How to date yourself
|October 27, 2011||Posted by under Frugal Entertainment|
Why is it that we rely on others to make us happy? Isn’t it up to us to do that? When is the last time you took yourself out on a sexy romantic date? Seriously. An opportunity came up this week for me to take myself out on a date. My partner is away, my Airbnb guests will likely be entertaining themselves and I have the entire evening to do something fun on my own. I absolutely LOVE alone time as I need a lot of it, so I am psyched! I used to do this a lot in the past, I’ve always been a big believer of taking care of myself and not wait for others to do it for me. You are awesome, so plan an amazing fun date for yourself too!
I am not a big planner but here is what I am hoping my evening will look like:
1. Take myself out to dinner (Haven’t decided on a location yet, any suggestions?) - I am contemplating going super cheap on dinner but going to a ritzy dessert place afterwards…decisions!
2. Manicure/Pedicure booked at 7:45 (I paid $19 for this – Groupon!)
3. Watching documentary on Netflix (4 months, 3 weeks & 2 days – I am learning Romanian so it is imperative that I watch as many Romanian films as possible at the moment) I’ll be making some homemade popcorn with nutritional yeast and earth balance- I don’t eat that microwave sketchy sodium-filled stuff!
There are so many things you can do for yourself: Walks in the park, beach, taking yourself out for tea or bowling perhaps? The choices are endless. Think of something you’d love to do & do it by yourself. Watch for coupons or discounts to do fun things around town like art galleries, shows, theater and music. You can even just get take out and watch a movie, it doesn’t have to be all ritzy.
