    I believe that some are lucky enough to find their happiness with another person while others find it somewhere else.  in any case, happiness is subjective.

    It is my belief that happiness is a state of mind. I was not in a relationship for about 5 years, it was just me and my dog, and I was still happy and at that time my life felt full. I have many good friends. But,  It depends on your perspective if you dwell on not being in a relationship or if you look at it as if I am free to do whatever I want, its can very empowering!

    I believe it depends on the person. Some people are just meant to be part of a twosome while others are just loners or even if they are gregarious they are better as single people. I was single for a long time and really enjoyed the time on my own but have been in a relationship for a long time and love that as well. So, it probably can also depend on the time in one's life as well. Hopefully, everyone can be okay with being on his or her own. I believe coming into a relationship because we want to rather than because we NEED to is so much more beneficial and we bring a more interesting fulfilled self to the table.

    Very much so. You define and create your happiness; not someone else. They can add to your happiness; but your happiness should not be contingent upon them.

    I think people are designed to be social beings. Whether or not that means being married just depends on the person or the time in their life. I knew that I wanted to be married and enjoy the companionship.

    Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! I am a very happy single gal. I was married. It was tough. My life is more peaceful and loving now. I like being single. I hope that someday I will be happily married but ONLY if I meet a man who is worth it.
