when you re with someone you don t know how long it s going to be for ,marriage is nothing if it is not on a spiritual level.whn it s over it s over.whether i am single or not does it mean i sacrifice anything in the name of comitmment.i still have my own things.like do you really have to sleep everynight with your partner,sometimes i feel like sleeping alone.
today marriage is mostly about money so everybody ties the knot gets entangled and eventhough they don t want to be together anymore they still are cause they tied themselves to each other,it s a marriage reversed.

Hi Burt, thanks for stopping by and sharing with us. Like you and Connie, Sylvester and myself are not married and do not plan to. Have nothing against being married, once was, but right now, don't see it in my life.

She is my fianc´┐Że but we shall never make it legal.

We have rings and wear them out in public.

We have separate bank accounts but property together JTWORS.

We need to get a civil union but have HIPPA rights now.

If you live with someone and have an intimate relationship then in my opinion you are not available. If you want to be single and do your own thing then the person you are living with is a roommate, and nothing more. You can always live on your own for that kind of thing. If you share a life together with someone there is an element of commitment there, so no dating outside the relationship, but you still should maintain your individuality concerning assets and bank accounts.

Then again there are always the open relationships out there too where anything goes, but that to me is a type of relationship that won't last anyway.

I think that as long as you are not married, you are considered single. However, if you are in fact in a committed relationship, then the ''rules'' of being in that coupling should be discussed by both parties involved. I think that both people should be on the same page when it comes to what being ''single'' means. It's only fair to both involved.

You are not single, you are in a relationship. And it's not fair to say you are single to potential dates because you do have a boyfriend. I myself consider it a lie when somebody is with someone but tells he or she is single just to hook me. If you have a boyfriend and live with him, you are not single. You might be looking for somebody better but you are not available in fact till you are with your boyfriend.

To Angela,

Divorced 40 years ago .Had relationships(staying together)maximum

8 years all together.Have been single 5 1/2 years now.

So living alone for me is fantastic.Retired one year ago.

Do not have enough time in my days to do what I let life lead me to.

I am not saying no to a relashionship,but being a buddhist,

the only relation I am intitled to is with a woman that is also

living a spiritual path.

Finally since you are reponsable for the Single section,I beleive

an Agora section would be great,where one could just share ,what
is going on in his/her life and such.

Since you are single and a lot of people are ,I wonder ,if this

could be suggested to whomever decides these things.
With friendliness
