It’s hard to believe fall is already here, which means soon our Instagram feeds are going to be filled with those cutesy photos of couples carving pumpkins and baking goods together. As a single girl, sometimes it’s hard seeing everyone else in happy relationships during this time of year. Just because couples are doing fun things during the fall doesn’t mean us single girls can’t either! Here are some fun solo date ideas I enjoy doing!

Visiting a Coffee Shop

If you love coffee as much as I do, visiting a coffee shop is one solo date I recommend! Bringing a good book and sipping on a delicious coffee is a great way to spend some alone time!

Going on a Walk

As the weather is getting cooler and the leaves are starting to change, this is the perfect time to go on a walk. Getting some exercise and some fresh air can be really relaxing and help destress! Bringing a furry friend can make the walk even better!

Movie marathon

Nothing beats staying in on a cool fall night and watching some of your favorite movies!

Self-care night

Having a self-care night is probably my personal favorite! Lighting a candle and engaging in different relaxing activities, whether that may be a warm bath or journaling, is a great way to learn more about yourself and take some extra time for you!

Fall Baking

Who doesn’t like a yummy treat? Turning on some of your favorite tunes and baking some yummy treats can make an evening a lot of fun! And the best part about baking solo is there’s more yummy treats for you to eat!

This time of year can be hard for when you’re single, but dating yourself and enjoying your own company can be just as fun as being in a relationship!
