I'm in my late twenties and still single.Single by choice.I don't want to look for love because I know love will come unexpectedly. This is life, if you are destined to be single forever..so be it as long as you are happy and full of love.

I'm glad that you are enjoying your single life. There are many benefits to being single and I'm glad that you realize it. So many people don't realize the preciousness of being single until it is too late. Single people can enjoy so many things and have a happy life. So many people feel that they can't be happy unless they are in the relationship and that is the sad thing.

@chelogirl yeah don't rush things. You have plenty of time to start a family. As once you start you can't go back and change things. So use the free time you have now to do what you would like to. Pursue the goals that you have for yourself.

Same here. A lot of my age mates have their own families already but for me I am not yet serious of having my own at the moment. I want to enjoy my life as a single. When I am bored of being single and I really want to settle down that is the time I will do all my best and exert a lot of effort to find a partner.

I am not entirely sure that being single (whether by choice or otherwise) should be celebrated as a great 'feat' or sighted as an expression of concern, in this world. Given that humans existing in a society are social beings: (1)in need of, and desirous of (1) companionship, (2)fellowship, (3)love and attention, (4)encouragement, guideance and advise, (5)the quest for family life and building of assets, among other things. Speaking of being single -while on of the forms of human existence- in my opinion, one need to work towards the more accepted forms of socially upgraded and beneficial positions. Studies have shown that persons who are single, have a more challenging time surviving in this complex complicated world than persons who are married, or couples living together (even in a common law arrangement); especially from a medical, security and financial perspective. The 'conditional' challenge gets worse for single persons who are women! Yikes, while you're prepared for love whenever it comes along, Chelogirl, hope that you are striving to at least, work at ensuring the you have a companion to lean on, until the suitable person appears.

Not everyone was meant to have a partner. It's all up to you and what you desire to do with your life. There is absolutely nothing wrong with choosing to remain single and as you say, you a partner may come along unexpectedly. You never know what life has in store for you, who you're gonna meet or what experiences may come your way.
