3. Single and thriving
You didn’t let cuffing season get the best of you and traveling somewhere new is the best kind of self-love for you, single pringle. Being a singleton means you’re independently owned and operated, so a fun warm destination with sparkling seas and white sand beaches like Croatia is the perfect place to jet-set to!

Whether you kayak through the crystal-clear Carribean waters or snorkel the Belize Barrier Reef you’ll enjoy every moment with your boo.
The distance is real… you haven’t seen your main squeeze in a while which means the time you do get together is super important. Long-distance relationships (LDRs) are tough, so pick a place like Canada that lets you experience new things and make new memories while giving you some much-needed QT together. Fresh mountain air? Check. Canoe along the River of Golden Dreams? Check. Sleep in the heart of the Canadian Rockies? Check. You and your long-distance lover will leave feeling refreshed with all the heart eyes.
