I'm alone by choice, you might say. My dad was a dick and so was his. So I made a conscious decision to not have kids. Besides, who'd wish this shit hole on anyone? I married twice. The first time I was young and drunk. It lasted a few weeks. So, I'm not sure that even counts. My 2nd insisted and I argued against it. We'd been together for 2-3 years. I finally caved. It lasted a year or so more. People are programmed to not need anyone else.
