Brace yourselves, Christmas is coming.
For some people this is the most beautiful time of the year. They can’t wait to spend Christmas Eve with their loved ones. They can’t wait to sit in front of the chimney and whisper “I love you” into the ear of the person they love the most.
There is one thing that these people have in common. They are all in a relationship. Seriously, I don’t know anyone who is in a happy relationship and who doesn’t look forward to the Christmas holidays.
On the other hand, I also don’t know anyone who is single who looks forward to this time of the year. I mean, let’s be honest. It sucks to be single at Christmas. No matter if you switch on the TV or if you leave your apartment, you are surrounded by happy couples.
But don’t worry. Don’t give up on the thought that you can experience a wonderful holiday time. There are still a lot of things you can do and some of them can actually lead you into the arms of your dream partner.
Meet People in the Big Shopping Malls
If you want to meet someone, you should go to places with a lot of people. It should be obvious that the chance to find your special someone is higher when you talk to twenty people instead of two people.
And where are the most people at this time of the year?
They are in the big shopping malls.
It’s the beginning of December. People are slowly starting to search for the perfect present for their parents and siblings. Go to one of the big malls and make eye contact with someone you like while you pretend to look for a present. This is the most natural way to meet someone during the Christmas holidays.
Go on a Single Vacation
Are you afraid that you have to spend Christmas Eve with your grumpy uncle Carl and your nosy mother who asks you about your relationship life?
You don’t have to do it if you don’t want to.
I promise you that an adventurous single vacation will be way more exciting for you. Come on, fly to a tropical island and have a great time with other singles. And who knows, you might meet the love of your life on this trip.
Meet People at Christmas Theme Parties
Everyone thinks that the Christmas holidays are a terrible time for singles, but that’s not true. It’s only terrible if you don’t leave the house. If you, however, go to an exciting Christmas theme party, it this time of the year can be unforgettable.
I don’t know any big club that doesn’t offer special Christmas parties. Just go there with a smile and a Santa hat and you will meet more amazing people than you can possibly imagine.
Have a Crazy Time in a Ski Resort
Ski resorts are well known for crazy parties. Everyone who has ever been to an après-ski event knows what I’m talking about. The combination of fun music and delicious mulled wine can easily lead to unforgettable party nights.
And don’t worry. It doesn’t matter that you don’t know how to ski. The only thing that matters is that you know how to have a great time.
Try Online Dating During the Christmas Holidays
Do you really think that you are the only one who is lonely during this time of the year?
Of course not!
There are millions of people who hate the through that they have to spend the Christmas holidays alone. And thanks to all the romantic Christmas movies, the majority of these people feel ten times lonelier than they felt four weeks prior.
Some of them hope to meet the partner of their dreams in one of the biggest malls, while others are smart enough to sign up on an online dating site where they can meet singles who all have the same problem.
Everyone who is single is afraid to spend this time alone. And even more people join online dating sites right after Christmas. You can believe me when I say that this is the easiest time of the year to meet people online.
Last-Minute Shopping for Love
I love to observe people and one thing that I observed is that when it comes to choosing Christmas presents, couples shop different than singles.
Please correct me if I’m wrong, but when you are a in a relationship, you usually walk around the city looking for presents with your partner. And you usually do it at least one week before Christmas Eve. You enjoy walking around, holding hands and looking at all the nice things you can buy.
As a single you do it a bit different. Shopping alone is boring and that’s why you procrastinate until it is nearly too late. You then go one day before Christmas Eve.
What’s the moral of the story?
If you go shopping right before Christmas Eve, you have the best chance to meet a lot of singles.
Go to Christmas Events in Your Social Circle
Of course there’s also an alternative to meeting the love of your life during a last-minute shopping trip. This alternative is your social circle.
I am sure that you have good friends who would love to hang out at the Christmas market or spend some time drinking mulled wine at their homes. And I am also sure that a lot of them have attractive friends who they could invite.
Believe it or not but an evening with your friends can easily lead to a romantic first date.
