I am going to copy my response to another post another mom just asked:
"I am content with being single. And I enjoy the opportunity because I get to truly explore me, my thought patterns, what I like to do, with freedom. I think this single time allows me to get me in good enough order before I am linked with someone for life. I am a person that has not always been comfortable with me, and after different relationships, I knew that I wanted to get to that point before I became involved with anyone else.
There are many days where I desire someone to be next to me, to watch TV or go out with, or lay next to (intimacy more than sex). But, because I am becoming content with where I am at now, then those desires are just that. They don't have much weight anymore to where I am sad about it. Because it's a blessing for me.
So, while the feeling of wanting/needing someone does not go away, it does not rule over my life. It's because I am content. As long as I have given and am doing my best everyday, then I am alright.
FYI: it took a while to get here, and I have to be mindful of it EVERYDAY, sometimes every minute, LOL, because it is easy to slip."
And, I want to add to that: for you, what do you like to do?
I'm sorry you feel lonely. Do you have some things you like to do so you could start a hobby?

Quoting quickbooksworm:I love being single. Just hang out in some of the groups with married women and you will feel better. They have nasty husbands who leave shit streaks in the toilet, who expect women to clean up.after them, and who buy stupid shit but don't leave enough money for food and clothing. No, thanks. I'd rather be single.
Hahahaha I feel you on that one!
I don't mind being single, but I like having company and me time every once in a while.
