The holidays are just around the corner and if you are single it can be a bit of a rough time. This is because you will probably have to attend a number of holiday events all of which will be filled with couples, serving as yet another reminder that you haven’t found the right person yet. Instead of focusing on that fact you should instead embrace social situations confidently and with an open mind. Remember you have control over your own thoughts and you get to decide whether you want to act like a single person feeling lonely or be the life of the party. Here are a few tips on how to fly solo over Christmas.
The best thing about being single is you get to decide how you celebrate Christmas and with whom you spend the holidays with. This means there is no need to have to hang out with a partner’s parents and extended family so no awkward conversations are necessary. You should take full advantage of being single and accept any invitation you receive. Who knows you may even meet someone at one of the parties.
Embrace being single
There is no way you can avoid conversations relating to your relationship status over the Christmas season. The best way to handle this is to bring it up yourself so everyone can move on to other topics of discussion sooner rather than later. You don’t need to spend a huge amount of time discussing your relationship status and instead you can talk about all the great things happening in your life. That way all your friends will know you are doing just fine.
Go on a date
Remember you aren’t the only one flying solo over the holidays, there are plenty of other single people out there, so use the opportunity to go on a date. Online dating platforms like eharmony are a great way to meet potential partners over the holidays and it can be a lot of fun. Remember there are lots of events that take place in the final week of the year, and you may even find someone special who you can bring with you to holiday parties.
Spend your holidays with loved ones
The great thing about flying solo over Christmas is you can use the holidays to spend more time with the most important people in your life, whether they are your closest friends or immediate family. Remember this is when you get to focus on those that you love and can spend quality time with them and appreciate that fact. In the end the best way to fly solo through the holiday season is to stay positive and having friends and family around is a great way to do that.
