Would you rather grow old with someone you "settled" for, or be alone when you are older because you didn't find true love?

I'd rather be alone and half way happy than be miserable with someone I don't love.

I'd rather be alone. There's no point in settling for someone you don't love. That's no way to live out the rest of your life.

I've found my true love already.

I want to be old with some one that love and cherish. Growing old alone is a death sentence.

Alone... I'd never settle...

I'd rather be alone than to just settle

I would rather grow old by myself. It wouldn't be fair to the other person to be with someone for so long that didn't fully appreciate them.

I don't "settle" and am lucky enough to be with the right one already.

Defo be alone

I would rather be alone In this case. It's better to be with the one you truely love and can't live without rather than somebody you just "settle" for.

I have found my true love and I am so grateful and will always be grateful. If we part for some reason beyond my control or wishes I would rather grow old without a partner but I'd still have family around me and I'd try to live a happy life.
I feel like such an incredibly lucky guy to have you! Wow! I'm so happy this question doesn't apply but I agree I'd rather be alone. Love you babe

Don't know. I'm glad I found someone to get old with that IS my true love and puzzle piece.
I would never have settled. Life is at once too short and too long to spend it with someone you've settled for. I am with my soulmate. There is nothing that comes close to that.
