Is it ok to be single?

Is it ok to be single for the rest of your life?

Report as

Why wouldn't it be? I wouldn't think it's ideal, though. The person may be pretty lonely. I wouldn't want to be.

You can be in a room full of people & be lonely. Being alone allows you to grow & explore your inner self. Sadly too many of you believe you have to have a partner or husband or lover to not be lonely. Marriage doesn't create love. A lot of bitterness has grown from the bonds of marriage.

Too many of "you?" I didn't claim that I'd be lonely without a partner. I like being by myself.

Sorry I thought you said above you wouldn't think it's ideal. Sorry if I misinterpreted it.
Report as
That's alright, kazarina. I'm speaking in general. Personally, I would want a man, if it's the right man. I could be content enough without one, too. I enjoy being by myself, very much.

I love being single & I'm not lonely. Singleness allows you to become your true self. The only limits you place on yourself are those that you are comfortable with. There's no bathroom queue, no one to leave the toilet seat up, the cap off the toothpaste or other daily annoyances. When you want company you go out with friends. When you want Devoted love you cuddle your dog. Single life allows you a freedom to be you everyday in every way & never have to act differently just because someone else wants you too. Rejoice in your singleness while you have it.

Hi thanks for your comment. . Life is so trouble free & uncomplicated when your single. I changed my profile a few days ago.

They deleted my other comment. I have a refrigerator magnet that says, The more I learn about men, the more I like my dog. That's why I call men pigs and never dogs.

Lol. Yes Pet dogs have a lot going for them in the companionship & devotion departments.

I was very content living with my husband. Although I have missed him greatly, since he passed away, I am content to live alone as well. I don't have a personality that demands the company of others. I suppose I'm adaptable, to whatever situation I choose to be in, alone or in a relationship.

Well I hope it gets better for you anyway. I like to see everyone happy.

I was single for many years before I was married. I have a sister who is still unmarried. She sometimes asks me what it is like to be married. My advice is to enjoy the freedom that being single brings. Once you marry or enter into a serious relationship there are many responsibilities that come along with it. My husband's mother was old and started having strokes around the time we were first married. We were responsible for her care. There are certain things that are expected by your spouse once you marry. I always hated it when the first thing my husband would say after coming home was "What's for dinner?" As a single person I never thought about what I would have for dinner. As a single person, you don't have to consult another person before buying something, you just do as you wish. I find marriage to be hard work, a series of compromises for both people.

Yeah. It's fine. I've been single for the last three years and I didn't have any problem with it. You don't have to be in a relationship in order for you to be happy. I've been busy working in order to help my parents and that's what makes me happy. There's a right time for everything.:)

Yes. You can make decision without having to consult your partner or wait for his/her approval. And you don't have to answer to anyone.

Yeah! I've been single for about five years, and if I find someone I'll be lucky. :) Sometimes it's a good thing to be single. You don't need a boyfriend or a girlfriend to make your life perfect. Just be happy with your relationship status.

Okay, you're not going to be single for the rest of your life unless you choose to be. It isn't bad to be single now - however old you are? You'll find that special someone ;)
