Single amp Fabulous Things You Must do before You Marry ...

By Samantha

If there is one ‘life lesson’ which I learned from the series and the film “**Sex and the City**” - it is that it’s okay to be **single **& **fabulous **even if you’re on your late 20’s, early 30’s or even your (gasp!) 40’s.

Next year, I’ll be hitting the big 3-0 but thank goodness to all those online articles, movies and magazines that I’ve been reading, I know well enough to not succumb to the pressure of being engaged at my age.

Now, if you’re like me who’s still waiting for that guy who will slip a (hopefully) huge rock on your finger -here are some things that you can do in the meantime.

Take a look at’s list of the things that you must do before you marry:

Table of contents:

  1. get in touch with your ‘masculine’ side
  2. treat yourself lavishly
  3. have the guts to finally ask that guy that you’ve been eyeing out for a drink
  4. be as ‘girly’ as you want with your place and take solace in your space while you still own it
  5. lastly, be the best bridesmaid that you can be

5 Get in Touch with Your ‘masculine’ Side

No, I do not mean that you should wear a suit and don a fake mustache so that you would know how it feels to be a member of the opposite sex. Get some grease on your hands by learning how to change tires by yourself. Or, you can learn how to fix a leaky faucet, change a lightbulb or even nail a picture to the wall -by yourself! You will feel a sense of accomplishment by doing these tasks on your own. Once you’re married, that’s the time that you can assign those messy chores to the man of the house.

4 Treat Yourself Lavishly

If you’ve been working ultra-hard for the past few months without even taking a vacation - singlehood is a good a time as any to spend a lavish amount of money for yourself. Whether it is a trip to an exotic location, a ridiculously expensive bag, dressor pair of shoes, or a weekend in a luxurious spa - go ahead and splurge because you deserve it.

3 Have the Guts to Finally Ask That Guy That You’ve Been Eyeing out for a Drink

The rule is that he should be: single, gorgeous with an oh-so-sexy smile and body. It doesn’t matter if you just end up talking about the weather and staring at each other for a half an hour. A little harmless date and flirtation never hurts -and it is something that you should definitely experience before saying “I do.”

2 Be as ‘girly’ as You Want with Your Place and Take Solace in Your Space While You Still Own It

You know it's great being single as once you say yes to a marriage proposal, your space will never be your own anymore. While you still can - decorate your apartment with as much** frilly stuff as you want. Take care of a really expensive **breed of cat, go all-out in your holiday décor, buy a huge poster of a hot celeb in his undies and hang it on your bedroom wall, hog the bed while you still can, hang your lingerie in the bedroom and put all your beauty products on the bathroom cabinet. You will not be able to do these things anymore once you’re already sharing a home with **the Mister! **

1 Lastly, Be the Best Bridesmaid That You Can Be

Be a bridesmaid-zilla and help your best friend plan her wedding. This is a great time for you to obsess about the tiny details and plan your own dream wedding at the back of your mind. There is no use letting your fiancée see you in all your bridezilla glory -so get it out of your system now!
