I've been single all my life. I used to think when I was younger that Mr. Right would just show up and solve all my problems and change my life dramatically. You knwo the whole Prince charming thing, but deep down I had the fear I would alwasy be alone. Now, after many years I have found strength in the fact that I have solved my own problems and I am in charge of changing my life dramatically. And when and if he comes along I am ready to accept love into my life. Because I have seen too many people seek others for that "something missing in my life" only to find them missing a little later. It is true you cannot love anyone and anything without loving yourself first. It is your first true love. I am content being single, but I do miss the comfort of someone who cares about you enough to just think of you that way. I was spoiled as a child, but grew up fast. I miss that, and it would be wonderful to have a man treat me that way (as vain as that sounds) because I des4erve it. ANd my love life....well, nonexistent. Sometimes I still hear that voice inside of me saying that I will always be alone. I try to not listen to it. And hold on to the hope that there really is someone out there for everyone.

I have been single for 3 yrs now and yes it get's lonely. I have been wanting to find someone but the only thing holding me back is I am afraid of getting hurt like I have in the past. I feel safe and content being single but then again I miss being with someone to hold, share things with,do things with,ect. I keep telling myself not every one is like that but it has been done to me so many times that I fear that it going to happen again. Maybe someday I will find that special person but for now I sit on the inside looking out wondering when I'll ever come out of my shell again.

I have been single for about nine years now. I have had two deep relationships in that time, but still was not happy. The one thing that is different now is that I am in a relationship with God. I finally found what was missing in my life. Now, when not if, I meet that special someone I know that it will be right and I will be happy. You have to find what is missing in your life before you can share it with someone else. Be happy with yourself, because if you aren't happy with yourself how can you expect someone else to be happy with you. If you feel that you have to have someone in your life to complete you then you aren't happy with yourself. Look for you, not someone else, when you find yourself, then that special person will soon follow.

Single, but happy. That's the way to be if you can. Then you're not anxious. But always be on THE LOOKOUT. Just remember that after you are married or hooked up with someone get back to the other side of the fence is hard and damaging to the other person. So you this stage as preparatory.

I've been single for nearly a year and a half now. I've always been pretty content being single...and my love-life, besides when I was with someone was always non-existant. There is no situation to be happy with. *pauses then laughs* "There is no spoon." [/random] Sometimes I get a bout of nostalgia. I never NEEDED to be taken care of, but I always liked when people cared enough to want to.

I have been divorced for 8 years. But I have been in a relationship for three. I know now that he will never marry me, so I consider myself single but dating. And no I am not contented, just biding my time.
