I'm singel becaues the only girls that have every been interested in my were a little over the top.

Every girl I have ever had any interest in wouldn't even give me the time of day.

I"ve always been single, so there's prolly something pretty wrong with me.

I love this question is my answer to why I am single and loving it. Men are like candy. There are so many flavors and seeing life is so short , why settle for one , come on ladies , you wouldn't walk into a candy shop full of samples and test just one would you.

I'm not single by choice, someone else chose to end my husband's life. I've met a few guys, but there hasn't been any yet that sparks my interest. However, the past few years it's been my choice to remain single.

I didn't "Choose" to be unattached . .
I've been actively searching for the Last Partner that Either of us will ever need . .
ever-since [recovering from] losing my wife, in '98 . .
I made her a Promise . . and until I start actually start _FEELING_ my age . .
I will continue to find someone that I can
' . . Love . . as strongly . . and as completely . . as I did Her . . !!! '

There are several reasons...

* I need to learn how to be strong on my own... figure out who I am and what I want... love myself before I can love anybody else

* Relationships bring a lot of unneeded stress... I have enough of that in my life as it is

* I don't want to get hurt again

* I don't want to accidentally hurt anyone

* I don't really trust myself right now... am still getting back on my feel trying to make sense of things.

* A relationship is not one of my priorities... Family, Education, Friends and Health is.

* I'm not over my ex... not so much him... but how he impacted my life and turned my entire world upside down. I'm still dealing with the emotions attached to the memories.

*I don't really trust too many people right now

i get headaches that make dating impossible and relationships intolerable. so, i've remained single and quite happy about it. of course, i'd enjoy it more without the headaches.

Got married once, almost twenty years ago now, found out that it was all a rather meaningless gesture. The marriage lasted less than two years. She had an unannounced agenda that came to life during our honeymoon, no less. That, was that I was to be her slave, more or less, but, preferably more! Suddenly, I found myself without a vote in my own home, and life. Her way, or the highway was how it was going to be....
So...after having my life trashed out for two years, she bailed...only because I didn't. I think that was what she was after, then she could be victim! As it was, she had to settle for trashing me, and, twenty tears of work went down the tubes....not too mention my stomache lining and mental health.
Now that I've been educated, properly, in the realities of what it is to be a husband and a father, and what my legal rights are as such, single is preferable!
It's taken almost twenty years of work to get back to where I was, financially, mentally, and even healthy again, emotionally, as I was in my twenties.
Not terribly anxious to risk going through all of that again and don't have the years of life left to do it all again, anyhow!
I'm in my fifties now, past my "best before" date. I used to want for a "relationship" but, really don't give it much thought anymore. I have my galpals, and, do date from time to time. Sex is nice, however, I've learned that there's usually, a fairly hefty price tag attached to it.
Thinking of starting a new business venture soon. That will keep me most occupied and, rule me out for many females anyhow, most seem to hate start-ups, too time -consuming and risky.
If, and/or when, it becomes successful, there will always be lots of interested parties, once all of the heavy-lifting of getting there, is done!
In the meantime, I'm quite enjoying the forums!

I never chose to be single, I never chose to be lonely and ignored and misunderstood. I was put on this earth to endure low after low after low.....I thought my life had changed 2 years ago for the better. It did, until now. Now I'm back at square one only 2 years older. I do not believe anyone CHOOSES to live life alone, I believe it is a test from God to see how long we'll last.

I don't like commitment, I prefer peace, my freedom and other things. I think women are too hard to please so i rather be single.

Ok... I'm single because i have not been socialized in the realm of dating men. Previously I've dated and only have been with women for most of my life and after a less than amicable separation it was time to trade sides.

I don't know how to flirt, I don't know how to show interest.... I think people like to look at me like the "fuk'n'chuk" variety.

This isn't a sob story .. but a fact.

Got any pointers for someone who feels like they're in an awkward stage of their life?
