I've been single for many years, and without a SO for 3. I really love being single and never want to have a man living with me again! It was a tricky thing keeping my sweetie happy but not letting him move in, which he wanted to do very much. But I always knew that if he lived with me we would soon get on each other's nerves and come to a parting of the ways. We had 17 happy years until he died 3 years ago and I miss him every day, but have no desire to go looking for a replacement. He was one-of-a-kind!
I LIKE being alone, I LIKE waking up when I feel like it , eating whatever I want whenever I want to. I really like not having to clean up after someone else...been there, done that TOO much! I love travelling alone and I do a lot of it; I can start out as early as I like, stop to see whatever I want to, and never having to watch what I say or do to satisfy someone else.
Some of us are just meant to live alone, I guess!
