im a hopeless romantic, and i was never so sorry for being one, but sometimes love is not all there is to hold on to in a relationship. i recently had my holiday vacation in the province ( i am working in the City by the way), spending quality time with my family and loved ones. theres this instance that i attended a childhood friend wedding and i was so exhausted by people asking why i am not still married and should be one in 2 years time or else, what the f**k is that? honestly, i do want to but i think i haven't met yet the person i am destined to.. or im just making reason to myself but the real score is im better off being single.. i dont know. is there anyone out there who's in the same situation as i am??

Hi there, Weebo.:) Never mind those people asking you why aren't you married yet. They do not have something sensible to ask and they are just trying to pry on your personal life.. or they are just trying to have a chit chat with you but do not have a good topic to start with. Anyways, time will come that you will be needing someone in your life to love and to hold. The time hasn't come yet. Take your time. With the thought that you are better of as single, I think this song suits you. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wU6zMPGX-Hs Enjoy. :)

Don't worry about people teasing you if you are not yet married, it's quite common to do that here in our country but I guess it does not really mean much although it can do hurt some sensitivities. I was in the same situation as you years ago, you see I married when I was already 35 years old because I was concentrating on how to make my business stable that time and I was into politics. I was in and out of relationships but I never really found some one I would like to marry. Being Christian I thought that perhaps I had the "gift of celibacy" I was also a butt of jokes but I really did not mind especially when I was in political caucuses, I just thought that this people were in fact helping me find "Miss Right" I had no regrets because when I married, I was very stable, the only down side is I'm now in my 50's and my youngest child is still in kindergarten. Good luck and welcome to Mylot

hello weebo89, We have a same situation well i'm just 25 but my relatives is beginning to panic becoz i am still single there were times in many occasions when the topic is relationship they all keep on asking me "why you don't have a boyfriend yet?", "so when are you going to get married?", and lastly " are you a boyish one" ? though i am feeling bit annoyed with those questions but i still manage to make jokes on them regarding this issue. If i am destined to be single then be it but i wish i will not end up being single forever , in right time someone will come along the way. have a nice day!

I feel such feelings, majority of my neighbor or childhood friends who are as old as me or some are younger than me are in married life already. That question was asked to me several times already and I could not give them a straight answer, I just say I prefer being alone. I believe that being single doesn't mean that you did not find someone to love. Its not a status but a capability to live without depending on others. I have a girlfriend as of now, and I know she love me too, but its not time yet. I know someday ill be married too Im just unsure who that girl would be.

first thing i try to make any kind of ralation between the question title and the context but i couldn't by the way :) being hopeless romantic can find his dream hopeless rmantic person :) nobody can make you rush in such satuation or even they try you should close your ears

hi singup, i know, i kinda noticed just today that there is no correlation to my subject and contxt,, bear with me =)) coz its my first day at mylot. faith can move mountains is one of my fave motto's in life and i guess it is correlated in way by having faith in LOVE and by being hopeless romantic,, no mountains can blocken anyone in your search for Mr Right.. ope it made sense now.. god bless and have a happy new year!!!

I do not know if faith can move mountains but I know that your convictions can convict you. Maybe faith too can do the same.

There is so much that faith can do to enrich our lives. i do believe that faith can move mountains. sometimes it is that deep emotion that helps us to carry on when times are toughest.

People ask me that all the time - at family functions, especially. It's annoying, really. People should mind their own beeswax and concentrate on their own family 1st before judging others. I do believe that faith can move mountains, because I eventually found my soul mate. Before, I used to worry that there was something wrong with me while growing up. People were just people. Faces. And I was content on my own. I'd like to get married one day, but in my own terms. Not because I'm getting older. Not because I'm being pressured. But because I'm in love and can't live without my significant other. there's that saying - don't settle for the one you can live with.. wait for the one you can't live without.

I believe that. Though perhaps it sound too naive. But faith is all we need in life. Without faith, we will be like as foam on the wave. We can stand on the place we used to stand. That's why faith is very important. Faithful man is a sort of man we should manage to be. Happy day!

of course i do because that is what the Bible says... if we have even the smallest faith in God, then we can move the big mountain... anyway, about people keep on asking you to get married, i experience that before... what i did was, i just ignore those people... we are the one who is going to go through it... so if we are not ready yet, we shouldn't be bothered by them... take care and have a nice day...
