It has been clear to me that almost everybody have that priority to be with someone or to have someone... Especially during high school when it was like a big deal if you have a boyfriend or a girlfriend... Would it matter to you if you have a bf or gf? Is it a concern of yours? Or you basically enjoy life being single... Honestly... As for me, I think I would feel happier and feel much more complete if I had someone to share life with, it doesn't mean that I am desperately looking for a bf but rather it is always at the back of my mind that life would be much enjoyable and happy if I am with somebody special.. but not having one does not mean I am miserable just as well... it's like between GOOD and BETTER..

you've got a very positive outlook in life. i am over forty and not been married and i have never had a serious girlfriend for the past 8 years, though been going out on dates, but i am satisfied, contented and happy even without a partner. it is a mind set to me, if i can't be happy by myself then how could i be happy with someone? some people are very dependent and they have this need to be with someone to help them up because hey are not so sure about themselves. so, they need a help.

Yeah I know a girl from high school she was like very you know like we would always have seen her like she needs a boyfriend, one after the other, it seems like she couldn't get around without a guy by her side.. I don't know why maybe because she's got family issues or something and she finds comfort in knowing that there's somebody who'll take care of her...

Yes it is not that super big of a deal though... But then of course it is still part of my priorities for I would want to have a family of my own in the future.. But as far as getting depressed just because of that... nahhh!!

I do not think having a bf/gf is a big issue. It's just normal. But during school it was a different thing. Everybody including me in my school used to think that if we have a bf/gf then it is a really big issue. We used to tease couples and even used to tease boys and girls who talked or hung out with each other. But now after school life I think that it is normal and having the girl of my dreams as my girlfriend were the best days of my life.

I've always subscribed to single-blessedness. There's a great amount of freedom in your life where you can do almost anything you want without any restrictions imposed by being in a relationship. However, there really is something to be said with being in a relationship. You can do the things you want and share them with the one you love. The feeling of loving and being loved for being each other is one of the greatest feelings in the world, I think. Relationship restrictions? They mean nothing to two people in love who always think of each other's welfare. I agree; being in a relationship is similar to the differences between life being good, and life being better: life is definitely better. :)

it's nice to find someone that you can share your life with and be happy..............but if that person hasn't arrived in your life..then it is good to jst enjoy your freedom and building up your life..having other friend and family is rewarding as is having a life partner.
