I have been focusing on my biz lately. And everyone I meet is so materialistic..and I have money too! Just that I dont care about a fancy car and a big house. I will get that if I ever do get married.

Because I haven't found my perfect match yet!

I've thought that I had a few times, but I was wrong.

Maybe I'm too picky, but there turns out to be something terribly wrong with everyone.
Uh, let's see... Bi-polar, Addictive personality, Won't keep a job, Controlling, oh, and moved 2000 miles away for a job, but would like me to come!

i'm single cuz i still haven't found anyone that feels as if i'm worth driving up to see. i'm looking for friends..........and hopefully, maybe someday take things from there if i find the right person.

oh, i almost forgot one important thing............my ex hubby won't file the divorce papers and i just don't have the money right now to do it. when i do, he better watch out cuz i'm going after him for my % of the equity of the house among other things as well.

I love this question ...lol ......here 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.

Why am I single............cuz I was never asked to get married!!

But seriously folks, out of curiousity.....is it really worth the time an effort to find that *someone special* using on-line dating sites? I would appreciate any insights.. Thanks in advance!

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!

Well if we all knew why we were single then we would have no such need for sites like POF.

I honestly think I am single because there is a false perception with girls I date that I expect them to to be perfect. If that makes any sense.

Most men do not prefer a woman of substance who is educated, feisty, and who has not been married and has no children. The things that I view as attributes seem to be seen as negatives to men.

Don't want to be but cannot find anyone suitable?
Where the heck are they?
Normal, just normal, seems simple enough, but so tough to find.

I just cannot find an Italian man who has a stellar sense of humor who enjoys cooking, singing, dining in eclectic restaurants, looks smashing in a suit, and is crazy about me.

My job entails working with children who sometimes have a lot of problems, both physically and emotionally. This means that I wear several hats at work, one being my social worker type hat when dealing with all the trauma and drama that their families seem to enjoy creating and thriving on at times. It is draining, although I give 200 percent of myself at work and love my job. Men who do not require me to deal with an excessive amount of drama and trauma in their lives are the ones who interest me, and these seem to be hard to find, being that I try to maintain a personal life that is free of drama and trauma...i.e....does he complement my life or complicate it?

Why am I single? Well, if I was in a loving, committed relationship, then I would miss all this sitting alone at night, staring at pictures on my computer, sipping my Black Russian, reading profiles of men who say, over and over again, that they are waiting for women to contact them, fun loving, beach hiking, gourmet cooks who prefer to watch a girl-flick with a box of tissues. This kind of sublime pleasure just wouldn't be the same if a thoughtful, emotionally generous man was sitting beside me at the computer saying things like "that one looks promising - why don't you contact him?", would it?
