Fun Solo Dates

Fun Solo Dates

With February coming up, it seems like the red and pink hearts are just everywhere, taunting you and just screaming in your face, “Haha you’re gonna die alone.” It’s easy to get down in the dumps and just rot in your bed watching a romcom and crying over your most recent situationship, but this year it’s time to practice some self-love and take yourself on a nice solo date. Here are my top 3 tried-and-true best solo date ideas. 

  1. Take yourself to your favorite restaurantPhoto courtesy of Wego Travel Blog

As much as it may seem daunting to go to a restaurant alone, it can be so relaxing to enjoy a meal alone. You don’t have to worry about judgements from your date about your meal of choice or the way you chew. It’s the ideal occasion to wear that cute top you’ve been saving and take some cute mirror selfies in the bathroom. You’re also only paying for yourself, so it’s a perfect time to splurge on that surf & turf you’ve been eyeing up for months. You can also get your favorite dessert and not have to worry about splitting it. 


2. Take a class

While you’re in your independence era, it’s time to discover new hobbies. Whether you are interested in dance, pottery, or cooking, there are all sorts of options of classes you can take. If you’re more of a homebody, there’s plenty of YouTube videos, or if you’re more of an extrovert, there’s plenty of options through local businesses and recreational centers. No matter what your preference is, I’m sure you will have so much fun! 


3. Volunteer

Nothing feels better than helping someone else, so take your free time that would otherwise be filled with tears and go spend that time working to help your favorite cause. My personal favorite way to volunteer is with the youth teams at the recreational center, but you can really focus on wherever your interests are, whether that’s at the retirement home, homeless shelter, or animal shelter.
