Single person can do anything, they are free to do whatever they want in life. No one will disturb them, they can go anywhere,everywhere, elsewhere. They found happiness and peaceful when they are in our society.Their focuses on friends,family.Some also afraid of falling in love because of the great impact to the person's life. Some people wanted to be alone and remain single because they enjoy the moments of being single.

Count me in too.Thats right, single people are free from any kind of tension and torture involved in a relationship. I find my friends in the worst possible situations I could ever imagine. Once we planned to play cricket in the evening but on our war to playground my friend's phone rang and it was his girlfriend... GF- "What doing..??" My friend- ".. aaahh... nothing..." GF- " can you pick me up for shopping..? My pal:".. sure baby.. coming " ... and I was like ".. what the ****..." Its good to be single, as you can stare as many chicks as you like with no one to bang your head from behind...

Hi there Blink, I am single and I love it. You are right to a point about single life but it does not necessarily mean that one is without obligations and responsibility. I was a single mom and so pretty much anything I chose to do, I had to first stop and consider what the impact would be on my children and so therefore...not free to just do anything. Not complaining because I loved being a single mom. Being married shouldn't be any different and shouldn't restrict your freedom but unfortunately in all too many, it does. I also know some married couples that are still very very happy after many years of maarriage. I wouldn't say that being single is better or visa versa. It all depends on your individual situation and the choices you make. If you make the right choice, marriage should not restrict your freedom or make you miserable. Likewise, being single doesn't automatically give you a life of freedome and blissful happiness.

Hello to you sid 556 Thank you for spazzing by and choosing this topic of mine to write something nicely. I'm glad people showing their thoughts and opinion about this topic. Upon reading your comments. I was amazed and paused for a seconds.I am truly moved by the words you've said. in this phrases " what the impact would be on my children and so therefore.. not free to just do anything" In my opinion being a single mom is not that easy because you are the one who finds physiologic needs to your child/children alone.Especially when they starting to asked many question which we could not answer directly because of many things that we would not allow to tackled or recall the past. Thought Humans are not perfect, we experience painful event in our life, We cannot blamed ourselves because of the bad situation happened in our life. We still found a ways to save it and trying to strive harder in order to sustain/support them what they needed.Human have ups and downs.We have freedom of choosing what is best for us. We all know some married couples; they are deeply in love each other, for many year has gone by,even though we can deny that their are so many instances that married couple put to test. Faithfulness and love for each other is one of the key in successful marriage.Being single also doesn't give an assurance of living a life that we wanted too. As long as were living here on Earth every person has its own purpose. And it's up to us how we deal the situation.

So true, so true! It is up to each of us to find our own happiness within ourselves. It really isn't about being single or not single at all. It's about being happy and content with whatever you choose to do in your life. I'm happy because I love my life as it is and the people I have in my life...what I do etc. If I were to choose to be with someone and become un-single then I would expect that person would only add to the happiness and contentment that I already have...not take away from it. If I started to feel trapped or losing my freedom then that would tell me the relationship is not right for me. If someone is not content in their relationship status or their job or whatever, it should be a signal to make some changes. I see that below someone said that one is bound to get bored being single sooner or later...not true if it is the right choice for you.

Yes, I am single right now and I'm enjoying it. I do believe that when you are ready to be in a relationship then the door will just open for you. As of this moment, I told myself that I am not ready for it and and I need this time to gain confidence for myself.

that's good to hear. I do also believe you need to value and learn first yourself than others. Loving yourself means, you take care and respect. Giving more time to assess where you can gain insights.

Strongly agree with blink69nix0 because if we are in a relationship with he or she so where is our freedom man?? I love to be single it will be much better for me. The region behind this is to there are only 5% of chances to get hurt. But in a relationship there are 70% chances to get hurt. But also 1 good thing about relationship is about trust & mutual understanding between both of them. If there is trust n understanding in a couple so i don't think there are chances to be get hurt.

