Dear Poll: Are you Happy Being Single?


Oprah recently reported that for the first time in history, there are more single women in America than married ones, 51% to be exact. Some women love their independent lifestyle while other women are working hard at finding their future husband or life partner. The stereotype of the single woman has changed dramatically over the years, so all you women out there, how do you feel about being single? Do you enjoy playing the field and not being tied down, or do you miss the constant companionship of a lover?

Well I'm recently single and so far am enjoying it! I just got out of a nine year relationship and a week away from what would've been our 6th year wedding anniversary! Everything happens for a reason.. Don't try and make sense of it.. Take it for what it is! I definitely have learned a lot about myself and especially being in the single spotlight.. I've seen how hard it can be to find someone that is true and genuine! Finding out that some people really can't appreciate a good thing when its staring them in the face.. That goes for both sexes! All I know is that I have more to learn and a lot to gain.. I take everyday as it comes with a smile and being thankful that I have one more day to do what I want with it! So ladies or gent's.. No use over dwelling on why they didn't call or if they were really into you.. look at it like this: As one person leaves your life.. Another enters.. Sometimes not right away but if your one of the lucky ones it can happen the same day! Don't look for it.. Let it find you! And if all else fails.. Put an ad on craiglist..lol!

I love being independent and my own person. I relish not being tied down to anyone. But still, there are times when I hate sleeping alone and wish I had someone there with me. I just want to know that I can be my own person and have my own independence before I step into the land of coupledom.

I like being single, but i also like having someone to pine for. With long distance relationship, i can have the best of both worlds. :)

I'm 27 and in a pretty serious relationship. If its the right one...the days of longing to be single will disapear. I enjoyed being single very much, but don't miss it. And if this doesn't work out, I'll be happy to be almost 30, SINGLE and FABULOUS!!!!

Well, I'm single and so many of my girlfriends have had boyfriends and either gotten bored or dumped. Those who got bored had brooding exes who avoided them for days (despite the "we're still friends" thing) and those who got dumped - some resorted to cutting.I think that being taken is just so overrated. Maybe it's because I'm in a girls' school with hardly any chances to meet up with guys or whatever, but I still think it's overrated. Especially for teens. How can you say I Love You at this age? These teens haven't even gotten a career yet!

Not single now. I love my bf and I love our life together but sometimes I pine for the days where there was no one to answer to. But when I was single I would pine for someone to cuddle with ;)

Single and loving it! No boyfriend = No rules & No assholes. I couldn't imagine having to come someone to check in everynight and see what they are doing.

This culture liest o you and says to be hapy, you have to be in love. BS. I find meaning in my life and give and recieve love everyday, NOT just to ONE person- to EVERYONE. THAT is true fulfillment and real love. I couldnt ask for me!! And it selfless, not selfish-- 'member my old signature used to read:'Love is a selfish place to be in, but a selfless thing to give'Because I feel that we should give our love and ourselves to everyone, not just one person-- and therefore, not just be 'used' by one person either.Being 'single' or for me, actually celibate, is totally natural. I am completely myself and no one interferes with my energies. :)---And don't you forget it!!
