Just found this site and want to add my 2 cents. I love being single. There is no one expecting me to clean, do laundry, cook etc while they surf the tv. I spend or save my own money and no one to tell me I can't afford to do something while they spend money at the race track. If I don't feel like cooking I can order out, or eat out reasonably without someone ordering like we're Rockefellers. The only time I miss haveing someone around is when I'm really down and need a hug. Sometimes my kitties provide comfort but sometimes they don't. For me being single is the best for me right now.
