Be young, be free and be single in London…
1. Rush Hour
There will never be a depressing empty seat next to you and you can legitimately push apart embracing couples.
2. Dans Le Noir
No one will see you sat alone in the dark.
3. The Cinema
Cinemas are also dark. (Just not the Electric. Electric has beds. For couples.)
4. Petting zoo
The Last Tuesday Society’s Petting Zoo on 10th-12th Feb is best done alone. Either to privately tackle fears of touching Sidney the corn snake or to have the sole attention of Huffty the blue-tongued skink.
5. Cannibal Exhibition
Scurvy, starvation, cannibalism and madness; single Londoners will feel a strong sense of empathy at the ‘Death in the Ice’ exhibition. Documenting Sir John Franklin’s fatal last journey into the arctic, it descends on the National Maritime museum this July.
You are more likely to get a free coffee when alone.
7. A Solo Supper Club
London is full of these cosy clubs where you can supper with strangers. Next up is a spice masterclass & sumptuous Indian supper with Ren’s kitchen on 22nd Feb.
8. Night Tube
Couples will have flaked on their friends by this time so you will not have to look at them.
You can eat a whole pot of hummus with a spoon and consider Hip Chips a legitimate dinner option and no-one can stop you.
10. The Theatre
The West End or Southbank, the Globe or Royal Court… there will always be a ticket for one.
11. Sex Salons at Coco de Mer
There’s one on 14th March called ‘Female Ejaculation and the G spot’.
12. Not getting a wax
Hahahahhahhahhah never again
Psycle classes are sweaty AND dark and the instructors give you motivational life speeches and describe Sunday classes as the ‘Sunday Service’. And, well, endorphins.
Definitely really happy being strong and single but a communal ball pit never hurts. Winter Happiness festival goes on till the 19th, before it ends. Like everything else.
