Now, more than ever, it’s important to remember to take care of yourself. And what better way to take care of yourself, than to take yourself on a solo date?
In this time of social distancing you might find yourself unable to go on a date with others. Even if you live with a significant other, a little me time is always a good idea, especially if you’re feeling cooped up. So make a night of it, and take yourself on a solo date.
Here are some tips and ideas for making the most of your me-time!
After The Longest Day Ever, you’re excited to finally have a glass of wine on the couch and vent to your boo about your mom, your boss, your landlord, and the woman on the subway eating a tuna fish sandwich at 8:00 in the morning. No matter the problem, your partner always gives the best advice. As you wait for their usual pearls of wisdom, you realize it’s been a while since they’ve said anything, let alone anything extra insightful. You turn to look them in the eyes, and realize they’re in their cell phone. They’re leaving you, and your feelings completely tuned out.
There are few worse feelings than talking to someone you love, and realizing they’re ignoring you. One of these worse feelings is realizing it’s for a game of Candy Crush. Whether your boo is sucked into Instagram or addicted to texting, feeling ignored is an awful feeling. If your partner is so glued to their cell that they’re starting to ignore you every time you spend time together IRL, they may be full-on phubbing (snubbing you with their phone) you. And it might be kind of (read: completely) affecting your sex life.
