What is bad about being single?
Tying yourself to another person makes no sense to me.
<<--- defines single as anything other than being in an official relationship - therefore unofficial relationships don't count towards lack of singledom.
We're so unimaginative when it comes to our relationships with others.
The only boxes you need are 'know them' and 'don't know them', you should be free to move about the former box as suits.
