When you’re in a serious relationship, girls’ nights are usually few and far between. After all, spending a Friday or Saturday night partying when there’s a cute guy at home is less appealing and less likely than it used to be. When girls’ nights do happen, they’re awesome. Sure, they’re different than when you were single, but there are still things that are a must for these amazing evenings.

  1. Get all gussied up. You aren’t doing it to find another guy, you’re doing it for you! Break out the glittery skirt and stripper heels, wear way too much makeup, and do your hair up like a beauty queen. This is your night.
  2. Have that second (or third, or even fourth) drink. You don’t get to do this often, so get a little tipsy, and have a great, drunken time. You may pay for it tomorrow, but it’s nothing a little aspirin and water can’t solve!
  3. Dance like an idiot. Girl, go get your twerk on. You probably won’t see too many of these people ever again, so let loose and get low. Dancing is great exercise, and it makes you happy and thirsty — perfect for another drink!
  4. Let that guy buy you a drink (as long as you watched it get poured and delivered to you). You’re hot, and you know you have a man at home. If a guy chooses to buy you a drink, that’s on him and you don’t owe him anything. You didn’t force him, and who doesn’t love free stuff?
  5. Sing to that Beyoncé song with the girls at the top of your lungs. We all love a little Queen B in the club, right? Duh. So grab the ladies, get to the middle of the floor, and sing your heart out. Nothing is better therapy than that.
  6. Find an awesome bartender and tip him well. Chances are, you’ll seek out the cutest bartender and when you do, be sure to tip him really well the first two rounds. You’ll be guaranteed to receive stronger drinks, and maybe even a few for free if you’re nice, respectful, and generous.
  7. Take a million pictures. They’ll have to be deleted and never posted to any social media platform ever because you’re all a hot mess, but take those photos anyway, kissy face and all. Maybe don’t show your boyfriend, though.
  8. Make friends with the DJ. You only get to do this every now and then, so if you want to hear your jams, get cozy with the DJ. He’ll probably appreciate a bunch of pretty girls around him and you’ll get to hear your favorite songs. It’s a win-win situation.
  9. Stay out all night. If your boyfriend is occupied himself, then go ahead and shut down the club and stay out as late as you want. You probably haven’t done that in a while, and you may lose the rest of the weekend to sleep, but it’s fun and will remind you of your younger self.
  10. 3 Words: Late night pizza. There’s literally nothing better on a late night out than pizza at 3 or 4 am. Forget about the calories or what eating before bed may or may not do to you and eat that cheese slice before slurping down a large soda. Your boyfriend will be glad if you don’t come home sloppy drunk, and food helps keep that from happening.
  11. Hydrate! A good rule of thumb is a glass of water for every drink you consume. So between vodka and cranberries, suck down some H20. Your head, boyfriend, and body will thank you for it in the morning.
  12. Call a cab. A DUI would not be the ideal ending to ladies’ night, so leave the car at home and call a cab! Plus, you’ll never hear the end of it from your bf if you drive home under the influence.
