Dating holidays for single people
Stick to your guns, and you’ll also find that you’ll have that air of mystery and just-available-enough-but-not-overly-available sensibility that many find to be a turn-on.
Since the holidays are often filled with parties and get-togethers, use these to your advantage!
Also, this strategy will allow you to make the most efficient use of your time since you can tell person X that you can meet for coffee for 30 minutes or a drink for 45.
Then, you won’t have to worry about getting sucked into hearing someone’s life story for four hours over dinner or missing a fun holiday party with your friends because your date went longer than expected.
Reaching any goal requires making consistent effort, and dating is no exception.
Especially during the holidays when your social calendar is overflowing with to-do’s, your time can seem even more precious than ever.
Or, you could even organize your own fundraiser to hold at a church or other group that you already belong to but could be more active in.
It can be easy to tuck yourself into your shell and wallow in self-pity about being single during the holidays, but you have to overcome the temptation to eat ice cream in bed alone on your free nights if you want the chance at sex or romance.The biggest mistake I see people make — and I've done this myself — is panicking as December quietly approaches and looking to cuddle up to the first warm body in sight.Acting in a state of desperation is never going to get you anywhere and will probably leave you feeling worse about being single than you did before you tried to get said warm body on lockdown.To avoid this panic, define what you’re looking for.Do you hope to get into a serious, long-term relationship with someone who shares your goals and values?
