9 Fun Things You Can Do On Your Own, For All You Single People

Just because you don’t have a date, it doesn’t mean that you can’t still have a good time all by yourself. In fact, there are a lot of things that are often more fun to do alone than with someone else. For instance, if you love to read, there is nothing worse than having someone around who is talking to you and interrupting your reading, just when you get to the best part of the book. Here are some more fun things you don’t always need a date for.

1. Go To The Bar

While it can be a scary thing to walk into a bar by yourself, it is also a great way to meet new people. You don’t even have to socialize if you don’t want to. There is nothing stopping you from going in for a drink and a bit of relaxation.

2. Take A Class

Here is your chance to improve yourself, and you can meet others at the same time. Local community colleges, community centers, etc. offer a variety of classes that anyone can take. See what they have that sparks your interest, and start learning.

3. Go To A Wedding

You may feel uncomfortable going to a wedding without a date, but look at the bright side. There may be someone else there in the same boat as you, and you could end up making a match at the wedding. After all, romance will be in the air.

4. Enjoy A Hobby

Hobbies are a great way to keep busy on those nights when you find yourself dateless. For instance, if you play a musical instrument, this is a good time to jam out on your own. You don’t even have to worry if you hit a few wrong notes, because no one is going to be around to criticize.

5. Go To A Concert

It is fun to go to concerts with a date, but it can be just as much fun to go by yourself. That way, you get to truly enjoy the music without having to worry about talking to your date and wondering if they are having as good of a time as you are.

6. Do A DIY Project

If you have been putting off little jobs around the house, or you have some projects that you are interested in working on, now is just as good a time as any. Since you are by yourself, there won’t be anyone to get in your way, and you can actually get things done.

7. Go For A Walk

Sure, romantic walks along the beach are awesome, but there is also something to be said about enjoying a long walk by yourself. This is your chance to do some serious thinking, and who knows, you may even meet someone while you are out walking. If you have a dog, even better, because you will always end up meeting another dog lover, and who knows where things can go from there.

8. Get Into Volunteering

When you have free time on your hands and no one to spend it with, use that time to help others. There are all kinds of organizations that need volunteers, and if you have any special skills, you can put them to good use by helping others.

9. Bake A Cake

Cooking is a good way to kill time when you are alone. Use this time to try out some new recipes that you haven’t had a chance to try, bake a cake, etc. Just try not to eat everything by yourself so you don’t end up gaining a lot of weight. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
