Independence Day, while marking the birth of our nation, takes on a whole new significance for the single gal. Yes, it does mean another holiday alone, but it’s also a great time to reflect on the fact that, like the United States of America, you have broken away from the authority figures of the world (parents, spouses, and all of the restrictions that inevitably come with them) and are a truly independent and sovereign nation unto yourself. That is definitely worth celebrating! Plus, you’re going to get a lot of invites to picnics and BBQs where you might just meet some other lone wolves looking for love. But what’s the best way for a single girl to celebrate a holiday that is predominantly geared towards family gatherings?
Perhaps you feel that tagging along to family affairs will only make you a fifth wheel. But try to remember that you’re not the only single person on the planet and you could end up having a lot of fun with your brother’s cute, available friends. That said, family-centric gatherings can be uncomfortable and snooze-worthy (especially if Uncle Eddy insists on singing the Star Spangled Banner every hour on the hour). And do you really want to subject yourself to recriminations from your mom and aunts about how your biological clock is ticking even though you’re only twenty-five? Please. You’re single and you love it! So why not throw your own shindig for other singles?
Get together some guy and girl friends that are equally leery of family fare and set up a mixer for this 4th of July. Take over a few picnic tables at the local park or camp out on lawn chairs in your front yard with burgers, beers, and some get-to-know-you games (a little dancing music couldn’t hurt either). Better yet, take your revelry to a campsite and have guests pitch a tent for the night so everyone can have a good time without the worry of driving home (and just see how many tents trade partners!). A singles mixer is a great way to have some holiday fun without trying to navigate those tricky familial waters. And don’t let mom lure you with her wicked-good potato salad, either (you can pick up some leftovers the next day).
You could also take advantage of ridiculously good sales to get that new convertible you’ve had your eye on. What do you have to lose? You’re single and you should celebrate the fact that you don’t have to drive an SUV to accommodate kids, pets, a spouse, sports equipment, and fifty pounds of groceries every week. So take a seat in the go-cart of a car that is the Miata (hard-top convertible, oh yeah) and think about how much you’ll enjoy driving solo.
Finally, there are the fireworks to consider (both in the sky and here on Earth)! Nothing is more romantic than parking it under the stars and laying a blanket on the hood to watch the proverbial rockets’ red glare and bombs bursting in air. If you do manage to nab a date, you can ensure some sparks of your own by getting intimate under the soft glow of shimmery sparklers and the heart-stopping reverberation of combustibles going boom! Being young and single certainly has its perks.

A first date can be nerve-wracking for even the most confident of guys. You want to impress her, but you don’t want to go over the top or appear too desperate or cocky. And while you can plan an extravagant, event-filled evening, you certainly don’t want to put too much pressure on an already stressful situation. This is why most first dates involve the getting-to-know-you standard of dining out, which allows for conversation (unlike a noisy bar or club) mixed with a functional distraction (focus on the food until you think of something witty to say). So the question then becomes: do you cough up the dough for a gourmet meal, or go for cheaper fare?
There are many reasons why going gourmet is the proper choice. First off, the majority of women like to be wined and dined. My husband took me to El Pollo Loco on our first date and left me wondering if I was loco for going along with it (although he maintains, to this day, that it wasn’t a “date”). I let him make it up to me, but you might not be so lucky. In addition, most women won’t admit it, but we’re on the lookout for a guy who can provide for us. Hey, don’t hate! It’s our biological imperative to find a man who will stick around and take care of the family he creates. Plus, we don’t spend two hours on our hair and makeup and try on everything in our closet just so we can scarf down some chicken McNuggets and biggie fries. We work hard to impress you and you should return the favor! Just keep in mind that a hefty price tag doesn’t necessarily equate to a suitable meal. Lobster and crab may be expensive, but you certainly won’t win any points by selecting an eatery that requires her to wear a plastic bib and wield a hammer. Finally, there is a reason men court the opposite sex. You know what it is. And while you might not get it anyway, substandard eats will pretty much guarantee you don’t get a second date, a goodnight kiss, or any other recompense (except maybe indigestion).
That said, there are certain situations in which taking it down a notch is warranted. The best reason is if you simply don’t have the money. If you thought taking her to a cheap restaurant was a mood-killer, just imaging what will happen if your card gets denied and she ends up paying for an expensive meal. If looks could kill, you’d be fricasseed boy-bits. You can also go a bit more casual if you tell her ahead of time. A jeans-and-t-shirt affair like dinner and a movie doesn’t require a four-star restaurant, and in fact, she might be uncomfortable if she feels under-dressed. But at least spring for sit-down dining (shoot for a step above low-cost chains like Denny’s at the minimum). If you’re worried about harsh judgment for your choice of cuisine, just let her pick the place (but be prepared to pay if you hand over the reins).
A first date can be an amazing, revelatory experience or it can seem like an eternity in Dante’s inferno. But you can try to start things off on the right foot by taking her out for a nice meal at a classy joint. At the very least, you will show your character and sophistication (you’ll be even more impressive if you can choose a fine wine, but don’t get too snobby with long-winded descriptions). From there you just have to let the evening play out and see if your personalities mesh, but there’s no doubt she’ll be more inclined to accept a second date if she doesn’t have to wash her mouth out with soap after the meal.
