Recently i got into an argument with my friend. She thinks relationship keeps you from having fun because you compromise more often ?
What do you guys think? I would love to discuss with you on this.
Depends on your own definition of fun.
For me personally I can have a good time, or have fun as in lots of laughter, and enjoy funny occasions with either being on my own, with friends, family or with a special someone.
I always want a girlfriend when I'm single. I always want to be single when I've got a girlfriend. Either I haven't met the right girl yet, or I'm extremely confused.
Your freind is right ... Since being single again, I'm having tons of fun!
Is lonely fun?
I have been married 43 years. I would never want to be single. She is my best friend and lover, my helpmate, my confidant and companion.
What "fun" can you have that I do not have with her?
Not everyone who's alone is lonely, though. Alone is fun for a lot of people.
If you cannot have fun because you compromise, I'd say you have a definite problem. Life is always a compromise whether with a mate or a friend.
In addition, a relationship always provides someone to have fun with - you don't have to go out and find someone. Is your friend just ticked off because you spend time with a SO instead of with them?
so you can do without love, if you have lots of fun is that it?
Being single can be the pits, just as marriage or relationships can be the pits. I was married for a long time. I've been single for a few years now, and although I prefer a relationship, it's been good for me to understand myself more, and learn how to be happy on my own. Both can be good experiences. Maybe at some point I'll be in another relationship, but until then, I'm good to go.
I think married people have more fun - as long as they're happily married!
Wow, that's the typical "grass is always greener" arguement. LOL! But seriously, I believe it all depends on the importance of values and personal preferences one decides to have. It could go either way. Me personally, after everything I've experienced a successful relationship only adds more over time to my fun! I couldn't imagine being single right now.
I miss being single sometimes, but i am SO much happier being in a relationship. I was a wreck when I was single, maybe it's just a coincidence but I hope I never have to go back and find out.

Why are people so baffled that some like being alone and not dating, or being in a relationship?Why are so many concerned with the fact that some people choose to stay single and not date or be in a relationship? Maybe they haven't found the right one, are working on themselves, or maybe they...

This time of year is difficult for most everyone, especially singles, and "oh joy, I just had my heart broken, too!" What are some ways to avoid feeling lonely during the holiday season? Especially when it seems like everyone is going in couples to stores all around?

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...

Everyone says valentine is for lovers and it maybe rightly so, but what do single people who are not in a relationship do on this 'romantic day'. Just out of curiosity. Is it just another day or it is a day to loathe those who are in love and receiving gifts
