Why are you single?Page 7 of 50    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38, 39, 40, 41)
Single? Don't know why...we all have our little idiosencracies(?) that drive people crazy, maybe I have everyone elses share too. I am independent, never been married, Christian lady. I work hard, keep fairly clean house(homeowner). I pay all my bills myself, etc. I have always wanted to be married and have kids, was all I wanted to do when growing up, some people wanted to be firmemn and actors, and hold jobs.. I wanted to stay home and have kids, and take care of my husband. Funny how time changes things. I'm proud of what I have accomplished by myself, but would love to have someone to share them with and to just come and talk to. (My dog is 15 yrs old and deaf...like she could answer me anyway) I've been told my standards are too high. Some peoples standards are they have to have beautiful women/men who are SMART and honest and kind, and etc.....We are not all perfect. I have my standards but not shallow ones. I am always told there is someone out there. If it is in His plan, then I'll just have to keep waiting for my mate to come along!!!!

Why are you single?


Um...cuz I'm not seeing anyone?

Mostly because I made that lovely transition from being in school to suddenly not. And most people in that time suddenly find that a lot of their friends forget to contact them.

So yeah, just a lack of options. Hopefully being here will change that!

Because I am no good in relationships. Seriously. Ever notice how people can never find the right person? That the problem isn’t with them, it’s with the people with whom they have been involved. Well, I know I’m the problem

I remain single because I hold onto and cherish the best things in my life - my 3 amazing children and my newly added dog.

I am not looking to to the in/out of relationship thing and have it affect my family....not until I am truely ready

single because i'd rather be alone than be in a bad relationship... single because i got divorced rather than stay in a bad marriage... single because it's hard to meet people, people you wanna meet that is... single because i want true REAL hot intense vibrant deep luminous love, a bond that is transcendent and unbreakable and unbelievably real, and i haven't found it yet.

I am single because I wanted to own myself what I own. I am not selfish. I wanted kids and she didn't then I had to leave (after 24 years of relationship). Being 40 and seeing that dating sucks, I found out that the option of staying single is good.

I'm single because I no longer trust people and because I'm not happy with my life. It seems like I've been burned so many times in the past 5 years that I just no longer have faith in anyone or anything. I even moved 1900 miles from where I lived my entire life until 3 1/2 years ago and cut off all contact with my family and old friends.

I've always been kinda shy and insecure even though I've been told many times that I'm good looking. I don't believe it though because if I was good looking then why do women seem to ignore me? Almost all my dating experiences and relationships experiences have been unpleasant too. I've been cheated on, lied to, led on, been through too much game-playing, etc., to have any faith or trust in women. About the time I start to get up the courage to try again the old memories come flooding back of past experiences and I just say "fukk that, I'm not going to go through that again." I've pretty much given up completely and refuse to put my heart and emotions out there for somebody else to screw with and cause me more grief.

I'm also not happy with my life either. I have a job I hate and since I have no degree or special trade skills that ae applicable to where I live the future doesn't look too bright about changing the situation. I'm 34 and feel like my life is slipping away from me with no chance for improving things.

Obviously I'm in no position for a relationship since I can't get my life together.

I'm single by choice. I could be in a relationship, but why if it's not with someone you feel is long term material? I'd rather be alone than with the wrong person. I think both single and being with someone has its postives and its negatives. I can handle being either one. I'd still like to have a chick come along and knock my socks off, tho!


...my sentiments zigackly, luv2!!!!

Wife left me for my son's Boy Scoutmaster who's still married to his former wife. What a role model both these losers are but especially the Boy Scouts have no guts to get rid of him because he's still a "leader". What morals is that bunch is instilling in my boy or all the others?


wow, yea, i see what you mean... what's wrong with people, geeeeeeeeeezzzzzzzzzz.

looking forward to a better relationship with a better person...? yep.

Got to agree with pulse meddle on that one. Being here to meet cool people and check out the forums is cool too...I never saw being single as a bad thing.
