What Does Being "single" Mean?

Is there a such thing as being "Single" ?

Does it mean No bf/hubby, No sex, No nothing

Or Not being in a commited r/s but still sexually active?

It means you are not beholding to anybody or in any relationship. You can have friends,have sex yet you are not in any plan to stay with a partner.

Being single means you're not cheating on anybody when you engage in sexual relations with different people.

Means you've got nobody to cheat on.

Means you don't have anybody to nag you.

But it also means you've got nobody to cuddle with.

It means you've got nobody to come home to.

It means you've got nobody to miss.

Unmarried or Ex-Married Man or Woman

Those women who bear Ms are the Ex-Married women.

Ms also applies to OverDue But Not Married.

They are all single.

When you fill a form online what do they ask about your status? Single, married, divorced or widow? When someone talks to you, like an old friend, what do they ask about your status? They'd say "Are you married?" What will your most direct response be? "No, I'm not," or "Yes, I am,". In view of this, in my own eyes, I'm single because I'm yet to marry. When I have a girlfriend, I'm still single. OK, what do you say when a guy has two girlfriends? He's double?

When filing official document, and you are asked to tick ' single' or married, they are asking if you are married or not or divorced. So if you are not married and you are divorced that means that you are single.

single means beef urself up, add quality to ur status, be it physically ,spiritually academically and financially. its jus like dis i go to the market to buy a wrapper from many oda wrappers i would pick the one i picked becos it appealed to me, wat appealed to me? it could be the colour, the texture, d fabric, the style and sometimes somebody suggested it and said it looked fine on me and i trusted the person and went on wit it. why would the person suggest to me? sometin about that wrapper appealed to him, and why did i trust the person becos i believed there was sometin he saw that i didnt. i hope u undastand this. single is u learning more and upgradin yourself.

some people automatically mix love with sex but this is 2 very different things and should be just that.

romantic love is the emotional and spiritual side of being attracted to someone while sexual desire is the physical part of it.

you may not love a person but if a man is playing with your toto the right way, you will have sexual desires(in love or not)

also you could be in love with someone and have absolutely no sexual desire for them.

the toto isnt fully controlled by the brain, it has a mind of its own and therefore play with different rules. if you get excited and the toto decides that it needs some company then whatever your brain decides, you will have to get this toto some damn company. either it be with a Love Machine, your fingers or have a cold shower to try a put that demon to rest.

yes it is perfectly normal for a woman in love to have sex with her bf/spouse but there is absolutely nothing wrong if a woman has sex with someone she has absolutely no care for. its about having someone take care of the fire that is between her legs. some women's fire is so light that they can wait until a man they care/love comes along but others dont want to wait and have to get that "magic stick" and still call themselves SINGLE.

Seems like the guys r confirming wt i heard that when a guy says he is "single" he doesnt mean he is inactive.

well its qiute easy for a guy to sleep with a babe with no attachement.

but most cases i have cometo realise that the girls actually have some level of feeling for the guy,

or its monetary concern.

either way, ladies dont gointo something without some level of benefit.

emotional or optherwise.

Agree with you. I'm also trying to understand that aspect. I've got to have some kind or atom of emotions towards a man before I could sleep with him willingly of course if it's not molest but I guess people are different.

@ Debosky, I don't agree you don't have to be married not to be tagged as being single. Once you are in a committed relationship, you are not single during that period.

@sexybabes,

being in an open relationship still means ur heart has to be involved.

but when u have sex partners, sometimes its directly saying look its just for the fun and dats it.

but the question of a constant sex partner now comes in.

to me its no longer a case of being single, cos the aim of heart involvemnt has been defeated.

well it all depends on what people are looking for in life.i guess you are different and there is nothing wrong with that. not all women wants to go through the troubles and hustles of relationships. also some women havent met the right guy to date and would rather have lovers/booty calls/fwb than to invest their time and energy on some guy that wasnt what they were looking for.

should they sexually starve themselves because they havent found the right guy yet? should they stop being sexually satisfied just because they havent found the right BF yet?

I say to each their own

being in an open relationship means that you do all the things couples do just without the commitment. a fwb/booty call is there only for sexual gratification and should know that this is what it is. if we only have sex then we definitely are NOT in an open relationship. you should always let a person know what "deal" you are into so that they dont mistakingly think that there is some relationship going on. some women can see some bedroom acrobatics as a declaration of love so better put them at their place very early one and TELL THEM.

Guyz why not say you in an open r/s.

BTW do the sex partners know that they are just sex partners or they think they are in a r/s with you?

to me its simply being not in a r/s but yes can have sex partners.

being single in my book means that there is nobody important to whom i have to answer to. so all the lovers/booty calls wouldnt count.

having some bed mates that you dont answer to is like being single just without the sex starvation and the occasional outing.

This other guy said being single to him means he is not in a commited r/s but he does have sex partners.

And I realise that most people will say they are single but not really single.
