WoW !!! I'm single by choice... I am learning its better than compromising my sanity for somone who cannot comprehend and appreciate a load of things I know so intimately that I sometimes take them for granted....
Also, None so far I find inticing enough to really want (intellectually and socially). My standards are a bit high but I think It's also a bit of my location.... Way too many sharks with youth, cash, great looks. (so much for humorous,charming and not so bad looking.....).



Also many women around here seem to like being treated much more poorly than I have learned to treat them...:

I had a "boyfriend" stay at my house and house sit and take care of my animals while I went on a trip. I had the gas tank filled up before I left because of heat.. when I got home I asked him how it went and if he stayed at the house. He said "No.. I came and fed up then went home because YOU RAN OUT OF GAS, there was no heat"... I was like... hmmmm....
"Did you check the pilot light?"... and he said "huh?"... NEXT!!!

Because all the nice, beautiful ladies live too far away and long distance relationships have never worked for me.

I'm not going to ever "settle" and to be honest.... the more I talk to my "couple friends" they honestly are miserable.. and even if they aren't.. they all SWEAR if anything happens to their spouse they will NEVER get remarried. Ok.. I'll take their word for it and stay single.

"I've stopped rescuing the sad, unemployed, emotionally challenged." Yup, sure can relate to that one. Fortunately for me, I stopped that about 15 years ago and have never looked back.

I have never married because:

1. I have never found anyone who would make my life better than it already is.

2. If I married, chances are I would be signing up for a lot more work i.e., twice as much cooking, cleaning, laundry, shopping, entertaining, looking after their children while they have visitation, etc. because the males of my generation have a tendency to not do very much other than watch sports with the clicker.

3. I have kind of gotten used to being only "half a person" because that's how society looks upon you if you are not part of a couple. Somehow society feels much better about a person who has married and then divorced. Can't quite figure that one out - I guess it is better to try and ruin two lives than to never marry and be content? Beats me!

4. Getting married just for the sake of being a "couple" and then getting a divorce when it doesn't work out hasn't really appealed to me a whole bunch. By staying single, I don't have to divide all of my assets that I have worked my butt off before the "other half" came along. I worked hard and struggled for them, they are mine.

So, I can say that at my advanced age, I am truly an old maid who makes a wonderful friend! I wouldn't have it any other way.

Still single because there is so much less pressure and it's an amazing way of life anymore! Too much dishonesty and evil out there! No one to have to answer to...Enough love in my life through my friends and family!!! And that is UNCONDITIONAL!!! Nothing can compare!

speaking of BAD DOGGIES... thats the reason I'm still single. Too many men want the FAST lane and I believe it takes more time to make it work. Sure we can all hump and have sex, but if you are like me... REALLY looking for a great guy with longterm potential I won't accept the BAD DOGGIES coming arround my bush!

I do not understand people who can't be alone.. I enjoy it. I enjoy being with someone once in awhile but right now I like the single life. I've always either had a husband or a "boyfriend" and right now I just do as I please.

What I love are the people who ask "Are you still single?" and when I said yes, would then say "Why? What's wrong with you?"

Why ......

(A) Because I live under the only tree on the only hill in a 300 mile radius...
(B) Due to the fact the the number of men here out number the women 6 to 1 and that woman is married...
(C) I would say I lived in a one horse town but then I'd have to buy a horse....
(D) All the women I find interesting live so far away....

And the correct answer is.......

Sometimes LUCKY.. sometimes not... Right now I feel extremely lucky to be single. I keep getting around people in relationships who are not happy. Men and women are always telling me how they are unhappy and wish they could have my life. Well, they could but it's too much trouble for them to actually have to get out and fend for themselves. It is more comfortable to stay in a bad relationship than break away. I have the best of both worlds right now, I have men I date or spend time with.. but I can always go home...

Its the same old problem, when you're with someone you wish you had more freedom but when ur single u wish u had someone to share ur life with .Its a tough balancing act but until ur ready to make a compromise with someone u truly care for, finding "the one" is gunna b tough
