How long have you been a serious dating-age adult? (I call this 18)
How long, during that time, have you spent single?
How much of that time spent single would you say you were happy and felt good about yourself?
On a scale of 1 to 10, where 1 = thinking you're just crummy, and 10 = thinking you're the awesomest, how confident are you in yourself now?
Comment on how you think time spent on your own might influence how confident you are in yourself.
