Hi beautifuls!

Today's article resume in one sentence : dating myself aka basically how I spend my free-times as a happy single person lol.

The idea of self-dating popped up in my mind when I realized I was preventing myself to go to restaurants or cafe I'd really love (big fan of eating in fancy and good restaurants, big problem for my wallet haha) just because I had no one to go with... I was afraid of people's eyes on my "loneliness" lmao. But why the fuck would I deprive myself ? It took me some time and experiences to realize that :

  • couple does not necessary equal happiness
  • being single means as much opportunities and enjoyable times as being in a relationship does
  • there is a lot of people doing their things on their own and it's super duper cool
  • eventually to be happy in couple you need first to be happy with yourself

So here I am, sharing with you guys some of my favorites self-dates ideas, to remember or even learn you're enough. You can make yourself happy, you can succeed on your own, you are your safe place.

Go to your favorite restaurant

Walk the streets

I think it's really pleasant to just walk around, letting my feet take me where they wanna go and getting a bit lost in my own city. It's important about me to remember you can travel even in your own city/town, that you could be surprised at every street corner. It's kind of a way to be grateful for what surronds you, and learn how to enjoy the little things.

Picnic and chill

Get lost in a library
