Most of us have spent the time to do some planning for a date. But I guess most people, probably you as well, haven’t dated the most important person in our life. Yes, that’s you.
This is one of the biggest benefits of being single. It literally forces you to date yourself and learns to love yourself. So don’t beat yourself up if you find yourself single on special occasions like Valentine’s Day or your birthday. It can be the best day of the year if you plan your self-date correctly.
We have rounded up 21 self-date ideas that will change how you feel about being single.
