That time is finally here.
If you’re prevalent in the dating game right now, kudos to you. I’m a firm believer that the right one is out there for all of us, you just have to be present enough for them to find you. There is a certain etiquette you should use when dating during the holidays and I’ll do my best to dive into each one of them. Dating during the holidays is risky–I’ll admit that–but isn’t finding love worth the risk? If you’ve been in the dating world lately, hopefully, you’ve found yourself a person that you’re genuinely interested in because this is the time that you will surely find out whether or not they are genuinely interested in you. We know that not everyone wants to be tied down. We know that some people have difficulty picking up on vibes or reading between the lines. Let’s acknowledge those facts, then put them aside while focusing on the positive, shall we? There are still people out there who want to build a lasting relationship. It’s true, they really do exist. Those are the people you date during the holiday season.
“What are we?”
When you know how the relationship is progressing and where it’s headed you can avoid wasting time on yet another failed relationship. If they “aren’t ready for a relationship right now” and you are–move on. If they “don’t want anything serious right now”–move on. If they don’t see themselves with you specifically–fret not and move on. As long as they’re honest in their answer, I don’t think anyone should be upset about the outcome. That is why it’s so important to ask the question when the time is right. Keep in mind that you two may not be the right fit and it takes two to have the real thing, which is what you deserve! Don’t give up if they tell you they’re not wanting a relationship. There are plenty of fish in the sea. Look on the bright side–you won’t have to find out that you’re just their ‘friend’ when they introduce you to the family or be added to the list of “guests” who met the family during the holidays but disappeared shortly afterward. You won’t have to waste any time or money on the perfect gift. And now you’re free to get back out there and keep looking for the one you want.
Here’s to taking the risk.
