11 Solo At-Home Date Night Ideas For When You're Totally Rocking The Single Life This Fall

Dates for one can be so much more fun than dates for two.

11 Solo At-Home Date Night Ideas For When You're Totally Rocking The Single Life This Fall

During the pandemic, I've found out so much about myself by being single. I've learned that self-care comes first, I don't have to worry about impressing anyone else with my cooking skills other than myself, and it's perfectly OK to date yourself. So, for my fellow singles, here are 11 at home solo-date ideas (that are COVID-19 friendly) you can partake in any time you want to, to rock the single life this fall.

1. Movie marathon

Whether you're an action, superhero, rom-com, or horror fan, find some movies, pop some popcorn, and don't feel bad about falling asleep half-way through.

2. Spa night

For girls AND guys, either find some DIY recipes on Pinterest or splurge on some face masks from Ulta and relax the night away.

3. Puzzles

No, they're not just for old people. Grab some puzzles from a craft store (or anywhere else that sells them), and get to work. The feeling of finishing a puzzle is unmatched.

4. Try new recipes

This is the time to try out new recipes you usually wouldn't go for. And the plus side of doing this as a single person is that you're the only person you have to worry about cooking for.

5. Dance party

Grab your favorite style of music, a wireless speaker, and, quite literally, dance like no one is watching.

6. Art night

Whether it's adult coloring books, finger paints, sketching, or anything else, art is a great way to relax by yourself.

7. Pillow fort

A new spin-off of the childhood favorite, build a pillow fort, make some snacks, and re-live the kid-like excitement.

8. At-home yoga class

All you need is a yoga mat and you're instantly a yogi — yes, it's that simple.

9. Online shopping spree

Even though you can't go on a full-out in-person shopping spree, that doesn't mean you can't do it from the comfort of your own couch.

10. Rearrange your living space

One of the quickest ways to bring a sense of change is to rearrange your living space. Move couches, TVs, picture frames, etc, for a night spent as a professional decorator.

11. Read

Never underestimate the power of a good book.

I Have An Eating Disorder And I Refuse To Let It Kill Me

Even at my lowest, the number on the scale never seemed low enough... but was it ever worth the risk of losing my life?

Trigger warning: This article discusses topics that may be triggering for some readers.

I looked down at my thumb today. I know haven't been eating enough. I told everyone I would get all my vitamins and calories in. I totally wanted to eat more of the guacamole I bought the other day, but I counted what I had eaten and those numbers seemed a little too high. I decided I didn't need the extra helping, so I went to bed and the guacamole went bad.

I spend a lot of time on TikTok and I never know whether the products I see are worth it or not, especially when I'm looking at the price. For Christmas, my aunt got me a gift card to Ulta.
