Stay True to Yourself
“I was really happy being single when I stopped trying to be something I wasn’t. When you’re happy you attract happy people. It’s funny because even in a relationship you have to remind yourself of that,” says Jayme G., 28, of Plainflied, New Jersey, who has been exclusive with her boyfriend for the past two years.
Have Faith
We know it’s frustrating to hear sometimes, but things do happen exactly when they are suppose to. “Remember that your soul mate is on his own journey. Be confident that a man who knows what he wants and where he is going will meet you halfway,” says Dr. Suzan D. Johnson Cook.
Enjoy Your Solo
From weddings to cruise vacations, recognize the great company you are and go to places you want to . . .alone. You can have a fabulous time, and have a better chance of coming away with new friends as you work the room.
Engage in the Extra-curricular Activities

Being single gives you prime opportunities to engage in activities that you enjoy…by yourself. Love to cook? Why not register for a culinary class at your local community college to perfect your chef skills. Want to conquer your fear of the water? Sign up for a swimming class at the neighborhood YMCA. Not only are these excellent ways to past your time but you just might meet a new cutie pie there.

Try yoga…very relaxing
Feel Sexy in a salsa class

Learn how to cook…remember the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach
Living Single Ohhhh in a 90s kinda world I’m glad I’ve got my girls!!

Before Carrie Bradshaw and her crew rocked New York in “Sex and the City,” and Joan and her “Girlfriends” took the TV world by storm, the ladies of “Living Single” highlighted the highs and lows of the single life. Having girlfriends who have your back never goes out of style. “Cherish your true friends. While you’re single you have more opportunity to build and nurture those friendships than you do as an attached woman. Your partner can’t be all things to you. Those friendships will help you sustain your union,” says Angela R., 51, who has been happily married for 22 years.

It Starts With You
“We place a lot of attention on what the other person should be like. But how do we get in a state of readiness to be with that person? While it’s important to seek specific qualities in a partner, not enough of us spend time on our own spiritual development.”

Spend time developing your self spiritually, intellectually, socially, and emotionally. Before you enter a relationship make sure you are NOT brining unneccessary baggage.

Smile Bright
Showing off your pearly whites seems like a no-brainer, but being happy and showing it makes a bigger impact then you realize. Whether out with friends or walking down a quiet street, smile a little, and let others be drawn to your light.


Solo Escapes
It is great to have friends and spend time with your firends, so spend some time with yourself. Go to the park or the beach with a book, your iPod and just relax and enjoy your own company.
