The Best 18 Activities To Do Solo If You Need Some ‘Me Time’ Away From Your Partner

Spending time with your S.O. is essential, but there is such a thing as spending too much time with one another. If you feel that you are constantly bickering, annoyed with one another, or just no longer having fun, there is nothing wrong with taking some time for yourself. In fact, relationship experts advise couples take time apart to assure a positive balance between individual and partner: "It's completely normal to need space in a relationship." You want to feel free in your relationship, rather than cooped up.

It's better to miss someone than to be sick of them.

This doesn't signify that there is something wrong with your relationship. Instead, it's a sign that you have to remind yourself of who you are without your other half. And, as a matter of fact, your "me time" will encourage reinvigorated conversation between the two of you, which will, consequently, support a more resilient connection.

Spa

Giphy

Pamper yourself and have a spy day consisting of massages, mud baths (or Lush bath bombs), manicures and pedicures, and a ton of essential oils.

Exercise

Giphy

Go on a run. Take a cycle class. Do yoga on the beach. Working out comes with a laundry list of stress-relieving benefits. Plus, exercise-induced orgasms, also known as coregasms: the more in tune you are with your strong body, the better your sex life will be. You can thank me later.

Girls' (or guys') night

Giphy

Friendships is another relationship that requires work and time! Don't forget about your people who support you through everything. Stay in and watch movies like "Gilmore Girls'" Lorelai and Rory. Emulate "Sex and the City" vibes and go out to town. Or, in the manner of Annie and Lillian from "Bridesmaids," gossip at a coffee shop for your classic brunch.

Cook a 5-star meal

Giphy

Maybe you'll become the next Chef Gordon Ramsay.

Binge watch "The Bachelor"

Giphy

Whether it be sports, a sitcom, or reality television, lose yourself in your favorite captivating, dramatic show.

Therapy

Giphy

Having a neutral individual to listen to your challenges and guide you through them can positively impact your way of life. If nagging to your S.O. isn't working anymore, try complaining to a therapist.

D.I.Y. project

Giphy

Pinterest has got your back.

Journal, plan, organize, read

Giphy

Take some time for yourself to journal, which has been scientifically proven to help stabilize your emotions, transform your outlook on life, and spark a creative blaze.

Take a fun, "out-of-your-comfort-zone" class

Giphy

What's something you've always wanted to do but never had time for? Pole dancing? Skydiving? Painting?

Get some rest

Giphy

Is your main squeeze keeping you up all night? Get some much needed Zzz's and without your partner, you get the bed to yourself, so sprawl out and enjoy it while it lasts.

 Go on a drive

Giphy

Perhaps you'll end up at the beach or a drive-through, whichever one is closer.

 Shopping

Giphy

You know what they say, shopping is cheaper than therapy. Treat yourself with a few gifts and maybe something special for your loved one.

 Meditate

Giphy

Find your zen through any activity that brings you to your nirvana.

 Scroll through Instagram or play video games

Giphy

And no one will yell at you for your attention!

 Masturbate

Giphy

Never shy away from pleasuring yourself and discovering your bodies capabilities. This, too, will boost your lovemaking.

 Family time

Giphy

Families are messes but spending quality time with these crazies is essential in helping you build stronger relationships.

 Cuddle your pet

Giphy

Without your cuddle buddy, your pet is the next best thing.

Find something that helps your personal, individual development apart from your old ball and chain. Doing so will both enable you to grow as a discrete person and ignite some fiery excitement in your relationship.

A Tribute To The Lonely Hispanic

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, I’d like to share a few thoughts about being Hispanic in a country where it’s hard to be Hispanic.

Veronika Maldonado

Just a little background information; my dad was born in Mexico, came to the U.S. as a newborn and became a citizen when he was 25 years old. My mom was born and raised in the U.S. as were my grandparents and great grandparents, but my great-great grandparents did migrate here from Mexico. I am proud to classify myself as Hispanic but there are times when I feel like I’m living a double life and I don’t fit into either one.

An Atlanta Weekend

A New Yorker's quick weekend in Atlanta.

On a weekend visit to Atlanta, I had to adjust to people being personable and congenial to me. Although I had lived in the South before, I had to get reacquainted with southern hospitality due to visiting from Brooklyn. Atlanta Uber drivers are very down to earth, offer snacks, and provide great genuine conversations. The opposite is the lay of the land from Brooklyn Uber drivers. The southern hospitality is provided not only from the Uber drivers, but restaurant servers, cashiers, or random people giving suggestions. Brooklyn is a dope and unique place to live, but short on the warmth more often than not.
