Hoorah!  Singles in New Jersey are rejoicing!  The holidays have come and gone.  The dreadful time of year that reminded you of your single status has finally passed, and all those sappy commercials about happy relationships is in the past.  It’s 2017, a brand new year where you don’t have to be reminded of not having a partner—at least not until the fast-approaching Valentine’s Day.  But nonetheless, just because you’re single doesn’t mean your life needs to stop.  In fact, you can enjoy being single in many different ways, and we’re here to show you how.

Sometimes, when we’re in relationships, we neglect certain aspects of ourselves.  But now that you’re single, you can get back to your life and nurture yourself.  Today, our South Jersey Matchmakers are going to show you what you can do while you’re single to make the most out of your time on your own in 2017.

1. Enjoy Every Experience

Sometimes, we don’t even realize we’re living because we spend too much time with our partners.  It is refreshing to nurture yourself and create stories on your own.  Now that you’re single, you don’t have to spend all your time sitting idle at home watching TV with someone every evening after work.  Now is the perfect time for you to get up, get out, and get moving!

Don’t be afraid to venture out and do something you’ve never done before.  First of all, because you deserve it, and second of all, because it’s something you’ve been wanting to do.  Those experiences will be with you forever, and they’ll make for great stories once you get land a new relationship.

2. Attend Parties

One of the best things about being single is that you can spend as much time with your friends as you want.  You don’t have to try and schedule get togethers around your partner’s calendar.  Even if you don’t like to party, hanging out with your friends is something you need to do for your own well-being.

Accept a night out on the town or enjoy a dinner party with your friends.  Better yet, invite them to your house and have cozy night in.  Quality time with friends is great and will give you a satisfying and fulfilling social life.

3. Live Without Judgements

Whether it’s doing something for the first time or simply spending your weekend in comfy clothes, you don’t’ have to worry about being judged for doing something you want.  Even if you decide you want to order a pizza at midnight, no one will be there to tell you that you shouldn’t.

Our South Jersey Matchmakers want you to do anything you want, as long as it’s not detrimental to your health.  Spend your days off doing anything you desire: explore the city, spend more time at work, hang out with friends and family, or volunteer for a charity that is near and dear to your heart.  Do anything that puts a smile on your face and brings you happiness.

4. Work as Much as You Want

One of the best things you can do when you’re single is spend more time on your career.  When you’re in a relationship, you can’t dedicate too much time to your work, especially when it comes to doing projects at home.  But now that you’re single, you can put in a few extra hours at home to finish projects without feeling bad about not spending time with your partner.  Hey, you can even request extra hours at work and get paid more money for overtime.

5. Plan Your Days Well

Because you’re single, you have a flexible schedule—you’re your own boss.  People in relationships must consider their partner’s schedule, but not you.  You can do anything you want and whenever you want to do it.  To make the most of your days, our South Jersey Matchmakers encourage you to keep a diary or agenda where your days are perfectly figured out.

6. Use This Time to Think

Use this time to think about anything you want.  Spend some relaxing time in a quiet setting without any distractions.  There is nothing more refreshing than really thinking and focusing your energy on yourself and your life.

You can think about what you want in life and what you’re going to do to accomplish it.  Whether it’s career goals or dating goals, it all starts in your head.  Make sure you give yourself quiet time to collect and examine your thoughts.

7. Start Meeting New People

Friends or potential dates, there are so many people you can be meeting every day.  Each time you venture out gives you the opportunity to meet someone new.  It is important to remember that it’s your choice to be social.  Now that you’re single, you have an opportunity to get out and mingle with other singles in New Jersey.  Everywhere you turn, there is someone new to meet, so go ahead and introduce yourself to them.

8. Travel Different Places

Explore the world and see everything in it.  You don’t have to wait to be in a relationship to see the beauty in the world around you.  If your schedule and finances allow, then go ahead and plan a trip that place you’ve always been dying to go.

Start small by checking out some places nearby; take a daytrip to Philly, New York City, or Atlantic City to do some dining, shopping, and sightseeing.  Then, explore new places and expand your horizons—maybe even travel out of the country.  You will gain valuable lessons and grow as an individual on every trip you take, especially if you’re traveling all alone.

9. Cook for Yourself

Now that you don’t have to account for your partner’s taste, you can make any meal you want.  You can cook as much Italian food as you like now that you don’t have to worry about a gluten intolerant partner.  You have the freedom to do anything you want in the kitchen without your partner complaining.  Plus, you get all those amazing leftovers for yourself!

Here at South Jersey Matchmakers, we encourage our clients to use their single days to their advantage.  Never stop living your life just because you don’t have someone to share it with right now.  The more you live your life, the more you’ll grow, and the more interesting you’ll become for potential suitors.  Get out there and create wonderful stories to share with your next partner.
