Is it strange that I don't want to be in a relationship at all ?

  1. Recently I have no desire to be in a relationship or date anyone; I just want to be single and I actually am enjoying it . A few years ago I was so desperate to be in a relationship that I even scared some folks that liked me at first , but now I could careless . I find it strange that I changed this fast , I think maybe it's because I'm focusing on getting into nursing school or maybe it's because I'm older now. I'm not entirely sure . Have any of you felt the same way that you don't care if you meet anyone or not ,and that you like being single ?.

    Oh, hay-ell, yes! Sometimes you're just focused elsewhere, nothing wrong with that. And what with all that's coming up (nsg school) who needs the drama, good or bad, of a relationship?
    You're fine, don't worry about it. It IS quite pleasant being single and not accountable to anyone.

    Not at all. Not everyone is cut out to be in a relationship. I chose that lifestyle after I got so burned from being married to a mentally ill man in denial, I remained single after our divorce. He has been dead a long time now, and I'm a senior citizen who is still very happy living single, & I have numerous friends.

    I stayed single for (most of) nursing school. Looking back, I'm glad that happened to me. Having support is great, but a relationship also comes with its own challenges and nursing school is a challenge in and of itself. I feel you. There were times when I was really happy--and there are times now when I recognize the difference between being single and tied down. I'm in an interesting place of just 'talking' to someone right now. It's what it is. I know that I needed time to get my life together, and I can't critique anybody else or invalidate any feelings here, but it worked decently for me. I got my degree and now I feel like I have infinite time to navigate everything else. Good for you, OP.

    Absolutely not! Sometimes it's best to be by yourself. I'd rather be single and peacefully happy than in a miserable relationship. Many don't understand you can be in a relationship and still feel single or lonely if the person isn't satisfying your needs. Do what you need to do to find your inner peace and happiness and forget the rest. Unless, you have a family like mine who feels like everybody should be married despite most of them cheating on their spouses but that's for another thread in itself.
