I hate being in relationships, too much work. Also, no matter how you look at it, you WILL get hurt eventually, it's unavoidable.
So I avoid relationships altogether.

No one can answer this for anyone else. I am fine either way. I do really enjoy having someone to share experiences with, though.

If you aren't happy with your life when you're single, you aren't ready to be in a relationship. You can't love someone else if you don't first love yourself.

You will never find someone who can "complete" you. You'll outgrow it or they will, but either way it won't work out.

Shel Silverstein's "The Missing Piece" says it well.

I like being in a relationship than being single. I was talking with a couple of co-workers today at work about this topic. The guys picked being single so they could mess around with anyone they wanted and not be on a 'leash' and whatnot. I suppose it's different with genders, views, and all that stuff.

Being in a relationship is better for mind,body and spirit if it is with the right person.
I would rather be single than in relation with the wrong person.
Does true love exist? Most certainly-but could you recognize it,own it,and nurture it?It's a feeling felt and a chance taken and when you win it's the greatest thing that will ever happen to you.But if you ever lose it-you may lose yourself.You can't win if you don't gamble.

When you're with someone you want to be single and when you're without you want to be taken.
It's up to the person really, as of right now I've been single for about a year and I'm starting to kind of miss having a boyfriend that can both be your best friend and love interest. But then there's always those stupid love games that you have to go through in order to find the right person =_=

In my opinion relationships are worthless. Most people try to play games instead of just being upfront with the other person or they have little tests they play on the other person to see if they are trustworthy not even realizing that they are the ones being untrustworthy and deceitful. They can be nice momentarily when the rare instance happens that those things aren't done but something always happens to make everything go to hell and then everyone just ends up hurt. It's better not to bother with them at all. Too many worthless people to sift through trying to find that one good one that might not even be there.

I think it depends on the person. Some people are independent and don't need a lover to tell them that they're beautiful, etc. However, there are many people who prefer to feel loved. Some people give up on love and think that it's stupid because it hasn't worked for them, so I think the best thing to do is to try and see if it works out. If it doesn't, we all have the rest of our lives ahead and anybody worth loving will eventually be loved, relationship or not good luck to you!!

To be honest ~!~! is there such thing as true love in reality??? you rather be single and do whatever you want or in a relationship when your boyfriend or girlfriend telling you not to do this or that, or they'll complain this and that?


Being in a relationship for the sake of being in a relationship is just .. stupid IMO.

Being alone is no crime if you haven't found someone worth comprising yourself with in order to make a common life. It's too much of a hardship for it to be worth it unless it's 'the real thing'. What makes it 'the real thing'? that's up to you. but I've seen too much wreckage to feel left out at being single.

conversely I hear all about my best friends girlfriend troubles. you'd think he hates it. but he's just venting. ask him straight up and troubles and all he wouldn't trade it for being alone.

Make of that what you will.

There are both pros & cons to being single and being in a relationship. I've noticed that most people prefer to be in a relationship because they don't want to be alone or lonely or what ever.
For me personally, being single is great and being in a relationship is great also. There are some times when being single is more beneficial to me and some situations when being in a relationship seems beneficial.
Being single is great because you can focus more on yourself and the things you want out of life with minimal drama (relationship drama anyway) and not feeling "tied down" because of your relationship.
Then being in a relationship on the other hand, you don't have that lonely feeling majority of the times and you have a lot more to focus on than just yourself. Things can get hectic because of the occasional drama/arguments that come with relationships.
Meh, I'm one of those people who doesn't really care if I'm single or in a relationship because I'm content either way.

I think a lot of people in this modern age don't see a relationship as it is meant to be, but then you can ask the question "What is a relationship supposed to be?" I've often thought that myself and pondered through what love actually means and is it actually important to find a good relationship eventually?

I think these things are all up to the person at hand, even so a lot of people seem to handle relationships incorrectly and don't seem to know what they're doing. I don't know about everyone else here but I always see people just being in a so called "relationship" for sex and/or bragging rights which is shameful to say the least.

Most relationships that I've seen within my group of friends usually end up in tears and cause more trouble than they're worth. Honestly though it's up to you and no one else to decide what you want to do with life.

Really depends on where you are in life. There's perks to being in a relationship and being single, so it isn't like one's necessarily better.

I don't really worry too much about it. For me, I'm way too busy to put the effort into finding a mate--let alone maintaining a relationship, I don't really dwell on it too much. If stuff happens, stuff happens. If not, it doesn't. It doesn't really bother me.

Solution: Get a girlfriend that loves you for who you are and doesn't expect you to change to fit her needs.

^ I agree it is up to us to decide our future, but we also can't wait on it. Making plans that you might do eventually just isn't good enough and probably will never happen.

Honestly ten months ago when I wrote on this subject, I had little going for me. I had recently been hurt and was having a very hard time finding my path in life. Once i figured out that no one was going to come and 'save' me, I started to take chances and try anything different that would have made me uncomfortable. It changed my life around. Even though I'm still single, I'm taking care of myself and setting up my future. I'm not waiting around for a girl that I feel the need to 'fix' which has been my downfall. I'm a sucker for them, but instead i'm working on being the best person I can be so when I do find the right person, I'll be ready.

Also everyday is a gift, so why not enjoy it the best you can?
