6 Great Ideas for a Solo Date

A lot of single ladies miss going on dates because they don’t have a partner or miss going on interesting adventures or romantic getaways.  But, that doesn’t have to be the case. You can still have fun by yourself, try out different things outside your comfort zone that will increase your confidence, and enrich your day. This article rounds up fun six ideas for a solo date.

Have a Game Night

Start trying out things that are outside of your comfort zone, so even if gaming isn’t your thing, you can play different games and see what’s fun and interesting to you. For example, you could try playing games of chance online.  Today you easily open an account and play on reliable casino sites like, for instance. 

Online casinos have a vast library of games suitable for beginners and more experienced players. So, you can spin slots, or try table casino games, like roulette, craps, among many other options. And if you enjoy watching cricket, for instance, there are also prominent betting sites like, where you can bet for real money. 

Otherwise, you can play retro video games that remind you of your childhood, for example, Super Mario, Street Fighter, Donkey Kong, and others. Or, play something more modern on your smartphone, like Call of Duty, Alto’s Adventure, and other mobile games. Anyway, there are many options available online, so you’ll definitely find entertaining titles.

Coffee Date

If you already have a familiar routine, then you can try something new and visit a new café. It isn’t a huge change in your day, but it’s an opportunity to treat yourself and maybe read a book while you have your coffee. Also, it’s a great way to slow down and relax after a long week.

Fancy Spa Day

A self-care day is always a good idea, and nothing beats a good pampering session at a spa with a fancy massage or facial treatment. If you can’t afford a trip to a spa, then you can have a ‘ spa’ day at home. Create a peaceful atmosphere with essential oils, bath salts, soothing music, and  have a long bubble bath.

Date in a Gallery

If you love art, then you can take an art class and actually learn how to draw and paint. It’s a great way to expand your circle of friends, while if you like it, you can sign up for a whole course. But, also, the art galleries are an excellent option for a solo date. In some galleries, there’s a guided tour where you can learn more about certain art pieces and painters.

Solo Trip

When we’re in a relationship, we tend to make compromises and maybe settle for trips to cities that aren’t on your bucket list. But, now you have time to explore cities and towns and visit historical landmarks that have piqued your interest. You can travel locally or go to a different town, have dinner at a local restaurant, visit local shops and have fun while you explore a foreign city on your terms.

Spend Time in Nature

If you feel overwhelmed, then a  great activity that will boost your mood is spending time in nature.                      You can go on a hike, take a walk in the park, or even prepare snacks for a solo picnic. Another benefit of taking some time off social media where you probably compare yourself with Instagram influencers or stalk your ex-partner is an opportunity for you to take some time to reflect and relax after a busy day. But, also, when you spend time in natural surroundings, you will feel a lot more creative and energized when you come back home.
