humans are social animals! we all need somebody with us this journey of life. a friend,a relative, a boyfriend,girlfriend a spouse! but now the question is can we live alone? can we live alone i don't think so we all need somebody but can we live single without having any feelings for a person(love)?

I live alone but only because everything else has failed upto now. I really tried my best, and yes, made mistakes too. The Internet has turned out to be my only friend. After so many experiences in life, and at my age now, worries of not being able to have children....plus...the unlikelihood of finding a man who wants to, makes my ambitions less active. Depressing really. So living alone is a way of life now. I don't have any money to go out anywhere, so I have to meet people on the Internet. I won't lower my standards of whom I would date now though. I was always a 'one on one' type of person, more than a group. I tried since childhood and it never worked out. I just don't have things in my life, like other people do, so I am not able to contribute to what they talk about. Some people really like living alone. I worry about something happening to me, and then nobody will be there to help me. I guess that type of worrying happens more as we get older.

never worry about being alone. in reality you are not, God is with you. remember Him often and you will feel His company and all your fears will end.

Some people are introverts and some people are extroverts. If you are an introvert, maybe something in life has made you that way. People should do what is right for them.

yes we can live a single life. in fact when i live a single life i will be able to fully focus my love for humanity as my love do not become exclusive to anyone else. I have known a lot of people who are singles but very happy and a lot of people who are married/have a relationship with someone but are unhappy.

single people can be totally focused on their goals and i don't agree but if you say so they can be happy but when they look within themselves im sure they'll feel somewhat incomplete miss the love they see others getting!

that is not practical and if anyone manages to hate the world we still can't live alone happily!

Yes one can live alone, but would you be happy? Its not for everyone, so think it through and perhaps even try it out for a while before you decide. Of course I do not think any one would like to live a solitary life, without human contact for any length of time!

thats exactly my point. living and being happy are two different things and life without happiness is not worth living.

It is lovely havinf company through lifes journey if you meet the right person to do that, some people don't meet the right person ot maybe as in my case meet them too late, it is better to go through life as a single than to live with someone that does not let you be completely happy.

i still think all of us can find the right person! we can live single but can we be happy single and will that happiness be even comparable to the happiness we would get if we were with someone.

It depends on the situation... various factors influencing them... atmosphere around.... attitude.... and the relationship with people....... all these factors count... along with the occupation.....

I guess that is possible but it would be a far more lonelier as we go thru life.

I don't think that i can live single for whole life, I need somebody to talk to whenever i am facing difficulties in life and whenever i am happy. I wanted someone in my life to witness me throughout my life. I need somebody who can pick out my negative points, I need somebody for whom I am earning. I can't live single and most of us can't live. We need somebody to share hapinees, sorrow, love, relationship and the things that happen in a life.
