While being single may not necessarily be a choice, spending your time wisely as an uncommitted 20+ years old lady is. Instead of plotting how to land a man or being envious of your friends who already have, take this time to explore some valuable lessons that every girl in her 20s should know so you’ll be ready when he finally arrives.

in Your Own Company Being alone can be hard, but it’s important to not be dependent on the company of others to be happy. No one likes a clinger, and your future boyfriend will respect the fact that you have other interests besides him and are capable of having a good time all on your own. Read a good book, watch a new movie, pick up a hobby or go jogging. There are plenty of things you can do all by yourself to stay entertained.
Mastering the Art of Self-Soothing
It’s great to have someone around to take care of you when you’re sick, hug you when you’re sad, or just listen to your problems. For the times you don’t have that, however, you should learn to master the art of self soothing. This is when a nice bottle of wine and a hot bubble bath comes in. It’s always good to be able to brush yourself off and keep going.
Being Happy for the Romantic Successes of Others
Green is not a pretty color on anyone, and the older you get, the harder it can be to be happy for the
romantic successes of others when you’re still single. However, .being bitter or resentful is not going to attract the kind of energy and attention you want. Make a conscious effort to be happy for your friends who are getting married or pregnant, even if your romantic life is in the dumps. Your time will come soon enough, and you will want your friends to be happy and celebrate with you when it does.
Not Living in the Past
You can’t spend your single years thinking about the boyfriends you used to have or flowers you used to get on random Tuesday mornings. That part of your life is over; the sooner you put it behind
you and accept that, the sooner you’ll be ready to move on to the next stage in your life.
Not Idealizing Your Ex
We all have that one person who got away, and you probably think of him or her from time to time. Don’t — it’s useless. The chances of you two being legitimate soul mates are slim to none. The chances of you perfecting an image of someone in your mind because you’re lonely and crave familiarity? Much more probable.
Altering Your List Might Surprise You
Being single is the perfect time to re-assess what it is you really want out of a relationship. Are you looking for someone to challenge you, make you laugh or live a healthy lifestyle with you? Be clear on what it is you’re looking for, and you might be surprised to find you’re more open to things that were previously deal breakers. You might realize the rich doctor type you’ve been chasing after hasn’t actually worked out for you, and you want to give the struggling writer a shot, instead. Be open to trying something new and it might surprise you.
Recognizing the Value of Your Individualism
There’s no better time than when you’re single to develop and appreciate your own train of thought. No one likes a yes man, and you want to be the kind of girl who can think meaningfully about issues and problems without having to resort to her boyfriend for his opinion first.
Number Eight: Settling
Sucks Yes, it’s tough to be single, but even worse than being single is being in bad company. If you’re doing everything else right, you should actually be having a pretty decent time finding out more about yourself as a person, spending time with friends and family and excelling in your career. Why would you want to ruin that by adding someone to your life who only half interests you? Don’t bother. At no point is settling ever a good idea.
Make your own money!
I repeat make your own money! please stop letting men bash you up and down because they think you can’t live without them.
