“I like that I have my choices, my freedom, my independence. I’m not controlled. I live and breathe for every moment and I’m not suffocated by toxic relationships.”
“I think we’ve reached the stage now that we can choose exactly the type of person we’re wanting and if you’re not 100 per cent happy you don’t have to settle.”
"I had a very toxic, abusive relationship for about four years, that’s why I decided to be single for some time. It’s probably why I am still single."
“I did want all of that relationship with marriage and children, it didn’t come my way for various reasons. But I let that go and I’ve just never been happier.“
“I’ve seen people swipe on my dates and they were pretty open about it.”

“The lack of companionship, the lack of having somebody to share life with, the lack of having somebody take an interest in my life, somebody to reach out to and say, 'Hey, I’ve had a really rough day, what about you?'"
“I want to be single for the rest of my life, that’s my plan.”
“I’m happy, I live my life without compromise, I love it and have no intention of ever living with somebody.”
“I see myself being single until the right person comes along. I’m almost clinical in that sense that the first date I’m trying to ask them some set questions I’ve got in my head.“

“If you’re living alone that doesn’t mean you’re lonely but it does mean the risk of loneliness is increased especially if you don’t choose to be living alone.”
