11 Reasons Why Being Single At Christmas is Awesome

Christmas is a notoriously romantic time of year. A great opportunity to cosy up with someone special in front of a roaring fire and what’s not to love about Christmas Day with someone other than your parents.

However, appealing as relationships at Christmas are, there is a lot to be said for being single during the festive period.

From utilising that mistletoe to saying b***locks to it all and spending the 25th on a beach somewhere hot with nothing but a Pina Colada and good book to keep you company.

1. Christmas parties

Weddings, funerals, Christmas parties – occasions which often involve free alcohol, high emotions and amorous strangers.

A couple of spritzers and home by ten because your boyfriend’s complaining about how much you’ve been out lately – or a boozefest with three hundred colleagues you’ve never met before, a karaoke machine and the fit bloke from the Basingstoke office trying to snog you in the line up for the buffet.

Hashtag no brainer.

2. Fit co-workers

Talking of which, there is nothing like the festive season to bring the office hotties out of the woodwork.

3. Snogging randoms

Mistletoe – what’s not to love about the fail-safe snog-stick for randy office workers everywhere.

What the word ‘cringe’ was invented for.

4. Staying in

Don’t fancy another night in a reserved area of All Bar One – it’s cold, it’s dark, you’re single, you’re drinking red wine in your pyjamas and watching The Holiday on loop.

No judgment here.

5. Letting it all hang out

Because all self-respecting people start eating three and a half thousand calories a day on the first of December.

Looking sexy naked by the 25th? No thanks, love.

6. Saving money

Because *all* your boyfriend wants this year is a set of new golf clubs.

*Weeps*

7. Not being one half of an annoying couple

Good tidings and best wishes in M&S glittery Christmas cards from *insert your name* and *insert your boyfriend’s name* here.

Or

A Whatsapp group message sent on Boxing Day titled ‘thank f**k that’s over’

One of the above is not annoying.

8. Doing what the hell you want on Christmas Day

Vodka cocktails at 11am, a Chinese takeaway at 4pm, the walk of shame along Clapham high street from a bloke’s house you’ve never met before who you pulled on Christmas Eve – knock yourself out my single friend.

9. Bickering

Nothing kills the festive mood like a significant other gently reminding you that a bottle of port and two cherry brandy chasers might be a bit much before 11am.

Whatever, It’s Christmas!

10. Navel-gazing

Totally ignoring each other indefinitely or long walks for deep and meaningfuls about where your relationship is going — welcome to Boxing Day for couples.

Single folk? Did someone say Quality Street, Prosecco in pyjamas and Singin’ In The Rain?

*Resumes the position*

11. The New Year

Also known as the most popular month for new sign ups on dating apps.

Meaning that, after your relaxing break spent eating, drinking, snogging fit blokes and *not* over-analysing you can log back in on Tinder and find a whole new crop of newly single hotties.

*Happy* New Year.
