There is nothing worse than being single at the holidays. At least, that’s how it feels. From the probing questions of relatives, radiant happiness of passing couples on the street, and the gushiness of chick flicks set at Christmastime, singletons everywhere are bombarded with the togetherness of the season that seems to be lacking from their lives. It’s time to buck-up and battle those Blue Christmas blahs with some tips to restore your festive fabulousness.

First of all, don’t mope! You are not the only singleton flying solo this season. Remember the law of attraction: like attracts like. People who radiate confidence and positivity are attractive, so get out there and be fabulous!

Secondly, treat yourself! Ditch the Sad-Sally Sweats, dress up, and take yourself out on a date. Treat yourself to some time at the spa, fly solo to the movies to see the most recent holiday comedy, or gift yourself some nice perfume.

Third, strategically direct the conversation. If your Uncle Geoffery asks about your love life, change the subject. You are not required to disclose your personal life to anyone, not even your mother or nosy family member. Talk about your promotion at work instead!

Give back! Volunteer at a food bank or soup kitchen. Not only does it significantly boost your mood, but it helps to shift your frame of mind regarding the holidays.

Finally, surround yourself with the similarly single. Don’t hit that holiday party solo, grab a single friend to go with! Two are better than one, and who knows… maybe you’ll both find someone under the mistletoe!!
