5 Tips for a Perfect New Year’s Eve for Singles
New Year’s Eve usually means parties and having fun with your “special someone,” but what about singles and those without dates this year? Before you decide that you’re staying home in your pajamas and allowing yourself to be depressed all evening, consider five quick but important tips for having an enjoyable New Year’s Eve even without a date.
You can’t be the only single person in your life, so rally the troops. This means your girlfriends or your guy friends; if you know a single person of the opposite sex with whom you’re comfortable, make plans to have a fun evening out as friends.
Make it Special
Choose a nice restaurant or venue that is hosting a party specifically for singles. Dress up, even if you’re on your own. This will make you feel good about yourself and enjoy the evening all the more.
Be Determined to Enjoy Yourself
Don’t dwell on being single but think about what you do have, and remind yourself that anything can happen tomorrow.
Host a Party
Host a party for your friends at home, if going out is too difficult for you. Make this special as well; decorate your home as festively as possible, encourage everyone to dress up, and play some upbeat music.
New Year’s Eve Alone
If you must stay home by yourself on New Year’s Eve, make that special as well. Choose something you’ll love to make the evening enjoyable, such as your favorite book or movie. Toast the new year at midnight. Refuse to dwell on being alone and make a list of the good things in your life, and a plan of how you’ll improve your life in the upcoming year.
