It’s that time of the year again: When temperatures drop and couples get booed up and stay in due to the cold weather. But fall and winter don’t have to be dry spells for singles. Whether you’re looking for love or a winter cuddle buddy, here’s how to win in the romance department this fall and winter.

Go Online

When it comes to going out and meeting people, the dating scene can get frosty during the colder months. But fall and winter are actually the peak seasons for online dating sites.

Go On Vacation

A week or so spent somewhere sunny will put a smile back on your face and encourage you to put yourself out there. And everyone will notice your new glow, making this the perfect time to tackle the single’s scene again.

Consider Speed Dating

With everyone usually staying indoor during the cold months, speed dating is the key to meeting a lot of potential partners at once.

Find A Killer Party Outfit

The holiday season is full of parties with eligible singles. And a killer outfit (or two) will give you the confidence you need to take advantage of all of those dating opportunities.

Stick To Coffee Dates

Did you know that people drink more during the colder months? Consider starting with a coffee date to avoid the chance that your nerves will accidentally turn you up a little too much on a first date.

Avoid Your Ex

Fall and winter holidays bring about a lot of emotions. If you feel like you and your ex are on the verge of getting back together and repeating past mistakes, consider just keeping things cordial until spring rolls around again.

But Consider Your Childhood Crush

Going home this holiday season? Finally going on a date with an old flame from high school is a great self-esteem booster (and a chance to see what you’ve been missing out on).

Try The 12 Dates of Christmas

Trying to turn a winter fling into something more serious? Add your own personal touch to this great date series idea! It will bring the both of you closer by the time Christmas comes around.

Shop And Flirt

If you’re going to spend most of the holiday season at the mall, why not make it double as dating grounds? Plus, you have the perfect opener for any attractive single man: “Hey, I’m shopping for my dad/brother. Can I get your opinion on something?”

Head Out On A Weeknight

You’ll be surprised at the number of singles you can find quietly sipping whiskey on a Wednesday night at your neighborhood bar. And these low-key nights are perfect for striking up conversations and getting to know new people.

Get Dressed Up For The Airport

You never know who you’ll spot when you’ve got hours to waste waiting for a flight. Need an opener? Ask them to watch your bag while you head to Hudson News and then strike up a conversation when you return.

Buy The Wax Package

It can be tempting to let it all grow out during the colder months, but regularly scheduled (and pre-paid) waxing appointments will keep you confident when your next date night rolls around.

Follow The Gift-Giving Rules

Confused about how to navigating new relationships during the gift-giving season? Thank goodness there’s a guide.

Buy Sensual Underwear

Even long-term relationships can suffer a chill during the cold months. Lack of sunlight is known to bring sex drives down, but a trip to Victoria Secret’s can heat things right back up.
