Having a boyfriend is not essential to learning how to live or love.

So I decided to answer the question, here is a list of ideas for those who don't have boyfriends.

1. Read

2. Run

3. Workout

4. Write

5. Hangout with your friends

6. Learn a new instrument

7. Get a pet

8. Go for a hike

9. Explore poetry

10. Become a food critic (on your own of course)

11. Get your nails done

12. Dance

13. Explore the touristy activities in your area

14. Catch up on chores

15. Do your laundry

16. Garden

17. Have a picnic

18. Visit a local coffee shop with friends

35. Volunteer at places you think need help

36. Research a topic that you've always wanted to know more about

37. Attend an open-mic some place

38. Do some karaoke

39. Go skiing

40. Eat some dark chocolate

41. Take your parents out to dinner

42. Spend time with your siblings

43. Get a new piercing

44. Start a new TV series

45. Learn what you want in your next relationship and the next guy you date

This is a list of 45 things that can be done without a boyfriend. My point is not to rag those who have boyfriends, but to prove that almost anything can be done without a boyfriend (or with a boyfriend). Having a boyfriend is not essential to learning how to live or love. Rather, you should be with someone who makes you happy but does not take time away from the things you love to do. A boyfriend is not someone who completes you, but compliments you. Dating is normal, being interested in guys is not bad, but forgetting your friends, replacing your friends, forgetting who you are, and losing pieces of who you were is wrong. Go on and date, but those who are single are okay being who they are without having to compromise on what they want to do or who they share the bed with.
