During the holiday season many single people feel left out or lonely, because a lot of people are paired up and passing around that annoying mistletoe. Even though having someone special for the holidays can be delightful experience some people do not realize that some couples specifically stay together for the holidays, just so they will not go through the drama of a break up and explaining to their family and friends about why their currently single. Being single during the holidays can be a blessing in disguise and here are 5 ways to enjoy that new found independence.
1. Singles Only
You are not the only single person in Los Angeles, so call up a bunch of your old friends and even some new ones and go enjoy a holiday cocktail at your local happy hour establishment. Some excellent happy hour restaurants are The Sheraton Hotel in downtown Los Angeles, The Glendon Bar & Kitchen in Los Angeles, and any El Torito’s restaurant.
2. Lights, Camera, Action!
A lot of awesome movies come out during the holiday season. Stay clear away from the sappy love story movies, because these may cause you to go into a depressing about being single. Go see an action flick or a funny comedy. These types of movies will help to build your morale for the season.
3. Game Night
Plan a game night with all your friends and family. Serve some simple appetizers with a couple of bottles of wine. To make the occasion more festive play some holiday themed music in the background. Once the games starts you will be having so much fun that you will be glad you don’t have someone to impress at the social.
4. Shop Till You Drop
Shopping during the Christmas season can be so much fun, especially if you’re shopping for yourself. When you go shopping for Christmas gifts don’t just think about other people, think about what special gift will put a smile on your face. Since it’s the Christmas season you can find some great deals on clothes, fragrances and electronics.
5. Dancing Machine
Don’t just seat at home and mope around the house in your pajamas. Go out to a club and/or Christmas party and show everyone what great dance moves you have. Dancing not only keeps your body fit, but it also releases stress. So put on that new outfit you just bought and go burn up the dance floor, and you never know you might meet that special someone.
