It’s important to show yourself just as much love as you show a partner or loved one. That’s why the concept of dating yourself is key! You don’t always need someone else to go out and do fun things with, so try going out and doing them yourself! Here’s a few solo date ideas that you can try to get you started on your journey to dating yourself!


1. Take Yourself to Dinner

Head to your favorite restaurant and treat yourself to dinner! Indulge in your favorite foods while enjoying your own company to experience a traditional dinner date, but with yourself! Make things a little more interesting by getting all dressed up! You know what they say, when you look good, you feel good.


2. Have a Spa Day

A day at the spa is the perfect solo date that allows you to unwind and ease your mind. Pamper yourself with a nice massage, a manicure and/or pedicure, or even a nice facial. Spoiling yourself with a spa day sounds like time well spent to me.


3. Catch a Movie

Is there a movie that you’ve been dying to see but can’t seem to find anyone to tag along? Well, there’s no need to wait any longer! Put on some comfy clothes, grab a few snacks, and go on a solo date to the movies. Besides, who wants to talk to anyone during a movie anyway?

4. Go to the Farmer’s Market

Get some fresh air and head to your local farmer’s market! There’s no better way to enjoy a warm Saturday morning than strolling through a farmer’s market, picking up a few fresh fruits, vegetables, and baked goodies to check off your grocery list, and browsing through some of the products that your local small businesses have to offer!


5. Take Yourself Shopping

This next idea is arguably one of the best. Taking yourself on a shopping spree is the ultimate solo date because there’s no one to rush you or tell you you’re spending too much! So, grab your wallet and hit the streets!


6. Create a Solo Date Idea Jar

Get those creative juices flowing and make a solo date idea jar! The fun doesn’t stop at the ideas that I’ve given you. Take these ideas, and a few others that you come up with, write them on a piece of paper, and throw them in a cute jar to select from when you’re feeling like you’re in the mood for a little time to yourself!
