Do you know , I am happy I am single. I am not interesting anybody, can prepare everything in my life. Only myself I take decisions for every one problem. Otherwise I have too much friends to spend a free time.Is it nessessary to have a family for any price and be unhappy?

I have to ask...how old are you? For me, I would rather not be single, thank you, and I have been single now for 28 years since my divorce. Now I'm in my 50s and frankly, I don't want to die alone and unloved. I would love to have someone who cared about where I was and what I was doing. At this point in my life I don't feel like I have anything but my daughter keeping me alive. Without her, I have no reason to live because no one else loves or needs me. I have been alone too long and now the chance of attracting a gentleman to share my life with is pretty nil as I am old, fat, and disabled and I find the whole being alone with no one to tell me I am precious to them very depressing. I'm glad you are enjoying being single. I hope you can continue being happy, no matter whether you are single or not. Have a great day.

I can understand your feelings about being alone. With my daughter being now a senior in high school, I'm looking at her leaving the nest some day soon maybe. It I do at times feel it'll be lonely. I haven't hit the points where I I'm thinking I'm gonna die alone, but I'm probably approaching that pretty fast. This gives me something else to think about.

Well, I have health issues that have me in that mindset. I am disabled and my daughter will be going off to college in two more years so I am fighting this feeling that my life is over. It's hard to combat. I've been alone for so long, much of that time raising my daughter by myself, that it's hard for me to mix with others which makes the feelings of being alone even more desolate. I can remember a time, though, when I did enjoy being single...back when I could still dance and do things. I'm just not there anymore. Getting old. lol

I don't think it is necessary especially if you will be unhappy. But I do believe that some people really crave the family setting and they are defined by that. It just depends on what you want in your life. I wanted a family and all of that so I adopted a child and then later got married. I later got rid of the husband. LOL But I love being a mother. I have friends that just have pets, no kids, no spouse and one with no pets. They seem happy and content with how their lives are. And I figure if it floats their boats, I'm happy for them.

There are so many happy singles around the world. I live in a economically developing but culturally traditional country where it has become an increasingly disturbing social phenomenon that the number of singles, especially single women above the age of 30, keeps growing. The tremendous pressure sustained by these singles in their thirties has led to growing resistance or doubts against marriage. Over the past centuries the main role of a woman, in a very traditional sense, is giving birth to children, and if she cannot deliver a baby she will be considered as invaluable to her husband's family irrespective to her generosity, talent or hard work which contributes to happiness of the family in many other ways.

I think that both to be single or engaged have some advantages and disadvantages. I agree with you that you have more time for friends when you are single but people need some company sooner or later. Maybe you will change your mind later and you will find somebody with who you will be as happy as now when you are single. But I think than in your case it doesnt matter if you are single or you have somebody the most important thing is that you are happy .
