You can do whatever you want
Think about this one for a minute. There’s no pressure to ask the other person what they want
to do and then have to feign interest in something you hate or just find incredibly boring. Instead, you can plan a special day just for you. Maybe you want to spend it exploring a museum. Maybe you want to take a leisurely bike ride around the city. Or maybe you just want to watch your favorite romantic comedy and rewind all your favorite parts. After all, the entire day is yours. Enjoy it.
You can use the day to learn more about yourself
One of the great things about being single is having plenty of opportunities to get to know yourself. I know I’ve said this before, but I firmly believe that you can’t love someone until you get to know yourself and fully love yourself. That may take time. But, it’s something that most definitely can’t be rushed. Make a promise with yourself to stay single until you know who you are — I guarantee the ride will be pretty exciting.
You can live it up with your friends
Just yesterday, for example, my friend Claire and I spent the afternoon together…just hanging out. We didn’t have anything grand planned, but it was great to just kick back, relax and catch up with each other. Everyone should have more days like this in their life.

The Mama’s Boy
Sorry, sunny, but we don’t have time to play the Freud Game with you. The Mama’s Boy can be a tricky one because at first, it seems all rather cute. “Oh, it’s so cute how he dotes on his mother,” you think. But give it time, and I assure you, it’ll turn into something scarier than your own father-daughter complex.
The Newly Unattached Bachelor
The Ex-Lover Obsessive
And that’s exactly when things become unhealthy. Pretty soon, he’s saying how smart she was, how her green eyes glimmered so beautifully against the morning light, how they once spent an entire weekend in bed at this little cabin in the woods and told each other their life story. Blah. Blah. Blah. Pretty soon after that, you two are sitting on the couch as he rests his head on your shoulders and blubbers like a little school girl.
We get it: Your ex should have been Miss
