20 Dates For Singles To Go On SoloAs I sit here writing this, I am sitting at a local Starbucks, drinking my favorite Cinnamon Almond Milk Macchiato, on a date with myself. I wasn’t always able to take myself on dates because I was mortified of going out in public places alone. Once I decided to really dedicate myself to being single and focusing on being a better version of myself it started to get a little easier. Now I am so confident that I will walk into a 5 star restaurant with a book and demand to be sat at a table, not the bar because I am there alone.

Taking yourself on dates might be outside of your comfort zone, but once you do it, you will fall in love with it. Even though I wrote this for singles, I truly believe that even if you are in a relationship you should take yourself on solo dates. Granted when single a person will probably go on more solo dates then when in a relationship. However, it is important for everyone to spend some time with themselves.

  1. Go to a concert you have been wanting to see. It doesn’t matter if you have great seats, or even get lawn seats. Sing along, dance around, have fun!
  2. Buy yourself a new video game, go home, turn your phone off, and order delivery. Enjoy playing your new game in peace.
  3. Take your dog mans best friend to the dog park for the afternoon.
  4. Don’t have a dog? Go to a local dog shelter. Offer to walk the dogs to give them some love and exercise.
  5. A long drive. Bring your favorite playlist. Roll the windows down and feel the wind on your face. Taking a long scenic drive with some great music is extremely relaxing.
  6. Go to a beach or local park and watch the sunset. Sunsets aren’t just for couples and cliche proposals; they’re beautiful and relaxing for everybody. Get there  20 minutes before sun down. Bring a good snack, a book or journal and sit back and enjoy.
  7. Take yourself zip-lining somewhere both thrilling and beautiful.
  8. Take a class nobody would want to do with you – pottery, improv comedy, cooking, or woodworking. Immerse yourself in it.
  9. Go people watching. This is one of my favorite. Just make sure it is somewhere appropriate so you are not that creepy person. Put down the phone and grab a cup of coffee and sit back and watch. Create stories about the people passing by.
  10. An overnight getaway. Who doesn’t say they need more vacation time? There’s no reason why you can’t book yourself a romantic evening away for one, even if it’s a local hotel and all you do is order room service, take advantage of the pool and gym, and sleep in.
  11. Go for a bike ride. Ride your bike around town or find a great scenic route or trail.
  12. Get lost in a museum. Whether it’s discovering new artworks or marveling at an ancient piece of history, the experience is very personal. Go at your own pace and feel what moves you.
  13. Go to a comedy club.  Head down to your local comedy club and laugh until your ribs hurt. You won’t regret it.
  14. Go see a live show. Wicked, Les Miserables, Fiddler On The Roof, these are just a few of the shows I’ve seen and I loved them all!
  15. Go see a movie your friends wouldn’t normally go to with you. And you don’t have to share the popcorn.
  16. Lay in the grass and relax watching the clouds. Make sure to turn your phone off.
  17. Go to the planetarium.
  18. Find a local food festival and enjoy guiltless indulgent eating.
  19. Do something festive for whatever holiday is coming up (Drive around and look at Halloween decorations or Christmas lights).
  20. Sitting by a window as it’s raining outside and you are curled up with a glass of wine and a good book.

Taking yourself on solo dates will help you to fall more in love with yourself. You deserve that whether you’re in a relationship or not. I  actually believe that it’s sometimes even more important when you’re in a relationship,  so you don’t lose your own identity within the relationship. When I go on solo dates, I get to know myself better. I allow myself to experience things in a new way. So, pick one, or try them all. Go take yourself on a solo date! Above all, enjoy yourself.
