I agree completely. Single mom's can be in many ways much more grounded, sensitive and understanding. At least for me, raising my kids alone has made me much more tolerant, which when dealing with some men, is a definite virtue. I'm single, but not by choice. The had part is finding a man who can see past the fact that I do have 2 wonderful kids and as you said, NOT looking for a Dad here, but a partner to share all that and more.

I will not compromise on what I feel is a reasonable... loving...caring...relationship....
I do not think going to bed with a bunch of different people leads to a quality relationship....
I have also learned from previous mistakes in my life what to do and not do now...there-by trying to avoid those same mistakes now....but not saying I will not make mistakes again...I'm not perfect...never will be...and don't expect anyone else to be either...the mistakes I made were not very big ones...but ones that I see I shouldn't have done...
I will only accept someone who is themselves and not someone pretending to be the one I want them to be...
I'm still looking for the "One"...
Oh, there could be a zillion answer's for all of us...all different from the rest...

I am single because I do not believe in playing the games, I am not persistent in clubs[women want persistent men]. I am confident person and feel I have a lot to offer the right lady without compromising who I am and being phony . I am opposite of most guys . Than again they have a woman now and I do not . OH WELL

Because it's not a negative thing to be single, in fact it's quite liberating. I like to do what I want when I want, and not have to answer to anyone.

Because it's very difficult to find someone who you find attractive with good character and reasonible baggage. Plus at this stage of life it is impossible to find a woman who will deal with my career schedule.

Actually I don't know if we are ALL on this site to find someone. I'm not and I've spoken to people from here who aren't looking for someone in their life, they just want a friend to talk to.

True. Some of us are single by choice, or aren't so worried about having to be with someone. I like talking to new people, and checking out the forums...

I wonder this all the time...I did make the choice to be single but only after my ex cheated on me...I stay this way because my heart still just hurts too bad to set me up for that kind of pain again...In a perfect world though I must admit I would rather share this life than go it alone...then again...this is not a perfect world.

Why am I single......because all the lovely ladies live in Canada or 1000 miles away, and I am not a good enough smooth talker to convince them to move here where for fun we watch pavement crack.

Because we chose to be. Life is so full of opporuntity and there is so much to do that you should enjoy it while you can. If you are happy at that and only change when someone or something else mkakes you happier.

Currently and like most of you, I am single by choice.

It is because when a not so suitable prospect wants me, I am wise enough to turn the offer down instead of settling for less than I deserve.

It is because when a suitable prospect rejects me, I know it has nothing to do with sleeping with the guy on the first date, or not. It has nothing to do with my age, religion, race, color, looks, etc.

The way I see it, it has to do with fate, karma, destiny, luck.... or whatever you want to call it.

I would like to think that if the right man (or woman ) is out there for me, that somehow we will meet at the right time.

So, I am still waiting for that special someone who is as deserving of me as I am deserving of him.
