When it comes to owning a car, truck, van, SUV, or any other automobile, it can be the most freeing experience known to man. That is, aside from owning a private jet, of course. Joke aside, owning a car represents having real freedom, for the first time in many cases. After all, having spent your formative years unable to drive and forced to ride, you had little to no say over your destinations. However, now you have the freedom and autonomy to make those decisions, so what you do with that freedom is up to you. Here are a few suggestions of ways to make your car work for you.
First and foremost, consider your car a type of social currency. For example, I grew up with a friend group that had pretty much just the one guy with a license and a car, and he was the life blood of that friend group. He would take us all home after school, for starters, and also take us on many an adventure during high school. You could be this friend to your group. Simply be willing to grab some tickets from StubHub and take your crew out for dinner and a movie. This is sure to impress your friends and allow you to serve them in a way that cements you as the cornerstone of the group.
Likewise, having a nice car opens romantic doors, as well. For one thing, dating is simply easier with a set of wheels. After all, dates involve some degree of travel, and the faster that travel the better. And, your date would like to picked up by you and shown that you care. Likewise, a nice car speaks volume to your personality for dates to reference. For example, a clean car says that you have a good eye for detail and work for the finer things in life.
