The holidays are crazy and fast-paced. There is not much time think about anything else, especially trying to find someone new to start a relationship with. You should look for new love over the holidays though. Here are four reasons why you shouldn’t push romance to the side during the hustle and bustle of this special time of the year.
1. Many people take a break from romance during the winter so there are more single people out there. Your chances are much better at finding someone when there are more fish in the sea and less people fishing. Update social media sites with photos of yourself in winter or holiday gear. If you participate in a certain winter sport such as skiing make sure you post these photos online so that you have a better chance of attracting someone with the same interests.
2. Make sure that people know about your status as “single”. Post it to social media sites and try to connect with other single people. As tempting as it may be to find a date in a hurry for an upcoming party it is better that you go alone. This way you are there as a single person and can find another person to chat with instead of having to stay with someone all night that you have no interest in.
3. Get into online dating. Try a speed dating event. Go on casual dates during the month of December to get back into the swing of dating so that you can find someone more serious in January when everyone makes their New Year’s resolution to find true love.
4. If you cannot stomach the thought of going to a party alone, date a few people casually and then pick one that you think that you would have the best time with at a party and bring them. You never know what could happen!
