Whether you’re currently attached or not, alone time can be a positive experience. If you find yourself with some solo time on your hands, here are just a few ways to take advantage of having time to yourself.
Curl up with a book
If you’re the type of person who never has time to read and you find yourself with some spare time, why not pick up a paperback? If you don’t have anything waiting to be read, get recommendations from friends, hit the local library or check out the latest bestsellers to find inspiration. Better yet: Organize a book swap with your BFFs. You can unload all the paperbacks collecting dust on your shelf in favor of new reads that your friends have been raving about.
It drives me nuts when strangers rudely interrupt me while I am lost in my book! Being hearing impaired does have its benefits. I simply pretend that I don’t hear them at all to return the favor.
Take yourself out on a date to a museum or art gallery when you find yourself with extra time. No matter where you live, there are bound to be interesting exhibits, art openings or even smaller gallery shows you can check out the next time you’re looking for something to do solo. Doing this is a great way to do something different while rediscovering your city and everything it has to offer.
Spend the time learning another language so that you can avoid people in French and Spanish as well as English.
From facials to body scrubs to massages, sometimes an afternoon at the spa is the perfect solo splurge. You’ll feel gorgeous, refreshed and ready to tackle anything that comes your way. Plus, who doesn’t love getting pampered? If you can’t afford a trip to the spa, create a DIY experience at home.
I never go out without looking perfectly polished! I always take tremendous pride in my appearance unlike many women.
Spending time alone doesn’t have to mean sweatpants and TV dinners. Why not treat yourself to a dinner out or check out a must-see movie on your own? You don’t need to have a date to enjoy a delicious dinner at a restaurant you’ve been meaning to try. Or if dinner without a date isn’t your thing, bring a book to your local coffee shop and sip a latte while you relax and read.
Movies are essential to attend alone! With a theater full of chatterboxes, who needs to purposely bring along another one? I know I don’t.
I usually prefer my own company to that of others. People who love to be alone by nature are not weird! I usually feel suffocated in a relationship which is why I prefer to operate solo most of the time and get bored with suitors quickly. Nothing wrong with that and although it is not the norm, I am hardly the only one. In my experience, men are simply a sheer waste of time and a bad business investment. Somehow or other, he is always the one who gets the best part of the deal at my expense. Just to learn that I would have been that much better off never to have met the guy in the first place. That is the situation with available men, married men are completely dead weight (distressed debt) and should be forced to pay very attractive women serious cash money IN ADVANCE to pay any attention to them at all, nevermind flirt! Ego boosts only come after a big bonus from now on buddy! Married men are desperate for attention and affection from any LIVE female so if you are foolish enough to go there, at least make it financially worth your while. By the way, expensive dinners and drinks, taxi fare, etc. is HARDLY making it financially worth your while and I know so many friends/girls who sadly believe that it does. As a result, these guys get away with stealing the entire deal. Taking into account who most of these men are bound to by contract, YOU should be stealing the deal and then some! Don’t ever give compliments away for free so to speak, as I have in the past. Very naive of me but it was my innocent, kind and religious Catholic upbringing. Newsflash: It doesn’t work in the real world. Look at the transaction like a business deal because that is how men look at EVERYTHING! Available men have much to offer a woman and married men CLAIM they have nothing to offer because they are STUCK in a union already. Available men are not needy at all and married men are extremely needy because they never get any at home or aren’t at all happy with what they get and who they get it from. The basic law of economics.
Make it work to YOUR advantage and never settle for anything less. And in all cases, the man always pays for everything and doesn’t even think of asking his date to open her wallet right? You are a very busy and desirable woman and your time is valuable. Therefore, if a man requests a time slot on your calendar, he pays for it and that doesn’t mean you owe him anything in return! Did you hear that feminists of America??? That is one rule that I am proud to say that I have managed to live by all of these years. Cheapness is a fatal disease not to mention a complete turnoff! Cheapness is the number one reason on David Letterman’s Top Ten Reasons of why you will never get any. Number two is overpromise and underdeliver. Pay attention to yourself and put the time and effort into developing your knowledge and skills because YOU are a great investment! People seem to have a problem understanding that because they are always trying to intervene and “break the ice” with you so as to prevent you from being alone. Half the time I have to wear an old engagement ring on my finger just to keep predator men from annoying me. If a woman is interested in you, trust me, she will give you the signal and let you know. Until then, stop invading her personal space. There is more than enough nonsensical chatter and useless distractions in the world. I hope that this properly explains matters for socially confused individuals. Have a great evening! 🙂
