sport guy You figured this out in ONE DAY? Amazing! Maybe the ego check is a reality check. Same thing? Look you're young, and while we're all for making things happen, sometimes patience pays off.

Creative reasons why I am still single.....

1)Because I haven't found anyone to stuff undead midget monkey corpses full of apples and onions with me in the moonlight.

2) The voices hated my ex. And the voices are always right.

3) I'm NOT single. I just got tired of waiting in line for time with my Mormon husband.

4) Well actually, you are one lucky guy! I just completed the last operation in my gender reassignment!

5) Ninjas. The ancient blood feud of my family caused ninjas to target any possible love interests. Would you like to go out?

6) My boyfriend and I had a run in with pygmy cannibals on our vacation in Arkansas. I made it out alive, he was the soup du jour.

I think the reason people are single is because they ignored what their last partner told them they were doing wrong.


I think my ex is figuring it out one by one...I wonder if he'll get it ALL right before he dies!?!?!?

He has as good a chance of getting it right next time as you do; as we all do.


Considering how long it takes him to figure things out...I don't think so!!!!

Besides...that was SUPPOSED to be funny!!!!

Lemmie see ...

Reason # 1. She died.

Since then ...

I'm picky.

I enjoyed the intimacy too much to just get off on sport fu¢king now. Jumping into the sack just to have sex would cheapen what I hope one day to have again with a woman I feel is THAT special to me. Dumb? Maybe. Not for me. I don't think it will be for her either when we finally meet.

Almost everybody I've met since has lied (some WHOPPERS but the most common? Saying they were born one or two DECADES before their D/L indicates) or they've been divorcees terrified of making another mistake so if they detect a guy actually LIKES them, they run like he's Jack the Ripper.

Their loss but it doesn't do me any good either.

No one is an island... just cause you aren't dating someone or anyonre, doesn't mean you are single. Everyone has friends and family, no one is single.

Well, isn't obvious, the single women don't find me that great. Besides, I don't play the game like other people do, so I am not seen. That is fine by me, just means I have no one else to thank but myself for my accomplishments and the riches that comes with it.

LOL at anyone not getting that it's a rhetorical question. It's a conversational filler, just like "How are you doing?" at the beginning of conversations. Either give a quick, standard answer or just ignore it altogether. No one (except a lunatic) expects you to give some deep self-analysis on all the reasons you're single.

I get tired of being asked this question. If I had 10 bucks for every time I have been asked it, I'd be a rich woman. I'm single because I am. It's not a life style choice. Just the way it is right now. I'm running out of creative answers to this question. Any one care to help?

I hate this; I get emails, why are you single? I then write back,"why are you?". They then always say, "I guess thats a dumb question."

Wouldn't it be a lot worse if they said - "wow, I see why you're still single!"

Sabrosura, I so agree with you! Being single has never been as big as an issue for me as it has been to those around me who have thought I should have been 'snatched up long ago'.

I raised my daughter, put myself through college twice, kept my daughter in sports, and worked my darn tail off. I had time for a long term relationship in the midst of all that, too.

I lead a busy life and I am content in my own skin. My friends, my job which is incredibly fulfilling, my family, and my interests have me leading a good life. I have never been in any rush to jump into a relationship just for the sake of not having to say I am single.

There is nothing negative about being single, whatsoever...be happy and live life to its fullest and what is meant to be will happen. In the meantime, love yourself and the life you have....and ignore the negativity from others.

When I get asked that question, I usually respond with another question: What's wrong with being single?

Maybe the answer is "because I get grumpy with people even when they are clearly trying to compliment me."

Most people that I know ask me this same question over and over again. I have come to see this as an insult because they think something is wrong with me. Around here where I live, people put great emphasis on being married or in a relationship. I think it's stereotypical of married couples to put that kind of pressure on someone such as myself. It's almost like they are bound and determined to get you attached so they do not feel threatened by their own insecurity in any way. It makes me feel like they are trying to say to me,"Well, there must be something wrong with you."
Usually I tell people like this, "I'm single because I just will not settle for anything less than what I consider to be Mr.Right."

I ask myself this question all the time.
I have narrowed it down to two things:

1. I always choose the butthole
2. the butthole always chooses me.

Okay thats my theory- others theories that others see is my problem:

1. They have no freaking clue.

Its interesting as I scope out some profiles when Im bored I wonder
the same thing- why are they here, they have tons to offer.
They seem like a very good person. I think it comes down to that our
timing is off- we are just not in the right place at the right time or in the
right place, but its the wrong time.

Hope springs eternal and I feel eventually we will all meet what is right
for us- in due time.
