Single Status Has You Blue? How to Cope This Holiday

If being single during the holiday season has you blue, here’s some advice on how to cope.

If the weather outside is frightful and being single during the holidays is not very delightful, let it go, let it go, let it go! But what if you can’t? What if you want to eat Ferrero Rocher chocolates all day and night and wallow in your single gal sorrow? I get it. The holidays are a terrible reminder that you have yet to meet your romantic match. It’s tough to sit around a fireplace and sing Christmas carols when said carolers are going at it under the mistletoe. Bah humbug!

But before you kill Santa because he has yet to deliver you a boo (and that makes you angry!) here’s how to cope with the single gal holiday blues.

Buy yourself gifts. You are fabulous, which is why you deserve as many presents as married women receive. Buy yourself something pretty. Wrap it up in a bow and make sure it’s expensive. This gift should be a gift from you to you. It also sets the standard for your future husband. He better start saving.

Unfriend Exes on FB
Being Facebook friends with exes doesn’t do you any good during the holiday season, as we tend to reminisce about the good old days. Social media can also depress us when we don’t have what others share – like a relationship. So unfriend your exes! You will feel sweet relief when you’re not bombarded by photos of his Christmas with his new girl, or wife, or kids.

Control the Mistletoe
Who says you can’t control the mistletoe? Buy one and take it to holiday parties.Choose who to kiss. It will make for a great holiday story. Maybe you’ll choose right and kiss your next true love.

Have a Singles Holiday Bash
Most people spend time with family and husbands and children. So why not throw a singles holiday bash in your home? Invite all your single friends. Make it a friend of a friend party – where everyone brings a friend of the opposite sex that they are not interested in. You may just meet someone in you own living room.

Make Lists to Be Grateful
Make a list of all the ways you’ve been nice. Thank yourself by doing something nice for yourself, like buying that gift! Make another list and write down the names of those who have brought you joy this year. Treat them with a token of appreciation. This can be a simple “thank you” text, card, or a hug. These small gestures will fill you with gratitude regardless of your relationship status.
