I love living in Los Angeles. The weather is gorgeous, people are active, and there are too many interesting experiences to have - with ourselves! I say 'with ourselves' because I believe it is important not to miss out on any of the best moments in life, simply because someone else may not want to join. Man, I have had some of the most incredible, memorable days and evenings on selfie dates!
For instance, last evening I treated myself to my very first pop up dinner party in downtown, LA. courtesy of Dinner Party Association, hosted by Little Meats LA. Little Meats LA brings amazing people together, to have amazing food-centric experiences. They exist in a funky, creative loft space in artsy DTLA. I was introduced to the Little Meats concept, by A Toast To Artistry (another creative company that has a loft just a few steps away). Last night's dinner was organized by Megan Ranager of Dinner Party Association. The menu was an adult spin on summer camp fare. Delicious and fun! I chatted it up with an engaging, diverse bunch of foodies. I don't know if there is an easier way to break through slightly awkward social moments, than with a bottle of wine and yummy treats. This kind of event is the best kind of selfie date because it forces you to interact and network with people who all have at least one thing in common - the appreciation of good eats.
Do yourself a favor and venture out into the unknown. Take yourself on a date. Start with something simple like a painting class, or lunch. Learning to enjoy your own company is a great gift.
