Home / Dating Advice / Houston Singles – Top 3 Perks of Being Single for the Holidays

For whatever reason, the holidays are known for being an awful time for singles. But as matchmakers, we know you shouldn’t let your single status get you down. In fact, there are quite a few reasons why being single for the holidays can be beneficial. Sure, you might not have a partner to get a midnight kiss from, or someone to attend holiday parties with, but there are also a few perks of being single for the holidays.

For starters, you can do whatever you want. You don’t have to divide the time between your family and your partner’s. Let’s be honest, going to someone else’s house for the holidays can be a little bit scary. They have their own traditions that you don’t know—meanwhile you’re just trying to remember each of their names. Think about the money you’ll be saving by not buying a partner lavish presents. Hmm, that means you can splurge big on Black Friday! But seriously, there are a few more reasons why being single during the holidays isn’t all that bad.

Below, our Houston dating service has compiled the top three perks of being single for the holidays. So get ready to turn that frown upside and start looking forward to the holidays solo.

1. You don’t have to bring them to your family’s Thanksgiving dinner.

If you’re in a serious relationship, then you’ll be expected to spend the holidays together, which means having to share time between each of your families. If you have a few whacky family members (and don’t we all?), bringing your new partner to meet your drunk Uncle Billy or talkative Aunt Tori can surely be a challenge. Sure, they’ll eventually meet these people, but you won’t feel that stressed during such an already chaotic time.

If you don’t have a partner, then you don’t have to deal with this at all, which is a huge perk, right? You can let your Uncle Billy and Aunt Tori share their lame stories with each other like they’ve done for the past couple of years.

2. You don’t have to go to their Thanksgiving dinner.

Perhaps even better than not having a guest for your Thanksgiving dinner is not having to go to your new partner’s Thanksgiving dinner. Holidays are supposed to be a relaxing time spent with loved ones. But when you attend someone else’s family dinner, relaxation is the last thing you’ll be experiencing. You’ll be trying to remember everyone’s names, trying not to get too drunk despite how nervous you are, trying not to make it completely obvious that you had four servings of turkey, and feeling the need to have to be more alert than you would with your own family.

Being single means you can hang out with your own family, whose names you already know, you can drink as many cocktails as you want, and you can have four servings of turkey and stuffing and no one will ever judge you. That’s a win-win, right?

3. You can splurge on yourself on Black Friday.

If you’re not in a relationship, you don’t have to buy anyone presents. Now, how amazing is that? For now, there’s just one person to shop for, and that is yourself, which means you can splurge on Black Friday.

The good voice inside your head is telling you, “Yes, I can buy my friends and family cool gifts,” while the bad voice is telling you to get something for yourself. We’re not going to tell you which voice you should listen to, but it’s your choice. You can win brownie points with your friends and family by getting them something nice and also treat yourself to a little something you’ve been dying to have. There’s no harm in that, right?

See, we told you that being single during the holidays was a blessing in disguise, so don’t let your single status bring you down this holiday season.

We know that at the end of the day, nothing beats being in a relationship over the holidays. But meeting relationship-minded singles in today’s modern dating scene can be challenging. If you’re tired of meeting people who aren’t serious about dating, contact our Houston Singles matchmakers today and let us introduce you to singles in Houston who are serious about finding love. Maybe it’s time to splurge on a matchmaking membership and give yourself the gift of love!
