When we are in a serious relationship, we sometimes forget who we are. Our likes soon mirror our partners and we lose our individuality. All of a sudden, you are single, yet you’re attending hockey games and rooting for his team. While there, you remember you don’t really like hockey. You only watched because it was your exes favorite sport.
Or a country song comes on the radio and you catch yourself rocking out. You used to listen to country all the time before he came along. Your now ex hated the sorrowful croons.
Now, you’re single. You are adjusting to your new status. Often times newly single women need time to rediscover who they are. That’s where the Single Woman’s Bucket List comes in. This is a list of all the things you want to do, see, and experience before committing to someone again.
Here are a few ideas to add to your single woman bucket list.
Get a hot bartender to ask for your number. It’s one thing to leave your number for a hot bartender on your receipt, and another to have said bartender ask for your digits. After a drink or two, flirt with him. If he starts giving you drinks half-off, or free, you’re on the right path.
Ride on the back of a hot guy’s motorcycle. You are free and single. Live your life! What better way to do so than daringly? When you reminisce about your single years, you want to have great stories to tell. Plus, if he’s hot you have to hold on even tighter, right? Safety first!
Go on vacation with friends. Save your money and jet set. Whether it’s Hawaii or Tuscany, go somewhere with beautiful scenery and beautiful people. Get up and sip on a piña colada while strolling on the beach. Maybe you’ll meet a hot, single soldier whose stationed on the island and have a week-long romance. Or a local guy who can show you around between smooches. Just go and have an adventure!
Get a tattoo. Don’t ink a random tattoo; find something that means a lot to you. Maybe your favorite inspirational quote or a symbol that reminds you of a positive experience. If you aren’t a tattoo girl, you can always go the henna route. It’s temporary but still exciting!
Being single doesn’t have to be a sad period in your life. Guys are attracted to women who are happy, confident and who know who they are. So, take the time out to become the best you. While you are enjoying the single life and finding yourself, you might even find the right person for you. Take a chance, single ladies.
