Quotes about Being Single

A Collection of Quotes about Being Single

A lot of people forget how taking a walk in nice weather alone is a very uplifting. It gets the serotonin working, and it's not super taxing. It puts life in perspective.

When you're in a relationship you don't get around to doing that. - Delphine Hirsh

I don't think being single is a good thing at all, but once in a while it is good to have a break from a relationship, especially if you are a faithful guy, to have some time to think about life and get energy back up for the next round. - Eduardo Villarreal

There is a restless kind of consumer shopping for partners, as if the "right one" can be found by totting up a potential mate's pluses and minuses until the number of pluses matches some mythical standards. - Deepak Chopra

Married women are just as capable of misery as singles, and single women are just as capable of happiness as married women. Both are capable of feeling loneliness and boredom and the weight of dependence. - Kristyn Marie

[Being] single is better... for the simple reason that I wouldn't want to change no diapers. Of course, if I did get married, I'd figure something out. I'd just phone my mother and have her come over for some coffee and diaper changing. - Kirsten, age 10

What you are as a single person, you will be as a married person, only to a greater degree.

That's why I called it Dangerously In Love. It's basically all of the steps in a relationship from when you first meet a guy to realizing you're interested to dancing with him the first night to thinking that you're in love to realizing that you're now a little open to making love to breaking up to having to love yourself after the breakup. All of that. A celebration of love. - Beyonce Knowles

Of all the old maid's blessing, the greatest is carte blanche. Spinsterhood is powerful; once a woman is called "that crazy old maid" she can get away with anything. - Florence King


Singlehood is not longer a state to be overcome as soon as possible. It has its own rewards. Marriage is not the gateway to adulthood anymore. For most people it's the dessert - desirable, but no longer the main course. - Stephanie Coontz

Singles must actively update their mental files to see that being unmarried is just as valuable a choice as being in a couple. - McGarth

Singleness has become an acceptable alternative in our society. A generation or two ago, a single person was looked upon in the community as somewhat weird, one who just did not quite make it to the altar. - Robert Alberti and Bruce Fisher

I'm not that girl who's really concerned with it. I've dated a bit and it's just draining to me. If it's not going to happen natural, obviously it's going to be someone in the industry because that's the only time people ever really see me. - Kelly Clarkson

I thought I'd be the person who, every time I hear a little noise, would hide under my bed. But I've fallen in love with my home," "When I'm in there, I feel safe."

I feel completely safe in my house but all my friends are scared for me. And of course I can tell my parents panic a little. The best thing about living alone is being able to have my friends come over whenever. - Vanessa Hudgens

If you want to sacrifice the admiration of many men for the criticism of one, go ahead, get married. - Katherine Hepburn

It's been nice not having a boyfriend. I could be in a relationship if I wanted to be, but I haven't finished doing what I'm doing. I like boy, a lot. I'm boy crazy. That hasn't changed since I was very young. - Cameron Diaz

I've had somebody on the end of the phone, maybe, but I haven't been living with anyone or been in a proper relationship, and it's been really great. And now I'm completely on my own. I think I've grown up a lot. - Sienna Miller

When I think about it like that, it feels like a burden. But that won't mean I'll be single for the rest of my life - I hope. I feel very settled with myself in my world. I don't feel as needy and desperate to prove things about myself. In my twenties I was very keen to achieve this and disprove this and that. Now I enjoy just being able to concentrate on my children and my work and myself. - Jude Law
