I don't think it's possible to get peace of mind either way. If you're single, a part of you is always hoping to find someone, even if you're saying to anyone that will listen that you like being alone. And if you're in a relationship, there's a host of issues, good and bad, that always resonate. But to answer your question, in my opinion, life is always better when you have someone to share it with.
i loved being single when i was single. it was great to be able to do as i pleased, to be able to have sex with different women or to sleep alone, which ever worked at the time but i will say that having someone to love you and to be there for you is a bit more awesome.
Ultimately........being single because Im not going to define my happiness based on being dependent on another person. Being single is the reality. Anything else is extra. I dont want someone to complete me. I would like someone to compliment me. Vice versa. Peace of mind can be had in either situation but only if its first found in being single.
I would prefer to be in a relationship with the right person. Life is so much better when you have a partner to share it with. However, I would rather be single than stuck in a relationship with the wrong person. That is my two cents on the topic.
Mr. CJ Wood Right Person...!!! ??? Huh? U don't land in safe hands all the time... U never know, if the person you chose is the right one...All you do is welcome the person with open arms and leave the rest on Him (Almighty)...
I would prefer to be in a relationship, but I'm single at the moment and I've been for quite a while now. I'm enjoying it though. Basically stress free, and I can do whatever I want. I'm just waiting on the right woman to come along. I'm very patient because I know it will be right when it happens.
I beg to differ. Finding the right person is probably pretty easy when you consider a singular person in the midst of a several billion sized population. Probably not as hard as it seems. The hard part for me has always been resisting the wrong person. I meet the 'wrong' person several times a day.
I like being single right now, and would prefer to be single for a few years more. I've got things I want to do, and it would be best if I was single when the time for those things comes around. Plus, girls at my college don't get in relationships-- they get married. Seriously; 20 is the average age for Mormon girls to get married, and I don't want that. I want a career and I want to study abroad, etc. Getting married or having a boyfriend is awesome, but just not right now in my life.
Personally, I like being single, as it allows me to try and build my reputation as a writer without having to worry about a partner or kids. One day, if the right girl comes along, things may change. Two things that I am certain of, is that I wouldn't want to get married or have children.
Single, basically means single, not in a relationship of any kind. I don't consciously place restrictions on myself, but the likelihood of me actually hitting on a girl is very low, due to shyness. Commitment is a very big step for anyone, and at this moment in time doesn't sound very appealing, but if the right girl comes comes along then perhaps I'll entertain the notion.
After spending over 30 years of my life in two marriages and two long-term relationships, I am now single and happier, more content and more fulfilled than I have ever been before. I do not intend to change my status ever again!
Your reply is the reason I love words. The majority of your response is factual and the message concrete - been there, done that; I have a happy and content life being single. But that last sentence, where you don't "intend" to be with anyone ever again, could imply to the message receiver, that despite your bold statement your heart is still, even if only slightly, open to the possibility of a relationship. For the record, I believe you, I just found your response interesting.
When we're not in one, we want one. When we're in one, we want to be single. I was single for a long time and was more caught up in the issue in why no one seemed to want to date me, rather than addressing "do I really want to be in a relationship?". There's a big difference. Now I'm with a great guy but I honestly forgot how hard it can be to adjust to a relationship. When it's hard, I want out and wonder what I didn't like about being single. Honestly though, it's wonderful to have a good guy to stand by me and be my friend and love me.
I've been in a relationship for just over 3 years, and to be honest i don't know which i would prefer or which would give me peace of mind. On one hand, I am totally in love with my partner and don't know what i would do without her but there are days when i feel like i would be happier on my own. I feel like i was stronger, more independent, more driven and motivated before i was in this relationship; but can i really atest the loss of these things to the relationship? or is it just my own self views that have diminished these qualities.
Anyhow, I'm not particularly happy with my life overall right now but i am working towards that, however so slowly. Somedays the relationship brings me down and somedays it puts me on top of the world.
I do agree that it depends on where you are in your life as to which makes you more happy.
Well, there are pros and cons. When are with someone,you have the company of another, but you have to maintain that relationship.... and keep that person's attention and make some compromises. When you are not in a relationship, you don't have to do all that, but you'll want to be with someone.
I'm enjoying being single at the moment, but who knows how long that will last. I'm dating, but I haven't met anyone so far that excites me. I love that feeling when you meet somebody and the chemistry is right and everything just sparks. And you can't eat or sleep or do anything but think about him. I love falling in love. I love being in love. I love the thrill and the excitement that comes with it all. So, even though my last marriage was such an emotional rollercoaster ride that I think I have PSTD along with the whiplash, I'm always open for something new and wonderful to come my way.
There are pros and cons to both being single and being in a relationship. I think I have "mastered" being single, and am now interested in keeping the relationship I have. Being single can teach you a lot, and it can be very rewarding, but I think the benefits from a healthy relationship far outweigh those of a healthy solitude.
