i would definitely want to grow old with someone.. i dont want to spend the last few years of my life here on earth alone. if ever my partner pass away first,,i would find another one.. i dont want to be alone on that period of my life,cause i think i will lose my sanity if i were to face the world all by myself..

Of course I do! I think everyone does. It's just that some would want to be single forever because of their pasts relationships or rejection.

I want someone to grow old with and I have found that person, I do not even want to think about being without him in my life. I guess if the time came and I was alone a long time I might want to be with someone else but I can not even imagine that right now..

Well at this time in my life I am growing old with my husband, I certainly do not want to be alone either but due to my husband being a lot older than me if he goes before me I shall have to remember the happier times that we had together. I do not think that I would find someone to take his place as they could never replace the love I have for him, it is very hard though to be alone.

I couldn't imagine growing old alone so that's one of the reasons why i got married and started to have my own family. It would be a dull & almost empty life if i would be living alone all my days. I feel that it makes life more meaningful now that im sharing it with my wife and son. No man is an island, holds true... i guess.

Life can be lonely if nobody shares, so I definitely want to grow old with someone. I haven't lost faith yet of finding that person to grown old yet. I just pray that he will one day just come and enter into our lives.

Totally agree with you - I would want to grow old with someone as opposed to growing old alone and single! Don't think I could handle that!

I would want to grow old with someone hopefully my husband. I don't think that I could find somebody like him again. he is just great and we are made for each other.

ofcourse with someone...and hopefully with a house filled with people..my country is one which appreciates huge joint families...so i hope i spend my whole life and grow old and die in a house with a bunch of people my age...my kids and their kids...loads of kids screaming and laughing playing all the time..

Yeah, I also want to grow old with someone, hopefully with my wife. I am still fairly young at 32, but already I am in the 'comfort zone' after being married for nearly 9 years. You always have a great friend nearby, someone to share every little thing with. Even when the rest of my family has gone away without me and I come home to an empty house it just doesn't feel right.

I want to grow old with someone and share my life with that person. The idea of dying alone scares me very much.

I think everyone would someone but for me it would have to be a special someone, there is a difference, I had a special someone and he passed away now for me it wouldn't be so easy to be that lucky again...

I think that someone that I planned to grow old with is MAKING me old. Some days I feel like I would rather be single, but not if it meant losing my kids. And I would hate to have to try and raise them alone since I have a chronic illness and am unable to work. I'd be living in my van! I'll grow old with that special someone if he'll grow up!

I would enjoy the company of a special mate as I grow old. Although, I have been single for the past four years. I had to use some time to improve myself and my life. Besides, I'd rather be single than be with a jerk.

that's why i thought about, too before when i got heartbroken 13 times by "jerks". i'd rather grow old alone than be with with someone who will just be a pain in my life everyday. gladly, i found someone i will marry soon and who i love the most.

The hard part of growing old with someone is that one of you is going to die first, leaving the other hopeless and helpless.

living all alone in this cunning world is very much tough.i cannot imagine living alone at this point of time when i am so young,then how can i imagine in my oldage.i dont know who among both of us will part this owrld first but i just hope that we both leave the world at the same time.i really cannot live without my partner.children also cannot give support in oldage since they would be busy in their life.

I also want to be with someone to grow old with. I want someone to share my life with and of course have kids. For me, that would be nice. If ever my partner will die I think it depends on the situation if I will find another one. If I am in love again then why not try.

None could live alone. We, the human beings called social animals. We need to share our worries and happiness with each other. We are here because of eve. We are here in result of being couple with each other. I agree with you, we seek friends, we seek partners and we want to grow old with some one. This all is natural, this all is our need.
