Single On Thanksgiving? Good.

Written on November 21, 2014 at 5:08 pm, by

THANKSGIVINGthanksgiving is rapidly approaching and if you feeling uncomfortable about being single on that day you aren’t alone. In fact, over 40% of Americans over the age of 18 are single so there are plenty of people who know how you feel. There are also plenty of people who want to meet someone special but I’ll get to that in a bit. For now, I encourage you to think of Thanksgiving as the time to give thanks and you can start by giving thanks for the fact that you aren’t in a bad relationship.

If you choose to spend Thanksgiving at home you can avoid the headaches of packed airports and traffic jams. You’ll also have fewer obligations, less family drama, and more time to relax and enjoy your time off from work. You can decide to declare the day to be whatever you want it to be.  You can spend it with friends, watch movie marathons, volunteer to help the homeless or however else you want.

If you choose to spend Thanksgiving with family it could be really nice. But at the same time you may worry that a relative may ask you insensitive questions. You know what I’m referring to, the ones who are terrible at small talk and instead ask, “so why are you still single?” If you are in a new relationship they may ask, “when are you getting married?” Chances are they love you and have good intentions but are a little ignorant and crass. Even though you may want to jump out of your skin when they ask, I recommend that you smile and change the subject to one of their favorites. Most people love discussing children, pets or holiday shopping. But, if they continue with the insensitive questions you can turn it around and ask them, “why do you ask?” If they shush after that, great. If they don’t, perhaps it is time for you to check on the stuffing?

Let’s also not forget that the night before Thanksgiving is one of the biggest nights of the year for going out and meeting someone new. Nothing is permanent in life and your relationship status can change in an instant. Mine did.

                My Best Breakup Advice

                Written on September 20, 2014 at 11:18 am, by

                Lately my life has been going very well overall.  But I’ve certainly had my share of challenges, especially when I was single. Dating can be a lot of fun but it can also be difficult at times.  It all worked out for me in the end and I’m now happily married.  But like you I’ve spent years being single and it wasn’t always enjoyable.  As much as I wish I could tell you that every relationship before my husband was wonderful I just can’t because it isn’t the truth.  There were many times when I felt disappointed about how a relationship turned out.

                Let’s face it, as much as we don’t always like it, we have no control over the way other people act.  BUT, I discovered a secret weapon which can help you minimize the pain you feel from a disappointing relationship and protect yourself from having their negativity turn you into a  bitter person.  This secret weapon is 4 little but powerful words which will enable you to continue to move forward on your journey while being your most attractive self. Can I get a drumroll? They are, “I wish you well.”

                So the next time someone you are interested in promises you a date but doesn’t follow through, I encourage you to think to yourself, “I wish you well.”  And mean it.  You never need to actually say these words to them if they don’t deserve your kindness. In fact, you never need to speak to them again if that isn’t a healthy thing to do.  These words are not for them, these words are for you and are all about you being kind to YOU.  These 4 words will protect you from becoming a bitter person who turns off desirable people.  These 4 words will enable you to release the negative interaction and continue to move forward peacefully and happily.  I know these words aren’t always easy but these words directed at your ex will give you peace and enable you to quickly attract someone special who is worthy of you.

                May you be happy and have a love life which is exactly what you want it to be.
