Single definitely. I don't even know for sure if I am in a relationship and there are still issues. v.v

If you break it down in to different parts then yes
ill use myself as an example:

Relationship

Heaven
"Oh my god, i'm dating this girl i've like for a while now, were doing tons of fun shit and making out and etc. etc"

Earth
-relationship filler-

Hell
"She's at my neck for staring at another girl and contsantly wanting more and more. I've lost contact with my friends and can't even do anything without her knowing."

Single

Heaven
"I'm free from crazy now I can drink and do dumbshit with my friends."

Earth
"Eh, fap fap fap, ill find a gf later"

Hell
Eh, i'd rather be single than put my thing in crazy. fap fap fap.

So basically this topic is not whether which one is better, more preferences than anything.

The problem with this question is that you can have good or bad relationships. A good relationship would be better than being single, while a bad relationship would be worse. Since it's not difficult to be happy as a single person, I'd guess that many people would choose single as the safe option if asked because on average, relationships are probably worse. However, given the choice between a really good relationship and the single life, the obvious choice is the relationship.

Single is safer, relationship has more potential.

Well, the one relationship I was in for two years made me realize that I'm plenty happy and prefer being by myself. The whole "relationships have more potential" thing is hilarious. More potential what exactly? Anything that you can gain by being in a relationship you can gain something else by remaining single. It's just a matter of preference. There's no right or wrong answer one isn't "better" than the other, one doesn't have more "potential" than the other and given the choice the "obvious" answer is not to be in a relationship. Some people such as myself just genuinely prefer being alone. It's entirely subjective there is no "better" option. Both have pros and cons, deal with it.

No, not at all. Unless you get orgasms proving the string theory, you might as well buckle up and familiarize yourself on grocery items.

I'm loving the single life, man! I get to color with crayons, put my hair in pigtails, and play with stuffed animals without someone looking at me all creepy! And laughing when I cry! And picking on me!

Yeaaaah! I always wind up with the creepy ones, so I'm cool with not having a tyrant looking over my shoulder.

In a way, both has its pros and cons. I'm single, and I think it's better to keep it that way.

In my opinion on the joys of being single:

Not having to deal with bullshit.
You don't have to try so hard to please a random stranger.
Never having to worry about who your lover is with/where your lover is.
None of that clingy bull.
Can't focus on the your lover's problems.
Safe and comfortable.
Freedom from being tied down.
No stress and other mess.
Being yourself.
Focusing on you and ONLY you.

That is it!

^^ sounds like you just got out of a relationship



My Op Single is good but being in a Good relationship is Hella Better especially when you start feeling the need to be loved not liked,and want more out of someone then just being physically attracted to them it's a 50/75 split to me your never going to be as happy alone then you are with someone else but if your in a committed relationship and it goes bad no can kick you while your down or hurt you like that other person because there close to you and even worse committed relationships can sometimes cause you not to even be friends with that person even hate them point is being single helps make the frame work of a good relationship by being friends first with someone getting to know them there tendencies what they like what they don't like what and how they feel about certain things and more importantly getting to know there feelings that go with those tendencies so that you can build trust which is the foundation of any good.great relationship so that relationship doesn't have any holes or crack's and you don't get used ..i could go on forever lol Hope this helps

Whatever floats your boat. Some might be better with or without someone in their life.

It depends on who you are, I think.

If you think that you'll find your "true love" and you truly believe in that, that's fine. If you don't, who cares?
Do I personally think there is true love? I haven't really thought about it, maybe because I don't care if there is or there isn't.


I'd rather be alone, I never liked being around people to begin with. I prefer to be single.

But for the whole Single vs. Relationship thing, I feel like there are pros and cons for both of them, though I see it happen more than often that people use relationships for their own gain, which I think is awful, but there's nothing I can to do about it.

I don't think it's even worth being in a relationship when someone is telling you what you can and can't do. Complaining...maybe lending a shoulder to cry on every now and then but constant complaining gets annoying. I think being in a relationship with someone you're compatible with isn't so bad. Being single is pretty lonely.

I suppose they both have their advantages, but I like being single and I'll stay that way.

I just look at relationships and find them hilarious 99 percent of the time.
