10 Fun Things for the Fearless Single to Do

Are you stuck in a rut? Bored from a “been-there-done-that “ mindset? Craving more excitement?

Here’s the fix!

In the spirit of “Girls Just wanna have fun,” authors Wendy Burt and Erin Kindberg have created a road map of adventures for singles that’s innovative and impressive!

This dynamic duo, co-authors of Oh, Solo Mia! The Hip Chick’s Guide to Fun for One, gives the 411 on people you should see, places you should go and things to explore, no matter where you live, no matter what your budget. And perhaps, most importantly, without a date!

Below are 10 of my favorites (the book contains more than 100.) Take a look at the array of social treasures they’ve uncovered…

Check off the ones you’ve never done, then make a date with yourself and be about the business of conquering new horizons!


_____1. Sign up for a singing lesson and then head out for karaoke night at your favorite pub. (Actually, as a karaoke diva I can attest that lessons aren’t really needed.) The folks are typically very friendly and supportive, and it’s all in good fun! Kinda” like the amateur version of American Idol.

_____ 2. Make a batch of home made cards and visit the children's ward at a nearby hospital.

_____ 3. Join a networking group to make new friends and business contacts. (Perhaps participation in Being Single’s monthly share sessions for women would be a good start).

_____ 4. Sign up for a singles’ cruise.

_____ 5. Take a cooking class (to improve your culinary skills). As the expression goes, it’s the quickest way to a man’s heart!

_____ 6. Take a Ms. fix-it class and learn how to tile with style. (Home Depot offers many free classes, check with your local store.)

_____ 7. Sign up for a tour of your hometown.

_____ 8. Attend a murder mystery dinner.

_____ 9. Start a family recipe cookbook. (Don’t forget to include grandma’s biscuits!)

_____ 10. Join an investment club and increase your fiscal fitness.
