I am 40 years old, and currently single. I wouldn't trade it for the world to be honest. I've had my fun with relationships, and now i'm off to better pastures. Here are some pros and cons for you:


PRO: You can do whatever you want.

CON: hmmmm

PRO: you can go wherever you want.

CON: uhmm ...

PRO: Nobody yells at you, or nags you.

Con: ..damn, there just aren't any cons.

Oh, yeah, no physical relations ..... but let's face it...you can always buy that.

Edit: putting this edit here to let people know that this was a joke post!
Relationships come and go, love em when you got em, and love it when you don't!

Okay, honestly, there's nothing but threads like this one. Get over your lonely hearts & get outside for goodness sake, or deal with it!

It depends on where you are in your life. If you are not ready to care about another person and put theirs needs before your own enjoy staying single. If you want to share your life (and eventually theirs) then a relationship is better.

There is nothing more sad to me than people who enter in to relationships with someone they aren't attracted to and have nothing in common with, simply because that person is willing to be in a relationship. What's more annoying is when these same people look at you with pity as if being single automatically means you are sad and lonely. If you need an other person to validate your existence, then I think you should seek counseling, not a relationship.

Now don't get me wrong, there are some people out there who find their perfect match. Someone as beautiful on the inside as they are on the outside. Someone who shares all their likes and dislikes. I've settled for pretty girls with the personality of a stump. And I've settled for cool girls who look like a stump. I'm done settling. I now I have a checklist of mandatory qualifications. If they are not all met, I'm not interested. And if by some miracle of God I do come across such a woman, getting her to like me will be the hard part. So I've made peace with the fact that I will never enter in to a serious relationship for the rest of my life. Am I sad? Do I cry myself to sleep at night? Please. Am I bitter? Maybe a little.....

I prefer being single. I find people annoying. I'm just a couple of years away from buying many cats, calling one Mr. Mittens, and making hearty winter soups for myself.

If you can find the right person being in a relationship is always better. Don't be a fool though, it's not worth being in a relationship with the wrong person. I think it's better to be single than to date someone because you're afraid of being lonely. Don't be afraid to keep going on dates and meeting people, you'll never know when the person for you will appear. Sounds cheesy I know, but after a number of relationships that did not quite work out, I can confidently say that against all my expectations I have found a person who accepts me and understands me and fits well with me in every way. Someone who I would happily spend the rest of my life with. Don't give up, sure, playing around while you're single can be fun, but in the end, having someone you love and who loves you all the same to come home to is the best feeling.

It would be best to taste it first than not tasting it at all.

Both have their perks but this sort of thread is solely for the purpose of trying to convince yourself you're happy being single.

I have been single for years now and I will tell you this. It sucks. Yeah you have the freedom to do whatever you want but you don't have the companionship or connections to a person you get in a relationship. (Do I believe there is true love in reality. No. But I do believe people can love one another. Will it last well that's another question.) And its even worse when you don't even know how to get a relationship going.

hmmmm...well ive been single my whole life...been asked out heaps no doubt....but my parents are strict and still won't let me date even though i'm at uni....

from what i've seen relationships that balance are awesome and each partner looks out for each other....

then there are relationships where one is pulled around by the other....ughh....so cringe worthy....

This is probably one of the most subjective things in the world, people just fit better into one of several categories. Their preference is far more important and stronger about this than anything else though, be it favorite food, color, etc.

Some people absolutely need relationships, or they are miserable. Some people I know who constantly seek relationships because they have been taught to think they need one are constantly miserable.

I personally have absolutely 0 interest in any sort of romantic or physical relationship, which is really convenient. There is no right or wrong, as it will be different for everyone. (Margin of error for that sentence being that it is very easy to categorize people as 'needing or wanting relationships' etc. but if you really look at exactly what people are looking for, wanting, or expecting, there is an insane amount of variation.)
