Being single is not a reason to stay indoors on weekends or public holidays. You deserve to have fun irrespective of whether you have a partner or not. This is not the time to be gloomy and sad about your single status. Rather, it is the time to get up and explore the world around you. There are so many fun things to do by yourself this period of your life. Some of them include:
- Treat Yourself
Most single people find the idea of taking themselves out on a date very awkward. Although it may seem strange, it is one of the best ways to find happiness alone. There are so many places you can go on a date all by yourself. One of the best options is to go to a hotel near you and treat yourself to a nice and affordable buffet. Sheraton Lagos Hotel, for instance, offers tasty and mouth watery buffet to guests at an affordable price.
- Go Shopping
Spoil yourself by going shopping this period of your life. Buy yourself that dress you have been day dreaming about all this while. You can also go shopping in the company of your single friends to make it more interesting and memorable.
- Travel Solo
Another fun thing to do when you are single is to travel solo. There is no better time to explore the world than when you are single and free. You can start by touring points of interest close to you before embarking on long distance trips. You can travel by air or by road. But for an interstate trip, I will suggest you go by road so you don’t miss out on the interesting sights by the road side.
- Go Kayaking
There is nothing more fun than going kayaking. It is the perfect fun and relaxing activity to do all by yourself. Apart from offering you a chance to get close to nature, kayaking is also a good way to relieve stress. It is great for aerobic exercise and offers upper body conditioning. So you see, going kayaking is actually a good decision to make when you are single.
- Read a Book
If you have not had time to read ‘On Becoming’ by Toke Makinwa, then this is the perfect time to do that. There is no better time to relax with a good book than when you are single and have no worries. Avoid reading academic books this season; it is not the time to get too serious, just relax, read and enjoy!
- Host a Singles Party
If you prefer the company of other people to being alone, then host a party for your single friends. You don’t have to go overboard in your budget for the party. A few drinks and finger foods will do. The aim of the party is for you and your fellow single friends to unwind and have fun while enjoying the company of each other.
