Why are you single?Page 9 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)
Several reasons. I'm only 27, and in no hurry to rush off and get married and have kids this second, and I've not met anyone I'd really like to be around all that often. The truth is, I don't mind being alone. I've never really been that girl in high school who has to have a boyfriend every 5 seconds or she will just "die," and college was the same way. I think I am still young yet.

unhappyness is inside
as unsutisfied pride
sometimes it is hard to cary on
as the mood in vain is gone
too many things at the time
feels like commiting a crime
as stomach has a butterfly
and to fight I seaze to try
what else there is to do?
as nothing falls out through?
24 years in vain
I am single again
it is my pride
makes me unhappy inside
if I only knew?
now what do I do?
single or married,
I feel like alive burried,
if happiness is what I thought,
being single only pain brought,
never gonna fall again
as relationships are pain,
if happiness is inside,
why did I ever cried?

Many women choose the man. Today, many women are more independent and they become more demanding of what a man must have and be. They fair better being single.Interests and girlfriends to do things with. Men are more lone wolf. I find many women past 40 who were never married or lived with a man are just princesses who never woke up to reality.Women talk about cheats.But today many women are the ones cheating.Women choose the bad boy and then complain about how he treats them.Men and women are looking for traits of the other that are very rare to find in someone unattacted.As we age, we seem to want more of the other person which is not a wise move. Plus people don't look at the person.Character and personality.They look at what they look like.Where they live.How much they have.What they have.They look for reasons to reject.Women over 40 want travel and fine dinning which really isn't very important.Women want to sell (themselves).Men are the buyers.But today many women have the means to buy but won't play that role unless they take on the role of the successful man.Cougar hunting is the term today.Womens' new freedom haven't always been a good thing for them.Many women have become men in manner,clothing and talk.This is very unattractive to many men.

I am single today not by choice. Sometimes things happen that are beyond our control. I was married and now I am not and dating has not been a very positive experience for reasons unbeknownst to me! For one thing........it has been difficult to meet new people and make new friends at this point of life. Cannot meet people through work (not ethical) and even friendships as a result of my role are not ethical. Don't know where to go to meet other singles my age and the dating site experience has been weird to put it mildly. I think people are afraid and we all come with our past experiences and we all have expectations that are not always realistic and if we have been single long enough, we are not willing to give up the freedom that being single accompanies.

I would love to meet that special someone, but I don't know how.

Think about compromise.Look for people who seem to be normal with normal problems.Their out there.But they are rejected for the wrong reasons.People are looking for someone to be perfect at middle age and have a big income and issues.But then they get involved with the rich good looking guy with the angier problem or drugs or drinks to much or cheats or sexual diseases.

What a crock. How obnoxious also to say all divorced women with children are needy


I thought it read little_mermaid that all needy men I meet want divorced women with needy children

Obviously, I am single because I haven't found Mr Right....it seems that online dating sites are FULL of Mr RightNows....and that doesn't interest me.

Well I seem to be a real a$$ pipe magnet for one, so I made up my mind many years ago that I would much rather be alone than in a completely fukked up relationship (had my share believe me). It's a shame though, because society lables you a complete loser unless you have a partner. I'd still rather be alone than in the wrong relationship. I will say this though, counseling people about this makes me a whole sh!t load of money, so you all keep having wrong relationships and I'll make even more money........ and I say......... THANK YOU!!!!

"Why have you chosen to be unattached?"

Chosen? Cancer is not a choice. I've got the letter saying "Please go on with a life where you can be happy".

Phrasing this as a choice seems like an odd viewpoint. Even when I was a clumsy desperate geek in the eighties, my singlehood wasn't a "choice". Or perhaps it was. I was looking for perfection, which severely restricts the list of candidates.

because I have learned that there is much more to life than not being single and that by not being single your life becomes interrupted by someone who, ultimately, isn't worth the interruption.
