So...how many of us are...single (me)

Recommended Posts

I'm currently together with the best guy I've ever met in my life. I used to have a lot of flings left and right for years, but I guess I've grown over that. Never had many serious relationships though.

Going on 32 and still single. Never really had any girl friends other than a few blind dates that my friends set me up on , way back in the day. Didn't really have any connection whatsoever, and never saw either of them again after that, so I don't know if I count them or what.

 

Other than that I'm a over weight dude with extremely low self esteem who would like to have a real girl friend/ family someday, but chances are extremely good that I'll end up dying with a TON of friends, but without a girl friend or family.

Me, forever and always more than likely. I just don't meet the precise requirements laid out by society in order for any relationship with the opposite sex to form, at least where I live. Most girls and women I'm around are rude and obnoxious. I've never even gone out with a girl just to hang out and talk. I'm no hermit either, in fact I barely stay home. I spend a lot of money on gas and food just so I can be around others. The only way I see me in a relationship is by going to another country, it's one of my long-term goals as of now. I hate to admit it, but sometimes I wish I were bisexual so my chances were higher.

Lel, even being bisexual isn't enough at times. Nah, just kidding doubles the chances and it really does actually never has a girl ever shown interest in me but the same can not be said about my own gender. Still then you just have distance instead. 

 

I'm usually alone though I like being alone at times sometimes not. Either way I like driving around it's fun.

 

So whatever right.

I'm single, and I don't mind it. Really, while I also wouldn't mind being romantically linked with someone, it's not exactly crucial for me. I'm 28 & all, and I have one previous girlfriend through an online relationship from 03 to 07, so yeah. :)

Yeah everyone around my age already has kids that are 5-6 years old and here I am had never any experience with even talking to females. I had a good friend who turned out to be bi-curious and found he was more successful. 

 

Dating sites are crap. You'd have to be "this tall", act "this way" and have "this job". Besides, there's no personal contact, unless you Skype or something. I would rather go to another country and actually pay someone legally for a relationship, because here it's illegal. I wouldn't find someone trustworthy enough anyways, so might as well have one night stands and say bye, right?

Same here.

 

Exactly like if you don't fit that box you're just left out of it. Though paid relationships and one night stands won't make it better. Truth is, we're just left out for a reason probably.

I would say the only thing that comes close that leaves us being left out are those that think we are genetically unable to sustain a healthy bond. It's just all uncertainties and misunderstandings, shame really. I've only kissed a girl, well...she kissed me, but since I didn't have a job at the time, she didn't want to be with me. It's funny because a month after she left, I found a job. The only question that leaves me unanswered: "Why can't we all just be friends and stop creating unrealistic traits of a person and just have fun?"

 

I really wouldn't mind going with a complete stranger to see a movie or something, but oh, I can't because I'm not superman on steroids! Yeehaw.

Been single for about two years now. The only two relationships that I've had were both long-distance and stayed just that.

 

 

 

I think it's true about what they say with you need to be happy with yourself before you find someone else.
 

I'm beginning to think this to be true as well. How true though, is still up in the air.

I've been trying hard to iron out my shortcomings where at this point, it can't be denied that it has bore some fruit but that doesn't mean I'm out of the woods yet. In the wake of it, I've gotten more confident in myself (relatively speaking), more functional and more honest with myself but I still have a ways to go.

 

It just seems like in my darker days where loneliness would emotionally cripple me, there's this idea that having a SO would improve one's self-esteem but I honestly don't think it would solve the problem. If anything, it'll make you utterly dependent on her and if that happens, you just might be setting yourself up for an abusive relationship (though in my darker days, I've thought about such a "compromise"...) Or maybe you'll find someone who won't use your dependency to her advantage and who'll tend to your every emotional need timely and competently where you'll never have to worry about anything ever again. Good luck with that.

 

Think and reflect on it. It's all I ask...

23 year old lifelong single here! No experience of dating or relationships whatsoever.

 

I'm very shy and I tend to keep to myself, so dating opportunities are obviously rare for me. I've been going out and socialising a lot more than I used to though and I'm not as shy as I was, so hopefully things will change some day.

Yep I am still single and probably will be for a very long time...

Single and probably going to be for a long time. I don't exactly interact with people and my schedule is already full with work and video games. Not that I'm unwilling to make time for someone if the opportunity came up, mind you, but as it is I'm barely gonna meet anyone, let alone a girlfriend.

 

This post probably sounds far more desperate than I intend it to be. If I meet someone that's great but I'd be content with living by myself for the rest of my life. I've got plenty of things to entertain myself with.

 

On the other hand, posting in this topic at all sounds like a fish for attention so there's not much I can do about that. :lol:

I have been single for over 2 years now, with the first half of that being lied to by my bitch of an ex.  To sum it up, I thought we were postponing talks of getting married until she felt that she was mentally okay (being pregnant brought back painful memories for her) to be in a relationship.  During this time, she slept with her previous ex while our son was sleeping in his nearby crib, and only told me about it around 4 months later because she thought she might have been pregnant and didn't know if the baby belonged to me or him.  We argued about how we viewed the separation, with my bottom line being that she knew what my stance was because I continuously brought up how I was waiting for her.  We were still active together, and the fact that she did it with our son less than 10 feet away told me that I should be thankful that we never wed.

 

However, in the year+ since then, I've made little attempts to find someone, and for various reasons.  Often times, I will only be at either home or work, and there's nobody at work that I'd consider hooking up with, even if I didn't have that personal rule in place.  I have begun taking classes at a university, but haven't really had a chance to mingle with my fellow students.  (Ironically enough, though, I'm going to such a chance later this evening).  I do believe that at my age, the chances of finding someone may be diminishing...

@@Washougal_Otaku, Good riddance I'd say, like that's just so wrong on so many levels. Still you're not that old really, so it's not unlikely you'll have another relationship hopefully much better then that.

Thanks!  She's eventually seen the error of her ways, thanks to her best friend not being a hormonal idiot.  And to be fair, she and I are still friends, mainly because we have a beautiful kid together, and she is a fun person.  I just have no interest in ever hooking up with her, or anyone else that easy, again.

Yup, and it sucks. Being single sucks. But, being the convoluted, depressed anxietic wreck that I am, I doubt that status is changing anytime soon. I'm not going to sit and sulk about it though, I have more pressing issues to worry about.

And that's the thing: There's nothing to sulk about. A lot of people treat relationships like they are the be-all, end-all of their lives but there's a lot to live for and having someone by your side isn't automatically going to make all that better. In some cases it could make it far worse.

Eighteen years old, male, single, and every relationship I've ever been in has ended in disaster. Though I may have been dating the wrong kind of people. Namely, the kind of people actually willing to go out with a nerdy loser like me.

I've been single since birth and I know why. I don't ever approach anyone, and keep to myself. Even in project management I'm just given the work and I'll submit it when I'm done.

 

That said I wouldn't consider myself awkward in social occasions. I used to have friends back in high school, we talked, joked, gamed, all of it. I can keep a conversation going.  Though I guess you could say I don't have the "guts" to ask someone out. If I'm ever to date someone they'd have to ask me out, which is unlikely seeing I'm not social. Oh well.

Now, I'm meh about looking because everytime it becomes a disaster.
