    Does anyone know people who are old and who are happily single?

    i guess because growing up, it seems 'normal' to get married and pop out babies, so thats whats planted in my head.

    Girls....

    Can't live with them, can't live with out them

    im 24 btw.

    I got one girl who wants to marry me and have my babies, another girl who i just broke it off with the other day after 6 months.

    Every time they just shit me & bore me and i move on.
    I can never return the feelings as they have for me.

    and in terms of finding 'the one'

    there is so many women and men that people would be happy with, it just depends who you get to know, where you work and who you meet. I've dated some great girls who are rather devoted to me but i never give them the respect and devotion they deserve.

    :dunno:

    i have a huge problem with girls boring me as well. i can never stick with a girl, and that's not because either of us are unfaithful.

    i love being single :dunno:

    Besides the fact that my mom was married for over 20+ years.. she enjoys every minute of being single and says she'll never get in a relationship anytime soon.

    I've seen so many relationships fail that it makes me sad.. my parents, both sisters, and my brother. Marriage is pointless :wtc:

    [edit] I actually just got home from a wedding :hs:

    I require sex and companionship.. thats where things get messy. But i only want to see someone maybe twice a week.. and things always end up getting to involved.

    Even if i tell girls.. 'Hey im a man whore, i will date you and dump you.. i won't be able to return the feelings towards you'

    That doesn't work.

    My boyfriend was a man whore til he met me. :o

    Takes the right person to make someone actually want to settle down.

    I'm wondering about that. Perhaps a combination of a AWESOME girl & myself becoming more mature and actually wanting to settle down.

    Old and unhappily single. The fact is, it always ends up remarkably badly...so I took the lesser of two evils.

    I don't think anyone wants to die in a house alone, but at 24 it's a bit too early to be worrying much about it.

    hugh hefner.

    a few gay guys.

    that's it for old people i know of who are old, single, and happy.

    then again, a lot of married people aren't "happy" either.

    He's not single. He's had plenty of kids and wives, and one currently ;). With another itching to be his wife.

    I have a friend who is older and single. He was married once, divorced 10+ years ago and has just dated around ever since. I think he's generally pretty happy. He can do his own thing when he wants. If he wants companionship, he has no trouble getting dates, has lots of friends, lots of things going on.

    I don't really know anyone who is old, single, and happy about it. Most really want a s/o, companionship, relationship, etc...

    However, that rolls the other way too. I know a lot more people who are old and married/together and are miserable.

    Don't put pressure on yourself, just wait for the right girl that you can see yourself waking up next to everyday and being ok with that.

    I don't know about that.... I know plenty of married people who are bloody miserable. They seem to outnumber the sourpusses that are single.

    I'm old 41, single and I'm ecstatic right now. I just bought a brand new Harley Davidson and didn't have to ask anyone for permission nor did I have to consider their wants or anything.

    I'm generally happy also. Sure there are lonely times but you know what, there are plenty of lonely times when I've been in relationships also so go figure.

    My mother is almost 60 and she's single and relatively happy. :dunno: I think she would probably prefer to have a man to share her life with, but she's done needing them. Then again, she has had her fair share of husbands/lovers and it seems like she's spent a lifetime basing her self worth on her relationships only to end up getting her heart broken...so as she says, she's finished "fishing" and if one falls in her lap, great, if not, she has other things to live for.

    no, but i know several couples who have been dating for 10-15 years, and are happy with that.

    it's not boolean.
