and that is key. Be yourself do the things you enjoy, and the right person will be there god willing,

internet datting can work but just do it for fun, you may meet some cool people and some jerks of course.

Although I am quite capable of handling the tough stuff, and I have plenty of laughter in my life, I truly believe that sharing a sorrow lessons the pain and sharing a joy doubles the delight. If a good guy came along, I would be just as happy to blend our lives together as I am now on my own.
Well said. I feel the same way. I'm 36 and have always been single, and to be honest, I've never been in a serious relationship. When I was in my 20s, I was upset that I was missing something and that I was "falling behind" on the schedule that society (or our parents! ) wants us to keep.

Now well into my 30s, I am at peace with being single. I am happy and content on my own and if I am meant to meet a special someone, then it'll happen. I have my family and friends, and my best friend since grade school is more like a sister to me...and I have my furbabies...so I'm good.

One of my co-workers and I had a good conversation about the single life, and what we decided upon is the notion to NEVER believe that you have to have a man to "complete" you, but that having a relationship should ENHANCE the happiness you already have in your life.

Yeah I'm tired of it too. Its been a long time since I've met someone I've wanted to date. I have the friends trying to set me up, but that's not working. I need a gamer who'll play World of Warcraft with me.

I don't feel I NEED a man. I'd just like to met someone so I'm not so lonely sometimes.

How odd that I read this today - i have been single for a few years now, and am pretty much happy with it - I have so many friends either married or in relationships who tell me I dont need a man, but was watching Bridget Jones' Diary 2 last night and thought - would be nice to snuggled up to a man, yet i am snuggled up to a cat!! But, like some of the others on here, I am too used to my own company, and wouldn't be able to deal with someone wanting to know where I am, when I will be home, wanting to do soemthing when all I want to do is either sit in front of the comp or the TV etc, and if I ever did get serious with a bloke, they would have to accept not just my cats, but my fostering and the other bits I do for my charity - cos I can't see me ever not fostering.

And you can send any that don't fit your life over east to the Massachusetts coastline, and I'll try them on for size!

Well I thought I would pipe up...since I am notorious for being lonely...

I have to say I do love doing everything on my own terms and doing what I want when I want..

BUT, I do feel lonely alot because I do not have alot of friends around here..If I lived in my hometown where all my friends are, I wouldn't have time to feel lonely.

Sometimes I wish I had someone to share life with..its nice to feel loved and wanted by another human.

Plus, nothing beats the feeling of falling in love

Sounds to me like you need more chocolate!

Seriously, I agree with you, but it's the letdown AFTER that that I don't enjoy. You know, once you start to see what he is REALLY like, when he's no longer trying to impress you.

Ahhhh...I'm a cynic, LOL...

Well that would depend, when itta goes back to indo she feels lonely without me there,
cause after a couple weeks her friends are back to dealing with there real lives, with there BF/husband, and she wants to come back to where i am again.

her being gone for a few months out of the year upsets her way more then it does me.
i am very good at finding things to keep myself busy.

and yes i talk to the cats

I personally am only 26 but have not had any single time since i was 14, it's mostly been just one long term relationship after another since then. I am finally ready to take a break. The thought of another relationship makes me gag right now, seriously. I supposed there will come a time when I'm interested in something again, but I can't forsee it anywhere in the near future. There are times when I am lonely but I don't long for a man, I usually just long for something to do. For me, men just complicate everything. I have compromised and compromised throughout my whole teenage years and early 20s, from where I was going to school, to what I was going to do for a career, where I was going to live, etc, to make relationships work. Well now, finally it's about ME. I hope it's not too late!!

Today is one of those days, when I miss having someone around. I left work early, because I am sick and it sure would be nice if someone ELSE was heating up the chicken soup and rubbing my back.

Having a guy isn't as much fun as you think. The "Wine and Dine" parts are great until you hit that comfortable spot. I sometimes MISS the single life.

That's why i love the way my relationship is with Gil, because the sparks still there with not seeing each other 24/7. My last boyfriend was in the "settled" routine after two years

That's so true.

I'm tired of it as well. I'm 27 and a Cubs fan from Chicago. How YOU doing? Furbabies are a lot easier to keep content than a woman.

I cannot imagine being single. But if, God forbid, something should happen to my SO, though, I would remain single. As much as I would hate being single, it would be a matter of not having HIM, not just having someone in my life. The very thought of dating again makes me cringe. I have been very lucky with this great guy, and it would be out of the question to find another one that good. I would become the krazy kat lady in the neighborhood.
