I really like these fish and am thinking about them for my peaceful community tank. I would rather have just one, a female, so I don't have to worry about their mating when I don't want them to or have aggression from guarding a bubblenest/fry. Would their quality of life go down at all if there was just one female as the only Gourami in the tank as compared to when kept in male/female pairs?

Also, what are the best ways to sex them?

You'll find the answer on sexing in our profile; click the shaded name, Honey Gourami. Profiles are under the second tab from the left in the blue bar across the top of the page.

Depending upon tank size, this species does well in a small group, or in a pair. Single fish (the male is more colourful) on its own is fine--though I can't speak for the gourami if it will feel lonely or not.

So no has ever seen a positive change in a Honey Gourami compared to being kept alone or in a pair?
