Hi, friends. What are your views about people living 'single'. Has single no value? How their feelings will be in given situations. Can they really enjoy life and if so, upto which stage? What are the suggestions you make for them to live happily? Do you know anybody?

That is not true. Everyone has a value in this world. Also, being single doesn't mean you can't be happy or you are meaningless. I believe it would be up to a person whether she/he choose to be a single or with a partner. There are lots of things to do to be happy, they just have to find the true meaning of happiness within themselves.

Hi snakequeen. I know alot of single people. Some of whom, are single by choice and loving it. Although i'm in a relationship i'm considered single, and i've accomplished alot..i have my own home,car and money, i support both my children and myself very well, and all without a husband..And yes i am happy and enjoying life. Dont get me wrong i'm not against marriage, but it's not something that is required to make me happy.

My Mom was a single parent after my father was killed, and is still single. She lives a very full life. She dates, but she really enjoys being single. She has a lot of friends and stays very busy. She helps a lot of people in her community also. I don't think she would be able to do all of this if she were tied down. So for her, it works very well.

Living Single or married is an option of an individual.This aspect cannot be generalized..If some one is happy being single..theres no point in getting into a relationship. There are many great people who have been single all their lives For eg: Kalam,Vajpayee,Vivekananda...And they are happy.

it is a matter of choice.. to be single.. to have a partner. it is like choosing to be happy or not, alone or with somebody. my friend... do not think you can be happy or you can feel that your life is complete if you have a partner... always remember you do not need someone to make you complete. we are complete by ourselves. our lives' hapiness does not depend alone on romantic love.. there is more to life than being in love with another person.

I am single. I am single since birth. I have never been attached to anyone. Yet, I consider myself valuable and I am happy. Singleness doesn't mean that we should be isolated from the world of those who are in a relationship. Life is great when you are single. I do have my family, my friends, my officemates, my nieces and my relatives. I do things that I enjoy with or without someone, such as singing, reading, writing, talking to friends, discussing here in mylot, eating a lot, going outdoors, jogging, volunteering and other stuffs that would make me valuable. I am single and I am happy.

for me, being single is a choice..i dont think being single has no value because single people are happy being single..that's what they want for their life, it's their decision..there are lots of them having this kind of decision in life and they more happeir being single..

i am single, 43 and no kids. i am happy and at peace because i dont have the headaches that most married people i know have with their spouses, kids, etc. so, i would rather be single and at peace rather than married and suffer. i never want to get married for the hell of it just to be married or reproduce...whatever...that sounds so pathetic, needy and depressing...and let's not forget desperate...and probably end up divorced later anyway because married for the wrong reason... if i fall in love with the right person and it just feels right, then i will get married. but if i dont, then oh well. at least, i didnt waste my life for the hell of it, and going through hell for someone...
