  I actually don't care if I am always single.  All I want is  friends and lovers who are also friends.  I no longer expect to find any one person who can run with me.  I know that the person I am is so unable to be packaged that it is a waste of time.  When I was young I explained to my lover I was like Gully Foye of  Stars My destination(alfred bester)  Which scared her.  I am a gregarious loner who loves to go out to socialize but does not want to live with anybody.

Well I have no idea who Gully Foyle is either.  But if you're happy being single and you know what you want, then that's fine.  I was trying to explain to a friend who is a widow why I don't want to get married again.  Of course she was happily married, so she wants to get married again.  After 2 divorces, I am very wary about it.  I'm not sure if I'd live with someone since it's hard to decide that w/o knowing a specific person.  I would like a relationship though but not all consuming.  I'd still like free time and time to spend with friends.

George Clooney, is that you?  Ha!

I am more or less in the same boat as yourself(Though, know little of Gulliver Foyle).  As long as you are fine with it, that's all that really matters.
