Self Love Series: How To Date Yourself

When was the last time you looked at yourself in the mirror, gave yourself a wink and asked, "How YOU doin'?" Maybe I've been taking too many notes from Joey Tribbiani, but my self love challenge for you this week is to have a spot of fun by asking yourself out. 

Yes, I mean taking yourself on a date every once in a while. I'm not talking about grabbing a quick lunch alone or binging on Netflix when you are bored. I'm talking about planning a nice period of time with yourself full of some of your favorite things. An evening of giving yourself exactly what you need without any expectations of anyone else. No pity parties for being single, no yearning for your partner to do something nice for you, but just doing your own thing just for kicks. 

To recap for you new readers, the first week of this Self Love Series we covered the why of self love, and last week we covered taking a look at not just loving, but even simply liking who you are. So I thought it would be appropriate to now focus on having a bit of fun with it. And what's more fun than dating?!!! (She asks sarcastically.)
