In my experience, anyone who says "I like/prefer being single because of ____", is essentially saying either "I don't want to date you" (where applicable) or "I haven't found a person who attracts me yet."

I say this because, frankly, being happily single without some form of neurosis or illusory rationalization requires a lot of work, and in most cases training.

I like being single!

In my early 20's I actually dated a girl I wanted to marry. I thought a lot about starting a family with her, and I would have done anything to see it happen, but in the end she was too young (like 19 to my 22) and it didn't end up working out.

After that there were some lonely times, a couple more shorter term relationships, some dating, some hook ups. But at some point I stopped caring/trying because I was feeling progressively less lonely and more self sufficient.

And now that I'm at the ass end of my 20's, I could honestly care less about being in a relationship, nor do I want to start a family- I don't like kids and I'm pretty sure I'd be a bad father so why bother? A FWB every now and then is cool, but other than that I really just enjoy keeping my own company most of the time. Plus I have a lot of close friends. I think an outsider might look at me and think I'm leading a sad life, but the reality is that I'm actually quite happy and content.

Been married so long that I don't remember what it's like to be single. For those who are single and loving it...good for you and rock on. For those who are single and hating it...develop a good case of malignant narcissism.There's no love like self-love.

I don't prefer to be single but I am. My sister told me I have the tendency to be single for the rest of my life since I am too cynic. The idea is creeping me out. I don't wanna be single. Lol

I'm single not by choice...
I don't deserve this.

There're perks to both. I like being single because I have freedom to do the things that I want like, hang with my bros, lift weights in the gym, play football, I have time to do stuff. But I also don't like being single because being in a relationship with someone you truly love is a feeling like no other.

I would want to be in a relationship because being able to open up to someone and share your emotions, dreams, and bonding with that person is an amazing feeling. But I wouldn't want to be in a relationship because unfortunately, having a relationship can be expensive. I don't have a job at the moment because of school, so I wouldn't be able to go on many dates.

Mood seems to play a big part in these things...

When I was still working toward my primary goals and in the height of my combine training I seemed to be rather popular (even though I kept those goals and the training as private information) My mood was definitely at a confident high and I didn't want any distractions from my rhythm. I preferred to be single then.

After I injured my achilles tendon last summer my mood gradually sank as I realized it wasn't going to heal in time for the regional combines and my mood has hit a low... suddenly I hate being single.

It would seem that my mood and attractiveness are proportionate in relation to each other while my mood and desire to be in a relationship is inversely proportionate.The lesson here is you probably shouldn't pass on opportunities I guess and also people are definitely able to pick up on your mood no matter what facade you put on.

I'm very weird about relationships.
I think its because of my mental disorders though.

I want a relationship badly because I like toting on people and being a really great datefriend.
But when ever I'm in a relationship I get extremely depressed after a period of time.

Its very awkward and a constant struggle.
But some day I'll find someone who is right for me.

I'm single coz I don't have room for relationship at the moment. Too busy with career and gym. Although, I ve to admit that having someone to share emotions, dreams is someday missing.

I'm single because I don't really go out of my way to meet people so finding a girlfriend is in the near impossible zone of things. Although I will say I don't hate being single, I also don't love it. I would love to have a girlfriend but it's my own fault since I don't go out and socialize much. I'll have to see how it pans out I suppose.

After countless relationships that end the same for most of them and I also haven't met the right girl. After a few years of being a single bachelor I enjoy it and I can say I am more confident in myself and more dependable. I have grown to be quite the daper gentleman that I am today. Yes I do date and have the occasional "hook-ups" but at this point in my life I can be happy in either situation and only time will tell.
