Anyone who wants to stay single for life has their own reasons.. It also has advantage and disadvantages. There are some who had bad experiences with their past partners while others are for personal beliefs. Advantage of being single, you are only responsible for oneself. Disadvantages, it could be a very lonely life with no one to turn to especially in old age. i don't want to be single my entire life though, since i want to have my own family.

I think that some people do not want to share their life with anyone. Selfish or self absorbed I think some are very into what they want in life and are not able to share it with anyone else. And they don't find it lonely at all. Why? Because they are so self involved. Stuck in their ways the longer they stay single the more they are unable to share.

i have never heard of that reason before, but that is quite possible.. A friend of mine said she doesn't want to be married at all, because she doesn't want to get hurt or something..

I do not believe that someone is capable of staying single forever. Who does that in this world we live in today? However, being single gives you freedom to do whatever you wanna do. You can take your time to pick the right guy.

I know some people who have stayed single until now.. i don't think they plan on marrying at all. they are just contented with their family and friends, i guess.

I think that it is temporary until they find the right person. Love hits you when you least expect it to.

Living a single life for some years is going to be OK but I don't think that being single for your whole life is an attractive idea. But still a lot of people might choose this option due to their own reasons. Personally I won't be able to live a single life. For me it is going to be harder than anything else and I pray to God that he never brought such situation to my life when I have to be away from my family and live alone.

I think i will be fine being single for a few years, but there will come a time when i want a family too..That is the thing i want the most, having a family of my own.. But fr now, i would enjoy being single and free.

I am sure women do too but I know a lot of guys who think that way. They either were hurt from a past relationship or decide they want to be little players for the rest of their lives. It irritates me when I meet a nice guy and he's against relationships because someone hurt him years ago. Its like a never ending cycle....mean man treats women badly=women becomes mean and treats next man badly=man becomes mean etc

Hat is just sad.. Just became of a bad break up people should never lose hope on love.. not every woman is the same.. if a person keeps his or her heart closed, they may never find their soulmate.

Yeah, this kind of life style is not very suited for many people.. Which is why there are only few nuns and priests.. they are even recruiting in my placed sometimes. But even in those institutions, they form a family..

Well, some people stay single because of bad experiences.. i hope you don't close your heart forever.. Do you have any kids? If you do have, maybe they can be enough to keep you happy and complete for the rest of your life.

I have been single for all my life and am getting tired of it. I want to spend at least the latter half with someone special if not the beginning and middle parts of it for long. I mean as in a stable relationship such as a marriage that works and not something that is half hazardly a joke. Being alone in my old age and possibly sooner is nothing I want to even think of anymore, I'm not getting any younger at 50 yr old next year.

I have been single all my life too.. but i am still quite young and i am not in a hurry. Why don't you just go out and find love.. if it does not find you.. you have to look for opportunities. it is never too late..

I think being single is either a matter of choice or circumstances. I have aunts and an uncle who are single and they fall under both. But if there's one perception about being single that I don't agree on, is that singles are not as happy as married ones. My aunts and uncle are pretty happy and content. They may not have kids but they get their kid-fix through us, and we never make them feel alone. We give them the love and respect that we give to our own parents. Personally, I prefer to have a family of my own. And I just got married, but it's not as difficult, nor as easy, as I thought it was.

I have some aunts and uncles who remain single too.. I think they are happy too, since they have their nieces and nephews.. but it is still different if you have your own family. Good luck on your marriage..you will have some ups and downs, but if you have children, i think it will be worth it.

I don't think that all that many people would choose to stay single through their whole life, and one of the reasons for this would be because a lot of things are much better if you're able to do them as part of a couple, and you wouldn't be able to do this if you were single. Just because you're single doesn't always mean that you're not able to have children, because I know of a lot of people who are single parents now and the child doesn't have anything to do with its Father. So I don't think that every single person would automatically not be able to have any children.

Yes, i agree. there are single parents out there.. i really hate people who leave by the way, making babies and just ignoring their responsibility.. There are many cases like that here..

I never think of being single in my life as I am afraid of being at home alone, I can't sleep when I am alone at home, so it decides that I can never be single my whole life. I have my family, my husband and my daughter, we had a good time and we are a happy family. I hope everyone can have a happy family like me.

Oh yes, that is one of the reasons i do not wish to be single all my life too.. I hate being alone.. That is actually one of my greatest fears, alone, with no one to take care of me.. Everyone deserves to be happy, no matter what his/her choice in life may be.
