1. Hit the movies .
I know, I know - sitting alone in a movie theater sounds incredibly awkward. My suggestion? Do it anyway. If you're like me, you're always whispering in your friends' ears when you go to the movies in a big group, so it can be pretty relaxing to go solely to enjoy a film. Plus, you get to not only choose the film, but where exactly you want to sit - like the last seat in the back row.
2. Go shopping.
There's a benefit of going shopping with friends - they'll make sure that you don't buy anything truly heinous - but it's not exactly the most efficient experience. You'll probably be spending more time at the food court than you will scoping out an appropriate dress for the wedding you're attending next month. Going shopping without a buddy means you'll have more time to find exactly what you're looking for.
3. Go to an exercise class.
Exercising with a buddy can be one of the best ways to motivate you to get in shape, but signing up for a class solo can be particularly rewarding. You'll be able to focus on your own workout and can introduce your friends to a fun new activity next time they're looking to break a sweat.
4. Cook something amazing.
What better way to hone your culinary skills than by hitting up Pinterest for a new recipe? You might not want your first time making teriyaki salmon to be tested on an audience, anyway. If you ever do cook for friends, they'll be marveled by your newfound chef status.
5. Get pampered.
Sure, it can be fun getting your nails done or a facial with a group of friends, but if you're really looking to get into the zen zone, try doing it solo. You'll have plenty of time with your thoughts during the hot stone massage.
Have fun being your own BFF for a day!
