Picture this. It’s December. Holiday ads everywhere, engagements popping up on social, onesie coordinated couple pics, texts from old friends and fam asking how you are and specifically asking if you’re dating anyone. Even though you’re happy with your life and doing your best to date, you still can’t help but feel…alone. Oh wait. No need to picture it. It’s happening. Only your single status has gone from “SO single” to “SO single without ANY IDEA how to mingle” given our current pandemic life.
Don’t worry my friends, inner boosters, or if you’re new, hi! You’re in the right place. By the time you get to the end of this blog you’ll have some mindset hacks, dating tips and even know how to handle the awkward pandemic kiss situation in a way that can actually be quite fun and respectful of differing views, with an easy way to move on from any awkward moments.
I’m a coach, author, strategist and human who has been through the same highs and lows of modern dating and have adapted some of the strategies from my book “From Swipe to Bae” as well as the top-secret guys version, to help anyone who would like to, date and grow a connection authentically, even in the pandemic.
Holidating (dating during the holiday season) can be both exciting and challenging. Exciting as you ride the wave of joy, giving, love and revel in the boost of hope as you meet new people during this season, it’s fun and gives you that extra spring in your step. The challenging side can be pretty tough, not only because of the added pressure around, if you’ve actually met someone you like, you naturally want to see more of them and schedules can be busy making it hard to see each other again. The added complexity of holiday dating will trigger any human to take any form of rejection, delayed dates or singledom vibes to next level low feels. Low vibes. Sadness!
Let’s say bye to that now. Get your tea, put on a festive song in the background and read on to go from “SO single” to “SO mingle”, pandemic or not!
And as it’s the season of giving, I’m giving both guys and gals free first date success guide downloads at the end. x
