Once upon a time, being single between the months of November and February could make a gal feel like a social misfit. Thank goodness times have changed!
How to Celebrate Being Single
Own your independence.
Instead of dreading the office holiday party
, your married-with-children friends’ celebratory soiree or spending yet another holiday season with the family (and no boyfriend), why not embrace your independence? Chances are that being single is temporary so celebrate every moment of it! You're not tied down with kids. You don't have a husband or boyfriend to consider. Yet, instead of spending any of your fabulous single gal time envying your coupled up friends, why not make the happily hooked envy you? Stay out a little later than usual. Flirt a little more. Or better yet, go on that singles ski weekend and make it your mission to meet as many eligible hotties as possible. From the chair lift to the ski slopes to the ski lodge, the possibilities are endless.
Learn to work a room.
You bought the fabulous dress. And
the shoes and purse to match. But to really celebrate being single during the holidays, you owe it to yourself to learn how to work a room
. Make your solo entrance into any gathering with confidence. Sashay across the room trusting that all eyes are on you. (Even if they're not, work it like they are!) Make eye contact with cute strangers. If they smile at you, strike up a conversation. If there happens to be mistletoe, even better! Remember, it doesn't matter if you meet the man of your dreams or a handful of Mr. Wrongs this holiday season. What's important is to own your independence and work being single.
