    So true, so true. It hurts so much when you have a broken mind.




    The winter is the darkest and coldest season of the year. That seems to be normal. Me for instance miss it to get hugged sometimes.
    Hug-buds for the winter? :hugs:

    -Lonely af and I hate having the whole bed to myself.

    That is really a nice gesture of your own. Very kind of you. But nothing is better than a real hug. Sorry, I know that you had a good intention.

    pro - not having to make joint decisions, i hate that the most. wanna go somewhere but gotta see if the other half wants to go there too. same applies when going out with friends really
    -not having to make changes/adjustments to ones life, especially if the two of you aren't on the same wavelength. like if one wanted kids and the other didn't or one wanted to move and the other didn't. i don't like change, especially if i have to do it for someone else

    con - like you said, the main one for me is an empty bed. even if we didn't have sex, would just be nice to cuddle up to someone

    Haven't got to worry about buying V-Day gifts, anniversary gifts, etc. Free to not care about anything. No pressure to constantly be with a person all day every day. However, no cuddles or "how was your day" texts.

    Why is no sex a con? You can have sex even if you're single.
    If it were that easy to find someone to have sex with, the porn industry wouldn't exist.

    I genuinely can't think of a con. I love having my own personal space, and I would absolutely hate to share a bedroom, let alone the bed itself.

    Not even some plush toys in your bed? But I understand you. I personally need a bed for myself alone to have my personal space when I am sleeping.

    If I'm sleeping in a large double, I can stick the toys somewhere on the far end where I can ignore them. Small doulbe/single bed, they don't even have a place. Duvet, pillows and blankets only!

    I insist on the right of being able to fart in my own bed without judgement.

    Plus, if I want to be social, I'll leave the house. Otherwise I am a very private person

    Same here! need a large double bed to stick the toys on the far end, need the place in a double large bed to feel 'free'.

    Cons: More broken stuff in the home due to smashing things up from the frustration of feeling jealous that even your own brother has a well established relationship with someone.

    Tsr is depressing.

    Why are there so many terrible, petty excuses being made to justify being single when clearly folks don't want to. Far enough if you are asexual (which is still a shame mind you... sex is so much fun... but w/e) though.

    +1 the girl on the first page who pointed out, rather correctly, that you can get ample sex when single. Depending on your career maybe more (you get a lot of sex doing security work).
