Relationship Advice on How to Survive the Holidays as a Single Person

The Holiday Season can be a stressful time for singles.  There is an air of festivity, but also often an expectation that “loved ones” should include a significant other.   That can create the need to scramble and find someone to be with for the holidays.  However, my relationship advice for single people is to avoid falling into what I call a “convenient relationship”.

Convenient relationships are easy traps for people who don’t want to be alone during the holidays.  However, once the turkey is eaten and the ball has dropped, you’ll often find yourself single once again as these relationships do not last for the long term.  My relationship advice for you is to avoid convenient relationships at all costs: try to enjoy being single instead during the Holidays!  Get out there, take care of yourself, do the things that you enjoy doing and be with the people who truly love you.

If you are an athlete or just someone who enjoys exercise, allow yourself plenty of time to workout during the Holiday months ahead.  If you enjoy being pampered, treat yourself to that spa day you’ve been wanting for a long time.  Also find other singles with whom to celebrate the season, as well as, spending time with friends and family members who make you feel good about yourself.

Therefore, my relationship advice for singles during this time of year is to keep the spirit of the season in mind.  Rather than focusing on what you don’t have or settling for less than what you want and deserve, be appreciative and grateful for what you do have.  If you can hold on to that, the Holidays can be an enjoyable time for you.  And who knows, you may just find that special person this season!

Intentionally yours,
Coach Amy
