Normally, dating requires the presence of another person for a fun night out or a successful date. I recently discovered that you really only need yourself to have a good time and the term for dating oneself and having fun alone is actually masturdating. Yes, they could have probably done better with the name selection, but masturdating is perfect for those who aren’t exactly the dating type or who just can’t stand to be around too many people in general.
Here’s a list of perfect dates you can go on a date all by yourself.
1. Go to the movies.
Have you been dying to see Wonder Woman but don’t have anyone to go with? Who says you need someone else? Go by yourself. One major plus: there’s no struggle with trying to figure out movie times and there won’t be that one person who doesn’t want to see the movie. But who doesn’t want to see Wonder Woman?
2. Buy yourself dinner.
Maybe you don’t have to go to a fancy restaurant, but you just want a nice dinner. You don’t have to be shy about what you eat. You want breakfast for dinner? You order breakfast for dinner. You want that super delux bacon cheeseburger with fries on the side? You get that burger. You deserve it!
3. Do some star gazing.
Everyone dreams about watching the stars with the person they love… Why not watch them by yourself? The quiet times you get with yourself are when you can let the stress of the day go and they are pure perfection. You don’t have to worry about looking nice or what you’re going to say. You’re alone with your thoughts. As scary as that may sound, it’s actually a good thing. When’s the last time you were able to hear yourself think?
4. Spend a day at the beach.
Have you ever wanted to just pack up and go somewhere? A trip to the beach or the lake allows that. You can get up in the morning and spend the whole day just chilling at the beach or walking to boardwalk.
5. Take a vacation.
This last one’s a little out there but who hasn’t dreamed of going on vacation? Vacations are deemed to be for families and couples but who says you can’t get away from it all on your own? It doesn’t have to be international, maybe you can go see a city you’ve never been to before for a weekend and take the time to explore.
Masturdating is seen as something lonely people do because they can’t get dates or they don’t have friends, which is completely untrue. Masturdating is about self-care and learning to love yourself. As the great RuPaul says, “If you don’t love yourself, how the hell are you gonna love somebody else?”
