What are some things you wish you had done (or you are glad you did) before you got into a long-term relationship or had children?

I'm a single lady in her early 30s. I have had long-term relationships, and one day I hope to get coupled up and have a kid or two. I sometimes find myself "waiting" for that dude to show up, and I feel like I could be using my time more wisely, and being more appreciative of the time i DO have on my own.
This isn't a dating question, exactly; I have faith that I have an active enough social life to meet The-Man-Of-My-Dreams, so I don't really need help looking for him. I AM curious about what other people (who are now in relationships or who are parents) wish they had done when they were single, or else were really grateful that they took advantage of when they were single. I'm hoping that this will inspire some new projects or ideas, or gratitude in me.
Any answers are welcome and appreciated; I'm mostly interested in things I can do while holding down a job in a city, rather than ditching my existing life to trek through the jungle (but if that is what you feel, by all means).
