Being single means having freedom to do what you want, make mistakes, not give a damn about it, and live life as you please.
But, have you used the full potential of being a single lady or there is still so much to experience before you settle down?
Surely, meeting the one has its own charm and will feel awesome, but in the meantime, you have to make sure that you’ve lived your life to the fullest because regrets are our biggest enemies.
Just like the following quote by H. Jackson Brown Jr. says: “When you look back on your life, you’ll regret the things you didn’t do more than the ones you did.”
I guess that sounds pretty reasonable and motivating. So, to make sure that you’ve rocked your single life, here is the list of things every girl must do before she settles down!
Discover your true self
What does it mean to discover your true self? It means getting to know your inner fears, wishes, desires, and more.
It’s all about discovering who you really are, accepting yourself, and living the life you please.
Believe me, there is nothing more satisfying than that. And when you meet the right one, you will certainly not have that much time to focus only on yourself.
Also, to be able to love others, you have to learn to love yourself first!
Spend lots of time with your family and friends
Sometime in the near future when you’re no longer single, you will automatically decrease your time spent with your friends and family because you will mostly be with your special one.
So, now is the right time to decide to hang out with them a lot, plan vacations with them, and show them how grateful you are for having them.
Travel the world
If you don’t travel the world now when you’re young and free, when will you?
Learn about new cultures, visit mysteriously magnificent places, learn about new perspectives, and widen your horizons.
Travelling the world on your own or with your friends and family will be a beautiful experience that you will remember for as long as you live and, most importantly, it will enrich your life beyond measure.
Fuck the makeup, perfect clothes, and perfect hair! Party hard like it’s your last night on earth and go in pajamas if you have to.
Forget about your appearance and just focus on how you feel.
Absorb the music, drink your favorite drinks, kiss a stranger, and party some more.
Of course, you may continue partying with your special one as well in the future, but nothing can beat “single lady having the time of her life.”
Make sure that you’re financially secure
I know, I should have put this one before ‘Travel the world’ but it is still not too late (if you’ve continued reading, of course).
Travel the world and party hard, but also make sure that you’re financially secure, even though all of these are pretty much inseparable.
Finish your school, learn some new skills, start your own business, or just get a job that you’ll enjoy doing (if possible).
Because you have to be able to take care of yourself first, right?
Learn a new language / languages
If you’re a language lover, you should definitely start learning a new language.
Today, you can do it easily by visiting some online sites or downloading apps where they send you daily tests and lessons on the desired language.
Also, you can learn it from watching TV shows in another language or even better, by visiting the country where they speak the language you would like to learn.
There are many options and the benefits will be innumerable, too.
If you feel like going for a walk at 4 a.m., then why not? What’s stopping you?
Be spontaneous; do whatever you want and whatever feels right at the moment. Don’t overthink too much about what other people will think of your actions – people will always think.
Have a one night stand
Meet that handsome stranger, kiss him passionately, and then wake up in his bedroom realizing that you’ve had the perfect night.
Have a one night stand and enjoy every second of it because there will be plenty of time for dedication, acting responsible, and spending time with the chosen one.
Living alone means having your own rules, cooking what you want, watching what you want, and going wherever you want.
Living alone means you don’t have to worry about whether you’ll insult someone with your actions or appear selfish.
When you spend some time on your own, you will learn a lot about yourself and your habits, which is essential when it comes to living with someone else in future.
Expand your network
Meet new people of different positions and occupations, give them your phone number, and start gradually expanding your network.
In today’s world, having connections is key.
And it is much easier to maintain them when you’re single because you won’t make anyone jealous and you definitely won’t have to explain yourself to anyone else.
