    Does anyone else think this is a strange thing to ask someone? I've been asked why I don't have a girlfriend a couple of times already this year, and I never really know what to say in response. It's as if, in many people's eyes, being in a relationship should be the default for human beings, and if you aren't in one you should have a reason or excuse for yourself.

    I'm comfortable being single, but I can't help going on the defensive when somebody asks me why I am, even though I know sometimes it's said almost as a compliment. Does anyone else feel like this?
    I feel this way too.But all I can assume is that these answer seeking people want to know what makes us strong enough to stay single.From what I have witnessed,people usually get into a relationship because they think they need to be in one and not because they want to.

    Because i want to be 100% comfortable in my own skin first before i meet someone because only then will i be truly happy and able to share my love generously with the person. I know i can get any guy i want but my insecurities are whats stopping me. I dont want to be one of those girls yhas constantly needing reassurance that their man loves them due to lack of self love.

    Dog ugly, out of shape, no self confidence, shy around new people, few friends, inexperienced, plenty of people out there better than me.

    Pick one.
    There will ALWAYS be someone better and someone worse off no matter who you are. Be happy with yourself

    I'm not good enough for anyone. I've been told I'm too fat ( although my dr says the opposite) and that I need plastic surgery to fix myself

    Because I imagine being multiple is far too much work.

    Don't really have the time to commit to someone, and I'm quite apprehensive as I've never opted to be in a relationship.

    Being in a relationship is hard work. Breakups, cheating, immaturity.



    just kidding, I'm an insociable nerd

    Rubbish! One day, someone will consider themselves the luckiest person in the world to have you. You don't need plastic surgery either, by all means do it if you want to, but don't let anyone pressure you into believing that you're not beautiful just as you are.

    Don't use your unideal face as an excuse. There are little people and amputees and morbidly obese people with halitosis and unibrows who are happily involved.
