Most of us would agree that being in love is a beautiful, wonderful magical thing. It’s lovely. But when you take the plunge, make a commitment and decide to share your life with someone else, that comes with some adjustments. Though, most of our readers would never want to go back, they also had to admit that there are some things about their old single lives that they miss. See what they had to say.

Terrell: I don’t believe anyone up here who says nothing…no offense! married life is not all its marketed/portrayed to be. if more people were honest about the real struggle and effort it takes to co-exist w/ another free thinking adult more marriages would genuinely be HAPPY! okay! there.s me free advertising comment of the day! (o: goodLuck guys!

Erin: Finding something where I left it!

Janae: Being able to relate to all my friends. Most of my best friends are still single and can’t relate to me in the same way and it’s weird.

Shequita: Being able to talk to the opposite sex without your or his spouse having a fit. Not everybody is trying to sleep with you. What happened to being able to be friendly?

Lisa: Honestly… every blue moon… I miss having the bed to myself. Luckily, he travels and I enjoy it then… but being single is overrated…

Danita: No drama and not answering to anyone!!!!!


Jackie: Sometimes I miss having the house to myself or going unaccounted for a weekend or so. Its not often though plus its easy to send him out with his friends lol


Ebony: Not having to cook, house staying exactly how I left it, not having to go through pointless minor arguments, less laundry, having to wait for him to get home to watch DVRed shows like LHHATL Lol….but ultimately I wouldn’t change being with my man for nothing in the world. Being single has its perks but having someone who loves you unconditionally, someone you can count on… priceless!!!


Rashida: Having nice things in your home.

Rachael: I disliked being single and dating was torture but….. I miss not cooking , and not being accountable to someone. But I prefer married life even at its lowest
