#5: Will I Find A Boyfriend?
Of course, you won’t have very much luck finding a guy if you stay cooped up at home. What’s more, while it’s OK to be a bit of a homebody and love the chill, Netflix-cheese-and-wine life, never getting out in the world doesn’t bode well for your prospects of coming across as interesting. After all, part of what shapes a person into something truly tantalizing are their own unique life experiences.
Virginia Woolf famously wrote that for a woman to consider a life in writing, she had to have A Room of One’s Own, which speaks to the issue of financial independence again. However, affording such a place and staying there day in and day out are different matters altogether. Woolf could never have written her many masterpieces without her own life experiences.
