People, especially Chinese believe living alone is not by choice but by circumstances. In other words, if you are alone because you can't find a boy/girlfriend. Therefore you are pathetic and a loser in life. Few people see living alone as a way of life.
If you choose living alone as a life, what will you say to people who ask you to find a girl/boyfriend?

Okay, I disagree as each case is different.  Take for example the following scenario.

The guy:  Masters degree candidate.  Work takes him to wonderful locations, he is earning many times the average salary:

The girl:  Masters degree candidate.  They meet while she is doing her undergrad degree, is from another country.

The scenario: They meet in her second year of her undergrad degree.  They fall in love, a deep and wonderful love, they are soulmates and love each other with a depth and passion that few people can really understand.   They become engaged and she is killed a week later while crossing a pedestrian crossing.  His world collapses and he throws himself in to study and work, this helps alleviate the pain he feels.  His career really takes off and before he knows it he is in his 40s and single, finding a girlfriend is difficult in his country as most of the good women are taken and the dating scene is for the under 30s.  

If such a guy a looser or pathetic?

This is quite sad to think there are lonely people, there is nothing worse than coming home to an empty home. The great joy is to come home and hear your partners voice and feel their presents

Well if you are uncomfortable with the dating scene as I was after my late wife died you can ask around with your friends and see if they know any good prospects, there is always the online services if you have access to that but the key is to get out there if you hide at home you will never find someone.
