5 Reasons it’s Lame to Be Single During the Holidays

Ah, it’s that time again. Holiday time! And this time of year definitely gets me thinking. Most of the time, I love being single. It’s the best! But holidays are not a great time to be by your lonesome. Here’s why.

1. Going to awkward work parties by yourself.

Standing in the corner and being by yourself can sometimes feel lame, and that’s for sure. You get a lot of questions and sympathy looks from your married co-workers.

2. All the questions you get from your family.

“Why don’t you have a girlfriend?” “Can’t I set you up with somebody?” “When are you gonna get married?” HEY GUYS. SHUT UP.

3. You can’t go ice skating.

Going ice skating is pretty much only acceptable if you a. play hockey b. are a figure skater c. have a girlfriend or boyfriend to hold hands with.

4. I don’t know how to bake by myself.

Trying to bake holiday cookies or treats is pretty much a waste of time if it’s just me.

5. I hate watching romantic holiday movies by myself!

There are so many great and cheesy romantic holiday movies, but they make you feel like crap if you’re single.

So to all my single brothers and sisters out there, I hope you all manage to get through the holidays! Stay strong!
