I am 43, never married and I LOVE being single!! I LOVE having my space and my freedom. I love having control of the remote, cleaning and doing laundry when I feel like it and not because someone else wants me to. I love staying up as late as I want or going to bed early if I feel like it, and sleeping in completely undisturbed on the weekends. I believe some people are just not meant for long term monogomous relationships and that I am one of them. I decided when I was 11 years old that I never wanted to get married or have kids and I have never once felt differently...and I am perfectly content with my life.
I could've written this post myself. Except, I'm 32 and knew by age 12 that I didn't want to get married or have kids.
You're a smart woman.
