    being single

    I wonder if there is subtle difference between "1" and "2".
    If no, I would like to know the difference between "2" and "3".
    1. I am happy I am single.
    2. I am happy being single.
    3. I am happy to be single.

    You may get other thoughts on this, but my feeling is that there are no significant differences.

    Re: being single

    There is no subtle difference; all three convey the same idea and will be understood as such.
