The Etiquette of Holiday Dating
As the holidays are quickly approaching how are single men and women handling the pressures of dating throughout the holidays? Do breakups still occur due to the expectations of the opposite sex to purchase meaningful, yet expensive gifts?
What about the annual Christmas parties both on a professional and social scale. You’ve been flying solo for the last 10-months and all of a sudden there’s a need to find a date thus, showing up at these functions won’t seem so, well¾ awkward!
The holidays can become a lonely season for many wishing that they were sharing it with that special someone. This is more apparent when visiting family and friends that are either married or coupled up and there you arrive solo with only the food item you offered to bring.
What are your thoughts on trying to hurriedly find a holiday relationship? Does it usually fizz out as soon as you start taking down the holiday décor?
What about those holiday parties. Is it necessary to only show up with a date for pretentious reasons? Who exactly are we trying to impress at these parties anyway!
What are your ethics on a man or woman accompanying someone to a social occasion in other words an escort? Does our society place so much pressure on holiday dating that we can not brave it alone and proudly profess that, “Yes, I am single and it shouldn’t matter that I am not in a relationship, or that I don’t have a date to take to any of those holiday parties.”
‘Tis the season for expressing your thoughts!’ We welcome your comments.
