pcl2p: That was a bug in my profile...I had the Admins hook us up!

BTW, thanks guys.

Happy birthday, soon. I know it's early - but if I don't tell you now, I'll forget. I was gonna put that under About Me on my profile, but...I ehhh....

OT: I'm changing my first answer to ...because of preposterous oversights!

I became single because my ex said she didn’t want to be married anymore. I have remained and will remain single because I’m not stupid.

Single for 2 reasons

I left my Ex-wife after 5 years of torture (You do not want to know someone with a violent degenerative depressive dependancy disorder.) attempting to deal with many serious issues. Eventually it was I walk out or one of us doesn't (never laid a finger on her except to remove the knife from my shoulder after a half hearted attempt to kill me in my sleep, stayed for another 2 years.). If you ever catch your self thinking about body disposal it is time to call the relationship well and truly over. The weird thing is she is always ok when on her own, but as soon as she feels dependant, at all, she starts to get depressed and it keeps getting worse, it just cycles.

My ex Fiance decided after being together for 2 years that she felt she was smothering herself/me rushing the relationship (she was pushing, not me). Well after three weeks she then said it was actually fear of committment by her, for 6 months after that she said she didn't deserve the relationship. At least we are still good friends.

Besides that, it is very difficult to meet people socially in my area. There's only around 150 single females of reasonably close age, and most of them I am not attracted too, for various reasons (try being a social liberal person in the second most redneck / conservative location in your nation). Others are married and I don't go there.

So scarcity is the reason at the moment.

why....
Posted: 8/9/2005 5:57:43 AM
The main reason is probably because I am always so busy with working one and a half jobs, I just don't have access to meet new people, probably why I'm on here.

Single for 5 years, my choice. If I am ever going to be in a relationship again it has to be right.

I didn't plan on it. Turns out that I'm prolly hard to live with......go figure. lol

Actually, my ex went nuts. One to many scripts from the head-shrinker. She was just depressed and needed to go jump out of an airplane and get an adrenaline rush. Instead, those baztards kept sticking her on pills and changing them. She was no where near sane. She seems to be better now....but, once you've seen that shyt...you're always wondering what's next.
And a lot of it was my fault. I thought she was just being a bytch. In retro....I realize that it wasn't her fault. And I could have been more sympathetic instead of just crawling into a shell.

Live and learn.

On edit:
I guess I should clarify a couple things...

There have never been 2 people that were more in love than her and I. After our son was born, I got off track. Business came before everything. I left all of the household and child rearing to her. She came last. Only sexually was I involved. That was prolly the main reason for her depression. 24/7 mom with no breaks.....plus having to mother an adult. I can see where that would depress anyone. Sorry, baby.

i agree with hotbush.......

I would rather be single than with a liar and minipulator. I have no room in my life for someone to waste my time.

Because i'm always viewed as the friend..never the one guys go after romantically
Because guys dont see me as a romantic conquest
Because guys on here arnt attracted to me

Because I know what I want outta relationship and I'm not going to settle for just any tom dyck or harry that comes along. Ive been put through hell and back again..and I'm not doing that again. I know I deserve to be treated like a Queen..so Until my King comes along...I will stay single. I am not going to fall back into my past patterns.

Because I choose to be. I haven't found that special someone to tie me down. I date, but nothing serious.

I'm single because you have to be really careful who you go out with. If you dive into a relationship it can be disaster as the girlfriends beliefs may clash with yours.

(IE: Girl bringing up conversation: "I dont believe in sex before marriage and when people think of or hear love they only think of the boyfriend/girlfriend kind which is wrong"

Guy (thinking to himself): "Oh boy! What kind of mess did I wind up in? I gotta spend more time with other people, I wish I went out with someone else"

I am single because I chose to not fight a losing battle with an alcoholic.

I am quite comfortable with not being in a relationship. It's very liberating. When something happens, it happens. until then I am living life! Life's too short to do anything else.

Because I’ve gotten so good at it. Now it sounds like I am not the only one and I’ll have to find something else to be good at.

in the words of Foamy:

..The other type of person are those insignificant peons, who just have to validate themselves by being in a relationship. You know what! It's pathetic, it's weak minded and you show no inner strength whatsoever. Get over the girlfriend, get over the boyfriend or whatever the fuk your yearning for and live fuking life.

though crudely spoken, carries a really good hidden meaning too it. I choose to be single because I'm happy with myself just the way that i am. Sure i wouldn't mind finding someone to date, however its not soo i feel "complete" but more so that my lifestyle and life choices are "complimented" as well as hers.

Just never really tried looking until now. Not into the bar scene so it made it easier to stay unattached. Plus having 2 daughters at home I didn't want to do anything that was against the morals and standards of conduct that I was trying to instill in them.

I'm single cuz i haven't been looking and I just had some issues I had to deal with...like..I just always assumed no one was attracted to me. But now I'm changing...physically and mentally and I'm dating. Which is even weirder cuz now I really have no clue what I want..fun or a relationship??? NO CLUE..but whatever happens, happens for a reason.
