There seems to be a particular pattern-I meet a girl, she likes me, she turns out to be selfish and verbally abusive. And many times its happened. Should I seek a specific therapist?

Part of that is due to desperation. There are other people out there. As a woman who has been single for years, I understand the idea of just jumping in with the first available or in some cases, unavailable person who likes us.

Why Am I Still Single? 8 Reasons People Often Stay Single

Society no longer places emphasis on marriage, yet human nature is burning for partnerships. Take what you can get within reason, and accept it. I wish the majority would think more like you. It would also cut mental illness in half if people were less pressured to get in to relationships.

This list is awful and vindictive. There is always an underlying reason. In my culture in an European country , families take care of each other even when married or in a relationship. If a man does not understand that, then there would be no men. My point- there ARE men out there who would be understanding enough that you care for your sick parent, and may love and appreciate you even more for doing so.

It could mean your job will still be there and probably even better performed when you have someone there who gives you much needed support. Not a single one. Being devoted to God also means submitting to him and his teachings. But no— having a loving relationship means loving, but weird. If people think that about you, perhaps they need to read the advice columns here. There are a lot of people who stay single for religious choices.

Dating for 8 years, still no proposal

There are a lot who stay single for personal choices that are valid. I function on the job and I come home to my pets and my life. I spend time on occasion with friends and acquaintances, but not romantic ones. I also fear that if I date again I might slide back into that terrible unfulfilling life I had when I was younger, the one where I spent all of my energy on romantic love and none of it on my family and my career and myself.

I know that if you are open to it, it will happen for you. I can share with you the steps I did to make it happen. Can you share the steps you took with me? I have heard that things happen when we are not looking. How can a person want something but yet not be looking? Because no men are interested in women my age 50s. Definitely all by their 40s. Men were not interested in me even when I was in my 20s. It has taken me 30 some years to get to be ok with my station in life.

Life dealt me these cards. I am ok finally with my lot. They are not saying that there are not people that do stay single for their religion…. What about a child? Single parents often find themselves very isolated…. And not every potential partner understands the demands of a single parent or a person who is a carer for an aging parent or perhaps disabled sibling or even a disabled spouse. Life can be very complicated. One of the reasons to go to college is so you can get a job that pays well enough to supply your food and shelter needs. Some people without an education have to work multiple jobs to barely scrape by.

This leaves them exhausted and lacking time to nurture a relationship as well.

I lived 14 years away from my mum and when circumstances forced me to go back and look after I intended it would be for about 2 years however circumstances for varies reasons made feel obliged to stay.

I certainly did not want to! Also my parents divorced when I was My father remarried and divorced again my brother married a divorcee and divorced. My best female friend at the moment is my dog. Yet at the end of the day your furry canine friend is the most well-behaved and loyal being on the planet. My ex was obsessed with her dog. She liked dogs more then people it was a major scapegoat she used to keep herself from dealing with reality and facing problems. Hi Al, I think a decent and kind woman would be fine with it, especially if she likes her own space.

I did not know all this about myself but it makes so much sense, and I feel empowered with the knowledge. I need part II.
