Are Solo Dates Healthy?

Yes solo dates are very much healthy! Dating yourself is an act of self love and self care.

I think it’s easy for us to get carried away waiting for our friend or our boyfriend to be in the picture before we can start living our lives. Solo dates give us the permission to live life on our terms, it’s the act of loving yourself and enjoying your solitude.

Plus, solo dates helps you to become more confident in yourself. It might be intimidating at first, but it does get easier over time.

When I first started dating myself intentionally, I went big and I did something so out of my comfort zone – I went to a concert alone, not just any concert it was a Chris Brown’s concert. My anxiety was through the roof and honestly if I hadn’t paid for it, I would have cancelled because my outfit didn’t even go to plan.

I ended up going to the concert because I decided that if I didn’t go, I would regret it and the point of going really is to have fun! I ended up going and I met 2 lovely ladies while I was there – to say I had a blast was an understatement. It was easily one of the best nights of my life and I felt even more confident because I did it.

How Do You Act On A Solo Date?

You might feel anxious when going out on a solo date for the first time, but you definitely do not want to act like you are. Find something to soothe your anxiety, maybe create an empowering music or repeative positive affirmations in your mind.

Ultimately, you want to remind yourself why you are doing this;

  • Maybe you don’t have loads of friends to go out with.
  • You might want to put yourself out there more, you’re always in the house.
  • Develop your confidence and self love.
  • Maybe even meet more people eventually.

When you feel awkward about going out alone, you need to remember that other people are probably too busy having fun to worry about you and if they are so bothered by you dating yourself, they are most likely insecure.
