Very interesting topic, right? Hmmm anyway when it comes to that question I really makes myself to think. It's because I'm in a relationship right now and I think It's not good if I say single, right? To be fair two points of view I will state here. One, being single in a positive way, is likely you are free to do everything. Two, in a relationship, is likely you have someone to be there always when you needed.

I prefer to be in a relationship. I love having someone by side who I can share aspects of my life with. Sure I have my friends, but its different when you have someone you love. I dont think my life would be the same if I didn't have my boyfriend in my life supporting me and helping me through different things in life.

Yeah, it's so nice that you have someone that you can really rely on.. A person that won't leave you in times of your needs. The hardest part of it is to loose someone that you used being with him. A hurtful reality. But come what may, as long as he is still there, you have to enjoy every moment that you are together.

sometimes,I used to prefer staying single because if you look at what is happening in some marriage today you will not even want to marry but at the same time if you look at some other marriages,what they are enjoying you will love being in a relationship.Meanwhile I would have prefer staying single but there are a lot of pressures around that can not allow me to stay single.So,I will like to be in a relationship because they say two heds are better than one.

Yeah I do agree with you that it's better being single than married because of what really happening to most marriages like annulments, divorced and etc. But on the other side, for me, we could not experienced what's the feeling of being inloved, someone will take care of you, children, a happy family and someone who could share your problems and helped you and be with you in times that you left alone as you have said, two heads are better than one.

Right now I am in a relationship and I have to say it is the best thing. I love having that companionship and being able to come home from work to someone I love. While I am in a relationship, I still can do what I want. I talk to him and let him know. Like I am planning on going out with one of my friends on Saturday and I just told him about it. He said...okay. If you have a relationship where you cannot do things you like to do or what to do alone or together. Its not healthy.

enjoy life as it goes. if you are single then enjoy that life and make it more good. if you happen to enjoy life with a relationship then enjoy that too with a smile.

being single means - you get to do a lot of things on your own, no need to text or let your bf/gf know where you are.. you are free to do anything you want, you are free to flirt, mingle and go out with anyone you like, no commitments... when you are in a relationship you have a steady person you know that cares for you, one person that will take care of you, go out with you every time, on schedule, someone that will probably be with you all the time... and hopefully you will not be alone when you grow old...

At this point, with my BF leaving for abroad, I am just as good as single except that I am committed to one person and cannot see other people. But when it comes to having someone around to call on in need, then I just don't have that privilege anymore. It's easy to say being single is better when you've never been in a relationship or you are in a relationship that just isn't working. There's more to being in a relp than just needing each other. You just cant love because you need someone.

we share the same points. i think being single gives you the freedom to do whatever you like without someone to hold you back for doing this or that but isn't it nice if you had someone to hold you back and argue with if you made wrong decisions? lol!
