You’ve seen her; she’s that girl sitting at the end of the bar enjoying a meal. Or maybe she’s in the theater watching the latest independent film. She could be at gallery checking out a new exhibit or even at a concert listening to her favorite artist.
Who is she with in all these places? Herself, and she doesn’t care what you think about her.
As a person that loves to be on the go, sometimes the best person to enjoy new life experiences with is myself. I know it may seem strange but I think dating yourself can be a really enjoyable experience.
I have friends who are worried about what other people would think if someone saw them out alone. But the truth is most people really aren’t paying you any attention and those that are must not have anything exciting going on to be focused on you.
Think about opportunities you have missed because you were waiting on other people to respond, or the places you could have visited but didn’t because no one else wanted to go. Now imagine if you lost the insecurity of not having company in public and did what you wanted whether people were with you or not.
It’s pretty freeing.
As I travel more and mature I realize that there are things I want to do that my friends and significant other may not want to. Instead of sulking and not going I’ve learned to experience them with one of my most favorite people, me.
Do you feel comfortable enough to spend time with YOU in public?
