I am still single now. As I am 24 years old, my parents and my friends are worried about me and want to find a partner for me. But I don't think so and I enjoy the single life now. It is really wonderful. Maybe God has arranged everything for us, so why should we hurry up? Just enjoy the life no matter what it is like! I have saw some words comforting single persons from a book. I think it is right and I write it here: 'Love is like a butterfly. The more you chase it, the more it eludes you. But if you just let it fly,it will come to you when you lease except it.Love can make you happy but often it huits, but love's only special when you give it to someone who is relly worth it. So take your time and choose the best!' Do you agree? Just take your time! God has prapared the best for you!

The human race has been conditioned over centuries that marriage is a must. But today women are more independent, have more say, and not to be married should not be considered a failure, I believe the divorce rate is simply because people just don't wait long enough for the right person, it is a big ask to expect two people make a success union if they are not truly suited which happens in too many cases, men have always been brought up to be the leadrers and the wife follows, women today want much more out of marriage today and are just not willing to give up as much as they have been expected to do in the past, being single can be wonderful, it can have its down times but so does a married life...enjoy your single life and let the right person walk into your life and be happy in love....

In fact 24 years old is still very young. It is not so hurry to find a partner yet. I am already married and have a child. By the way, didn't you mention you would go to see your parents with your boyfriend in one of your discussions?

Hi! I am happily married but still i would like to respond to your discussion.I am glad you are enjoying your singledom.I liked the quote from the book you read.Marriage is the single most perplexing institution in the world.Its been there for centuries,the world has'nt come up with a better alternative,it has survived so there must be something in it to recommend it.Take your time when you find the right partner and are ready for the commitment you will probably settle down.Wishing you good luck.

Yes, I agree with that quote. I'm 20 and I'm getting married in may and people are telling me I'm too young to make that choice and that I'm making a huge mistake and that I should stay single for another 5-8 years before I should want to get married. I don't think it's right for anyone to try to control anyone else's love life. You want to stay single for now, so what? That's your life, your choice. I want to get married now, so what? It's my life and I'm very happy with the decision.

I'm single now, I recently ended my relationship to my ex. Though it cost me pain for that time-being, I am glad that I can now enjoy again freedom. I am not happy being single, it's just that I still want to enjoy things without someone shadowing over me. I still believe that love will come my way, since I don't know of anyone wanting to live a life being alone with noone to share love with..

i am still single. I like this status. It was taken for granted that everyone should be married. But I think nowadys both men and women can live life good if single. Marriage also have so many headaches and problems. Its true that love very often hurts you. May be the society would take a long time to accept it.

Hello chym1101, I am 27 will be 28 in two weeks and I am still single. I agree that if you do not seek out love it will fnd you when you least expect it. But still I doesn't help the fact that I get realyy lonely sometimes. I cannot wait untill love does find me again.

I'm 36 and still single. With my work schedule, it's difficult to get out and try to meet people. Over the past two years, I've made some wonderful friends while taking vacations, but I haven't met anyone interested in a serious relationship. That's okay, though. Having fun and relaxing away from work is more important for me than searching for a lifetime companion.

marriage - i will only get married if i'm absolutely sure
You're still young. I'm 31 and still single. For me it doesn't matter if I get married or not. I can be happy either way. All I know is if ever I marry, it will be a woman that I love, and I sure will devote myself to making the marriage work. Otherwise there's no point in getting married.

I am single too and I enjoy being single. Although most of my friends are married, I am not pressured. In fact, I didn't really bother to widen my social cycle in order to find a soul mate because that is not what I want to do at this moment in time.

yes,I am single now. We end up our love-relationship two month ago.As he said he could not give me anything,so he want to set me free.Then he vanished .I tried to phone him but in vain. It is very tough for a long time.But now I refresh myself So I am just waiting for my real Mr.Right. But I do not know when I can come across the Mr.Right.May be in a short time .May be never.

I'm still single. And if I was to compare my current life to before the present when I was dating harpy after harpy after harpy and dealing with serpent after serpent, I'd say I'm much happier now because I'm no longer dealing with the nonsense from before. Never again.
