Can a person remain happy being single through out his life?
while having close friends and supporting family
Yes it is possible. Not everyone finds happiness in relationships, some people are happier by staying by themselves. There are a lot a factors that influences that choice and they are all personal, based on passed experiences.
Yeah, it's not necessary to have a relationship in your life. For example I'm not the relationship type guy, I just have too many ideas and projects in my life that I cannot find a space for another person in my life right now. It depends on the goals of the person, each one have different goals, for some a nice and long standing relationship is the only goal, but for others educations, work, sports, traveling, etc are more important goals than a relationship, the important thing here is that you're happy with your choices, do whatever you want, but be happy with it.
Absolutely if you are refering to being single as in "marital status" ala George Clooney (married once and promised never to do it again), Al Pacino (never been married), John Cusack, and Leonardio Dicaprio....etc.
These are single men who date and have relationships. However they are free to get married to anyone they choose.
Awhile back I asked a the question: "What does being single mean to you?" Quite a few people did not view it as a marital status.
They defined being single as not involved with anyone, not dating, and essentially living the life of a monk or nun. Oddly enough many of the same people that consider dating and living together to mean a person is NOT single also viewed those relationships as "uncommitted". If you call it an "uncommited relationship" aren't you saying the people are "single". hmmm
The legal definition of being single would apply If someone were dating or even living together and they had to fill out medical insurance papers which asked for their marital status. Most would count them self as "single". Ulitmately I believe it's possible to be happy without ever getting married,
I hear you, everyone has it's own opinion different goals and dreams. For me being single(I define single as being not in a relationship, without children) unbearable, maybe because I'm used to share every minute of my life with my husband and my ch
People have the ability to be happy, regardless of marital status.....and in spite of many things. Assuming one is single by choice, it wouldn't make sense to remain that way, if it made you unhappy.
Simply not having a spouse, doesn't necessarily mean that a person feels lonely or unfulfilled in life. One's position and frame of mind, is a series of choices and decisions, made throughout a lifetime. What is my career choice? Where do I want to live? What are my most important goals? Do I prefer to live alone and unmarried, or would it benefit me to seek a relationship and consider marriage and a family?
Personally, I know several individuals who have always been single. They seem to be genuinely happy, successful and personable. Often, it's quite satisfying to have close friends and loving family members, but continue to live the single lifestyle. Happiness is also a choice.....a state of mind. Most importantly, if you cannot be happy with yourself, it's doubtful you'd be happy pairing off!
For every unhappy single person, there are many unhappy married persons. I don't think happiness has anything to do with marital status.
I know a person who has been single all his life he many friends, goes to many events, and has his family support, all this makes him very happy. An individual can be happy even when single not everyone needs married life to prove their happiness.
It's all a matter of personal preference, I think.
I think being single is a middle-of-the-road kind of thing. If you have a compatible spouse, being married is better, otherwise it's better to be single.

What does being single mean to you?Traditionally being single defined one's (marital) status. Anyone who is not married is legally considered (single) or available to get married. However most of us now place (dating couples) on the same pedestal as married couples. Therefore today we say single...
