There are a lot of us who are still single even on their late 30's (really, no offense...) I wonder, is it their choice to be single for life or just happened that no body bump their way yet? I wish to see your opinions regarding this... Thanks in advance! Happy MyLotting everyone!!!

I guess it is a choice for many, but, there are certain cases because of some unfortunate trauma in the relationship they had that made them single. But still I guess it was a choice that made them that way. I guess even those people who blame the past as to what they became they still can choose to try another but then they chose not too. So everything that happens in our life is a consequence of a choice we've made because of our experience to something.

For some being single is a choice, being single for life as they may not believe in love or simply they haven't found their ideal partner.

Being single can rather be a choice that you make, because I believe that there will always be a time when you'll be meeting someone. It's just the matter of choice that we make in our lives. As long as you enjoy your life, you need not to worry being single!

For me it is out of choice I have been single many years and even before I got involved with my last ex I had pretty much lived a single life I dated but no one really involved in my personal life like coming to my home my kids and such. After I split from my ex I just have not found anyone I care to date if I did I would date. Yet I am not willing to be with anyone just so I am not single. Not to mention some may not be happy along but for me I am really happy this way and if anything i think the more time I am single it becomes harder to start dating again for I am more happy now than I ever was in any relationship.

it is definitely a choice. not even those people who are in their 30's, i guess this applies to all age who had experiences and bad lucks so they decided to stay alone.

I was married for a very short time about....15-16 years ago. I'm currently living with my, what I call "insignificant" other :) He's about 7 years younger then me, and I am absolutely miserable. We've been together about 4 years now, and it's just run it's course and it's so over done. At this point in my life, I am looking forward to getting a full time job-which is very difficult at the moment, moving out, and just living alone with my girls. I currently have no desire to be with anyone, just want to be alone :) I of course know, someday I'll most likely meet someone, and if I do, that's fine. But for the moment....solitude seems soooo nice. I just turned 37, I'm female in case anyone wondered lol, and I have no problems being single nor staying single.

To be single or not, it's a personal choice, not others. If you're scared of not getting married after passing the age of 30, that's definitely wrong. I know a lot of people that tie a knot around that age. The thing is, the point of marrying someone is if you found the person you love. I am not going to do that just with any guy possible.
