing my own thing and life is mostly uncomplicated.

After divorce I took a while to pick myself up again ! Been single now about 10 years & have to admit I rather enjoy living on my own .
Yes I have been on quite a few dates over the years but as I"ve gotten older I realise it"s not quite the same as when I was a kid :)
I don"t really fancy the look of men that contact me lol ! I guess in this age of looks counting first off , both I & them don"t quite feel the same ...so friends will do just fine .
