What’s that? Yes, Single Girl Confidential is back! Pre-holidays, Arielle and I were chatting and suddenly, magic was happening and we were lining up posts on our ongoing series.
This time we’re tacking the idea of single solo dates. You can check out Arielle’s post on this over here.
So, single solo dates. I love them.
Just because I don’t have a plus-one on a Friday or Saturday night, that doesn’t mean I don’t like going out to dinner or to a movie. Sure, I can do these things with friends, but when they’re busy, it’s time for a single lady night out.
And I treat myself right. If I’ve had a long week or rough Friday, I will just grab dinner on the way home, put on Netflix or clean out the DVR and put my feet up. I don’t mind a quiet Friday night in so, this sounds like a perfect lady date.
But when I want to treat myself and get a little fancy, well, that requires some planning. It involves a little make up, maybe some pre-activity drinks and then a nice stroll to the theater or concert of play. And then, I put myself in a cab home. Just because it’s a solo night out, doesn’t mean I skimp on getting home safe.
This may sound like just a regular night out or something that doesn’t need a “solo date” label but I find that thinking of it that way just keeps me in a positive frame of mind.
When I go on a date, I just, try harder. I put in the extra effort, put on the nicer outfits and jewelry, put on full eye make up and just get out there. Sometimes, that first step is the hardest.
And just because a guy won’t see it, doesn’t mean I should not do it for me.
So what about you? Do you do single lady nights out or solo dates?
