Here we are again in the midst of cuffing season and some of us are still left with no bae and no prospects. Brace yourself for those “in a relationship” status updates, the cute cuffing pictures, and late night date snaps.
With all the love in the air, it can be a little over bearing for a single person at times. We tell ourselves we can’t go out because we have no one to go with.
But who says you can’t go by yourself?
Self-dating has always been a form of taboo for fear of appearing lonely or pathetic. Let’s be real, very few mind being seen out alone.
It should go without saying; there will not always be someone there for you to go out with. There will, however, always be new experiences waiting for you to embark on. With this in mind, the best thing to do is get out there and just do it.
Think outside the box. No need to limit your solo-date to the usual dinner and movie. Attend paint and sip, indulge in a spa, visit an exhibit at a museum, or try a new restaurant, the possibilities are endless when it comes to treating yourself. It also makes for great conversation when discussing all the things you’ve done.
And lets be real, these solo dates can easily lead to meeting new people, even possibly bae.
Learning to go out on your own is one of the many steps on the path to self-discovery. It all boils down to taking an initiative in loving yourself, without waiting for someone else to do it for you.
Use this time to learn all about the things you like to do and when the time is right you’ll be ready to share these experiences with someone. For now, take this time to focus on you.
