Dating and the Holidays – Where’s Your Focus?
As holiday events loom, often singles find themselves
wishing they had a special someone to share the season. Some want to climb
under the covers and wait for the post-Valentine’s Day thaw to avoid all the
reminders of your loneliness. Others may attempt desperately grasp at any mate, just
so they can get a New Year’s kiss. When you want something it can be very
difficult to focus on anything else than your heart’s desire.
You may not have a choice as to when Mr. or Ms. Right shows
up in your life, but you do have the opportunity to change your focus. You can
punish yourself and increase your misery by focusing on how lonely you are
through the holidays or choose to find activities other than dating to make you
happy. The more you can distract yourself from the storyline that makes you
sad, the easier it will be to keep your chin up. If you go into a holiday event
with a smile, you will feel better and increase your chances of meeting someone
