Are you in a relationship right now?Have you ever thought about what if you were still single right now, what do you thing you life would be? Don't think that you break up with your partner, think of it that you were just single till this time. For me I think I would have extra money every payday, but I would be always alone. I will be alone when going thru events and even party with my friends. What do you think?

Hi friend, i am married and living with my wife and kids, really i am missing my bachelor life, surely every one will enjoy a lot with their single life, as we don't have more responsibilities and restrictions and no one can control as, we can enjoy our life a lot being a single person

I am in a relationship right now and sometimes I wish to be single.Being single you do not have to always ask permission when you will go out with your friends and no one will always get angry to you.But now,even if I really wanted to be single and be free.I really cannot find any other reason to break up in our relationship. My boyfriend is really good to me even if sometimes there are incompatibilities.Maybe,I really do not like to be a loner again even if I am better off alone.

I have thought about this a lot recently, and I'll admit I do sometimes miss being single. If I wasn't in a relationship I'd probably have more time to focus on my creative interests like writing and my photography shoots. But you have to give up some of your time for love.

I think being a single is not bad enough. Because for me it is better to be single than having a partner that is nagger and never understand who you are. Better to be single than having a partner because you have money. You can't avoid to be lonely but is not always you will be a single. Just wait the right person in your life. A person that really love you the most...

I am lucky to say I still do have extra money and go out with friends without a guy telling me what not to do and what to do..lol. I am in a long distance relationship that is, and it has its advantages and disadvantages. Anyway, I have thought of being single a lot of times before, especially when we do have a misunderstanding with my bf. I think being single means being free, being stress-free from all the sadness, hurt and pain a relationship sometimes gives. But then again, being single sometimes makes you feel alone.

I am single and love my life just the way it is. I do not have responsibility for anyone as my daughter is married and lives in New Jersey, my son lives here in South Africa, and I can write all day and do what I want. I would not marry again; I love that I do not have to cater to anyone's needs anymore. This does not mean that I have become uncaring, just that I no longer have to apologize for things and do what others want me to do. I can go out with my friends, I can have spiritual gatherings without having to check with anyone that is with me. I can have the whole bed to myself. I do not have to press anyone's shirts, and I am free from stress and can support myself.

If am single I'll work hard and save money. Spend time with my Mom and Brother. Learn something new by enrolling to a cooking class or photography class. Travel once in a while. I'll do that if I were still single but I'm not. I love my family so no regrets!

Like so many of the responses I have read here, I too am a loner. I think if I were single I would have more free time to do my things and not our or their things. I also wonder who would be there to "help" me out in a moment's notice, or who would I share my day with. There are times I very much wish I was single and there are times I am very glad I am not,

I would be a loner if i was single. I would always be depressed because wherever you go you see couples around and you would wish you had someone to share the moments with. Then going to family get togethers everyone would have their significant other with them and you would be the only one that didn't have a date. But i am happy with the man in my life now and I don't have to go thru this anymore and he comes to all my family gatherings with me and we have a great time together. I don't ever wish to be single again, I know it could happen but I hope it doesn't for a very long time.

Hi, I am single now.. Honestly, it feels kind of lonely and sad. Moreover, when I see people at my age getting married but not me. However, I got through this. I don't want to let the loneliness to ruin me so I use all my power and strength to focus on my dream and make it happen. Being single also means I have more time to love and focus on myself.

You are right that all the thing is like bad without your partner.And all the people see you very badly.In one place is right or not.Because when you single you are in-going good or not.

I have thought about it from time to time and it makes me sad to think about only because then I wouldn't be happily married or have my little girl. But there are times I miss going out with friends and having that freedom with no responsibility!

I've always had more time alone since I'm often single and I only had fewer relationships to date. I enjoyed my solitude although there were times I would feel alone especially that time when I lived on my own for close to 6 years. I only went out with friends who were also single.

I do not want to be a loner because there is no one caring about your condition.I know that there are people who cares because you have other relatives and siblings who could fix what you wanted,yet if it is your own family a wife and children are your most treasured belongings,not your siblings or other relatives.They should be the symbol of your success and failures in life.All people knows how to win a friend, but does this friend you found really makes you special as if you were his brother? It is very seldom you could meet such person with that abilities and characteristics, who could make you at ease,gives you sound advices,watch you have eaten or your house was already cleaned out of dirt,your clothes are washed and clean.I could take a miracle you could find such a friend.Many could become a friend with limitations because they are just friends for entertainment,for going out,or they maybe a friend because they wanted something from you or you needed their skills.So be careful in choosing a real friend.

I am also a loner and I don't socialize much. I do not wish to be single now because I am very happy in life whatever I have. I can't even think of what i would do if I were single at this moment. ohhh. well I might be just the way I am and not more. Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful day ahead.

Most probably I would be just like you, too. It will be a struggle to be happy at times because there would be no special person to share the memorable events with and other important things in life.

I think I'd be a bit of a loner. I was until I met my partner. I'm not good at going out and socializing with people, so I probably would have continued to be alone and perhaps focus more on university and my career. I know that however long I would have stayed single, I still would have met my partner because I believe we were meant to be.
