How to Spend Halloween as a Single Woman

Halloween is that one day of the year when it’s completely acceptable to wave your freak flag. You can go to work as a super hero, out to dinner as a naughty cat or party at your neighborhood bar as a French maid. Halloween is awesome!

But what do you do if you’re unattached? How do you celebrate All Hallows’ Eve as a single woman?

Here are three great ideas for those single ladies wanting to kick it up a notch.

1. Hand out candy.

Sure, Halloween is fun as an adult, but do you know what’s even better? Halloween as a kid.

Remember how excited you were to get all dressed up and walk around your neighborhood on the hunt for a full pillowcase of chocolate and gummies?

If you’re having a hard time celebrating this holiday without a boyfriend, then make it about someone else. Make fun gift bags for the neighborhood kids and instantly become the cool neighbor.

2. Throw a party.

Why wait for someone else to invite you to a Halloween bash? Throw your own. Plan early so your friends don’t commit to another soiree. And go all out!

Create a special cocktail like a pumpkin martini and play old school fall games like bobbing for apples. You won’t even remember you’re single when you celebrate Halloween with 40 of your closest friends.

3. Find a local event.

No matter where you live, chances are there are dozens if not hundreds of local Halloween events going on.

Pick up your city’s alternative weekly magazine or troll the Web to find which bars, restaurants and nightclubs will be showcasing costume contests, special spooky music, drink specials and plenty of members of the opposite sex.

There’s no excuse for being a bore when Halloween comes around. It doesn’t matter if you’re single, engaged or about to celebrate your 50th wedding anniversary. Put together the most creative (and sexy) costume you can muster and have fun!

    Honestly, i love halloween especially when it means you can do a party. I’m from miami, FL so it takes a while for it to cool off down here but if it’s nice enough for a fire pit to start burning I’ve had ppl come over and make smores. It’s the best when everyone’s dressed up and sippin on gummy martinis ;)
