    I'm happy being single.

    I wonder if "1" means "2", "3" or "4".
    I wonder if "being" is gerund or participle.

    1. I'm happy being single.
    2. I'm happy about being single.
    3. I'm happy with being single.
    4. I'm happy that I'm single.

    1. I'm happy being single.
    2. I'm happy about being single.
    3. I'm happy with being single.
    4. I'm happy that I'm single.
    1 means 3. 'Happy' here means content or satisfied.
    In 2 and 4, there's a more positive connotation of 'happy'.

    So, I am closing this unnecessary thread. Please do not repeat questions in separate threads, wowenglish1. It wastes people's time, and can cause confusion.
