We also need to take into account the difference in human social behaviours and how each persons brain functions. For instance I can happily enjoy being by myself for extended periods of time. I'm a little introverted like that, I find Im my most creative when alone. As a designer, being alone is great for my work. I don't however consider myself lonely. If I didn't have my own 'me time', I know I would become a real pain to my family and friends. Extended amounts of human interaction becomes exhausting.

On the opposite end of the scale some people require human interaction on a regular basis, and being by themselves for extended periods of time can be stressful.

We can't really ever comprehend the other end of the stick or what it's like to not be yourself. So to say being unmarried or single is to be lonely, is simply not true.

@The passage Ahh, well I didn't really look at it like that. I guess your above question is warranted then, albeit they were asked why they don't want to get married. I doubt many people would give positive reasons when asked that.

The passageJAN. 18, 2013 - 07:12PM JST I don't about immature, but my observation of them is selfish.

I have a question though, who are they being selfish to? Society? Not wanting to do something for personal comfort could be deemed as being selfish. But if it does not effect any one else, does it really matter and is it selfish? Heres an example.

Everyone is going on a school trip, going on the school trip does not effect your grade. The school trip is on a saturday. You can either go or not go. I don't want to go cause I want to play baseball with my friends instead, as I think it would be more fun. That's basically what marriages is. An *optional trip or 'journey' if you would. Not going on it doesn't effect any one but yourself. Choosing not to do it isn't selfish no matter what the circumstances.

ps. i know thats a pretty lame analogy :)

jessebaybay, that is exactly what I want to do this year. In fact, I've shared my new year's resolutions with friends and co-workers, and they've all been extremely supportive. Nobody told me that I was being selfish, on the contrary they seem a bit envious, whether married or single.

Haha, good to hear tessa, im really putting my all into this year!

I dont understand why people are bashing on these guys for not getting married. Please scroll up and read my comment about me most likely falling into the 40% yes. Further more Im not even actively searching for a girlfriend. I have decided that 2013 will be about pursing my career and having my business become successful. I also want to focus heavily on my fitness and on top of that I want to travel for an extended amount of time. Girls aren't even on the radar at the moment.

If any one is to say im childish or selfish for having such ambition / goals, they're are just being silly. Some people above have said that these guys are married to their jobs. Is there anything wrong with that?

I just don't see how not wanting to get married is a selfish act. How so? If you don't want kids and dont want to be married who are you being selfish too? Your unborn children? Or perhaps your non existent wife?

Marriage / kids - there is no right or wrong decision, simply your own (and to each his own).

Posted in: Increasing number of Japanese men opt for bachelorhood See in context

hmm, after thinking about it and reading the article I would fall into the category of people that said "yes".

I have 4 siblings all of whom are married with children. Im the youngest in the family at 25. Having 14 nieces and nephews has really opened my eyes. I love being an uncle, but seeing the strain of kids first hand on my brothers and sisters is clear. I don't think I want to get married or have kids. Or at the very least not until im in my mid 30's. Some people might say I will change my mind, sure I might change my mind, but for now and into the forceable future it's a big fat no.

Everything that was said above by in the article is relatively true enough. I see it in my own family and also in my friends who have tied the knot.

The last sentence of this article is by far the worst. I... dont even really know what to say. Im against the death penalty, but men like that don't deserve any better.

Posted in: Should voting in elections be compulsory? See in context

in australia is compulsory if you have enrolled to vote. Enrolling however isn't compulsory. I think you will also find that after enrolling and now being forced to vote (or receive i think a $30 fine) people tend to be more interested in government, especially local government.

I think its a good thing.

If you have to consent to take the test, it's still doing its job. If you choose not to take the test consider yourself off to a bad start. It's like someone asking if you can take a drug test. You have nothing to fear if you haven't taken drugs recently. If you refuse the test, its pretty clear to those around you that you probably are taking drugs.

It's almost a form of peer pressure.

Best role he ever player was "Les Grossman" out of tropic thunder... Why? Because he wore a fat suit and was super surprisingly funny. He should do stuff like that more often.

Posted in: Sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll: Australia's other boom See in context

Doing drugs in australia (not including pot) is a very expensive habit to take up. This article doesn't surprise me in the least. To give you an example an 3.5 grams of coke would probably go for around $900. If your in the US you could probably get it for around $100-$150 (maybe even cheaper). So of course this is going to attract international attention.

When I was 18 (and less responsible) I could spend up to $300-$400 on a saturday night just on club entry fees, cabs and drinks. I had a good paying job so I could keep this up from weekend to weekend. Then I grew up and realised I was an idiot ha-ha.

Now you have 18 year olds making 5 times what I was making if they work at the mines. They come home from 3 weeks of work with around 6-9k in their pocket. Our binge drinking and drug problems are only going to get worse for sure.

It's a strange problem to have and i don't think anyone knows how to tackle it. Oh btw, cabs are around the same price as japanese cabs.

Posted in: Sony stops making PlayStation 2 in Japan See in context

I wasn't aware they were still making them. But knowing that they have now officially stopped makes me think, who was actually still buying PS2's?

Im not the biggest console gaming person, but I was playing with one of those things... maybe when I was 12? Im coming up to my mid twenties now. That's 12 -13 years! Damn it had a good run.

@jason stiles Yes I do remember that haha!

Porco Rosso which is a delightful story with some very nice elements has the main character cast as an ugly pig. It is a sad downgrade for what could have been a wonderful classic.

That's what makes the stories so good. I dislike Disney for its super fresh super clean stories. The princess is always beautiful, the prince always handsome and the ending always a happy one. Where is the fun in that. Ghibili always seem to break away from the norm in one way or another and for that I love them.

Posted in: Women can tell which men cheat just by looking at them: study See in context

I dont think it's that hard to tell who is going to be faithful and who isn't just by looking at them. You can pick guys that cheat from a mile away. The ladies can be a bit more difficult, but still, there is always tell tail signs.

In saying that, you can't judge a book by it's cover. I haven't ever cheated on any of my former girlfriends in the past, but have had some girls argue from first appearances that I would sleep around. Which to be honest, having someone tell you that to your faces based soley on how you look makes you feel like crap lol.
