How to Make the Most Out of Being Single AF

Ladies, you're probably familiar with how dating goes. Going out on dates, getting to know the other person, learning about their likes and dislikes, then becoming an inseparable item. Relationships move forward in one of two ways — becoming a successful, lifelong partnership, or eventually leaving you once again with that "single" status. After being single for a bit, you begin to heal and feel ready to get back out into the dating world, starting the whole cycle once more.

Although it's great to get back into the dating game, it's also an amazing feeling to come out of that dreadful love cycle and give yourself some you time. Being single might not seem as poetic or romantic as being in a relationship, but "dating yourself" AKA giving some time to be your ~single self~ can be so beneficial in the long run!

Get to know yourself

Learn what you like and what you dislike. When you are in a relationship, especially one that isn't quite good for you, it's easy to get stuck in your routine and forget about exploring your own interests. Don't be afraid to take some time out and try out some new passions and hobbies. 

Figure out your goals

Just like you have goals in a relationship with someone else, you also have to have goals for yourself. Do you want to learn how to love yourself more? Do you need more confidence in yourself? Find out what you are missing and plan out what you need to do to bring these goals into your life.

Take yourself out on a date

There's absolutely no shame in taking yourself out on your own perfect date. Break out that perfect date night outfit or pick the perfect makeup look and treat this like you would a regular date. Where have you been wanting to go out? Want to go to that trendy restaurant that you've been dying to eat at? Want to see that movie everyone's talking about? Treat yourself right and just go for it.

Take care of yourself

Spend some alone time just for yourself. Get a massage, get a mani/pedi, take a nice long bath, read a book, or throw on your fave Netflix movie. Don't forget to take care of your body by exercising, eating healthy, meditating — whatever works for you and makes you happy.

Take a risk

Get into the risk-taking mode, whether it's taking up a new yoga class, baking a new recipe, or volunteering somewhere new. Or, if you're really feeling daring, face your fears. Try zip-lining, skydiving, or anything that pushes you out of your comfort zone.
