Holiday Dating Tips - Make the Most of Mistletoe!

Some people might think it's a drag to be single during the holidays - but really, it's quite an opportunity. The season is crammed with social events, so why not take advantage of all that holiday cheer?

1) Attend all Parties to which You Are Invited

You never know who you will meet or who these new friends might know for fix ups. The wider your social circle, the more chance for blind date prospects -so no excuses - just go!

2) Wear a Smile

When you smile at people, you make them feel good by acknowledging their very existence. Who couldn't use a bit more acknowledgement? It's easy to shut down, turn your head, and look away. But believe me, you'll get a lot farther with a simple smile. From a non-verbal perspective - you communicate that you are a friendly type of person who won't bite someone's head off if they decide to take the chance to talk to you. And that's a very good thing.

3) Look Your Best

OK, everything is on sale. If you don't have the proper holiday attire - go buy something new! When you look fabulous - that messages comes through loud and clear non-verbally. How you feel about yourself determines 80% of your attractiveness. Choose party clothes that make you look fantastic. It's not about super dressy or the right designer. Instead, it's about fit, color, style, and yes, grooming. Look good, feel good, be magnetic - that's what I always say.

4) Be Warm and Friendly

When you go out, please be warm and friendly. That means no leaning against the wall with your arms folded. No hiding in the kitchen either. Go ahead - stand front and center with the crowd, so you actually have a chance to meet new people. Isn't that the whole point of going out? If you aren't having fun, pretend you are because happy, friendly people are very attractive. And then things might turn around, right?

5) Keep Expectations Realistic

Be realistic with your expectations of any event you attend. You might meet some great new people, or not. But that doesn't keep you from having a good time and making the most of what is available. Attitude can make the difference between a fun evening and a miserable memory and surprisingly, this is a choice you can make. If the party attendance isn't what you expected, enjoy the people who are there. Once again, you just never know who might be the connection to the partner of your dreams.

Leverage holiday festivities for all they are worth. At the very least, you'll have fun and the upside might be the chance to take advantage of that silly mistletoe.
