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!
HAPPY WITH MY MEMORIES
“I’m 63 and single because the only woman I have loved passed away after 33 years of marriage. Apart from the obvious reason I am happy with my memories, thank you.”
“Trust issues, terrified of commitment, in love with someone I can’t be with.
I long for an intimate relationship with a stable partner, but I can get into ill-defined pseudo-relationships with an easy out.
Plus, I’ve been functionally single for long enough now that I’m used to having my own space/time.”
“I have unlimited peace.”
“I’m so depressed. I’m afraid to bring in another person with me.”
HAPPY IN MY OWN COMPANY
“Because I want to be. I’m happy in my own company and find socializing mentally exhausting.”
NEWLY SINGLE AFTER 18 YEARS
“I’m recently single after almost 18 years of marriage and that is why I will stay that way.”
I AM CHILDISH
“I’m childish. I work, go home, and play video games all day.”
WORK IN GRAVEYARD
“I work in a graveyard, so fewer chances to interact. I’m not a standout in looks or stuff. I’m boring and plain at initial contact, but I don’t share interests with my age cohort. I also had a high strikeout ratio when I was younger, affecting my confidence in approaching. Don’t use online apps.”
“I’m too lazy socializing or installing dating apps, I think.”
FOCUSING ON MY GOALS FIRST
“Not looking for a relationship until I’ve reached the goals I’m working towards that are more important to me now.”
“Poor social skills mainly.”
“I need peace. I was in the most toxic relationship for years and finally ended it a few months ago, and it’s been great.”
LIKE MY OWN SPACE
“I like my space so much that I’d have to be pretty much in love with you to appreciate your presence constantly. It’s a sound mechanism, and I haven’t been hurt for years, but solitaire has a shelf life.”
NEVER APPROACHED A WOMEN
“How should I know that? I have never approached a woman.”
LACK OF DESIRE
“I like being alone and simply lack the desire to be in a relationship.”
“My age. Being disabled. Lack of single guys in my area. Mostly, it’s the disability.”
