so, why are you still single?Page 5 of 75    (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)
I have find this question to be somewhat challenging as, to me, it implies the most important aspect in life is to be involved. In my opinion, this is rushed into too early by many including myself and after I got divorced I realized the significance and value in growing first as an individual. I respect those of you who have waited for the perfect person. Further, I believe experiencing life, obtaining a formal education and getting to know who you are as an individual are much more important then being involved in the beginning of our lives. I think it is great people focus on themselves and their lives first and then when they are established, they may wish to seek a partner but only if they desire ... at least then you know who you are, what your needs are and what kind of person you can share values with . This, in my mind, is what makes a good relationship and one for longevity. Besides if you meet someone on your 40's, according to statistics, that still gives you 30 years to share with one person... isn't that long enough? This is just my opinion

Good attitude.......And you know that you have many more years before you have to worry about a thing.

Many women that are healthy and in shape can enjoy a normal birth well into their 40's, so you have much time to decide on who you want, what you want, and when you want it.......

Good luck......

Just my opinion........

I get asked why I haven't married anyone which I answer because I have not found anyone I wanted to marry. Same as this question...simply because you have not found anyone yet you wanted to be in a serious relationship other explanation is needed.

Im single because i prefer to be. I love the chase and the attention of all the men. I Love being sinlge and independent taking care of myself no one to anwser to. Im not single at the mens choice if it were up to several of them i would be taken bound. I love enjoying the single life. No one can compare to my deceased husband the way he treated and loved me.

Why do I THINK I'm single or the truth? I'm extremely self-critical so the truth is likely kinder but I'm not sure what it is in this case. So, my version...I'm not very attractive, I assume people see me as ugly, I've got acne, I try too hard (someone told me that one), I'm too intense, I'm insane...I don't know, guys just don't like me in that way and it makes me cry. I'm 30 and have never had a boyfriend or loved anyone. I think I figured out how but have no one to practice on.

I hate when that happens. It's happened to me a few times on this site. So, I no longer rely on this site to actually find people to date. I haven't met anyone yet. It kind of sucks, but oh well.

Because I only just discovered what it really means to be single. I've changed my perspective and know more about myself and what I want. Right now, I'm just satisfying my needs without commitment. There's so much pressure to meet someone and become their SO that it isn't even fun anymore. So, if I meet someone while I'm out having fun and making friends, so be it. I'm happier because of it. Besides, people are more attractive when they're satisfied within themselves. I'm just keeping my options open.

^^^^Rock on!

From what I've heard, it's when you're not looking that the "right" guy finds you I'm just going to have my fun for now.

I'm single because there isn't a man out there that could handle getting involved in a serious relationship with me.

It's because I am ugly, socially retarded and have poor personal hygene. I also prefer the company of sheep.

that's awesome! I'll have to remember that next time one of my family members asks me why I'm single...But, in answer to the OP's question - I haven't found Mr. Right yet. But, I am content with my current situation, until he shows up!!

I'm still single because I haven't found the right person yet...whoever that I can also be very picky.
I think most of the time its women who get the weird looks when it comes to being single and in their 30's. Some people still think we need to be married to be happy. Others believe that if you are not married or in a relationship then you will automatically be lonely. I know people who are single and who are not lonely. It all depends on how you view life and what you make of it.
Now when it comes to me I am a little bit lonely, but not so lonely that I am willing to take anyone that comes

I was in a crappy marriage ( not pointing fingers, honestly ) and now that I am single I am reminded on my college roomate's bumper sticker ( he was taking aviation )
" it is better to be on the ground wishing you were in the air , than in the air wishing you were on the ground" I now am waiting for the perfect one, and do not care who has a problem with it.
