    I am not currently in a relationship, I quite like the independence that comes from being single. You don't have to dress up or look pretty all the time and you certainly don't feel obliged to cook them meals either
    Either you've had some weird, incredibly expectant partners, or my girlfriend's weird for not doing any of that, or I'm weird for not expecting her to do any of that.

    The independence is what I miss the most about being single.

    Yeah, coming up to 3 years. I love being with her, but I miss having space and being able to make decisions about my life without the worry of it impacting someone else.
    I understand that - sometimes I wish to just play on my PS4 and not have to worry about texting anyone and just chill, but normally she's okay about that!

    I'm 5"10 have, no social skills, am ugly, have spots and have mental illnesses x 3
    But that's because you're awesome!
    Nah, people have told me to my face I'll never get a girlfriend. Can't be all me.
    Just ignore all the idiots, you'll get someone, don't worry. Stop putting yourself down so much. Relationships aren't all that anyway. Better to be single than be in a bad relationship that isn't suited for you, (it's backed up by science)

    I'm guessing you edited your post before I could reply, but my reason for missing the independence is the same reason you have for enjoying it. I miss being responsible solely for myself.

    I mean, she's inherently responsible for herself in the same way that I am for myself, but not being able to immediately tell people that I'll chill out with them when they ask me because I've got to ask her about it first (my girlfriend's tricky, and it's not her fault; social anxiety is a god damn minefield within which she doesn't like being apart from me but doesn't like attending social events with me, which makes for rather... complex discussions on the matter of my being social) totally sucks.

    Recently out of a relationship. Lost my sense of who I am. Got depressed. Wasn't worth it in the end lel. Prefer being independent and worrying about my self tbh.

    I did, because I realised my question was a stupid question to ask and I didn't read your post properly first time

    It sucks when your partner wants to know everything about you and where you're going aswell, it's just nice to be able to do anything you want whenever you want, isn't it? I do sometimes get lonely but 90% of the time I'm content
