So…the holiday season is upon us. You’re single, you wish you weren’t, and you refuse to be sad or lonely this year. Yes? Okay, no sweat—Cupid’s Coach is bursting with suggestions and solutions for approaching the season solo…or maybe not so much solo….
Say Yes, Smile and Schmooze. Accept all of the party invitations that come your way. What? You don’t want to show up at the party alone? Just Do It. Go Solo. I mean it…get comfortable going to an event on your own. Holiday parties are the very best events to go to stag—bring a sweet little gift for the host and make it your mission to walk right up and bring a smile to the face of each and every person in the room.
TIP: Play “waiter” by picking up a tray of appetizers, champagne or eggnog and waltz right up to that group of “strangers” to offer up some tantalizing goodies. Focus outward; bring the party to life with your smile and your spirit of contribution.
Meet Some New Men. Quickest, best way to bring some new MEN into your life? Plan a Plus One Party—invite a group of single women you’ve been wanting to know better, and have each of them bring an unattached man to share—a co-worker, colleague, neighbor, ex-boyfriend. The more women you invite…the more men you’ll get to meet.
TIP: Gather and share contact information with each person who attends to beef up that black book.
Girl Time. Balance out your flirting activities by planning some heart-warming gatherings with the women who feel like soul sisters to you. Conspire with a gal pal to choose the date and the place and invite a handful or a bunch of women who touch and inspire you, then bring them together for a gift-wrapping party, wine tasting or cookie baking.
Give. Balance out your “me-me-me” activities and parties with a couple of never-before-experienced volunteer or charity adventures. Easy to find, too; type in your city on Charity-Charities.org, and you’ll be amazed at the love-inspired gatherings that are happening in your backyard.
Give More. Have a real adventure this year planning out your gift giving. Really do it right this time. Make a list of all the most important people in your life and find a way to touch each of them. A card written with care, a phone call, a thoughtful gift…or what will likely matter the most: the gift of your presence.
