Even George Clooney admits life as a bachelor gets lonely

Post by Katiedot on Mon Jan 30 2012, 11:13

Dubious quote (can anyone remember where it came from?)

From Cabo olture net

Dreaming of being a bachelor

Kate Clifford | 30th January 2012

A life free of the "unbearable" ties of marriage - to do whatever you want whenever you want, without arguments, concerns or guilt.

A man considered adventurous, confident and financially successful and someone who has adapted to filling life with partying, extreme sports and expensive holidays.

Of course, there are women ... in some cases plenty.

But none fit the strict criteria of what a wife should be and are simply considered a well-deserved fling.

To some men, bachelorhood is considered the ultimate lifestyle: a success story in the eyes of those "tied-down" types.

But even Hollywood's most iconic bachelor George Clooney (and two-time winner of People magazine's Sexiest Man Alive) has admitted his life as a bachelor gets lonely. "The holidays are the toughest time for me. I just try to get through them. Being a bachelor has its rough spots," Clooney was reported as saying.

So if not for the thrill of seeking out gorgeous women, planning a weekend away and not having to worry how it may affect the significant other, why do men choose to stay single?

The question was recently asked on a popular online blog site, with answers revealing both concern of marrying the wrong person and heartbreak as typical reasons for bachelorhood.

"I'm sick of tired of being cheated on behind my back and hurt - that's why," one blogger wrote.

Another wrote, "Some don't like to answer to anyone. They want the freedom. I am like that as well. I don't ever want to marry again."

And another said, "Some men simply don't want that kind of commitment in their lives."

Sunshine Coast confirmed bachelor Garry Lloyd said it was the freedom of bachelorhood that he most enjoyed.

"You can do what you want, when you want and spend your money on things you want to do," Mr Lloyd, 60, said.

"I build cars, go on holidays and do things for myself and I don't have to consider anyone else, because it is just me."

Mr Lloyd said he had been in many de-facto relationships, although none had ended in marriage.

"I just didn't get down the aisle. I thought about it but then it never seemed to work out," he said.

"Sometimes you love them and they love you and sometimes they love you and you don't love them."

He said many of his close friends had recently joined him in bachelorhood.

"Some of my friends have divorced and they find it really difficult because they have to split up their whole lives - their house, their kids and finances," he said.

Another female blogger, and a psychologist, said she did not see anything wrong with men who feel that a life-long commitment to the same person is not right for them.

"Many people lead rich and fulfilling lives having never married," she said.

I agree holidays do get lonely, with my kids getting older and making their own traditions, relatives in far away places, and me not wanting to travel, I'am starting to understand what lonely can be. George has always had his own holiday traditions but with all of his closest friends married with kids I bet it's tough to get everyone together year after year. Doubt if it would change his mind about settling down for long with one woman. No can't remember GC ever saying life is lonely.

I'm going to guess it was while he was making Confessions of a Dangerous Mind. Crazy busy time and he barely slept.

Actually he mentioned his problem sleeping when he did the Ophrah Winfrey intererview with Julia Roberts a while back. Julia asked him what his favorite time of day was and he said emphatically "early in the morning, I can't sleep."

I think the poor man just can't turn his mind off long enough to drift off to sleep.
