The most common reasons for "singleness," (meaning NOT MARRIED) among young people are, "I'm not ready to settle down." "I'm really focused on getting established in my chosen field." "I'm not ready to have sex with just one person for the rest of my life."
The most common reasons for singleness among the more mature are the same but different. "I haven't found anyone I want to marry." "All the good ones are taken." "Most people my age have a lot of baggage."
Am I the only one who notices that the reasons for singleness as a young person are the CAUSE of singleness in the more mature? Just sayin'.
