Alright, listen up. I know it can be tough and slightly boring to be single during the holidays. It’s the season to be boo’d up and cuddled somewhere by a fire. It’s normal to want to spend cold nights with a warm body next to you! That’s no excuse to go on a heat seeking mission of finding some random person whose only appeal is body heat and a pulse.
I’m not saying not to date during the holidays. In fact, it’s the ideal time to go out: go to holiday parties, maximize those days off, ask someone out who sparks a real interest. But please, for the love of Baby Jesus, don’t get caught up in a fake relationship.
If you feel that you are getting fast tracked into meeting family members, exchanging pricey gifts, or accompanying someone you just met to the office party – keep in mind this may be temporary.
There are some people who want to avoid feeling lonely so they end up using people to fill a void. Try to keep things light and fun and if you aren’t sure about starting a real relationship with someone – don’t do it and let the person know.
As much as we may want to be coupled up, being single during the holidays can be fun too!
What fun things do you have planned for the next couple of weeks?
Have you ever been a victim of fake relationships started just for the holidays?
