I think I'm happier and less stressed out than friends of mine who're married or attached. A friend of mine and his girlfriend just admitted to cheating on each other - both of them - while she was away on a month-long work assignment. Now they're arguing because he proposed an open relationship.
I honestly think you can be happily single, just as you can be unhappily married/attached.
I am also single but thought I would troll you all being single is not bad at all, make the most of everything and take what life gives and rest assured you will find someone. Don't forget to be yourself! (god it sounds cheesy - but it's true )

Lol and why the fuck do you associate being lonely with no friends?
Now I only really ever keep a small circle of close friends and hardly ever go to big social events. It's not that I'm shy or socially awkward but after having been to a few big gatherings this is usually what happens:
Everyone gets drunk
Everyone tries to attention whore and make themselves the center of attention [100% serious].
Or everyone makes small talk for the sake of it.
No thanks Jeff. I'd much rather have a night in with a few close friends or give me a book to read any day. I prefer small social settings with actual meaning behind them [ie to watch a team we all support] than big parties where everyone is just there to waste time and get drunk. I don't know about you mate, but I can't stand nearly every aspect of what society deems 'socialising', it gets on my nerves. It's probably because a lot of people socialise to seek validation from others so they're not labelled 'anti social'. Fuck that, not a single fuck was given.
Trust me it's better to have a group of close knitted mates you hang out with every so often than to just have a large social circle without any meaning.
Heck I wouldn't even mind if I had no friends at all as I prefer my own company most of all.
And in regards to getting a GF, after a few relationships trust me you don't want to get into one. Single life is infinitely many times better. This is probably because 99% of girls are attention seekers and I cannot stand attention seekers. It's hard to find a girl in the Western world who doesn't live to get drunk on the weekends.
I just like my own independence. If you live to seek validation from others you can never live freely or independently, which is exactly how those YOLO socialising idiots live.

"But certain interests of particular people are so important that it would be wrong - morally wrong - for the community to sacrifice those interests just to secure an overall benefit. Political rights mark off and protect these particularly important interests. A political right, we may say, is a trump over the kind of trade-off argument that normally justifies political action." - Ronald Dworkin (RIP)
Being a single has it's pros. You free to do almost whatever you want. I was once chatting with some friends and telling how I really want to live in many different countries in the future. A girl asked my that how about family life? I just said I haven't thought about that. The promising thing for me is that when my grandpa got married at 39, he said he's wasting a lot of good youth. And I still have 16 years to that.
And being a single isn't that bad also when watching tennis. I'm not sure a gf would like me going to sleep at 6pm, to wake up at 2am to watch Lisicki at the AO.
