*laughs* six months isn't that long. Some of us may have never had a gf/bf. So that means no physical or emotional affection and the fact that your friends would tease you about it if they knew. On a brigher note that could mean err... this person doesn't know what he's missing so it may not be as bad.
Anyways, congrats, go you, maybe there's hope out there for the rest of us...

Yeah, but chances are, those that haven't are still fairly young (teenagers, most likely). Try being 24 and not having been out on a date for 3 years. Eventually you give up wondering what exactly is wrong with you, and become reclusive, bitter, and confrontational.

Then you start to stalk high school cheerleaders, kidnap them, kill them, and violate them in every orifice except the correct one.

Er, ignore that last paragraph [evil] .

Yep, that was me. Was basically girlfriendless until I was at least 21. Apart from which, lets just say that no kittens around me were in danger until I was no longer girlfriendless. Talk about a walking, talking ball of frustration. Don't try this at home, kids.

Hmm... interesting. We don't really have cheerleaders here in Australia so that wouldn't work too well. BTW would you violate them before or after you killed them... wait I don't think I want to know...

But, you are forgetting the most important part of singledom--there is nothing wrong with you. It's natural to question whether there was something you did to make a relationship go awry, or what is it about you that members of the opposite sex flee from, but really, it's not you. That's a hard thing to believe in--especially when you date people that *tell* you that you're to blame on a daily basis (sorry, projecting!)--but once you realize it's not your fault, stalking and killing cheerleaders no longer becomes necessary.

I too have and still worship at the altar of bitterness, but I have to believe something good comes of all this. If anything, slurpy, I'll be happy to commiserate with you.

She's right, Slurpy. Having been told "It's your fault we're splitting up, you've brought this on yourself" by my wife, those words echoed in my head for days. In fact, they still do. Presuming we end up divorcing (fairly safe presumption, unfortunately), then at some stage I'll have to consider whether I'll start dating again.

Unfortunately, I remember when I was looking for someone all too well. I had my own little version of Heisenberg going, where I would act totally differently around anyone I liked, which would drive them away. Apart from my general cluelessness around potential females that has been well established in other threads.

So what's my point? I'm not sure myself. I know I'm not looking forward to the possibility of being single again, and even if I were to look, I hold very little hope of finding anyone else. But to blame oneself, and dwell on that blame is destructive, so I'd recommend avoiding that trap (remembered my point after all!).

Single is not a bad state to be in. I broke up with my most recent boyfriend back in January. (Not to imply that I dumped him or anything, it was more a mutual decision. Except now he wants to undo it, and as a result refuses to acknowledge it, and there was a rather bitter exchange when I told him that my mom had wanted me to make sure to tell him that even though we had split up, he was still welcome at family events and that sort of thing, and he wanted to know when exactly I had "announced" this to my mother, even though we split up in January and I'm not a huge believer in publicly announcing my entire personal life to everyone I know in some kind of running commentary, but I didn't realize that this was a state secret and my parents weren't on the need-to-know list, and anyway, he's mad at me and sulking because I told my mom we had split up and he thought if he ignored it that I would come to my senses and we could go back to being comfortably miserable. But I digress.)

Anyway, my point is, single has definite advantages. You can watch the movies you like. You don't have to make a choice between hanging around wasting hours being bored when you want to be doing something productive or the "why don't you want to spend time with me?" guilt trip. You can eat pizza in bed with your laptop and no one complains. And you can get it with whatever toppings you want (the pizza.) You can just get up and go to the store, or the post office, or to get a cup of coffee without having to tell anyone you are going somewhere.

It's truly not possible to describe the freedom. At first it's a bit scary, and if you've never had it, you might not know what to make of it. But you will get used to it. Honestly, I really didn't even want to get into this past relationship. I really hate and detest them in general. I knew I didn't want it, but I was sucked into the "everyone wants relationships, so I should try this again" mindset.

There are down sides. In the beginning, stuff like having the whole bed to yourself, and just the presence of that other person being gone. No more them forgetting to put their toothbrush in the holder. Only one coffee cup in the sink. But that passes. But that's missing a person, not the situation really. I can only think of one time I really missed having someone. I got home, after working late, and walked into a cold, dark, empty apartment. And for a minute, I wished I had someone to come home to. Not anyone in specific, just someone. So I put on some music, and lit a couple candles, took a hot shower, and by the time I was in my pajamas with a cup of tea, it didn't seem so empty anymore.

I guess that was a lot of rambling. But I was trying to say, it's really not so bad. It's a fantastic opportunity to really get to know yourself. Don't worry about looking for and finding someone. If someone comes along, that's great. If they don't, you will be just fine alone. Remember, lonely and alone are not the same thing at all. It's possible to be far lonelier laying in bed with someone right next to you than it is simply being by yourself.

Being single ain't so bad. I admit, I hated it when I was in HS, but in the ~ 2 years between the end of a really shitty relationship and the beginning of my current one I didn't date anyone, and didn't really care. I found it very liberating - I suddenly had more free time to indulge in activities I'd had to forgo to take care of my ex, and if I wanted to go and do something, or hang out with other friends, I didn't have a coordination game to play or guilt trip awaiting me after I'd had my fun. I also didn't have to feel guilty about the time I spent studying or working or volunteering. I didn't have the stress of helping someone else through a bad day, or the guilt trip being laid on for doing well in a class where he was failing, or deal with snide jealous comments when I (gasp!!) waved and said hi to a male friend he didn't know. I had the freedom of just being me, and that's a wonderful thing, though it may sound a bit selfish. However, if you can't be yourself, who can you be? There were times when I missed the physical contact parts of a relationship (and there are times now when I miss that...LDRs aren't easy) but I think I really grew as a person in those years.
