I've been single for a few months now, and I still miss being in a relationship yes, but I feel like it's better (for me). You can focus on your studies, you have time to go out and be with friends without worrying about your lover all the time. You also don't need to constantly feel pressure on yourself to hold back when it comes to talking to others.

Being in a relationship made me feel more "secured" in a way. You have someone to go home to, or talk to until you go to sleep. You have that feeling of being loved, yes.

But it depends on the person and situation, hun.

Single because you will never find someone who completely understand you or give a shit about you.

Both sides have their advantages.
To summarize, I like being single better than being in a relationship because it's less stressful and less expenses during holidays/special occasions.

that said, I also love it when I am special to someone.

Being is a relationship where both parties truly understand one another will always be superior to remaining single!

...I wonder if that's even possible. Although, even less than ideal relationships are nice too. As much as I hate to admit it, humans are creatures that prefer contact with other humans. Slowly being crushed by loneliness is no way to live. Those who prefer to be alone probably find it difficult or impossible to imagine someone being able to understand them, and so they reject the idea of a relationship.

I'm sure it's possible to actually prefer never getting into a relationship, though I suspect this is a rare occurrence among human beings.

I'll blame my pessimism on my young age and subsequent lacking range of experience, but from as far as I can tell, relationships are pointless. For me, anyhow. Obviously, you have to be at a certain point in your life for it to be beneficial... Some ambiguous sweet spot of desire and maturity, I suppose.

How is this a debate. Relationship means you get laid where you want, whenever you want. Well, unless it's a bad one. In that case get out of it.

Single. Being tied down sucks ass, even if you get laid on the regular.

In a real relationship (they do exist, I was in one for three years), the people involved don't have to tell their partner to do/not do anything. Trust is what makes a relationship work, a lack of it devolves into limitations and ridiculous compromise.

Also being single is better. You'll only ever be let down by friends and acquaintances when you're single which is much better than being let down by a loved one.

I'm single (always have been) and I've been having conflicting feelings about liking being single or not. I've wanted to be in a relationship for a while now, but when I look at my friends' relationships I get a little scared. So I dunno... no one really looks like they're interested in me so I guess I'll just stay lonely for a while :\

Happiness. However you achieve it, just be happy, single or not. In the end, happiness is all that matters.

I think everyone should understand the hurt of losing someone you love. Then you can understand Love and all it can be.


I really agree with this comment. Ive lived it. IN order to understand Love you must be hurt by it cause otherwise you would not have known you were in love. Therefore, its a yay that you felt love and a boo that you must suffer the loss. After experiencing true love, I prefer to be alone. But need to be close to someone.
