The single’s guide to a great social life!

 Whether you’ve been single for a while now or you’re nursing some recent heartache, it can feel as though relationships are constantly being thrown in your face. From tables designed for two, to the expectation that you’ll always do things as a ‘pair’. It’s no wonder you might feel like hibernating just to avoid feeling like you’re on your own.

And while it’s easy to wallow in being alone, there is the other option - and that’s to thrive alone! Being single gives you the opportunity to do the things you really want to do and enjoy experiences without someone else holding you back. Once you begin to embrace your single life, you’ll discover just how much fun it can be.

Take some time to build a routine

Being single can be an adjustment, especially if you were in a long-term relationship or lived with your partner. If you find yourself feeling lost, then building a routine can be one way to help you regain some balance and prioritize your needs.

Start with your health. Building a healthy routine can help you keep active and energized, ready to help you enjoy all the experiences that are about to come your way.

Say yes to as much as possible

Sometimes, you’ll want to stay at home on a Saturday night watching Netflix and eating your weight in pizza and ice cream. And that’s fine, just don’t make it every Saturday night. 

Saying yes to plans is a great way to stay busy and build a fantastic social life. From nights out on the town to a hike in the hills, say yes to spending time with people and trying new experiences. This is your chance to embrace your independence and do all the things you want to do.

Look at events taking place in your local area

When you’re in a relationship, it’s easy to fall into a routine. You can find yourself doing the same things day in, day out, and could even miss out on some of the new and exciting things that are happening all around you. 

Check local listings and discover all of the amazing events taking place in your local area. From festivals and gigs to community events, there could be some great things for you to discover. Whether you go alone or with friends, it’s a great chance to feel a part of your community and discover new interests and hobbies.

Plan trips, either alone or with friends

Being single frees you from a lot of responsibilities, which leaves you with a great excuse to travel. Plan trips and visit places you’ve always wanted to explore - you don’t need to wait for someone to go with you. Traveling alone can be daunting, but it doesn’t have to be. There are a lot of solo travel tips to help you make the most of things.

As well as solo travel, make time to travel with friends. Those trips can become few and far between once you’re in a relationship, so get on the road and make some memories with your nearest and dearest. 

Be spontaneous

Some of the best nights are the ones you didn’t plan. So why not be more spontaneous? Going with the flow can be freeing, and can lead to some of your most memorable experiences. As long as you’re safe, and you feel comfortable, a little spontaneity will keep things exciting and help you have a lot of fun too.

Try new things

When you’re in a relationship, you can end up with a lot of shared hobbies and interests. From eating in the same restaurants to watching certain types of movies, things can get very stale after a while. Now that you’re flying solo, it’s time to re-discover the things you enjoy and to try new things. Be adventurous with everything from food to fitness classes - there’s a whole world of things for you to discover!

Use some of your time to help others

Volunteering is an extremely valuable use of your time. There are a lot of ways to volunteer your time that can make a big difference to others. It’s also a great chance to meet some new people and could open a lot of doors to new experiences and opportunities.

Make dating fun

There’s a lot of fun to be had while you’re single, but that doesn’t mean you should rule out dating altogether! Date in a way that’s fun and without pressure, like speed dating, it will make things less nerve-wracking, and it will help you enjoy the experience.

Check out meetup opportunities near you that provide fun and relaxed dating experiences. Go with friends and see it as another opportunity to socialize - you never know where it might lead!

Enjoy spending time with friends and family

Life isn’t just about being in a relationship with one person, there are a lot of people in your life that whom you have relationships. Embrace spending time with your friends and family and focus on strengthening those relationships. Surround yourself with love, you deserve it. 

Be selfish!

Finally, take the time to be selfish! Embracing your social life gives you the chance to do things for yourself, without worrying about what others think. It’s a time for self-discovery and to be comfortable with yourself, so if there was ever a time to be selfish in your life, this is it. As you get to know yourself, you’ll get a better sense of what you want in life and from your relationships, helping you gear yourself up to date someone you deserve.

Making the most of your single life can help you embrace all kinds of new and wonderful experiences that may not have been possible when you were in a relationship. Take your time to enjoy this new lifestyle, it could bring you some of your best experiences to date!
