Why Being Single During The Holidays Pays Off

Okay – so the holiday season can be a bummer if you don’t have that special someone to share that amazing kiss under the mistletoe. But the truth is that you might be missing out on the best part of being single during a time when couples typically put up a front to ward off curious stares or inquisitive minds who may sense that all is not well in paradise.

Tis the season to be merry! And that isn’t just a quote – it actually means something. This is the period to take advantage of the holiday parties that are making their way to you in quick succession. Even after the presents have been opened and Christmas dinner makes its conversion to leftovers, you still have enough time to maximize the days you have left in the year.

The odds are in your favor when it comes to snatching up a willing participant because, quite frankly, everyone is basically in a euphoric state – which translates to “anything is possible.” Instead of giving into the impulses of self-pity and envy, this is when you should step outside of your boundaries and be adequately adventurous. Think of it as a neverending party that will continue even after that ball drops. Your disposition can manifest a reality that surpasses what you could have ever imagined.

You are not attached to anyone, which means that you have your pick of where to go and you thankfully have no restrictions.

This is also a time when people are feeling quite generous not just with money but also with their time. Everyone wants to go out of their way for people they feel need their assistance. So you can enjoy the benefits of your singldom by indulging on well-meaning set ups. You could be going on a range of dates that might unexpectedly unearth Prince Charming. You can’t underestimate the value of making sure you are open to meeting the recommendations being handed to you on a silver platter.

Dates this time of year are almost always going to be somewhat memorable and enjoyable. No guy wants to take a girl out during the holidays unless he plans on showing her a good time. No matter what city you are in – the festive hype fills the air in a way that most certainly inspires romantic tendencies. As a single gal, you have the ability to take advantage of that reality and enjoy the ride repeatedly.

The holidays should be a time to explore the possibilities and have a ton of fun doing it. Not having a partner during the holidays should never be a reason to feel inadequate or pathetic. Most of your friends who are taken won’t admit it but they are secretly wishing for the freedom you harbor. You get to seize the “tidings of good cheer” in a literal way – and there is no level of censorship. You are not being policed by someone else’s preference.

The season belongs to you and you can manipulate it to serve your purpose. So get out there and make the rest of 2014 count!
