Why Are You Still Single?

^i agree with this one.

for my case, parang naeenjoy ko naman yung single life and hindi talaga ako naghahanap, parang I don’t find the need to be attached right now.

Amen. Especially with women. Parang kakulangan that you reach a certain age, and you are unattached. Sabi nga sa isang pelikula, kapag lalaki ang single, eligible bachelor. Kapag babae, old maid.

OffT ata itong isishare ko. May kakilala ako na single by choice talaga siya. Scientist, like big time. Matanda na siya. Pero she’s proud and happy to say, whenever she’s asked, na she’s single by choice.

Bakit nga ba? Cliche if I say na choice ko (altho, sige, choice ko rin). Siguro mas accurate na guarded ako since being open with my true feelings caused me immense heartbreak. In any case, inaayos ko pa sarili ko.

For a time naniwala ako na relationships don’t last, so why bother starting one?

Buti na lang di na ako naniniwala dun ngayon.

Officially, now. :slight_smile:

Because I am brave enough to end a relationship that left me fragmented.

Apir here. I have heard people tell me that being in this position is scaring off prospects. I tell them, magagawa ko kung naabot ko ang mga naabot ko?

Siguro may mga tao lang na hindi ligawin at hindi palaligaw/pala-date. Got a woman friend who is nearing 40s na NBSB, sinabihan daw ng circle niya of friend na masyado raw siyang “maingay/madaldal” kaya di siya type ligawan ng mga lalake. Im gay so I can’t really say. Suggestion ko lang eh lumandi siya abroad pero di niya rin nagagawa.

In my case, nung na-hit ko yung 30s ko tapos medyo nag-ok ang work–meaning I love my job tapos I get paid well, eh hindi na priority for me.

Nandun rin pala yung pressure na since may idea ako na kung ano ang gusto ko sa partner ko–physical qualities, career standing, nung 20s ako eh nag-matter pa kung UP grad o hindi hahahaha, eh I delayed it muna kasi nga my mantra is “have the ideal qualities you want in your partner” so ayun.

Mindset ko na lang eh darating siya kung sino man yun. Kelangan lang handa ka pag dumating siya. It helps na lalake ako–I dont mean to be sexist here ah, pero wala din akong hinahabol na biological clock so no pressure.

This is such utter BS. I have a friend around your friend’s age din na havent had a relationship in 7 years now at nasabihan sya ng barkada nya na kaya daw sya wala syang relationship kasi “materialistic” daw sya bilang successful ang career. Patronizing and ignorant comments :roll_eyes:

I was told na hindi daw ako pang long term… I easily bore them and that I am a slave to my routine…

Wala naman akong magawa kung ayaw na nila… hindi rin naman ako naghahabol pag ayaw…

gusto ko kasi mas matalino at mas mayaman sa akin :embarasslaff:

As a mahirap, I really stray away sa mas mayaman sakin. I mean, kahit I like her, pag nagbackground check ako tapos i found out na talagang mas mayaman sakin, I don’t bother na. I guess it’s just a reality check? I don’t hit up with someone who’s beyond my league. Or to someone na I can’t match what her father can provide her.

It’s a futile attempt for me. Kaya ngayon, focus ako to build up my wallet to level up my game.
