    Being single for long periods of time is only good if you're still getting at least semi-regular sex, I think. In fact, I'd argue that single but regular sex is the best of both worlds.
    Agreed.
    Other than that, the fact you can flirt around with anyone. And not worry that there is the possibility of getting just that bit too drunk and cheating on your boyfriend, which I'm horribly sure would happen to me if I was dating someone.
    And no having to over-analyse arguments/conversations/body language, which gets a bit tedious.

    The only thing I can think of is being free to flirt, kiss, and shag whoever you want.

    All of the "good" things mention so far I could either do in a relationship or don't apply to me.

    I wouldn't have sex outside of a relationship. Not because of morals, but because no-strings sex is ****.

    Being single's great, as long as you're getting it or at least getting some form of attention from the opposite sex.

    When, however, you go into a complete drought of ANYTHING to do with the female species, for a fair few months, then it gets pretty rubbish.

    And when I say a drought of anything, I mean, pretty much zero interest from the laydees. Very demoralising.

    You don't have to put up with a womens never ending **** storm?
    Honestly its so ******* great not having to listen to a bat **** girl who needs me to sort out every-*******-issue.

    I have no idea why any guy under the age of 25 has a 'serious relationship'. You're not going to marry the *****, you aint going to spend the rest of your life with the ***** - So why the **** do you waste the best time of your life with some *****? (I know its mainly ugly/insecure guys who do because they need reassurance/a place to get sex as they cant get it like every other guy)

    I love being single, there is not one single thing i could get from a relationship i cannot get from being single. Only ****** ass beta pussy guys say 'i do it for the love' or any of that ****.

    Being single is awesome!
    -Don't have to be obsessed about why the other person isn't texting you back.
    -You can go out with your friends whenever you want.
    -Your boyfriend/girlfriend doesn't take up huge amounts of your life.
    -You don't have a person putting pressure on you to quit bad habits you secretly enjoy.
    -No crying over arguements.
    -And you gain confidence knowing that you can be on your own and deal with it!

    I have been single for a week now (after a 2 year relationship...) and I'm starting to feel a bit more optimistic about not being in a relationship now...

    - You don't have to suffer him turning into a slobbering wreck whenever Britney Spears/Miley Cyrus/Lily Allen/whoever comes on the tv :rolleyes:
    - You can look. And flirt. And touch, if you want.
    - You don't have to forever think about someone's feelings - you can do what you want, when you want
    - You don't have to go and see bands you don't like with him... :ninja:
    It would seem that I have been too kind with my previous girlfriends as I have caused none of these problems. I may be guilty of taking up huge amounts of my exes' lives but I'm sure they didn't mind
