    Hey guys! So I recently became single again...at first it was tough not having my guy around, but then when I went out on a couple dates I relized I kinda missed the single life.

    Just curious...would you guys rather be single and dating around, or in a monogamous relationship?

    Brad,

    Sorry to hear about this. After being in a relationship for almost 20 years, I can say without a doubt that I would prefer a relationship.

    There may be a lot of ups and downs and a lot of rough patches, but I wouldn't give it up for anything.

    Of course, there are times when I see someone and wish I could just throw them down, right then and there. lol But, all I have to do is think about the good man that I'm blessed with.

    I've always been single and have never really dated around either... I would like to have a long term relationship, but based on a lot of what I've encountered in my area, I'm not about to go pick a random guy just for the sake of saying I'm not single.

    To answer the question, I would rather have the monogamous relationship.

    I've been alone for so long now I don't know if I would even know how to be in a relationship.

    But after all the changes I've gone through in the last couple of years, I feel like I am in a place where I am more ready to try than I ever have been. There are days when I feel lonely and wish I had someone just to hang out with. - Now, the challenge is finding someone who would even be interested...

    I'm happy single or in a relationship. I'd like a monogamous relationship if possible.

    For misery, I'd keep myself company because I certain don't need someone elses misery or craziness.

    I don't know which I prefer, because both have advantages. I guess if you need someone in your life to share it with in order for you to feel complete then being in a relationship is where you are happiest. I've never really been that way. Sure, I love the romance, and intimacy, and all the wonderful things that go with being in love and sharing your life with someone. On the other hand, I also love the freedom and simplicity of the single life. It's sort of a toss up for me.

    Although I don't _need_ it, I'd like to be in a relationship. I learned a few things from being single AND from my last go round with a partner. I'd do a lot different, and would be glad for another chance.

    Single. Forever.

    I've been in relationships and found they slowed me down.

    I do my best work when I am single.

    Single is good. The only reason I'm in a relationship is that he is a good guy and it's a good relationship, and I feel rather lucky about it all. I don't think I will ever be in a sucky relationship ever again just to be in a relationship.

    I thought this was a poll. Where is my voting button?

    Anyway, I am single and I really enjoy it. I can do what I like, when I like and do not have to compromise very much. If I met someone who I really hit it off with, then, of course, I would expect to adapt my lifestyle accordingly.

    With anything, they both have positives and negatives.

    Being single, I do like the freedom to do as i please and not have to worry about someone else. However, I do miss having someone to care about. I could go on... but in a nutshell, I would say I'd rather be in a relationship. I'd like to have someone special icon_wink.gif

    I'd prefer to be in a relationship with a great guy. I have been and want to be again.

    That said, I'd rather be single instead of wishing I was. It's a pretty poor situation to be in a relationship with the wrong person.

    Monogamous relationship.
    I don't really see dating around as part of what it means to be single.
