    I love being single ... yes it would nice to have a bf ... but the right bf .. being single is pretty awesome ... except like when you want to do stuff that would be more fun as a couple ... but just do it anyway and soon you find that it's not so bad to do it alone either

    I broke up with my ex because I can't keep a monogamous relationship.

    I enjoy being single. Doing things alone is so much simpler. But being in a relationship has its benefits too.

    Right now single > relationship.

    I currently have three bf's because I'm honest with them up front that I prefer to live alone (single) a be polygamous.

    It's amazing how tight a relationship can be when honesty is at the forefront. icon_wink.gif

    It depends. I want a relationship, but as others stated, with the right person. I have dated guys and they made my life way more complicated than it should be. Then I have dated guys who made me enjoy life a lot more. I like dating because then I can do more things beyond going out to dinner or a movie by myself or with friends all the time. Either way, I'm comfortable with both. It just has to be the right fit and not desperation.

    Yes, I enjoy it. I do what I want when I want, and have to answer to no one.

    I love my life, and I've been single for several years now--not because of some sort of deep opposition to relationships, but simply because the right guy hasn't come along. For the most part, I'm content with my own company and spending time with good friends, but there are moments when I wish I had the love and companionship of a partner in a relationship.

    I know some guys who feel lost without a boyfriend. Not surprisingly, as soon as one relationship has ended, they initiate a new one with someone else. I find these guys to be incredibly immature and needy, yet I marvel at how easily they slide into new relationships--it's never been that easy for me.

    I've been single for about 6 years and sometimes it has felt good and other times it hasn't. Right now I don't really mind because im doing pretty long hours at work and trying to squeeze in gym/preparing for xmas. I dont have a lot of time to go out on dates and get to know someone new so it's cool.

    It does get annoying when people keep asking 'have you found a boyfriend yet?' though.

    No issue at all with my own company in fact I need my space but, as above, finding the right balance between having a cool guy to hang out with over being smothered is hard to find add to that a job that I love but that has me working away a lot and at irregular hours/days, its just as well I can enjoy being single!!! ;) Pros and cons but I take being single and comfortable with myself over how some of my mates react to it and who jump from relationship to relationship for fear of being alone....each to his own!

    A friend of mine gave me a ring at graduation. It sat in a box for years. I put it on when I went to my best girlfriends wedding in 2008. It worked like a charm and the family didn't try to set me up with any bridesmaids or friends. I've worn it ever since, works great at the office and other office parties.

    To answer the OP question, yeah, I'm good with being single. Like Roguewave, I'm comfortable traveling by myself and enjoy being able to go and do things at the drop of a hat. It would be nice to have some one to share experiences with, but I'm good with being single.

    90% I am enjoying being single.
    10% I want someone.

    Normally want someone when I've had a bad day or when its cold or rainy outside and I just want someone to come cuddle with.
