You know this is a really interesting question.

I won't say that I have necessarily consciously chosen to be without a significant relationship, but some of my actions would strongly suggest that I have unconsciously done so.

Frankly, I get lonely only very rarely. I feel very safe in my house, and I doubt I would feel that kind of security if someone else were here.

I guess I've just never been a "hey let's get together and date" kind of chic - although I have certainly dated and have dumped and been dumped myself.

I have a really full life that I must admit I truly truly love. I ride horses, I play with tigers, I teach, I work, I write. Whenever I can, however, I like to just lie around. I have pets. I like peace and quiet.

For me, there really hasn't been a question of how I manage being alone - it's SOP for me. It's more like a question of "how to manage when someone else is there".

I don't have to answer to anybody for what I do, and I don't have to make allowances for other people. It may sound selfish, but I REALLY like that.

The only thing that bugs me is the expectation people have that we are supposed to be with someone. I simply can not understand why people think that (and I don't want to debate it here). Everyone is different.
