12 Things Every Single Girl Should Do

I’m in a long-term relationship right now, but before I met my current boyfriend, I was single for almost four years. At first, I had just ended a five-year relationship, and the idea of being single terrified me. I didn’t want to be alone, I felt like a loser, and I was convinced that I would never meet another person who wanted to seriously date me. For a little while, I was so miserable that I had to start going to therapy.

Eventually, I adjusted to my single life… and I started taking advantage of it. Instead of sitting in my room alone, I made new friends. I started going out and doing things almost every night, where I let myself have a really good time without worrying about getting in touch with a guy. I made the most of my lounge time as well by taking long naps, watching tons of TV shows and movies, and reading a lot of good books. I realized that when I was in a relationship, I had never had this much time to devote to myself and my friends. It was nice!

Honestly, I look back on my single years with a smile. I had so many experiences (from bad to good) where I learned so much. I built incredible bonds with my friends, and I really pushed myself to be a better person during that time.

I hear a lot of you girls complaining about being single and not having a boyfriend. I know it sounds patronizing to say, “enjoy it!” but I don’t mean it that way. I honestly want you to enjoy this alone time! Once you enter a relationship, things will be different. You won’t have as much time for yourself or your friends. You won’t be able to do some of the things below. So why not enjoy them now? Here are 12 things every single girl out there should do before she finds a relationship… if she finds one. Because they’re not for everyone, and that’s okay.

Are you single? Do you agree or disagree with this list? What do you disagree about? What did I forget to include? Tell me in the comments!

    I am not single by choice, I’ve been single forever because guys don’t like me or find me attractive in any way so suggesting I go out and have a bunch of sex, flirt a bunch, and date random people is not helping because I don’t know If that’s possible.

    Having sex with guys you’re not seriously dating??
    I’d rather blow a thousand liters of bubbles!! I don’t want to be whore-ish, so I don’t agree with it.

        So you just randomly insult me? Just because I gave my opinion? Everyone has the right to give their own opinion, so don’be such a toddler on the internet.
        If I say that I think that hooking up with a lot of people is kinda whore-ish, it’s my way to think. Like it or don’t like it.
        So calling me an ignorant dildo was the best option maybe? Idk if I affected women to be less sexua, but at least I shared my opinion.