Hello, blink69nix0. I am single because I recently broke up with my girlfriend. Many crazy things were happening. Anyway...I am free to do what I want, free to have as many friends as I want, etc. We remain friends, and at least that is a sign that I am growing up. Before I would keep my distance, and not worry about what she was doing. Now, if I have a question, she is there to lend a hand, or the other way around. That is okay in my book. Have a great day. :) :)

I am single right now and would love to keep the status for a longer time or maybe for the rest of my life. LOL. I love how my life is right now and would not want to have a partner who will stop you from doing those things. Anyway, having a partner isn't a bad idea though. I am certainly sure that when I get old and is still single, I will envy those happy couples with their children. So, I hope I can have my family by 35 years old. Maybe. Haha

The fact that it does not look as simple as what you said. Some people seemed to remain single because they really have hard time to find the right person to be their parents. I haven't married and I never meant to be a single forever, because the reason above. I am not getting the point why there still are some people remaining single because the reasons above. Every one has certain why they keep single for so long and we have to admire their choices.

For me married people needs to communicate each other, if there is something wrong about your relationship you need to fix it.Sacrament of Matrimony is Sacred you have respect the sanctuary. In your situation I respect it maybe there are a lot of unresolved problems/between individuals or it didn't work out.

Some of us needs to settle down after all we worked for,but for now we slows down our dreams to marry someone we love. I think your breadwinner? its a plus for you, sharing you blessing to your family is like also fulfilling to your part after all they had done to you. You always think of them..

We have to respect the decisions of other people in being single. Perhaps they are happier that way living in peace and the freedom to do whatever they want. They do not need to conform with a partner nor have the problems of a partner. Some people are happier that way.

Being single; unleash your abilities to the highest possible. I don't say single is forever after all your enjoyment in life you tend slowly figured out, feeling of somethings missing. In the world today we need to be practical when it comes to relationship, we don't know what will happen when you engage relationship . It's hard being married knowing you cant afford to sustain their basic needs of your child/children especially when entering preschool, you need to think wisely we work because of them, we try our best to save their future.Our economy is going down,groceries and product increasing.

Growing up single...living in peace singly...All these would seem blissful. But really isn't it quite boring? with none to share the happiness and sorrows of existence, with none to bother in matters of relationships, with none to seek help in times of distress...all these and many more maladies await the single man or woman in question
• Philippines
12 Jan 12
for me..I don't think so, you can always shares your sorrows,happiness to your friends, families. bother and sister or even our father they knows what is best for you..It times of depression I usually drew my strength to God.and it then it brightened by days, it feels like heaven when you express your problems to Jesus.

Iam a single at the moment, but sometimes I miss the feeling of having someone to cry on or tell everything. And having those love moments with the other. But you are having a point, being single is a heavenly experience, because you are free and can do anything you want to do.

Missing your love ones is the most difficult part. You are trying your best to do your job because its for them, you loved them even more.

I am single - means not married yet. But have a BF. He works so far from me so I am technically single. Before having a boyfriend I am so afraid also of falling in love because I don't wanna be cheated.

I also believe Human created for procreation. We are here for others. There is a saying " No man is an island. We created because we want others to love us and also we want to experience how to love other people. But in due time Being single is not forever, that's why make the most of it

many people are choosing this way of life now, marriage has become a gamble, a gamble that some people just do not want to take, freedom to make your choices in life without having to consider any other person can be a great thing, you can travel your journey of life exactly the way you want.

Hi friend... for now, i still enjoy my single life even sometimes i feel lonely and nobody share something fun with me. because i ever have a bad experience in a relationship. do ever heard that someone have been sue because she don't want to marry a materialistic guy? I'm the one.. Actually, I almost get married. i have already prepared for everything for my wedding. but then (maybe God help me) he let me see his bad attitude. I realize that what he really want is not me but MONEY. i know it from, he ask me to borrow 100 million (in rupiah) from a bank and my father. he want to collect 300 million to do a business. the first time he told me that he want to do a car accessories business (this one he ask me to borrow 50 million from my dad), maybe he surprise that my dad lend him that much money. so he think that if he want much more, my dad also can borrow him. then he said that he want to change it become a restaurant business and ask me to borrow 200 million. maybe he think that I'm stupid but I'm not Idiot. I let him choose one, married or business. he choose business. it's really hurt me. than i cancel the wedding and all the preparation. the craziest thing that i never imagine is, he sue me for the reason i broke the promise. the funniest thing is, i lose 2 of the court and now it's been in the third court. i face this case two years ago and till now this case is unresolved yet. that's my love story.. If u were me, don't u afraid to face this twice? do still can believe in love?
