      I see, I guess it's hard to change an old habit, everyone chooses what is better for him/her.

      you know the old saying: "familiarity breeds contempt" ?

      Sometimes too much of a good thing also turns sour at times. I truly value my quiet times, sleeping alone is way more restful, and absence makes the heart grow fonder. Old cliches but true.

      That's very interesting point of view, but why you wouldn't want to combine this 2 enjoyable worlds into one amazing world?

      Actually, no. I never believe in "blanket' statements, as there are always exceptions to whatever we think might be a truism for everyone.

      If i could find someone who i trust and believe that feels the same way about the enjoyment of living alone, that would be a perfect arrangement. You could conceivable have both worlds to enjoy.

      Sure, I agree, it's all a matter of individual preferences, but I think you agree on the point that to have someone by your side who you trust, believe, love is better than living alone.

      Great hub. everything you say is true. But for some of us living alone is preferable. It is often difficult to adjust your lifestyle by inviting someone into your already comfortable life. Ideally when you reach your 60s and above it is to have great companionship that you know will not intrude on your personal space for any length of time.

      We get set in our ways and it is difficult to change and if we try for the sake of companionship we soon wish we had that "personal" space back again. I guess it's all a matter of individual preferences.

      in my opinion, age is not the barrier to find true love. Its up to you and fate to seek true love. Don't listen to bad remarks and rumors. Just believe in your partner. Great hub with lots of tips that single men and women should read. Voted up
