it really ticks me off when people ask me why i still don't have a bf. is it so wrong that i like being single and free? more often than not, people would assume of you're an SSB is either you're not good looking or simply prefer one's own gender...

I guess there are some people who believe that having a relationship is a necessary part of life. Don't make it bother you so much. It's just a difference in points of view. I myself don't think of people who remain single that way. I believe that everyone has his or her own views of how to live a happy life. If being single and free is your happiness, then that's great! No one should judge you about your looks or anything else just because you choose to be single!

i like being single and have more primary space too.i don't care if anybody said that i don't have a bf. i think you really don't need to worry about other people's saying.just act as yourself, oneday the right person will come to you at the right time.

Even I'm single since birth.But none have ever asked me why I'm single.I'm very much friendly and i never feel lonely as i have many friends.I have never felt a need of having a gf and I'm not in hurry to get into a relationship.It will happen when the real time comes.I too enjoy my single status a lot.I have seen my friends facing many problems with their gf's.I never say being in relationship is bad, but for me I enjoy my single status and never felt guilty being single because I enjoy 100% freedom !!!

Hi there meiji15! It's not bad having no boyfriend. If you prefer being single and free, so be it. Do not get affected by what other people say about being single or single since birth at that. What matters is that you are happy. I am single but in a relationship. Most of my friends are married with kids. I must admit that sometimes I get annoyed when other people would ask me if I am already married and if I tell them that I am not, they would start telling me that I am not getting any younger. Oh please! I can always wait for the right time. Take care!

I'm also single since birth. I like being single because I am free to do anything that I want at any time of the day. There are also a lot of people who asks me why I don't have a boyfriend. I have had some suitors but I rejected them because I think that I'm not yet ready to commit. I also want a boyfriend but I guess now is not the right time for me to have one. I don't care what others would think of me, I'm happy with being single, shouldn't they just be happy for me? Just don't mind them.

WELL, SEEMS RELATED TO MY DISCUSSIONS POSTED WEEK AGO, KINDLY CHECK MY POST: http://www.mylot.com/w/discussions/1449823.aspx I AM NOW REACHING NY 32 YEARS OF EXISTENCE BUT STILL I AM SINGLE. I LIVE ALSO ALONE IN MY APARTMENT BECAUSE MY FAMILY IS FAR AWAY FROM ME BECAUSE OF MY WORK AND BUSINESS. GOOD LOOKING IS NO THE BASIS OF BEING MARRIED BECAUSE YOU CAN SEE MORE COUPLE PASS BY IN YOUR ARE THAT SEEMS YOUR PRETTY OR HANDSOME TO THEM. SIMPLY THE REASON IS: YOUR RIGHT MAN/WOMAN IS NOT YET COME TO YOUR WAY. LEARN TO WAIT AND EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED.

good for you that youre still a single until now..me, i have many relationships before but after i got pregnant and my x-bf leaves us, i havent think of having a boyfriend because for me, i would like not to search for the right person but to wait for him..it's a choice, and i'm sure it's also your choice to become SSB..and theres nothing wrong with that..having a boyfriend at the right time is much better..just wait..good luck

i am single since birth, and people have been asking me why. but it doesn't bother me at all because it is my CHOICE. I think it is God's plan for me not to have someone special yet, so i can concentrate more on my studies and priorities in life.

I think you should pick some book about relationship . One book I can remember is "Men from Mars , woman from venus" . Because I had few relationship problems and already have fixed . Hope this help.

I'm still single and I don't mind being one. So far, nobody has told me things like preferring same genders or me being ugly. I simply think that those who say such things are rude and should just mind their own business when it comes to one's own choice on either being single or not. Time will come for that, as I always think so.
