is it cruel to only have one budgie and not a pair?

Not necessarily. If you can socialize the bird, letting it outside of the cage, provide lots of toys, it should be fine. Sometimes a pair doesn’t get along, and if your single budgie seems lonely, get another one.

Most people who only want one, fix a mirror in the cage, suggesting the presence of another bird. On the other hand, I knew somebody who kept way more than one in a purpose built aviary.

Yes. Budgies are social. Get it a friend.
