Pros...
My place is my place.
I only worry about what's going on with me.
I don't lay awake cuz someone is snoring next to me.

Cons...
When I'm in a really good mood, there's no one there to share it with.
No one to spoil.
The place may be mine, but so are all of the bills.
Sometimes, ya just need a hug or a knowing smile.
Sense of security in knowing someone else is there.


These are kind of surface things. I could go much deeper, but I won't.

If I could split the bills, I would definitely be able to save money. But then, I would have someone to shop for.

Ask her if she "parties" and offer her like $80

There's a good semen disposal joke here I'm just too shit faced to think of it.

Luv2rite, let me share a little secret with you; there are 3 little magic words that can solve any problem in a relationship that's meant to be.

"I don't" know"

Where were you last night? "I don't know"

Were you talking to that bimbo? "I don't know"

Are you going to help my Dad change those tires tommorrow? "I don't know"

Who is that under you and why are your clothes scattered on the floor?

That's right, you guessed it, "I don't know".

Now go out there and give'm hell Luv2rite. Any more questions just let me know.

Actually the loneliness is worse. It's one thing to be lonely because there is no one there. It's quite another when you are lonely because of the person that is there.

Pros. You don't have to ask permission to buy all the toys you want. Other than work, you don't need to have a schedule.

Cons? Can't think of any.

All the cons listed apply to being lonely not necessarily single. If you feel alone get a damn social life. Why the hell would someone jump into a relationship just because they feel the need to share their success with someone. I just don't understand where that comes from. A relationship with a cool chick can be awesome but if you can't find one there's no reason why you can't enjoy dating until the right one comes along.

Pro
Guilt free casual sex with multiple partners.
Con
Sex may not be as frequent as if you weren't single

Pro
Can do what you want, when you want, no matter the cost or what some woman might think about it.
Con
This also means no one is close enough to you to care what you are doing (which for some I guess might also be a Pro).

Pro
I always seem to have more meaningful relationships with friends, and more friends of both sexes when I'm single.
Con
Don't have a MOST meaningful relationship with anyone.

Pro
It's very rare if someone is ever mad at me, and that reduces a lot of stress and drama.
Con
Sometimes a good argument can be fun (especially the making up part).

My advice if you're down luv2rite, is to embrace singlehood. Revel in your situation, and that things really aren't that bad. There are 2 sides to everything, why tear yourself apart by focusing on the bad side?Everyone wants to be in a relationship, but you just have to be patient sometimes. Better to wait for that perfect person and situation than to go through all that heartache. In the meantime HAVE FUN with your freedom!

Pro's-

Save a ton of money every month.
No nagging.
Never have to go to the mall or a stinkin' shoe store.
Can come & go as you please.
Free to get rid of extra furniture and replace it with pool table, air hockey table & other arcade games.
Free to decorate the house as I please.
No nagging.
Never have to worry about making the bed, leaving socks on the floor, etc.
No nagging.
No drama.
Did I mention no nagging?

Cons

I'll let you know when I come across one.

Pros to being single:

1. Can eat when you want, instead of when spouse makes the meal.

2. No one to harass you for eating half a container of Oreos in a day.

3. Lower taxes on your household income.

Pros to being married:

1. Meals magically appear out of nowhere.

2. Sometimes you find Oreos in your pantry when you didn't buy any Oreos.

3. Higher household income.

Being single is just a matter of frame of mind....I sense that Bob Dole has had similar experiences because I feel the same way...except for the beastiality part anyway. Some people need someone for companionship...I personally like it when everyone stays the hell away until I decide to visit them.

Really? You think its overrated? I sometimes stress over not having a girlfriend. In your situation, maybe you were just with a bad quality person? Sounds like she did something you werent pleased about, I dont blame you. Id be upset too. Maybe it was just her behaviour that you werent pleased about, sounds like you didnt want any of it, and wouldnt tolerate it anymore.

If you were with someone who behaved well enough to please you, would you still say having a girlfriend is overrated?

Good question...find a shop vise....put your testicles in it and clamp it down until it almost becomes unbearable....then open the vise...this is called "making up"...it feels so good to "make up" that you feel that you can handle the vise next time....now put them in again and close just a little tighter this time...then uncrank...you are so happy once again...it's up to you how many times you choose to stick it in the vise.

Is that all! Try this. Try marrying someone who is messier than you. This would mean you take out the trash, load and unload the dishwasher, do laundry for yourself and the other person, pick up after the other person becasue they don't pick up after themselves. These are just a few things I have to contend with. In some cases, I try to "outwait" my wife. Now you say, "what does outwait mean?" Outwait means that a certain portion of the house will stay dirty until the someone caves in and does it. Usually I can't last more than a week.

Now, I am not a lazy person. Before I got married, I lived in a very clean house, because I like clean stuff. I had no problem cleaning the kitchen, bathroom, doing the laundry, and just keeping the house neat and in order. Women like clean places, so I kept my place clean. I NEVER lived in a dirty house until I got married. Now my house is just so unorganized. In the span of two years I, by myself, reorganized EVERYTHING three times. Well, everying got out of order within a matter of weeks. I pretty much tried to keep the inside and outside of the house clean all by myself. Where's my wife? To busy sleeping and watching TV, and doing my daughters hair every now and then. Up until about a year ago, my wife only worked 2 hours a day!

Well, you can say she's taking care of the little one, which is true to a certain point. You see, I can do and have done everything she has done except doing her hair. I can't do the girls hair.

So don't complain about the little things. Thank God you have your health and sanity. Being with someone 24/7 isn't always that great. Yes, finding that one true love is awesom, but there is a down side to it and there will be times you will ask yourself,"what the hell did I get myself into?" For now, just enjoy yourself. You and a group of your girlfriends go out and paint the town red. Have fun and meet new people and don't be so quick to jump into a relationship. If I could go back and do it over again, I wouldn't get married until I was 30(I got married at 25 and I'm 28 now). I could say some more on the pros of being single, especially financially, but I'm going to quit writing now.

I will be 30 in a year. I have one girlfriend who,like me, isn't already attached.

I know there are downsides to both being single and attached. I know the downsides to being single all too well, and am ready to experience some of the downfalls of being attached.
