Single? 30 Ways To Spend Your Weekend [EXPERT]
Beat boredom and make the most of your time off with these great ideas!

When I was single, I had a love-hate relationship with weekends. I loved having the extra time off work, but I hated that I did not have a man to spend the time with. The truth is that I did not need a man to have fun or accomplish something meaningful. In many cases, I just needed "me time." 

I am going to help you out by suggesting acivities to do this weekend. I have all kinds of ideas on how to make this, or any other weekend, enjoyable–with or without a man or a friend. Although, I strongly suggest you pick one of these and call a friend to join you this weekend. Here are 30 fun activities to do! 10 Tips For Talking To Men

1. Go on a date with a new friend.

2. Go on an inexpensive weekend getaway.

3. Visit a department store makeup section and get a free makeover.

4. Buy a new dress and pair of sandals.

5. Get tickets for a play or other live event. Discount tickets are available on the internet.

6. Go to a singles event. You can search meeting spots on the internet.

7. Go to a wine tasting event.

8. Wander around a local organic market and learn about new foods.
