Contrary to popular belief, being single isn't a good thing. It's only a good thing if there's no one to date. But, if there are people who meet your standards and you're single, it's not good. I wouldn't necessarily call it bad, but it's not a good thing. The people who say it's good are either themselves single and in denial, or they aren't single (which is hypocritical) and they're just trying to make single people feel better. Anyways, guess I better answer the question now: I'm single.
