You're either single or you're not. It's like being either a boy or a girl. How are either of them not normal?

TBH, relationships come with their own host of problems so I find it hard to say which one is better. I think people are just scared of being alone so they assume being with someone else is better, but being alone is not the same as being lonely, just depends how you handle it.

I have a hard enough time dealing with coffee let alone something as mind-warping as love. Admittedly, sometimes it sneaks up on you unawares.

You might be working with a definition of love that equates it to infatuation or "eros".

Eros is one of the most natural things in the world while love is one of the most UNnatural things in the world.

This is because love is a rational commitment made as a decision, a decision to benefit someone else even at the expense of oneself. Also, to keep doing it unconditionally. Not only is it most unnatural, it is the most difficult thing to stick to.

To feel the warm and fuzzy is more than easy; To actually love is extremely difficult.

Isn't odd that when a person find oneself happy and contented sooner than later he/she dies? Just kidding.

Some adolescents desire companionship to help strengthen their identity and self worth. Also to rid themselves of insecurities so they have someone to lean on when times get tough like in teenage depression etc.

However, most adolescents are high;y susceptible to peer pressure, and to strengthen their sense of identity, they feel the need to conform to a group they think is cool or are afraid of being single until they die.

I could care less in all honesty.. Dating can be time consuming and gets me stressed out. Not like it's a lot I couldn't handle, but couldn't handle the paste. (More difficult to handle the paste than with a friend). But I guess it's all varies on the type of girl i'm with. (At least). So yeah. Right now, I'm happy that i'm single. Since I don't have to worry about stress and other things that likes to get in my way. Which is a breeze.

I'm single and while I would enjoy being in a relationship, I'm not in that much of a rush. My problem is I'm rather shy and it's hard for me to take the first step when I meet a girl I like. So I'm trying to work on being more confident.

I've been single for the last 3+ years and it's the best, why would I want to be in a relationship when I can focus on me 24/7? Besides, I am literally the worst person to sleep with, even in just a queen by myself I take up 90% of the bed, and I need all the blankets, thanks.

Single. Probably because I've never liked most girls aside from physical attractiveness.

Single. Been in a relationship, didn't work out at all. I don't mind waiting till I find the right one I guess.

Two months ago, I ended a pretty long relationship (6+ years)
Luckily were still friends, best friends. But I ended it because my ex was a REALLY great guy, but I just wasn't putting in the effort I felt he deserved. To be a bit more honest, I didn't really have the desire to put more effort in.

But man, I really do enjoy being single so much more.
Right now, I feel like I don't really care if I ever get in a relationship again.

All I want is to make new friends, meet more people and just enjoy being with people!
There is something about going on dates, holding hands, and doing all that kind of stuff. It just feels so...Weird? I dunno.
I also really dislike being wanted sexually. Just ugh, makes me feel really uncomfortable.

I like being able to live my life freely however I want. Now, I'm not saying that relationships are hindering or anything, but when it comes to big life choices you always gotta keep the other person in mind and what kind of strain it'll put on the relationship.

Single or in a relationship?

I think it's pretty much a "grass is always greener on the other side" kind of thing.

Both have their good points and their bad points. I have been single for a very, very long time. For the most part, I am content with that. I don't have to answer to anyone but myself and I am able to do what I want to do when I want to do it. At the same time, the years keep passing by and I would like to be able to find someone who I can be myself around and who, in turn, feels comfortable being themselves around me. Just...genuine companionship, you know?

Hopefully someone will come around, but if not then my world will not end and I will continue doing the best that I can with my life as I have been this entire time.

Again, I guess it's a "grass is always greener on the other side" thing. *shrug*

I'm alright with being single, but sometimes there are nights where I just want some TLC(Tender Loving Care in case you don't know) you know? But there are pros and cons for being single and dating someone.

My schedule is too hectic atm for me to be in a relationship anyways, school and football.

I'd rather be single than be one of those people who force themselves to date whoever they can find, just to say they aren't single. It's sad really. I don't have a problem with being single, but of course I'd love to date someone who I'd actually want to date.
