Single? 30 Ways To Spend Your Weekend


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.
