Tinder, Hinge, Happn, OkCupid, Bumble, the list goes on! It’s so easy, almost too easy, to get a date whenever you want. 5 minutes to secure a date? Challenge accepted. I’m all for dates, but don’t forget to date yourself!

1. Netflix & chill… with yourself.

It’s all the rage right now, but instead of watching some emotional heart-tugger and crying into the brawny shoulder of some tinder hulk, why not weep sentimentally into your own shoulder? You’ll be just that much more intimate with yourself. Go get that self-knowledge.   

2. Mani Pedi.

Treat yo self. 

There’s just something about laying back in a chair with someone attentively going over the little flaws of your fingers and toes, fixing them like they had Tide-Yo-Go Pen but for your body.

Dates are stressful, so lay back for a night and let your extremities be worshipped like the treasures that they definitely aren’t.

3. Cook yourself a fancy as f*ck meal.

Make yourself something so ridiculously over the top that it takes like 8 courses to eat. It’s time to fall in love with yourself all over again.

4. Base Jumping.

If you think about it, going on a first date with someone off a social dating app could be potentially dangerous. Like, how do you know if they’re a serial killer or not?!? Danger is sexy, so why not redirect it into something more obviously dangerous?

Grab a parachute and sprint off the top of your closest big building. Think about all those endorphins.

5. Wine night with a book instead.

50 shades of wine, am I right? Real men on real dates never seem to match up to their profile photos were they portray themselves as dashing intellectuals traveling the world to save humanity from itself. They’re just always so bleh in person.

But you know who isn’t bleh in person? You, with a glass of wine and a book. Grab a glass of wine and settle down with your literary sweetheart.

6. Do some cultural sh*t, like that one museum exhibit you’ve been meaning to see.

You could spend the night listening to some boy giving you a little too much information about his mommy issues, or you could see that exhibit before it packs up and heads to another town.

Not to mention you can totally use it as an interesting talking point when you’re on a date with a more mentally adjusted man.

7. Work out all your sexual energy.

Run on a treadmill until your body has relinquished every ounce of sweat it has and your cramping muscles chase away any fantasy of some steamy skin-against-skin action.  Working out is just a much more constructive alternative to the cold shower.

8. Get a pet to ease your loneliness.

Who needs a man named Hank, when you could have a labrador puppy named Hank? Your four-legged hairy hunk will never leave your side. He might actually help you and bark the f*ccbois away.

9. Go to a movie… and throw popcorn at people on dates.

Think of it now, two people on a date seeing a romantic movie. Their hands slowly dancing around each other as they intertwine. They look at each other, slowly leaning in, and then bam! They get hit by a hail storm of sloppy butter popcorn.
