Single And Happy

It's tempting to fall in love but I refuse. I know it will just end in pain like all relationships do. Either that or I'll be cheated on. We're not a monogamous species. I choose to be single because it's not worth investing in relationships.

{@organicnudist] oh i think that is rather a pessimistic outlook . there are a lot of relationships that work but if that is your feeling on the subject i respect your view

[@3749,smiler2012] It just seems so hopeless when 80% of relationships end in the first year and 25% of people have cheated. I even question if long lasting marriages are really happy. Infidelity is rampant and when the love in a marriage fades, what do you do? Do people just stay together for the children, and when their children have grown up, do they just stay together because they're too old to start again?

I don't blame you for the way you feel. Sometimes it's better to guard your heart than let it get ripped by someone.

I was married for 28 years But the marriage fell apart once my children were adults and finish their studies. We did have many happy years but we grew apart

[@1205258,SydneyGuy] Do you regret it now when you look back?
SydneyGuy · 61-69, M
[@1212182,OrganicNudist] I regret not working harder on the marriage to develop more shared interests so we would still be together. A relationship requires commitment and caring just like looking after a garden. My daughters are now 28 and 30
