Alex Russell is a 46-year-old long term singleton who lives near Dorking, Surrey, UK, and works in tech for a railway company. In a recent post, he said that following the pandemic and the endless restrictions, he decided not to live with a woman ever again. Why? Well, there’s a lot to take in here, so let’s begin.
Emerging from the pandemic, one would think that a long-term singleton would look for a companionship of a live-in girlfriend of a wife. However, he says that he can’t think of anything worse. He noted that his last relationship ended a decade ago, and he has no intention of pursuing one, let alone live with a woman. He believes that lockdown has taught him that he’s most content on his own, and he would rather get home to his Jack Russell Oscar than a female partner.
‘Unlike one of my exes, my dog doesn’t nag me if I want to lie on the sofa and have a nap, or complain if I head out to the gym or spend hours restoring my classic Jaguar XJS sports car.
I’ve never imagined being married with children because I’m so independent.’ – he further added.
Actress Kate Beckinsale recently spoke about her own preference of living alone after being married to director Len Wiseman for 15 years until 2019, and said that she couldn’t imagine living with a person and maintaining her newfound autonomy. She further explained that for women in relationships with men, it’s quite easy to lose track of your life – especially after you’ve watched your own mother and grandmother.
However, it’s not only women who can feel that living with a partner erases their sense of self, as many men confirmed that they wouldn’t be living with a woman ever again.
