So in all honesty why are you single? I'm talking serious real talk here.

For me personally there are 3 reasons.

1. I was not mentally or emotionally capable to have a relationship when I was with the ex I was head over heels in love with. If we had stayed friends a few months longer before jumping into a relationship we would be married with a family at this point. As it was things feel apart but we stay in touch.

2. I'm very picky, I want someone who shares a lot of my interests and has a somewhat uncommon personality. I live in a decently rural area, there is a geek community but honestly there aren't many single women.

3. I'm shy, the thought of starting a conversation with a stranger scares me. It's not impossible that I've walked right by miss perfect in a coffee shop, comic shop or other random public place and both of us just failed to say hello.

So what about you?


I can relate to number 2, I spent much of my childhood in WVa and where I'm at now isn't really any less rural. I wouldn't say I'm picky though, really all I ask is that she read a book once in a while, not get confused when I use a word with 3 or more syllables, not wanna haul me off to church, and possibly produce a kid or two without adding to an existing total.

1.) Considering I only see my friends once a month (maybe even longer if we're all really busy), I don't it's a good idea to start a relationship...

2.) I'm not emotionally mature at all and I don't think it would be healthy to be in a relationship.

3.) I'm shy at meeting strangers.

4.) I like being alone a lot of the time, and I get really grumpy if I don't get my alone time.

I would list my reason but I'd get banned in a heartbeat.

So many reasons. Biggest being because relationships have taken such a dive over the years. I see too many people get screwed over. Really bad divorces and bitterness. So I can leave relationships on the back burner and wait out for the small chance of a possible good one to come along.

Cause I'm an idiot and ruin any relationship i'm in. And even if its their fault, I always make myself the bad guy. That with a bad combo of being socially awkward and shy doesn't help either.

Let me count the ways.

1) Don't want to get married.

2) I don't want kids.

3) Too selfish to maintain a relationship.

4) I enjoy being by myself too much. Probably part of the selfishness.

5) Also too shy to even attempt to meet new people let alone allow them into my space.

For me, It's seems better this way. Not really a problem for me being single. Yes, I use to have a girlfriend. Around my sophomore year. But she was pretty fast for my taste. No offence to her though. I can handle the kiss segments, but getting busy is not what I'm expecting to have. In other words, I'm not ready. Right when I put my foot down the second time, she decides to break up with me. Which is reasonable. She's sounds like the type of girl who desperately wanted someone to be with for the rest of her live. I'm the type of guy who likes to takes things very slowly. Granted enough, We became friends again. But unfortunately we haven't been close ever since. What more could I say? lol.

That's pretty much what happened around that time. I'm actually really happy that I'm single. Just to run away from risk, and things that I'm not ready for. Won't mind getting a girlfriend. Everything is still gonna be the same regardless. As long as she's not going too fast, and blah, blah, blah that'll stress the heck out of me. But it doesn't mean I'm interested. In online dating that is. On top of that, cat-fishing is too risky for me.
