Also, being alone doesn't equal loneliness. I've been in relationships where I felt lonely because the person I was with didn't think it important to pay attention to me once I had been hooked, and after leaving, I felt less lonely despite being single and therefore "alone" (but surrounded by friends and colleagues who liked to spend time with me). Being single was freedom. Being attached to unworthy people was being isolated and parasitized.

Agreed. That reminds me of that Robin Williams quote: "I used to think the worst thing in life was to end up all alone. It’s not. The worst thing in life is ending up with people who make you feel all alone"

very true! i have an ex who both isolated and neglected me and after she broke up with me, i didn't feel lonely at all because finally i could spend time with my friends again without fearing that she was going to punish me for it.

Cats shit in a box in my house and they're still better company than 99.9% of men. πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ

The fact that most single women are single by choice entirely escapes their comprehension, because they project their own desperation onto us.
