Being single is better. People are liars. When you are single you don't have to deal with liars.

depends on what your relationship is like if its one were you both trust each other and are alwways happy to see them but dont have to spend everyday with them id say good relationship.

being single is fine nothing wrong with it

as for "true" love were talking about catching a grenade for somebody risking your life i think alot of people would freeze up if they was about to see their loved one get hurt (potentially die if it happens)

i would guess this is based of anime love. but no love can be like love in anime. possible ones like 5cm per second are the most realistic

It's hard to find true love in a modern society. Survival is our prime instinct. Our very being (emotions, goals, advancement) branches off of this instinct. Love is a major part of survival. You have to want to survive together and need each other for there to be love. And in a modern cutting edge society we don't need to do much to survive and thrive. That's why we face population decline without immigration and incentive.


During and after every war there's a baby boom because your survival instincts are going into overdrive. We are basic animals, we survive. Poor countries have very high birth rates because of constant threat of death. And couples stay married because they NEED each other. Not want but NEED each other to survive. That is love.

I am fine with being single. Hell with all the stuff I went through in my childhood up to present. I probably don't deserve it. Those expereinces also made me cast away interest in finding a relationship

I don't really believe there is someone for me. I do take interest in a few people I know.But unless they escalate our relationship. Then I wouldn't press for it. Put simply. I wouldn't mind a relationship. I see no need for one. And have kinda cast away the feeling to search for "love" long ago.I have alot of focuses and goals now.

Even though some may sympathize and say that my childhood upbringing and parents were unjust and unfair.I still need to make up for it. By becoming the best I can be at the best thing I can do. I wouldn't want to bog someone down. I am a person who would rather remedy his problems alone.. And I can't speak for anyone who may take interest in me. But I always think of anyone involved with me before I get them involved in my life.

For right now. Friends are all I need.And I'm satisfied with that.

being single is fine and all you can do what ever you want but to have some one to share your experiences with now that would be amazing.

I'm currently in a relationship, and ever since she joined a sorority, she doesn't have time for us anymore.
It gets lonely, and this is one of those moments where being single feels better.

From personal experience, it is better to be alone. Love just gets in the way of your life and what is important to you. No matter how hard you try, you can't make things work out. Sure, there is that chance things will, but it is out of your controll. Love is one of the worst weaknesses in existance.

I have dated crappy guys and good guys Then I just stopped dating all together because I hated it. I'm not in high school, by the way. I hated not knowing fully who the person was or feeling like I could only show them a little bit of me at a time. Even in high school it was still the same. So, I stayed single for three years until I met my recent boyfriend. I knew instantly that I liked him and that I thought he was attractive. Which I thought was unusual of me. We were friends for a year and a half and I could be myself around him because there wasn't any pressure and then he asked me out. My response was, "YES!".

Don't get me wrong I do like being single but having some who is special in your life to share everything you like, hate, love is Good. We watch anime together. Sure I can do that with a friend or whatever but it's just different.

Also, having been anime fan for so long. I used to have this unrealistic expectation of guys.

It's really hard to determine which is better - the answer to that question depends on who you are with in a relationship

Well..Here's my take on this.
Yeah, the "grass is greener" and all...
but after 30 years of being single and with no prospects in all likelihood of ever changing the status,
Staying single sucks.
Social anxiety primary, night shift for last 20 years further prohibiting any real social functions,
and the fact that what friends I do have are already married etc so not much thought is given
toward my way, are my excuses.
Hence, I watch anime to vicariously live thru the shows. It's lame and depressing, I know.

So to me, both single and relationshipping has its good parts and bad.
But in my view staying single too long is no good for the emotional side.

Then I'll throw this other thought out as an "oldster" here...
Some spiritual messages talk about how "when you're gone" all that's left are the memories
with the ones still alive who you've shared life's eperiences with (good or bad).
If you've never created these life experiences, there's not much left to celebrate at the end.
