I don't have that many involved friends in one room at once, so I hardly remember dealing with this - and if I do, then it's usually them asking what I did as they seem to find my life more exciting.

However, when I hear someone complain about something relationship oriented - I pipe right up about how I'm glad I don't have that problem (and I mean it).

I used to.

I used to hang with couples all lovey dovey.
Did feel I was missing out.

Same folks fight all the time now.
So I don't worry it anymore.

I think most of my married friends and those with long term significant others, seem more interested in what I am up to, who I am with, what I am doing, who I am doing, where I am going, on and on.

The grass seems always greener on the other side, so, as we are sometimes feeling awkward because we do not have that one person to deal with, talk about, and spend time with, most others that have the norm, think that our way is much more free in many many ways.

The one part that I do notice the "left out" thing, will be when trips are planned, or rides, or certain parties, that all there have a partner to share it with, relate to, and fill that void, while many times, I do not.

Dating others can and is fun, but I still prefer more exclusivity when it comes to adventures and enjoying them with many of my family and friends, because taking someone with you that is not a real relationship, can end up not being quite what you thought it would be, because you do not know each other well enough to make sure that does not happen.

Just my opinion.......
