    Being single is a perfectly acceptable status.

    I have been in relationship in the past. But they tend to fail as soon as the other person wants to take it deeper. Today, I just as happy to be alone.

    Many are not really attracted to people.

    many people dont really care for sex

    There is a saying: timing is everything. Reasons for not range from not ready for a commitment, to social anxieties, to perfectionism (the gift that keeps on giving--if I am not perfect, then I am a failure), another commitment, highly introverted (which can be an anxiety response), just to name a few.

    Very many people are not yet at the stage of commitment and exclusivity

    abandonment issues, neglect, being heartbroken.

    Because they havent found the right person at the moment to commit to. It could be that they are keeping their options open, or whoever is in their life isnt worth the commitment.

    A lot of people are very afraid of getting their heart broken its not a good feeling at all. It really makes you feel like your whole world just ended. Some people also just suck at relationships so they don't know how to or don't wanna keep one.

    Relationships take time and energy and if someone is already fully consumed with school, work, family or whatever they might not want to start something they know they won't have the bandwidth to pay attention to. Either that or they just don't want to be in a relationship with you.

    Maybe they got hurt in their last one that they decided to not be in one
