+1 for thorough answer and providing an excellent candidate for a final answer. I don't know if this would be first, because of the ambiguity, but it may be a clear second.

That's very derogatory.

That wasn't a major criteria. That's why I said "hopefully".

That's funny! My programmer friend came up with the same answer. A "Singleton" in programming is an object that can only have one instance. So in nerdy circles, it's pretty funny. +1 for research, well written response and a good suggestion.

+1 for great thoughts, again... "relationship-free" is pretty good actually. But it does have one potentially negative connotation: It sounds like, "I'm free from the pain that all you suckers have to endure by having a relationship." Which isn't totally apparent, but it may be interpreted that way. I think that if you describe something in terms of it "not being something else", then you may always get that connotation. Do you know what I mean?

It's not "deciding not to get into a relationship so you can have sex with whoever you want". It's "deciding to be single because it's more enjoyable and a good life-long decision". There is no reference to sex. In fact, it would mean likely not having any sex.

That's pretty close. But I think that has more to do with abstaining from having sex. And the choosing to be single is almost exclusively for religious reasons. dictionary.reference.com/browse/celibate

@Monica: Agreed. Even with the word "confirmed" before it, the words "bachelor" or "bachelorette" imply "I'm still looking". I was referring to someone that realizes the costs of being in a relationship and is perfectly content to be single.

+1 for good suggestions. I'm not sure there is a word though. Maybe you could make one up!
