There's a thread going on called "why are you single" which I can't participate because I'm not single.

However, I was obviously single before I wasn't single so I know how it goes.

BUT, I feel there's something implicit in the question of "why are you single":

1. Somehow being single is not generally desirable
2. Being single is not "normal" as in the bell-shaped mathematical curve

Sometimes I was perfectly happy being single. I could do what I want, on my own (non-)schedule. I just have to think about what I wanna eat, what I wanna watch, my own hobbies etc.

I saw a cool response in that thread:

"I'm single 'cause I want to be, baby!"

Someone who is happy.

Sometimes I saw teenagers respond in a not-so-happy way.

If I were a teenager and I saw the question, I would say "...Because it's normal??"

Perhaps if you're in your late 20s and you see people couple up all over the place, I could understand dignifying a question such as "why are you single".

As for the self-question "why am I single?"... A man probably wouldn't be up to such self examination until perhaps late 30s, and a woman in their early 30s (that is, if they care about having children). As for people middle-aged and over, the question wouldn't apply because they already have the answers.

Being happy is a state of mind and not really a state of being. Not being single (or being single) could make you happy or even the reverse (oh yeah I've seen my share of troubled couples)- It depends on the person and how things are handled by the person.

So here it is, a thread for happy single people. Too bad I can't participate here either but have fun.

Hmm~ I guess being single is better than trying to dodge all the pains at last and getting smacked in the face by all the pains. :L

The last thing I'm looking for is getting into a relationship.

Single = Focus on improving yourself.

I'm happy being alone.
Relationships are overrated.

Because you're already in one with Phersu?

I guess I can't participate either because I'm not single BUT when I was, I was still happy. For me, being happy didn't depend on my relationship status.

Though that bell curve comment and the reasoning that followed did give me an 'ah-ha!' moment.

I wouldn't say I'm happy, more along the lines of content, I also have never been in a relationship, and I don't plan on going out of my way searching for one. But I'm definitely not against the idea of being in one. In fact it would probably be interesting.

I absolutely love being single. I detest experiencing the emotions of a young teenage girl "in love". They're too much to handle right now.
