|Very interesting results. It's sad to know many girls are just settling for a mate. Being single is an amazing time- It's a journey of to find independence and a time to grow!|
"It’s tough to declare a concrete winner—if you value sex and regular “date nights” then coupledom is probably for you, but on the other hand if moving up the corporate ladder and having time to search for your perfect mate sounds appealing then the single life is the way to go."
I find this comment to be a little too formulaic and not really accurate. There are plenty of "power couples" out there who respect each others' careers and who value each others' goals. I've been in a relationship for years and have never once heard by boyfriend complain that I don't devote enough time to him because I'm too busy pursuing my goals in life!
But oh yeah, we still get amazing time together and great sex.

|This is a fun article, but i wish you had gone a bit deeper with the topics. Intimacy,support(emotional), tolerance (others way of doing things) might have brought on some interesting responses.|

|I agree with mandor. You can be in a relationship and still follow your career dreams. You just have to live in a place where both career options are accessible. There's no rule against a couple with two bad ass individuals.|
I agree with mandoir.
I've also been in a relationship for a few years now (we also live together), and I've never felt like I was compromising my career for my "couple life." I have a great job that I love and work hard at, and I really enjoy coming home to someone who wants to talk about my day and theirs over dinner.
I have single friends, and a lot of them love being single, but I find that those who are in serious relationships are labeled just as often as single girls. "Oh, she must just want to get married so she can become a baby machine," or "She's really outdated to be in a serious relationship in her twenties." That's always really irritated me. What's wrong with wanting it all? A great career and someone to share life's adventures with? Sign me up!
Couples have just as much fun as single girls, and since being in a couple, my sex life has never been better :)
