I rarely feel lonely even though my life is pretty much that of a single gal (my partner & I only see each other once every other month or so). I very much so enjoy singlehood, but I'm a very independent person who doesn't feel the need to have companionship.
Hanging out with friends, reading a good book, taking myself out on dates (I always get exactly what I want AND an orgasm at the end of the night
), investing time/energy in my own interests & hobbies...
I find dating to be quite fun, but I love meeting new people even if it ends up going nowhere.
