Topic: What’s the best thing about being single during the holidays…and the best thing about being coupled up over the holidays?
Posted by: Aly Walansky
I feel like I touched on a lot of this last week, so my answer doesn't very much change - being single over the holidays is hard. But it's also freeing.
For instance, as a member of the media, I'm invited to tons of holiday events this time of year. And the lack of a date means often bringing my girl friends - which is fun in its own way, but sort of makes us stick out as the sad single lot.
Are we sad? Well,not exactly. And singleness means being able to stay as long as you want, and act as silly as you want, and not get a talk the next day. It means making choices and plans based on your schedule - and not having to coordinate with the boyfriend's job/plans/friends.
Yeah, I'm reaching. It sucks. Especially when NYE rolls around, and you're hugging your buds after they are done making out with their date. And you are just wishing for your fate to be changed by Valentines Day. Cause that'd be even worse.
Well, if you are single, you get to meet someone under the mistletoe. And that's a hot story to tell. Of course, if you had someone to kiss under the mistletoe in the first place, well, that'd be far hotter...
