Being single during the holidays ain’t no sleigh ride. The cuddly couples and all-around Christmas cheer can really put a damper on your single ladies’ festive spirit. Not to worry, you’re not the only one singing “Silent Night” — there are plenty of other independent women going it alone in December. Take a look at all the reasons being single during the holidays can be pretty rough.
1.You must brave office holiday parties alone.
2.Nobody is there to save you from your eggnog addiction.
5.You don’t find mistletoe romantic; it’s an opportunity for strangers to awkwardly kiss you.
6.Your friends try to set you up with guys like this for festive celebrations.
7.Solo plane rides to visit relatives result in less-than-desirable seat mates.
8.The only man’s lap you’ll be sitting on this year is Santa’s.
9.Wrapping yourself in blankets is your makeshift version of spooning.
But when in doubt, your BFFs will always be there to snap you out of your bah humbug mood . . .
