Between all the dinners, parties, gift exchanges and other events, the holidays can sometimes suck for single people. So if you've been feeling like a loser lately, we've got five tips on how to survive the rest of the month.
#1.) Don't Mope. It's easy to get down on yourself when you're single around the holidays, but being a sad sack isn't going to get you anywhere. People who are positive and confident are attractive, so even if you're feeling down, try to fake it.
#2.) Treat Yourself. Buy yourself an early Christmas present . . . like new cologne or a pair of high heels . . . and wear it to a holiday party to feel more confident. It'll make you more likely to flirt, and who knows what'll happen.
#3.) Change the Subject. If your mom's giving you a hard time for spending yet ANOTHER holiday alone, shift the focus to something positive, like a promotion you got at work.
#4.) Volunteer. Volunteer at a soup kitchen or a homeless shelter. You'll feel good about helping others, and it'll help put the holidays in perspective.
#5.) Hang Out with Other Single People. Holiday parties are a drag when you don't have a date. So instead of hitting one up solo, get your single friends together and go out to dinner or hit the bars.
