YouTube - If you're not married, you're single.

100% for both men and women...

Sometimes, even when you ARE married, you're still single.

I had a girlfriend get mad at me because I didn't change my "relationship status" on a dating site. There was no option for "in a relationship"...but I pointed out that I wasn't logging in, so I wasn't even looking at the site. My status was still "single"...even though I'm in a committed relationship, I'm still technically single unless I get married.

"single" means "not married." it's not a reflection on whether one is attached, involved, "in a relationship," etc. etc.

excuse me, but I'm fed-up with the trend of changing the meaning of words which have meant one thing since they were invented, to suit personal choice

Funny thing is many forms do differentiate among "single," "divorced," and widowed.

I lasted just under 2 minutes of Louis William's theory of relationships before I started to yawn and seeing as how I don't recognize the Bible as a definitive on anything, we don't have W2's here (whatever the hell they are) and the Australian government and Australian culture has a completely different definition of what constitutes single or married I'll go with what applies to me here.

I am not married nor am I single.

Well, it's not horribly exiting... I haven't seen the video. I don't watch most of them in general.

There are other threads I've a lot more to say on, but I just don't want to. Fluff is easy and unupsetting. You get to participate and yet you don't...

Married or single both got ups and downs. Sometimes ups out number the downs...let us all hope.

Example: the term 'single mother'...I am married but if I got divorced I'd prefer to be called a "divorced mother of 4'..."single mother of 4' sounds like I was never married.

Makes sense. I would, too. As a matter of fact, I'd even prefer just "a mother of 4."
