Nothing wrong with being single, you are more likely to find someone special if you are single and it doesnt bother you ;) relaxed atmosphere etc. :D

I am single because the ex decided she could do better than me. I am working through some stuff she left me with besides a big debt think hundreds of thousands here and for the most part I am glad she did get rid of me as I am finding the real me is much more fun and someday yes I would like to be a part of a couple again. The pickings being small for sisters is not a whole lot better for the brothers either. I have been told I should have a job and not going to college, forget I had career for 37 years that I retired from. That I could not possibly keep them in a life style they are accustomed too. That I am looking at women that are to young for me, never mind the ex was in that age group. No it was not that great a difference in age something like 10 years. I am not the kind of priesthood holder they want aka I am only an elder not a high priest whatever that has to do with being a good husband and companion. I have even drove 5 hours to have a dinner date just to go out on a date and then drive 5 hours home again. Why to have a interesting night out and also to have a lively conversation over dinner kind of hard when there is only one of you at the table. I see marriage as being something more than I love you right now but you know in a few years I need to dump you because you have aged. Oh well maybe someday there will be someone that is right for me if not then I will live alone which I hate but is so much better than being a part of something where you are not loved, wanted or desired beyond what you can do for the other person in the relationship.

I am a convert but before my conversion I was married at 18 and divorced at 19 and now 24. No rush for me.

I'm siingle now because i finally found the courage to divorce my abusive ex. I have tried dating but can'r seem to find anyone that i'm compatible with. Most men in their 50's are set in their ways and think they know more than  everyone else. I think i will enjoy my life more , just being single.

I'm single now (and fairly recently) because I finally came up with the money to divorce my cheating ex. I'm just starting trying to date again after getting myself of a self-destructive phase of my life. I have a testimony, I'm not abusive or a pedophile . I do take showers and am less lazy than the average person I know. I just got a job as well as my driver's license and my first car (which being able to drive is huge as well as difficult for me because of a disability). I live in a rural area with only one other single member in my branch, who happens to be male like myself.

The first big hurdle I kept running into was the whole "I'll only date a returned missionary!" mentality. My maternal grandmother had just been diagnosed with Alzheimer's, and so I stayed back home to help my mom take care of her. Rather than ask why I didn't go, however, a lot of people - including some of the local priesthood brethren - simply turned their backs on me. 

 

I did eventually find someone around 2005, but I did something stupid and caused a rift in the relationship that never healed. 

 

I spent the next two years trying again, but this came to a halt when I was laid off in the fall of 2007. Given that I was in college at the time, this was a severe blow to my finances. Whatever money I made from temp jobs and day labor wound up going for tuition; I simply couldn't afford the local dating scene. 

 

I eventually found a job at the end of 2008, but by then my finances were so devastated that I still couldn't afford anything. I finally got my finances back in shape around 2012, just in time for a massive mistake on the part of the grad school I was attending; because of this mistake, I spent an entire calendar year without any sort of financial aid. This broke my finances back into pieces, meaning that I couldn't afford to go anywhere; $20 was a big splurge back then. 

 

Well, I made it through graduate school, and I finally started getting my finances back in shape... only for the federal insurance mandate to hit. Even though I'm only carrying a "bronze" plan, my premiums are still the size of a car payment. Between this and all of my other bills, my entire "entertainment" budget each month is a mere $50; that's dinner for two at any place nice.
