Why do you think some people remain single? Would you like to be single all your life? Is it better to be single or married? Why? What are the advantages of being single? Do you think that single people are happier?

i have never liked to be single, i refer to have a partner only just for share the thinking, the sacrifices of life, the happiness, the bad days, the good days, because in my honest opinion there is nothing worst than to live and die alone

I think they are just happy being single or they haven't found their other half yet.. :) Everybody is in different situations but those I could see generally, I would not lie to be single all my life because that way I would be lonely and I'm really that type who's got to have someone beside her.. I think I would be much happier if I'm married even if I know there might be problems but I know I will be having more people around me and I would really want to have a family someday.. I think if you're single then you could do so many things that you like, you have the freedom without worrying you might cross the line into hurting your partner.. Single people might be happy in their own ways depending what type of person they are..

I absolutely love being single and wouldn't have it any other way, I have had two disastrous relationships, where I have been trapped and they have been really painful and have caused me so much hurt and depression that I was glad to escape, I have fully accepted that there is no one out there for me and there never will be and I accept that, I have no problem living the rest of my life alone, in fact I prefer it that way. There are so many advantages of being single, I value my independence too much, I hate being nagged, I hate strings, I hate peoples habits and having to spend time doing stuff I don't want to do, sharing and being tied down. No the single life for me, wouldn't have it any other way!

I think it really depends on the person. I personally enjoyed my single life. I dated and went overseas and did things because had a little extra money and didn't have any responsiblities of a home and a spouse. I was single for 36 years. I am married now and this August will be 8 years of married life for me. I love it. grant it we haven't gone on oversea trips and things like that but a camping trip with the love of my life is just as exciting. I love married life and would do it all over again. To each his or her own. Some people never do marry and is because they prefer to be single and I say more power to both.

I hate to be single. I'm more than ready to get married to share my life with my boyfriend. I think we are at the right age. We will be 25 years old this year and we both have jobs. We've been together for almost seven years now but his mother is not willing to give up his son for marriage. I'm so frustrated! :(
