Q. What do you love most about being single?

Ashlee Roland, 21 | CNA
“Freedom. I like to be able to do what I want to do without asking permission. I like to be able to go out with my girls and not explain what I am doing to anybody.”

AJ Tuhro, 28 | Works for a major airline
“I like the freedom I have to do what I want when I want. I don’t have to schedule or make sure it’s OK.”

Dominique, 49 | Aircraft maintenance engineer
“I’m a big traveler, and I am able to travel and do what I want as I wish. That’s also why I’m single, because I travel so much.”

Q. What quality is a deal breaker in members of the opposite sex?

Jennifer Draper, 21 | Student
“Someone who is unmotivated. I’m really motivated, and it’s something attractive in someone when they are motivated about their job or school.”

Rinda Mooney, 49 | Banking
“Dishonesty is a deal breaker. If you’re single, say so. If you’re not, say so. No relationship can be built on a lie.”
