    nothing special for me:
    pros (being single)-
    - save money

    cons-
    -no one to say your honest feelings to (or in my case, talk about how my A levels are going down the drain .-.) My friends just think i moan all the time so i literally have no one to talk to :l
    -one less close friend.

    (there are probs millions more but ive never had a girlfriend and pretty much never will so ill never know the pros or cons of being in a relationship)
    You have stuff like counselling and a psychiatrist for that so it's not actually a con. And dw you'll find someone

    The only con is the lack of regular guaranteed sex.

    There is nothing else a relationship really gives you
    a relationship gives you at more than that i think its not all about the sex is it?

    Thats true- i used to get complained at for training for too long at basketball! :rolleyes:

    hahaha how is dating a pain :holmes:

    i agree with the last con though :cry2:
    I train wednesday, saturday and sunday all day and any other time is spent at the gym or doing uni work or procrastinating.

    I say dating is a pain because recently, the girls I've been involved with made it so. I guess when I've found the right person, it will be effortless and an absolute joy

    Once you get older there's the possibility of getting married, procreating and getting various tax incentives.

    But at my age (20) then yes, regular sex is the only advantage I found to having a relationship.

    Care and affection mean nothing to me.

    And on the flip side, I found having to pretend to care about someone else's problems and comforting them a bit tedious.

    Perhaps emotional maturity will come with time, but it certainly hasn't set in yet.

    Go on then- Tell me , you single pringles?

    What are the pros and cons of being single? :hmmm:

    here are mine

    Pros
    - One less friend or companion means one less person to have disagreements wi th. No arguing-No stress
    - Partying is alot more fun- if you know what i mean :sexface:
    - You a have a WHOLE bed to yourself.... i repeat A WHOLE FLUFFFY AND EVER SO COMFY BED!!!!
    - You save so much money! (which you can then go and spend on food {which you dont have to share- squirrel shares food with NO ONE!})
    - You relalise you dont need anyone to have fun and live!
    - You become independant!
    - You can do whatever you want without a worry in the world!!!!

    Cons
    - You dont have a 'go to' person who you could talk to
    - You dont get cuddles
    - You feel lonely- especially when you see other couples around
    - You're friends = questioning your love life and wont stop sending you memes about being lonely (this happens to me :cry2: )




    Whats your say? :hmmm:
    The cons are what you have friends for so really there are no cons.
    edit - the last one doesn't happen to me, we mock our friends for having girlfriends lol
