A trending survey suggests young millennials prefer to be single.

FOX's Krystin Goodwin explains:

Research suggests young millennials prefer the single status...

For its "Single Not Sorry Survey", dating app Tinder, polled over 1,000 singles between the age of 18 and 25... 72 percent say they've "made a conscious decision" to stay out of a relationship for a period of time, many unapologetic, noting it gives them a sense of independence and empowerment.

33 percent say flying solo allows them to have more time to focus on personal happiness and their career. More than half, 55 percent, agree fellow singles are more fun.

40 percent of those surveyed say they aren't closed off to long-term relationships, but are not willing to settle for the wrong person
