• Being able to spend my own money on what I want except for rent and bills. To go where I want when I want. Date different gals. Sleep and eat when I want too. Biggest draw back is being lonely at times.
    • Linda Joy
      I can agree with all the positives! I don't remember ever being lonely. I do remember missing people that I like a lot when they're not here is that the same thing? As for feeling like I need someone... I don't. I've been with just me for 17 years and it's working out okay so far!
    • Thinker
      I have been alone this time for over 10 years and averaged 10 years between each of my three marriages. I would rather be alone most of the time but at times I wish there was someone around. I don't even date very much. Plenty of women in my age group but most are lame or on 30 different medications twice per day. I am a long way from that. You know my age and I take only one med.
    • Linda Joy
      Is there even a label for that particular prejudice? What an interesting way to limit your options!
  • Sleeping sprawled out in the middle of the bed. Not compromising on what movie to watch. Nobody being jealous or telling me how to live. Not having a dude slowly try to get me to do things like his laundry and cook for him like I'm his mom. Having said all that- I'm currently actively looking for a boyfriend haha
    • Linda Joy
      I had to lol @ that last line after all you said! I don't recall ever looking for a boyfriend. They just seem to show up, even when I don't want someone! Lol. I don't mind cooking for people I've done it all my life. I don't mind doing folks laundry either, as long as I have time. And as for mothering, I'm a sucker for that, too! Just about anyone needs mothering, I'm there for them! Lol I have 3 daughters I didn't give birth to! But it does present problems seeing someone you mother as a lover. It's just not natural! I've heard it said if you're looking for a partner you should write down everything you want in a partner and once you can define it they will show up! Good luck!

      Shaddup and go make me a sammich!!
    • Linda Joy
      Sure thing! I was a Subway sandwich artist at one time! Haha! Lets see maybe a ham and cheese with some oleander and foxglove!
  • getting to do whatever you want without having to ask someone, get to sleep alone with noone snoring or keeping me up
    • Linda Joy
      I was supposed to ask someone? Maybe that's why my marriages failed!
    • Joreta Cherry
      no one
  • Belching and farting, without apology !!
  • Do what I want when I want and if I don't wanna I don't gotta. 🤪
  • No female care products sprawled out over the bathroom sink. No hair in the shower drain and 20 different soaps and shampoos in the shower. And I'm never sitting around waiting for someone else to get ready. I'm actually on time now!
    • Linda Joy
      What's even worse is when they have crap all over the tank of the toilet! You never know when you're going to have to close the flapper manually! And my theory on being late is if you can't be on time take your own vehicle, because I'm not being late because of you! And anyone who don't think I'll leave them will only doubt it once! lol In defense of women all the beauty products are the fault of men that put pressure on women to look good. There was a short time in my life when I wouldn't leave the house without makeup, but that's when I was young. I learned how to get by with just shampoo and conditioner when I was homeless. And the hair is no joke! I use drain screens. Best to prevent things from getting in the drain than to have to get them out!
    • Archie Bunker
      Well Linda, as someone who's been married twice, I can tell you that both of my marriages would have been over a lot sooner if I had left home without them because they were late getting ready. And as far as MEN being the reason for all the beauty products, I think you're totally wrong. It's women who feel the need for all that shit to make them feel better about themselves. All of those women's magazines are geared towards women, not men who tell their ladies what to buy. Yes, men have ideas of what they want their women to look like, just like women have ideas of what they like in men. It's a self-confidence thing. If you want to keep hairy pits and legs and not put on lipstick, go ahead. There's people that like that. I like women shaved, but I don't like the fake eyebrows and lips and the 60 year old women with jet-black dyed hair. Different strokes, but it's not the men who decide that.
    • Nosmo King
      @Linda Joy: Get one of those toilets with a cistern about 10 feet high. Nobody could crap on a cistern (or tank) as high as that. And best of all, the high-cistern ones have a louder flush.
    • Linda Joy
      Well Archie, if you'd have ended them sooner you wouldn't have had to shell out as much in the divorce. And I don't care who likes what! I can have a man any time I want. I believe if I had leprosy with my skin falling off there would still be a man somewhere that would do me simply because I have a vagina and that's all men really want. In fact if you're still able to 20 years from now you'll probably be willing to do the very woman you described above! Hair and all!
    • Linda Joy
      NK, I live in an apartment. And if there is ever anything on the tank of my toilet its in a basket or bowl and usually only there for guests.
    • Archie Bunker
      Not all men just want a vagina.
    • Linda Joy
      Oh yeah I forgot they also want power control dominance etc
    • Archie Bunker
      I didn't shell out a lot in my divorces. Despite my humor-filled banter, I actually came out pretty good, considering. And not all men are looking for power, control & dominance. Just as all women are not looking to be controlled & dominated.
  • Being able to freely meet and greet and relate many different folks, particularly women, without explaining my motives.
  • your freedonn
  • More privacy for a start. More money to spend on whatever I want is another. And less responsibility.
  • Wow, I have been married 32 years, and I do almost all of those things that have already been mentioned, so I will just say not having to compromise.
  • Being at all isn't all it's cracked up to be.
  • noone telling you what to do
  • I'm always on time. I don't like being late and usually arrive early for everything.
  • Ahh then you don't need to tell anything that where you are? Why you did this? even you don't have any restrictions :-P
  • Being able to do what satisfies me without having someone questioning it.
