3 Actions You Can Take to Get Happy Single
Happy Single Action 1
Buy yourself flowers!
- Key Concept: Date yourself. If it makes you happy when a date buys you flowers, buy some for yourself. If it makes you happy when a date takes you to dinner, take yourself to dinner. If it makes you happy when a date buys you chocolate, or shoes, or a new gun (for you guys), buy it for yourself. Enjoy the hit of dopamine you get. Repeat.
