You Are Single: Are You Lonely?

I was having a conversation with one of my exs a while ago and i realised that people think that when they are single, they often feel lonely..well i don't think so because when you have people that care about you, apart from being your boyfriend or girlfriend, why being lonely?..

i want to know what you guys think

when you are single..are you lonely?

being single should not equal loneliness. there are many sad lonely people in relationships too. enjoy being single. most people only go through the road once.

Why should I be lonely, I never felt so,

although I aint single now but "means not much",

Being single aint loneliness!

I do believe that everyone has somebody, the only problem is that most people r not happy with the person they have.  As a result they resolve to just going through the motion unhappily or just making life dificult for the person they r with who in the other hand might be in love with them or other way round.

Does marriage really make people happy?. Don't we have people who married and actually are lonely?.  When we talk of single r we talking about not getting laid at all or have someone or two that u kick it with whenever you're Hot if u know what I mean?. I think people should find something they like doing and derive happiness from it instead of staying home depressed dreaming of some movie or soap opera relationship which never exists in real life. Good luck.

Singleness is the best period of adulthood, a time when you can explore yourself, know what you are, define your ideologies and acquire interpersonal skills. While some people spend this period destructively by indulging in destructive habits and promiscuity, others remember their creator in their youth.

Being single doesn't mean you have to be lonely, with set goals, objectives and vision you'll have more than enough things to accomplish before you get hitched. Spend this time wisely

Life as a single is challenging but not lonely if you see it as an opportunity to meet other interesting people,

know urself better and develop new skills/habits.Well as 4 me am not lonely even with my moving to a new

neighborhood away from my folks.Its cool.

Am single but not lonely, though I get bored that where my books and my phone come in and when it really bad I go home. I had this relationship where I was so lonely I had to home I was with him when I got really lonely. Being in a relationship doesnt mean u cant be lonely.

In my view,i think being single does not mean you r lonely but once u begin to brood over the fact that u r single,the feeling of loneliness definitely creeps in

In regard to the topic... sure, you can be single and not be lonely. Just like you can be married or in a relationship and feel extremely lonely.

Several years ago, I was "alone, but not lonely". It never used to bother me. Heh, now, however, is a totally different story...

well said bebee although i admit lonliness can be an issue when you're single but one can help one's self out of that feeling of lonliness. persoanlly, i think one feels lonley(continually) because they want to.There's so much to do if one looks around. The world is ours to explore, i think looking beyond that feeling and getting one's self engaed in beneficial (both to one's self and others) activities are the perfect antidote for lonliness.

I've been single for a while.

The only times i get lonely are when i see a couple in a warm embrace or holding hands and looking in love or when i watch love scenes. I usually go wishing i had someone to hold and embrace but the feeling passes almost immediately.

Apart from those moments, i'm often too busy to get lonely plus I kind of like my company sometimes.

I am single....not lonely! If anything, I'm finding joy in who I am as an individual. I'm not looking for someone to fill in the 'void' but for someone to complement me. I'm not even looking for someone. If he comes, let him come. I love myself just as I am. I don't depend on someone to love me for me to love myself....ok, let me contradict myself. Sometimes one does feel lonely. I think what makes one feel lonely is what is the bone of contention. If I feel lonely when I'm single coz all my friends are dating, then my goals need to be redefined. If I feel lonely when I'm single coz that time in my life has come when I am willing to share my life and my love with someone, then that 'would' count as a legitimate reason.
