So now that Valentine’s Day is over, I’ve had some time to reflect on the different reactions to the holiday that I saw among friends and customers. My single friends had some widely varying responses to their thoughts on their relationship status. Many tended towards self-pity and even anger at being single, but others… oh man, they absolutely ROCKED the single lifestyle. To them, being single is “living the dream!” I liked this approach much better and decided to take a few notes to share with you about how you can kick ass at being single.
Don’t apologize for being awesome.
The basic idea about rocking your singlehood is to never apologize for your status. Your singlehood is about figuring out what makes you tick, all while enjoying the luxury of putting yourself first. Not only will this make you stronger and more confident, but once you’re tied down, you may never get the chance to live the single life dream again!
Focus on your friends.
While spending time with a significant other is amazing, it can often cut into your time with friends. Now’s your chance to take advantage of having more free time to create tons of amazing memories with some of the people you love most and not have to worry about putting stress on a romantic relationship. I love getting together with my girls for dinners, drinks, or catching a movie. Even better, get the ladies together for a Pure Romance party for an amazing girls’ night in!
Put YOU first.
I think my husband nailed this one on the head before he met me. He would come home from work, play video games all night, drink beer, and eat pizza. When he wanted to see a movie, he did. When he wanted to sleep late on the weekend, he did. He LOVED the bachelor lifestyle in his tiny little apartment (he just loved me a lot more.) When you’re flying solo, putting yourself first isn’t selfish—it’s a rare opportunity to explore new things and to do all of the activities that may be limited once you are spending time with a significant other.
See the World!
Travel. The world is your oyster! You can go anywhere, anytime you want. Go with friends, or go alone and make friends along the way. I am always amazed by two of my good friends that go on amazing adventures alone just because they can. One of them even wants to backpack around in Australia with no plans… she just wants to enjoy life as it comes!
Live your BEST life.
Dream big and plan out how you want your life to go! Satisfied with your career? Awesome—go for that amazing promotion that’ll take you to the next level. Think you might want to go back to school? Now’s your chance! Whatever it is, do something to enrich your life: enroll in art classes, give back to the community, or take up yoga.
Play the field.
Boys aren’t the only ones who can date around! Play the field, flirt with a stranger, and work your magic on the dance floor—singlehood is YOUR time to shine! Enjoy all of the different types of people who turn you on and interest you. It doesn’t necessarily need to be a string of one-night stands, but there are plenty of people out there to entertain you and enjoy life with you. And with all of the technology available today, it’s never been easier! Download the Tinder app, message your old crush, and flirt your way to free drinks—no commitments, no judgments. You’re single, and fabulous.
