Hey, I know I know it’s the holiday season. The trees are bare, the sky is gray and it’s flat out cold outside. It’s truly a beautiful time of the year. Could it be better if you’re sharing it with a special sweetheart? Sure it can. Here are 6 great tips from Alex Wise from Loveawake matchmaking service to help you find that “special sweetheart” during the holiday season. Enjoy!
Calling in ALL invitations!
Hey it’s the holiday season so of course just about everyone is having or going to a holiday event. I’m sure you have friends and really nice co-workers who have extended invitations to you to come along for the fun, so take them up on it! That’s right from November 25th until New Year’s there should never be a dull moment and a great opportunity to meet an abundance of people at a variety of places. Hopefully you’re not just drinking eggnog at every party.
Shop! Shop! Shop!
I read somewhere that shopping during the holiday is good. The malls and shops are bustling with people and not just couples either. There are tons of single people out shopping and looking for fun single people to connect with. More so, shopping not only gives you a chance to treat yourself to something nice but, you get to have fun people watching as others are totally stressed out trying to find the perfect gift. Just try not to shop too much; you don’t want to be paying for it a year from now…with interest.
Coffee, Tea, or Coco
I’m not a big fan of coffee but, I do appreciate hot chocolate… with marsh mellows…and whip cream. Believe it or not hanging out at a Starbucks or any coffee shop is a great place to meet someone during the holiday season. Everyone is feeling warm and cozy as they settle into the crowded intimate setting to sip their warm beverage. What a great opportunity to do a little innocent flirting and spark some “sweet” conversation.
Don’t date someone just because
One thing is for sure, don’t date someone just because they’re available and so are you. You really should never do this but, especially not around the holidays. I know it can be tough at times and maybe even lonely but trust me if you slip in to this pitfall, you will regret it sooner than later. You really don’t want to bring in the New Year with this kind of bang.
Have a positive outlook
Believe it or not, having a positive outlook during the holidays even if you’re not dating someone is a really powerful practice. Typically when you’re positive and sincere you attract harmonious surroundings and attractive people (inside and out). These kinds of vibrations can sometimes manifest into flirtatious eye contact, a phone number exchange and if you’re really lucky, and they holiday punch is really good…you may even get a little mistletoe action.
Throw a party
When all else fails, which it shouldn’t but if you’re just not feeling the malls, the coffee shop, and you don’t have money to shop, throw a party and invite everybody you know…need I say more?
