I have been married for 58 years now and have never been happier :)

58 years?! Congratulations, although I suspect that's a typo. If it isn't a typo, then really, congratulations!

And, I'm married. But only for 14 years, so Hannah has me beat.

A belated Happy Birthday, Hannah!


68% singles according to the poll...

I think your measure is becoming more reliable, Celes! :lol:

Did the common law thing when I lived in Montreal as one-third of all cohabitating couples in the province of Quebec here in Canada are actually not married. Some say that it was a backlash against the Catholic church in Quebec. When that relationship ended, I moved back to my home province of Ontario and now enjoying the independent single life again. Of course, I would love to be in a relationship again but only if it's with the right person. I would rather be single with just my two dogs here than with the wrong person.

Single but hoping to find my significant other.

For the moment I prefer being alone than with someone not suitable. But when I meet my SO, I will do everything in my power to have a good relationship.

I'm single, but attached so to speak. I've had someone I've been on and off with for over a year now.

It's a long, weird story hahaha.

Single! And I think I'll stay single for a while; at least until I feel ready to look for someone new again. For the time being I feel a need to spend some time alone to figure out my life and future, so that I can be the best me I can be, both for myself and for any potential new person entering my life :)
I've been in destructive relationships in the past, and have sort of put my life on hold for them, so I need to focus on building myself back up before entering any new relationship. Hopefully a future relationship will be positive and healthy for the both of us :love:

Single, but might just have found that special someone :heart:. Although, we've been friends for a long while, and we've gotten really close, so it might be a while until she ever feels more for me.

Dying from SINGLE-hood my whole 18 years, 9 months and 14 days of life. OK, maybe I wasn't thinking about that much when I was a baby. :/ But I take time to day dream about being attached everyday ever since......I can't even remember. My head is exploding as I write this. Though my head has been exploding for a long time.

Wow, I sound too desperate, LOL. But now is not the time for me to search. I feel like I am too immature to find a guy. Maybe when I am older and have a job, I'll stop feeling this way.

I know what you feel, Apu. I was 19 when I got into my first relationship, and by that time I was really desperate and let my standards down, getting stuck in an unfulfilling relationship for 1.5 years!! Be careful what you wish for, ey? :P

I found some solace in falling for fictional characters. Especially the misfits/cynics who I felt I could relate to. I still enjoy, and feel affectionate towards those character types in fiction, hehe.

All I can suggest is to join as many interest groups as possible to maximise the amount of people you meet, hence increasing the chances of finding someone compatible. Simple statistics :) And you will already have something in common if you meet people with similar interests! Another suggestion is to consider people you have known for a while. It could be difficult to suddenly change the friendship dynamic and it might be hard to tell apart attraction and platonic feelings, but you will know them better and be able to trust them more. I knew my current partner for a year and a month before we got together. By then I knew he was a really kind and confident person, so it went smoothly ;)

I am curious why you feel you are too immature? Is it because you would like to feel happy while single before you commit to anyone?

I'm single. Always have been. Sometimes I think though I had opportunities right in front of me and just missed them because I felt insecure. And the pressure of my friends didn't help me either. In the past few years most of my friends have gotten married and got kids or they're on the way while building their house. It's something I've been seeing a lot recently.

As for myself. I just end up wanting a relationship, but I never took the trouble of actually trying. Not even with the girls I thought were worth it. I'm just afraid of change. Also what I've seen about relationships was never quite inviting. There's always one of them who is never happy or something. Or they are so messed up that I wonder why they are even together.

Now through work I kinda learnt what I'm looking for in a woman. I met my best friend there and she is the kindest woman I have ever met. My first lady friend and the first one who didn't judge me over who I was. We were just always working together and it clicked. She was the first person who made me feel as myself and who I could really talk to. It made me realise, I'm looking for an understanding woman and who can make me feel at ease when around. Unfortunately she no longer works there thanks to a certain someone.

Anyway sometimes I don't know if I have to be happy about alone all the time. I miss the intimacy for one thing though I lack experience in that, but I've always enjoyed hugging. I hugged with my best friend when we worked together. On the other side I don't mind coming home alone at night and have dinner in front of the tv and being left alone for the rest of the night.

Right now still single and I think that will remain so for a while.

I am sorry to hear that, Jade.

I feel like I am immature because I have known about so many failed relationships of adults and that makes me sort of lose hope. Most of the people I know are quite "fast". I am more of a traditional sort of person. I want to be able to know that I can stay in a stable relationship. And from other people's experiences, I learnt that it's best if a person gets a job first and I know where he gets that job. But before that, I have to get a job.

I want that stability so that there is less chance of a failing relationship. For example, I want to live and work in the USA/Autralia but he would wants to stay close to his roots and settle in the country.

I want to kick myself for being suck a serious person who can't enjoy youth. Whatever "enjoing youth" means when you are a girl who have to stay indoors most of the time as there are many sleezy men outside, and who doesn't have many friends because she is dumb, "Ghumti" (it's a snine nickname some people gave me for wearing a scarf and being "not fast"). Oh wait, this is out of topic, LOL. OK, so that's why I feel immature, haha. I feel like I am still a baby who has to learn to "walk" before finding a partner to "walk" with, wow that's poetic.

I see. If you've got plans to move country then indeed it's best to wait until you do. I know people who have made long distance relations work but wayyyyy more who haven't (myself included).

And having financial stability is always good. It gets very stressful if you don't have that and have to rely on someone. Been there done that stuff went wrong :P (in my case, I lived with a bf for a few months when I had no money but his housemates were jealous that I didn't have to work to pay rent and wanted me out)
