How to explain to your new partner why you have been single for so long?
When it's been years since you've had a relationship.
You shouldn't have to explain at all. That isn't something that should be a big deal in a relationship and if it is, then it's a relationship you shouldn't be in.
Oh this question used to offend me...I used to think of it intrusive especially coming from someone whom I do not know and knows me little. It implies many things.
It does not offend me anymore.
There is only one answer..I chose it that way. I would rather be single than settle..It means when I choose whom to be with, I am absolutely certain in my heart, mind, body and soul that that person is the one.
Choice is and will always be the privilege of the free.
I totally agree with you. Having a long history of singleness doesn't mean there's something "wrong" with you--just that you're holding up a higher standard. I'd rather wait for the right one than waste time with the ones that are wrong!
I used to think that was what they implied..is there something wrong with me?..I don't anymore. Some of them are just curious..that is all..
I agree with you msorensson. Its just a pity that so many people subject themselves to relationships they do not want to be in just so they can say that they are not single.
Msorensson, you are always so wise and honest with your words Thankyou!
Just tell them you were taking time for yourself. There's nothing wrong with that.
I think it looks worse when someone jumps immediately from one partner to the next, again and again, because they can't stand being alone.

I was waiting for you. :-)
I wasn't ready for a relationship. That's not so unbelievable given that many whom I met were not ready either.
Just be honest. Tell the real reason why. If the reason is because you simply chose it that way, then say it. There's no harm in telling the truth, and I don't think it's a big deal. Your new partner should accept you as you are and should have no problem with that.
