^What the thread title says. It's manageable to be happy after a breakup or while young and single, but could you go your entire life never having experienced love and still be happy?
Quote by Ian_the_fox
You're not girly enough of a boy for me, and you're not man enough to take the top. So like, sorry bitch but you ain't mine! Sorry.

no, I don't think you can be. A lot of people like to pretend that they're perfectly happy being single, but I think deep down everybody needs love and affection that goes beyond fuck-buddies and one-night stands.

Some people can. Happiness is a warm gun in reality.

As long as you have friends you can be happy.

Happy? Yes.

Happiest? No.

what's the point in being "philiosophical"?

Interesting question...

Before my last relationship I was very happy single, and had no real desire to be in a relationship at all.
Then I started seeing this girl because she was so into me. I was with her for nearly a year. Now that we broke up I am not happy being single at all.

So yes, I think you can be. Because you don't know what your missing

Yes. Different strokes for different folks. Being single forever would be a lot more on the "stroking" side of the equation, though...

What the hell is so special about other people that you need them to be happy? Might as well have a cat, they're cheaper.
#25
Gotta be hopeful right? One no doesn't necessarily mean a universal show of noes...right?

I mean, the forever alone guy is sort of smiling?

Whoa...he is. Now that I look at it, he looks kind of deranged
At least being deranged will take your mind off your crushing loneliness.

I noticed that the first time I saw it. I thought that was common sense. I found it a bit unsetting at first.

Quote by CodeMonk
If you can't be happy with yourself, you aren't likely to be happy with someone else.



This i agree with completely!
#36
I know personally, I couldn't be. I was miserable for the years before I met my wife. And I know they say it's better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all, but I don't even want to think of what life would be like without her That's just depressing.
#37
I was doing just fine being lonely. Then someone had to tell me they liked me. Then, right before she was ready to start dating again, she told me she lost interest. If there's anything worse than rejection, it's being accepted only to be rejected. Before it even began too.

That's why that lyric "Owner of a lonely heart much better than a owner of a broken heart." means something.
#38
You can be single forever and happy as long as you don't ever try being with someone. If they reject you being single will just be misery from then on.

Edit: And holy **** Simon & Garfunkel's "I Am Rock" just came on and I just realized it is exactly what I'm trying to say.

BUT! You have the contrast of having loved in posteriority ERGO! You cannot have the same viewpoint as one who has to date not loved at all. Quod erat demonstrandum.
