What's a "me" date?
The urban dictionary defines “me” dates as “an enjoyable evening spent alone where one treats themselves as if they were their own date”.
Ironically, I heard about the concept of “me” dates on a date.
The type of date that involves two people.
It was during the first date with my girlfriend.
She told me she does them every now and then as a way to reconnect with herself. She was telling me how she’d take herself to a gallery or a dinner.
Back then I realized it wasn’t something I do and I felt uncomfortable just thinking about actually doing it. It was more than uncomfortable, it was the fear of not doing anything and being on my own. No distractions. I wanted to overcome this fear.
I challenged myself to do “me” dates regularly and use them as a tool for my weekly self-discovery.
I started sharing about my experiences from "me" dates in my articles
- read Self-discovery through "me" dates
- read Reconnecting with myself: Body, Mind & Soul (through “me” dates)
and that inspired others to try it. They shared about their own "me" dates and wrote about it in this article: My first date with her (and 7 “me” dates my readers do).
