Is it better to be alone Or settle for someone that is not Your type.Page 3 of 21    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21)
Married most of my life and ...

I've never had a short relationship. That translates to ... I've never settled. I don't think it would be a good idea for me to start now.

One thing we should keep in mind ... what about the other person? I could not do it to the other person.

No one should ever settle! it will eventuqally erode away at what ever is holding the relationship together till you wonder why you got together in the first place.

Use your mind, and follow your heart... no matter what, you will either learn a lesson in life.... or maybe find eternal bliss.

I'd rather be alone. In fact I'd rather be alone than in any relationship that wasn't working really well, even if it was with the perfect person.

I agree with the majority here & I would chose alone. Not saying living single is the way I had in vision, my golden years, but what is worst, living with someone & still feeling alone inside. When you are single, at least you are free to seek out companionship or fill that void of emptiness, with someone you truly desire.

I would rather be alone than with someone who is not right. I deserve someone who will complement me, and they should deserve the same.

ALONE

Otherwise you'll be asking yourself this question after your divorce - "Why in the H_ll did I do that stupid @#$%, it just wasn't worth it" but then I married somebody I thought was loved me, turned out she cheated.

I could 'settle' . . to a _certain degree_ . .
I have had a Fabulous partner, before . . and I could only Dream of finding another like Her . .
But, I won't just settle for any old Female walking down the street, Either . . !!!

Alone is better. If you settle you can't find the love in your heart for that other person that they deserve. If you settle and then change them into the person that you consider perfect for yourself..are they happy with what you changed them into? Are they happy with themselves. Which then you have to ask..did they let me change them because they had such low selfesteem that they figured they had to? Which then leads to the question..did they changed because they loved me or they were afraid they would not find anyone else that would love them in any kind of way. When you changed someone to make them what you want to be then it is not a give and take equally relationship..the person doing the changing is doing all the giving and the person wanting the changes is doing all the taking. Isn't that why many people are on here anyway? Give and take was not equal in our relationships..so we'd rather be alone than with someone that isn't for us?

Oh I would rather be alone, I think being with someone you are not compatible with would be a nightmare. Eventually you would be breaking up anyway. I think for me I would save myself and them so much heart ache.
Also I have a very full life. I don't really need someone, I am just at the stage in my life where I would like to have that special person to share my life with.

Alone.....you're talking about a lifetime..never screw yourself out of the possibility of meeting someone totally right for you, even if you're really old when you find him/her. If I settled, I think I'd hate myself every day.

ALONE!!!!

I've been so blessed to have quite by accident, found someone who rocks my world but had that not happened, I would have most definately prefered to be alone than to settle.

If you "settle" that may leave regret in the future. A lifetime of "Should of..." or "Could have". Soon you may be resenting the person. Unless, you have not varied from your set "type" in the past. The outcome may actually suprise you.

I’m going to have to go with Gilbert O’ Sullivan on this one. Alone again, naturally.

It is definately better to be alone than to settle for someone that is not your type... Unless of course you only have to be around the not your type person for a short time and do not let them move in with you.. But then they will just be the "in between loves" person and that is hurtful sometimes....
