Single with a lot of time?

Single and find yourself with a lot of free time? Instead of filling it up with netflix binges (which is fine) here are some ideas I've found myself doing that could work for you as well (When I'm not vegitating). Get physically active! I'm an avid climber + and yogi (brogi?) which would have never happened if I didn't look for something to patch up my time in the single life. I've made a lot of good friends and genuinely enjoy any time I have to practice either one. But you can try running, dancing, hiking, swimming, weight lifting, frisbee, soccer etc. all which are relatively inexpensive. The community behind any activity is also strong so you'll make good friends off something you know you share an interest in. Meetup is great for this and facebook groups. Pick up a skill! Level yourself up! Have you had any thought of picking up an instrument, learning how to cook, sew, change car breaks, etc? Well enjoy that free time and practice! In a way it'll give you a passion which is important throughout any stage of your life. Guys and gals, if you don't know how to cook and are single get on that. You'll love yourself for it.

The silent dance, the partner you see but never talk to

You see the person often at the coffee shop, passing by class, or randomly on the streets. You know this person but you don't actually know them, though you find them cute. I've seen some people (including myself) that go through this, what I call, silent dance. Noticing someone who goes through your life and yet you say nothing. While it's a dance we know too well it's time to forget it. Next time you see your dancing partner just go say hi. I know it's hard, rejection can be scary, but they won't bite your head off. Most people are friendly and will love meeting someone confident enough to walk up to a stranger. It gets easier as you try but if you need some quick tips I left some below. 1) Don't think just go. Thinking can lead to second thoughts and you not actually doing something. When I went cliff jumping I walked up to the edge and looked below. I immediately had second thoughts but then just jumped before walking away. Sometimes it can be good to be impulsive (that was not one though) 2) Practice before hand. Practice makes perfect so come up with an easy intro and use it on other strangers (probably the same gender as you) to make it easier for yourself. 3) Remember it's a win-win situation for you. Either you'll get to talk to them or you'll find out if they have no interest in you. It's better to know and move on then having the annoying "what if" question. 4) Remind yourself how awesome you are. Remember you're an amazing person, if you can't then this feeds into the dating yourself idea but I can talk about that another day.
