Six Tips From The Internet To Help Single People Make It Through The Holidays

The holidays are here, and you’re single yet again.  Everywhere you look there’s irritating holiday cheer.  Your friends send you their annoying family holiday card, you wonder if human resources is judging your RSVP of one to the office holiday party, and the pressure of the New Year’s Eve midnight kiss makes you want to stay home alone and drink yourself into a stupor.

To bring cheer into the homes of single people everywhere, here are some tips and tricks that should make the holiday season bearable, put a smile on your face,  and bring some joy to your world.

1) Don’t forget to work out.

This time of year can be dangerous with the delicious macaroni and cheese mom makes, so remember to get at least 60 minutes of exercise a day.


You’ll thank me later.

2) Be grateful.

Enjoy the perks of being single with no kids.


Instead spend the money on something frivolous for yourself!

3) Invite a “special” friend home for the holidays.

Remember the holiday season is about giving, so give your family an experience they’ll never forget.


See what I did there?…This will take care of the family members that constantly ask if you’re dating someone special.

4) Get creative!

Suburban moms aren’t the only ones that can make holiday gift wrapping an actual hobby.


No kids to torture? That’s what pets are for.

5) Remember your family loves you just the way you are.

So don’t be afraid to be yourself!


What a cutie-pie!

6) Embrace the joy of spending the holiday season with loved ones.

We’re all in it together, whether we like it or not!

I am a thirty-something geologist that is embarking on the scariest adventure to-date: I am trying to have healthy adult relationships. Let me give you a brief history. I went away to college at 16 years old, and have not lived in the same state as my family since then...until now. I have lived different places every four to five years. I've recently moved to Florida to be close to my family and make a career change. I plan on this being the last move. Let me tell you a little about me. I am biracial and the first of my family to finish college. I have daddy issues. I have a congenital heart defect. I am committed to making a positive impact on the world, but realize I have to do that for myself first. I am confused, and 100% certain about it. This is my "Captain's Log" as I cruise through this uncharted territory. Hopefully, we can enjoy the ride together and have some laughs.
