Spending alone time is the best time. At least my fellow introvert’s can agree. However, extroverts are always out there like “you should come out more” or “why don’t you ever party with us”. Well instead of making up some excuse about why you’re going to have to cancel, you can finally have a real prior commitment.
You ARE attending a party. Just not their party. It’s your own party. And when those extroverts ask to join in the party festivities, let them know that the list is full.
You can’t help that the best party of the year is so exclusive.
But in your opinion it has the perfect amount of people there. One. It’s you. It’s glorious. And silent. And full of snacks. Perfection.

A party for one is not depressing. It’s the most god damn amazing thing that could possibly exist in this world.
HOWEVER! A party for one does not mean that you should slack off and allow your party to be super lame. There may only be one guest in attendance but it’s an important guest. And you should treat yourself as such.
You have been around extroverts and people all freaking week. It’s time to pamper yourself and do this party right.
What does that include?
Well the perfect party includes 3 things. Decorations. Food. Entertainment. Don’t fall flat on your own party. Let’s dive into it to make this literally the only party you didn’t hate.
Introvert Party Step 1: Decorations
Fairy Curtain Lights
We all know that lighting is key when it comes to creating the right atmosphere. Well an introvert’s party requires a calm, rejuvenating vibe.
For that reason, some twinkly curtain lights are a must. Soft lighting gets you ready for your movie binging and indulging on a giant cookie for one.
Candles. They’re glorious. Calming. And they smell nice.
And when you’re an introvert, trust me when I say that this candle will speak for you.
We all love burrito-ing in a soft cozy blanket. But now you can actually become a burrito with this amazing blanket. Seriously, it’s like all my dreams come true. Take the experience to the next level by heating it in the dryer before wrapping yourself up.
Big Ass Comfy Chair
Technically, this isn’t a chair, but it’s even better tbh. It’s a giant floor pillow that’ll make any living room the epitome of comfort and relaxation.
Hear me out on this okay. Don’t think of this as a costly expense. Think of it as an investment on your future. It holds you more comfortably than any boyfriend could and leaves enough space for your pets to snuggle with you too.
Spending hours recharging from socialization has never been better with this giant bean bag. Sounds dramatic? It’s not. It’s just the truth. Pair it will a soft pillow and some blankets and no one will find you for days as you sink into a soft cloud of human avoidance.
Introvert Party Step 2: Entertainment
A Good Mug because how are you supposed to be a stereotypical introvert without the classic cup of tea or cocoa.
Your very own Ice Cream Spoon because you know the only men you plan on entertaining tonight are Ben and Jerry.
Big Ass Snack Bowl because the little one just ain’t gonna cut it. May I suggest a big ass salad bowl like this one? Works for me every time.
Honestly I just like justifying eating a full bag of chips and claiming I only ate a bowl. I’m seriously winning at these #adultinghacks.
And finally you’re going to need some books, movies, music, art, silence….whatever tickles your fancy.
Maybe you like to dance around in your underwear to Taylor Swift (hey, same. No judgement). Just get your favorite relaxing (and indoor) hobbies together and just enjoy them.
No need to be productive. You are snuggled in your giant bean bag, with a salad bowl of chips, and hours of New Girl to watch. You are relaxed. Rest is productive.
Introvert Party Step 3: Food + A Cookie For One
Snacking isn’t just something we do. It’s a way of life. Food filters into every aspect of our lives. Why do you think food blogs and food shows are so popular?
We literally live for food. So how could we expect to throw a party without snacks? We can’t.
These recipes are seriously an introvert’s dream come true:
Giant Chocolate Chip Cookie For One
And now the moment you’ve been waiting for…the giant chocolate cookie for one.
Why is this recipe so amazing? Well, because it makes only ONE cookie (albeit a large cookie but whatevs) that’s perfectly soft and chewy and stuffed full of chocolate chips.
Plus clean up is a breeze because you only need one bowl, one pan, and one mouth to finish it off.
One bowl, one cookie, for one person, can you even imagine something more amazing recipe for hosting your very own introvert party?
Literally, this recipe was made for you.
Fun little side note…
This cookie only requires one egg YOLK so you need to make sure you have the capability to separate your eggs. My favorite kitchen tool is actually this fun egg separator. I got the fish one several Christmas’s ago and I seriously am in love with it but they also have a pig and frog one too.
Chocolate Chip Cookie for One
- 2 tbsp butter melted and cooled slightly
- 1½ tbsp sugar
- 1½ tbsp Brown sugar
- 1 egg yolk
- ½ tsp vanilla extract
- 4 tbsp all purpose flour
- ¼ tsp baking soda
- ⅛ tsp salt
- ¼ cup chocolate chips
- Preheat your oven to 350°F and line a cookie sheet with a silicone baking mat.
- In a microwave safe bowl, melt your butter. Let the melted butter cool for about 5 minutes. (Make sure your butter isn't HOT, because hot butter will start to cook your egg- which, ew). Add in your sugars and stir until smooth. Then add your vanilla and egg yolk stirring until just combined.
- Add in your flour, salt, and baking soda and mix until a soft dough forms. Fold in your chocolate chips.
- Form one big ball of dough and place it in the middle of your baking sheet.
- Bake your cookie 10-12 minutes. Allow to cool for about 5 minutes (or don't, if you're into burning the roof of your mouth) and then enjoy!!
We all need time to recharge and get some alone time. (Yes even all you extroverts).
Turn your phone on “do not disturb”, kick back in your amazingly cozy apartment, put on some music, and just chill.
Who needs a social gathering when all of you’re already at your favorite place on earth? (I’m talking about your home in case that wasn’t clear).
So once you’ve made this giant chocolate chip cookie for one and thrown yourself a successful introvert party, take a pic, post it on the gram and make sure to tag me (@thefulfillmentpill)! I love seeing you creations and really, if you don’t post it on Instagram, did it even happen?

Introverts need to have each other’s backs while simultaneously staying away from each other, so the link share on social media because I know we won’t be sharing by word of mouth.
