New Term: “Masterdating” Is Splurging on Elaborate Solo Dates
It used to seem kind of sad to see someone out at a fancy restaurant all alone. But now we’re embracing it, apparently . . .
The hot new term for taking YOURSELF out on elaborate dates is . . . “MASTERDATING.”
TikTok is all over the trend, but it doesn’t just include dates. It might also involve buying yourself nice gifts . . . or even sending yourself flowers.
One expert suggests sending flowers in the morning, with a card that says, “Can’t wait to see you tonight.” (???)
The point is to love YOU as a person, and realize you deserve to go have a good time, even when you’re not dating anyone.
You really have to embrace it though. If you just end up sitting at a nice restaurant feeling self-conscious, it can backfire.
