5 Tips To Find A Boyfriend Or Girlfriend During Christmas Time

Love seems to be in the air during Christmas time. Between the cheesy Christmas movies and the family members you visit once a year asking you about your love life, Christmas time does not seem to be the best time to be single. It only seems natural that one might want to find their special someone during the holiday season. As Howard Wolowitz from The Big Bang Theory said “Love is not a sprint, it’s a marathon, a relentless pursuit that only ends when she falls into your arms – or hits you with the pepper spray”. As you clicked on this article, you seem to be part of this endless marathon so here are our 5 tips for you not to end pepper sprayed.

TIP 1: CHRISTMAS SWEATERS YOU MUST AVOID!

According to Ned Stark “Winter is coming”. Wearing such sweaters seems such a great way to stay warm. Yes, they are comfortable! Yes, they are funny to wear! Yes they are, as Agnes from “Despicable me” would say “SO FLUFFY”!! But Hell no! They are not sexy! Even if it’s Christmas time, this is not an excuse to loosen up. In order to find your soul mate, you have to make some efforts to stay attractive. Meaning you should stay away from these ugly Christmas jumpers. They never made someone appealing. Do not forget Bridget Jones’s reaction when seeing Mark for the first time “Oh ding dong! Maybe this time mom had got it right! Maybe this was the mysterious Mr. right” (sees the Christmas jumper)… “Maybe not”.

TIP 2: SUCK AT ICE-SKATING BECAUSE WEAKNESSES ARE CUTE

One of the most romantic and most crowded places during Christmas time is the skating ring. Wouldn’t it be worth and wonderful to go for a stroll? Since we are not here to skate but to find THE one, you have to adopt a unique strategy to create contact. After all, as Stephen Kaggwa said “Try and fail, but don’t fail to try”. “When you want something you’ve never had, you have to do something you’ve never done” The crazy idea would be to be the damsel in distress on your ice stakes! Whether you are good at ice skating or not, pretend being a bad ice-skater. The advice would be to fall several times to make it more believable.

Seeing you struggling, there will inevitably be some kind soul to rescue you and hold your hand in this difficult moment of your life. In the scenario where no one helps you, just fall on the cutest guy or girl on ice-skates. In order to keep some kind of dignity, why not use Megara’s quote from Hercules’s Disney “I’m a damsel in distress, I can handle this, have a good day” or Joey’s famour “How you doing?”. Once you established contact, you simply need to start a conversation based on the situation, ice-skating or whatever subject you feel comfortable with. At the end of this story, best case scenario you could end up singing together, as Dean Martin did with Baby it’s Cold Outside, « I’ll hold your hands they’re just like ice ».

Worst case scenario: you find yourself transported to the nurse’s office after the multiple pretend falls which turned out got a little too realistic. Stuck with the nurse… Um, wait. What if THIS was the best case scenario? Hello nurse!!

TIP 3: MAKE MISTLETOE YOUR BEST FRIEND!

According to Jim Halpert from The Office, “Christmas is the time to tell people how you feel”. Are you one of those people having trouble confessing your love? Do not worry, you are not alone, Mark and Sarah in Love Actually also struggled to own up to their feelings. Nevertheless you can still confess without words. All we need is one kiss to create a connection! What better opportunity to kiss people during Christmas time than under mistletoe? Unfortunately, what are the chances to be right under the mistletoe branch with the exact person you want? Pretty low! However, nothing keeps you from balancing the odds in your favor. After all, isn’t Mistletoe an old tradition? No one would want to break traditions!

Either it’s a good kiss and everything works out perfectly and you live happily ever after, or it’s just embarrassing because the zsa zsa zsu was missing. Carry Bradshaw from Sex and the City was very clear about this subject “How do you sustain a relationship without the zsa zsa zsu? That butterflies in your stomach thing that happens when you not only love the person but you got to have them”.

In that case, you can always blame alcohol and Christmas traditions and move on!! One last point before passing to another tip and we cannot stress this enough! Be careful if you’re planning to use this trick at your work place!!!

TIP 4: BRING YOUR CHRISTMAS SPIRIT TO NEW PLACES

Ted Mosby said “We gotta wait for the real thing, no matter how tough it gets”. We say, why just wait around for it to happen? Whether you are searching for “Real love, Ridiculous, inconvenient, consuming, can’t-live-without-each-other love” as Carry Bradshaw is in Sex in the City or just do not wish to be alone for Christmas, you need to understand that love will not always magically appear to you like a fairy tale. As people often say “Life is not a fairy tale, if you lose a shoe at midnight, you’re drunk”.

So just make it happen! For example, why not go to Christmas cooking lessons? After all, Christmas is always the worst time for bad cooks. What if you end up getting the same toast as Bridget Jones at the end of your meal? “To Bridget who cannot cook, but who we love just as she is”. I guess it could be worst, after all love is about loving the others imperfection as the dating website Match says so well. So just put yourself out there! Go to dancing, cooking, painting lessons and make a fool of yourself if you must but meet new people in the process.

TIP 5: MAKE BAD DECISIONS AT THE CHRISTMAS MARKET

Nothing comes close to the Christmas market in terms of romance with the delicious smell of mulled wine, the cold winter air, the laughter around you and the scrumptious products available at every corner. You must be wondering where exactly the opportunity for single people lie? Well, why not bring a friend and stay at the wine bar? As Frank Sinatra said “Alcohol may be man’s worst enemy, but the bible says love your enemy”. Getting drunk is often associated with making bad decisions.

However, we say bad decisions make great stories! So why not have one or two drinks? It might help you to ease up and you might get to know people around you. Just make sure not to bring to many friends or you might not talk to anyone new. Bring a wing man and you can also try to use Barney’s Stinson method of “Have you meet Ted?”

Furthermore, it goes without saying but make an effort not to scare people of as could Ernest Hemingway by saying “If my Valentine you won’t be I’ll hang myself on your Christmas tree”.

To finish, Lily Aldrin from How I met your mother said “That’s life, you know, we never end up where you thought you wanted to be”. However, in the end, you will find your perfect someone, so just keep believing and for now enjoy your Christmas! Sheldon from the Big Bang Theory said “People say you can’t live without love… I think oxygen is more important”! Do not forget he found someone in the end. Do not forget, there are “Plentyoffish” in the sea.
