I thought I would be so bored, however, I have learned that the adventures I can have alone are far more exciting and suited to me than any adventure I ever went on when I was in a relationship. Here is a list of my top things that all single girls should do sometime in their lifetime. I haven’t done them all yet, but I am working on it!
