'Singledom' as it is would never be boring if you know what to do with it. In the same way that being alone does not mean you are lonely. YOLO (You Only Live Once) seems to be the mantra of singles who are experiencing fun at the spur of the momen. Also, many believe in "Carpe Diem", a latin word that means "seize the day."
Haven't experienced YOLO and Carpe Diem? No worries, here are list of the things you should do before you say "I do".
1. Learn A New Language
It is never easy and would always get the best of you. It is complicated but would be satisfying once you see the fruit of learning a new language. Being multi-lingual is also a big plus not just to your workplace but finding your Mr. and Ms. Right. Mandarin, French, Spanish and English are one of the most common languages learned by other people.
2. Save Money
The end goal of working should be relaxing during your golden ages. This one's hard for people who are committed to someone but would be a plus to single people. According to Relevant Magazine, many married people are advising all men and women who are not in a relationship to save as much as they can. Budgeting would be of great help to be able to save. "Pay now, play later" as they say.
3. Join a marathon
Marathon is running a long distance aiming to be on the finish line. This is not simple to people who are used of sitting in their office chair and facing their computers for long hours. But, this would be commendable for everyone who wants to strengthen their physical strength, mental perseverance and endurance.
4. Visit Countries From Each Continent
There are seven continents in the world and going to each one of it should be a checklist before you get married. Even Antartica should never be an exemption; there are cruises that offered a low cost to get there.
5. Try A New Sport
Trying a new sport is a great preparation in getting married. It is a way to get fit and maintain your ideal weight.

6. Overcome Your Fears
From your smallest up to your biggest fears, overcome it! It doesn't matter if it would be hard or would take a long time - as long as you get it done. Always take note that you should not let fear hold you back from unleashing your potential.
7. Give Without Any Expectations.
As someone would say, "it is better to give than to receive". Give something to a foundation, gave your old books to a bookworm or even help someone do their assignment. At first, it would be hard to let go of your things but this would all be worth it.
Start doing these seven "to-do" things on your bucketlist and see yourself transform to a better you.
