Singlehood is a familiar landscape, with countless paths leading to this state. Some wander here simply because they haven’t yet stumbled upon the right companion. Others cultivate their careers or knowledge, prioritizing self-growth over shared moments. Still, some choose this path deliberately, savoring the independence and solitude that single life offers.

A user asked the forum, “What’s the primary reason you’re still single?”. Here are some responses he got!

“Trust issues, terrified of commitment, in love with someone I can’t be with.
