Brace yourself singles! The forecast calls for a cold winter, which translates into the cold AND dry season for some of us on the dating scene. Dating dry spells are prevalent this time of year as our prospects dry up. If spring didn’t bring you a fling, and fall hasn’t delivered your dream guy or girl, then the next couple of months can be REALLY cold.
When you add in the ever so lovely Seasonal Affective Disorder (yes, it’s literally **SAD!**), you can find yourself in a seriously funky mood that’s hard to shake, making your dry spell last even longer. Nobody wants to date a buzzkill, no matter how hot you are!
So what is a single to do? Well you may have to get a bit creative. My friend Jamie has decided to entertain in her home more. She will send out evites to friends, associates, and old flames to gather at her home for different activities: game night, chilli get togethers, or sports nights. They are encouraged to bring a pal so that the male-female ratio is ideal. These social gatherings could produce new potential dates or at the very least, a new target for her flirting. I am looking forward to attending too!
Have you ever experienced a dating dry spell? What is the longest dry spell you have endured? How did you snap out of it? What causes us to get in these dating ruts?
I think a lot of bad dating choices are partly due to single people trying to get out of their dry spell. Taking applications for a maintenance man or arranging a “friends with benefits” may not always do the trick, either. Have you made any bad moves in an effort to end your dry spell?
If you could create a survival guide for those who are unhappily in a dating dry spell, what tips would you have?
