I used to think that there was someone for everyone but after so many failed attempts at flying I'm beginning to think this might not be the case.
But then i got to thinking maybe this isn't so bad. what's so bad about being single your whole life?
lol yes they might

Some people might say you have a dark attitude,
yea i believe it!
but after what I"ve been through in my life -- keeping in mind I'm rapidly approaching 43 -- there are MUCH worse things than being single.
I don't believe there are such things as "soul mates" and "the right person" for most people. I think there are people you can get along with for a while, and people you can't. The lucky ones are the ones that find someone they can love for a lifetime, but looking at the divorce rate I'd say those ones are very rare, and those relationships take a whole lotta work to fly. Not to mention a lot of the oldtimers like my grandparents, had abusive undertones, and the relationships weren't exactly equal.
Just enjoy life as it comes at you, is my advice. Enjoy the company of whoever comes along but don't make a federal case out of every person you spend a little time with and definitely don't go out deliberately trying to find a long-term relationship.
If you find Ms. Right, great! If you don't, there's always Ms. Right Now.
And sometimes it's nice to just sit around in your underwear drinking from the carton and watching Jackass with five months' worth of dust bunnies under the sofa and fridge food so moldy it qualifies as a pharmaceutical company.

Well, as someone who is currently single and have been for about four years now, I have to say that the thought of dying alone is terrifying to me. What I mean is that the thought of me passing and no one there to hold my hand while I pass over is really scary to me.
I have to honestly say that the single life is not at all what some want to crack it up to be. It is lonesome and, at least to me, somewhat sorrowful.
im not so much worried about it as i am interested or curious about it

i hope so..[quote[Some people find each other in their teens, and others much later in life.I do believe there is someone for everyone, it just takes some of us longer than others.
It will be the most wonderful thing when you do.
