#5 Have a date with yourself.
Do something crazy or naïve you think you’ll never do if you were in a relationship. Maybe watch a cheesy movie or have a reality TV marathon, go sky diving, buy yourself a gift. Have a night in and splurge yourself with all the guilty pleasures you can think of, maybe handmade chocolates or French champagne.
