Id rather be single. Its a total waste of time to be with someone you dont really love and watch your young years go by, its so much better to put yourself out there and who knows...the right person for you might just be around the corner waiting to bump into you :)

Depends where your  best interests lie.
There is a big difference between someone you do not love (but respect) vs someone whose company you can't stand (even if 24/7 you're lolling in excess material comfort).

I have seen good marriages where the couple's relationship is based on mutual respect and common vested interests.  They live peaceably together, are comfortably content and exhibit kindness and respect towards each other.   

The "love" builds up, starting usually with the devotion of the man to give the woman a stable life, a guiding hand in advancing her career or interests. 
(Hindi nga ba, love can be developed just as well as love can be lost.) Some women, well... their heart gets tired at some point, and choose to have someone just take care of them.  And I don't just mean materially (I am not referring to kabits here ha.  Ibang cuentahan yon, let us not go there.)   

Now, there are women who choose to be single, and end up bitter, short-changed or unable to bring their careers to great heights.
Of course, synergy yields better and faster results.
 (Coz it  is not  a simple matter of financial support.  But more of the I-will-create-you-into-a-monster kind of guidance   LOL ..  usually from men much older and already accomplished vs young upstart wives.    Ejemplo:  Think Marcos and Imelda,  Leviste and Legarda.   The wives learned their political smarts from their husbands.  They used their husband's existing political ties.     View it as good or bad, admittedly, the wives earned their place in our political history.  Amen)

Where you think your best interests lie, meaning where you can advance your  priorities... a marriage based on mutual respect and common vested intersts   vs  being single --  there lies your answer.

i'd rather be alone than be with someone i feel nothing for.  i'll just end up feeling guilty plus kawawa lang siya.  saka kahit ako, i don't want someone to stay with me just because he's afraid of being alone.  i want to love and be loved in return. :)
there now, steady love, so few come and don't go
will you, won't you be the one i'll always know
when i'm losing my control the city spins around
you're the only one who knows, you slow it down

mahal ba ako nung taong di ko mahal? if mahal niya ako, then i'd rather be with him kesa alone. more or less mamahalin ko din siya eventually.

^am single sis.
I just realized I am not meant to be somebody's "someone" nor anyone's "The One";I am "The Only One" and I am meant for no one but "me,myself,and I".

single, sayang lang oras nyo pareho. at kawawa lang yung guy kung hindi mo naman pala mahal.. it's a good feeling being with someone pero if there's no love it's useless.. i think..

OUCH.... i prepare to be ALONE rather than to be with the with the guy na hindi ko naman mahal... tama si rox_cute sasayangin nyo lang ang oras nyong dalawa kasi hindi naman maggrow un eh..

remember in a relationship it should GROW everyday.. mas ok nga kung oras oras eh.. you can feel it within yourself. and it has a give and take cases sa tingin mu kapag ayaw mu sa kanya mabibigyan mu ba cya?

to be alone and single rather than to be stuck with someone that i don't love. it would be unfair to the both of us. a waste of time. being single doesn't mean you have to wallow in self pity. you can be happy if you want to. happiness is always a choice! :)

of course single... I actually tried that: get another guy to help me move on with previous love hang over... it doesn't work... and I felt sorry for him...

now I'm single and happy... There's no hurry in entering another romantic relationship simply because I felt alone or whatever... I am actually enjoying every moment of being single

SINGLE! :-)
Don't want to waste time and effort with someone I dont love.

I'd rather be single than be with someone I don't love, it will be unfair to both parties anyway.

i'm happier now that i'm alone than when i was forcing myself into "fulfilling" relationships where the men love me more than i love them. hay. the damage i caused seem irreparable. hanggang ngayon i feel guilty about my exes, especially the 4th one.
Up where they walk, up where they run, up where they stay all day in the sun, wondering free, wish I could be...

The key to succeeding in a relationship is not finding the right person; it's learning to love the person you found.

Alone and single.
First, it will be unfair to the person if you are with him yet you don't love him. It will simply be too selfish in your part, and in the end you will  be miserable.
Second, what if the right one comes along while your in a relationship with someone you don't really love.
