Why is it that as singles, do we think we have to wait around for someone to ask us out on a date?
When Friday comes around and we’re dateless, we think that it’s nothing for us to do. So we sit at home.
Well I want to remind you that you don’t have to wait around for someone to call you and ask you out on a date. You can go out and enjoy yourself regardless. Being single doesn’t mean you stop living, no way it’s quite the opposite. This is the time where you live life to it’s fullest.
Even if that means taking yourself on a date.
Here are 5 dates you can try as a single and really enjoy.
1. Go to the movies.
That’s something I really enjoy. I can remember the first time I went to the movies by myself. No one wanted to go and it was a movie I really wanted to see. So I purchased my ticket and headed to the movies. It was one of the most liberating things I’ve ever done. I even found myself smiling as I left the theater. So the next time you want to catch a movie, don’t call anybody, just go.. alone.
2. Go to dinner.
Ha! Yes! My sister thinks it’s so weird that I go to dinner alone but I love it. I can’t tell you how many restaurants I’ve just strolled into and sat down by myself and ate. It’s actually a great way to enjoy your own company. As singles, we forget that it’s okay to learn about ourselves. There have been times I’ve even brought along a book I really wanted to read or I bring a notebook and just write down my thoughts. I mean when you’re by yourself, you can do whatever you want at the table.
3. Spend a night at a fancy hotel.
That’s right! Get the penthouse! Sometimes, it’s just good to get out of the same old environment. Let your hair done (for my ladies) and pretend that you don’t have a care in the world. Make sure you get a hotel with good amenities. Indoor Pool, Jacuzzi, a great shower/bathtub, and oh a nice view. I can imagine it right now. Let me put this on my list.
4. Get a massage.
As singles, we can be tensed. Probably because we’re always looking around and searching for our mates. So I suggest you call and set up an appointment for a nice massage. Up the ante and get one of the good ones, the one you probably wouldn’t ever pay for otherwise. And make sure you choose the hour timeframe. Just enjoy the quietness. Do one of those mind exercises, where you clear it and not think about anything other than what’s going on in the moment.
5. Take a dance class.
I mean why not?! You can be on very own version of Dancing with the Stars and the good thing is you don’t have to worry about anybody judging you. So grab your dancing shoes and sign up for that dance class you never got to take. Whether it be a hip hop class or tango, just go for it. I promise you it’ll be a night you’ll never forget.
There’s endless things you can do during your season of being single. Whether you choose to take on new adventure like white water rafting or simply doing something easy-going like camping, just do it. Take advantage of this time to do exactly what you want to do.
I look at it like this, either you can be happily single or you can be a depressed single. And if you’re walking around depressed, I don’t believe that will attract a mate. So get rid of your reservations and fears of doing things alone and embark on a journey of living life in the most fulfilling way possible.
