Single Girl Bucket List

Sarah of Bright Lights, My City posted a "Single Girls Bucket List." I found it quite interesting and thought I'd share.

1. Go to a movie alone. It's not as scary as you think!
2. Lift weights. 
3. Try surfing, skiing, or some physical outdoor activity you don’t already know how to do.I tried snowboarding! But didn't end well....
4. Set a mousetrap, do your taxes, build an Ikea dresser, and backup your files. I'm an independent woman so definitely think women should do all these!
5. Live alone, or at least move apartments in NYC without the help of family I've been living alone for nearly 5 years *wink*
6. Train for (and finish) a huge physical test like a half-marathon. Um probably not going to happen.
7. Learn to cook well. Done and done!
8. Fly to a foreign country by yourself. I've been contemplating on doing this, Paris?
9. Fly to a foreign country and join the mile high club. Or at least chat with a sexy stranger on the plane. Probably not the mile high club (pretty tacky) but would love to chat it up with a sexy stranger.
10. Learn to stand up for yourself. Done!
11. Go on a date with a sweet man, whom you’re not initially sexually attracted to.  Give him a chance!
12. Revel in being able to watch all the reality TV you want.  Hello, Real Housewives of NYC Marathon... I do this every weekend!
13. Get drunk during the day, just because you can.  Boozy Brunch?  A daytime bar crawl? Don't drink and don't think a woman has to get bashed before getting hitched.
14. Let your married friends edit your online dating profile. haha that's an idea!
15. Go out with an older man who takes you somewhere nice and makes you feel like a million bucks.  And don’t go home with him just because he spent so much money on you. Ooh, I need to do this (lol!)
16. Go out with a guy who makes you laugh ‘til it hurts. Do this every time you get the chance!
17. Be a good wingwoman.  It’s not always about you.  (Even The Situation takes grenades for Pauly D) Lmao like the "Jersey Shore" reference, I try to help my girls out!
18. Go out with a younger guy before judging his maturity solely on his age.  But, if he sleeps all day or isn’t reliable, end it before you get in too deep with his frat boy antics. Done except for the last part... woops!
19. Volunteer. Yes!
20. Do at least one Valentine’s Day alone.  (Oh, I was supposed to do only ONE?) haha I've had plenty of these
21. Attend a wedding (or 15) alone.  Haven't had many weddings to go to but think I could manage this.
22. Invest in a LBD (little black dress) and sexy platforms that are a little out of your usual price range. I'm working on it! Fashion New Year's resolutions
23. Buy yourself some flowers.
24. Buy one of your best girlfriends flowers.  (Have them sent to her office to surprise her) There's an idea!
25. Sit at a bar by yourself and drink a dirty martini.
26. Get your finances in order. Yes!
27. Throw yourself into something time-consuming, like learning a foreign language. Hmm...
28. Babysit for a frazzled new mom for a few hours to give her a break. I do this for my sister whenever I visit California.
29. Help a friend through her divorce or a bad break-up. Always!
30. Host a girls-only night. Some coupled-up women forget how much we need each other. So true!

Have you done any of these? What else should be on the bucket list?


  1. I am so doing this!! Totally saving this list and working my way through it! #6 looks like the hardest!

  2. Yeah I have no desire to run a half marathon, maybe a 5k charity walk?


We all have opinions... I want to hear yours!
