Ringing in the New Year as a single is not as dreadful as one would imagine it to be. Here are four wonderful reasons to bring in the New Year especially if you are not in a relationship.
1 To celebrate or not to celebrate: The decision on how to ring in the New Year lies completely up to you. Unlike couples, there sometimes tends to be a clash of choice between one who wants to go out and usher in the New Year with their friends, while the other wants to stay at home. But if you are not in a relationship, the choice to hit the dance floor, or hang out in your PJs watching the latest movie on your computer with a bowlful of popcorn and wasabi peas boils down to you and you alone.
2 Singles-only bash (with a twist): Throw a singles-only with a plus one invite. The twist here is to bring a friend who is of the opposite sex. The idea here is to meet new people besides old faces, and have a good time, and bring in the 2015 on a high. And, who knows, you just might hit it off with someone new at the party as soon as you step foot into the New Year.
3 La Familia: If you prefer some down-time, and haven't seen your family in a while, ushering in the New Year is the perfect way to spend some quality time together, and tuck into some delicious homemade food that you've been craving for a while now.
4Travel: What better way to bring in the New Year with some swag. Pack your bags and head out with your single friends to the beach, mountains or the countryside, and bring in the New Year in style. Or opt to do it in solitude. Whatever makes you happy when ushering in the New Year. Click here to visit these single-friendly cities here or international shores.
