Why Every Single Girl Should Be Masturdating! (Ahem, Going To The Movies Or Dinner Alone)

Masturdating… my favorite pastime! It gives me a chance to relax and truly get in touch with myself. “Wait… what did she just say?” Ahh, got ya! Get your mind out of the gutter. Masturdating is the act of going to dinner or the movies alone, or dating yourself, as Blake Lively Instagrammed earlier this month:

So, why masturdate? It allows you the freedom to have a great time, all the time, all alone. What could be better? Well, let me tell you! Check out my top 4 reasons why every girl should masturdate:

1. You discover who you REALLY are

By taking the time to get to know yourself – you are identifying yourself as an individual, rather than someone who has been labeled by others throughout the years. This discovery ignites a feeling of self worth. You’re now saying things like, “I do matter, and “I will be happy;” all of which aid in the development of a positive strong minded person.

2. You create your own happiness

Self satisfaction is by far one of the most gratifying things we can do for ourselves. By taking yourself out on dates, you’re taking full responsibility for your own happiness. As fulfilling as it is to make someone else smile, you need to make sure you’re smiling first before you focus on anyone else’s happiness.

3. You develop a healthy relationship with yourself

Above all else, you’re developing a strong and caring relationship with yourself, where you get accustomed to treating yourself with respect and kindness. You’re focusing on everything that you may have pushed aside over the years, whether it’s your health, hobbies, or career. A healthy relationship allows for one to get in touch with themselves, without any outside influences. This is the key to happiness.

4. You’re building a strong foundation for your next relationship

If you’re the type of person who can’t quite grasp being single, then try reminding yourself that flying solo is actually beneficial for your next relationship. Why? Because you’re experience with loneliness and heartache develops you as a strong person. When you start to recognize your journey as a positive path, you’ll in turn attract the positive people you deserve!
