How many of you married or are in relationships dream of being alone, living alone, coming home to a house that is exactly the same as you left it, not having to ask anyone for their opinions before doing or buying something etc. You get my point.

Even if you love your partner, does anyone ever think of these things?

Nope. I never secretly day dream of this thought. I would be lost if I ever come home to an empty house.

I've always wanted to live alone and never got the chance. I will in the future though

This is why I cannot do marriage or cohabitation.

Yes, I think it's more common than you might suspect. I was actually thinking this very thing today after coming home from a long day at work.

I enjoy being single but at the same time I do crave the day where I meet the RIGHT and PERFECT woman. I'm not settling for anything less than what I deserve.

Nah, not me. Although I value my "alone-time" very much, I love not sleeping alone every night.
I think even if a person is married, he needs to have alone time all the time. It is so important. People with kids and very dependent spouses have a hard time getting away from everyone and just be alone. That's why so many of them just feel like running away sometimes, they are not given any room to breath. And the worst is if you have a nagging partner. You come home from a stressful day of work and all you hear is nag, nag, nag. Shut the hell up and let me be.

I'm very fortunate to have that alone time. If I need it, I just say that I'm going for a walk or sit by the pool, even if it's just for 1/2 hour.

And of course my kid. That goes without saying. I can't imagine my life without him.
