10 Tips for Singles to Survive the Holidays and Make Them Great!
62 Percent of Single Professionals Think More About Dating in December and
January Than Any Other Time of the Year ...
SAN DIEGO, Dec. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- A recent poll by It's Just Lunch, a national specialty dating service for busy professionals that maximizes the efficiency of dating by coordinating clients for lunch dates or a drink after work, found that 73 percent of single professionals said they were asked by colleagues, friends and family members about their dating life more during the holidays then any other time of year! With over 11 years in the dating industry and having observed the patterns of singles during the holidays, Lisa Purdum, Director of It's Just Lunch in San Diego, offers 10 tips to survive the holidays as a single. 1. Go to every holiday party you're invited to ... you never know who you'll meet! 2. Make up a fabulous story about your new exotic significant other to ward off overly inquisitive (nosy!) relatives. 3. Call old friends and catch up with them. You never know who they could introduce you to for a last minute holiday date. 4. Buy yourself a special present -- anything from a diamond to a puppy. 5. Be festive and decorate for the holiday season by using candles, mistletoe and twinkle lights -- whatever your religion, indulge in the tradition, it feels good and you never know who might drop by! 6. Check airline Web sites for reduced airfares and holiday specials and take a spontaneous weekend getaway to somewhere you've always wanted to go -- think big ... New Orleans, Las Vegas, New York City, San Francisco ... or even Paris! 7. Send holiday greeting cards or letters to all your family and friends (including those whom are "long-lost") and then enjoy receiving the responses. 8. Treat yourself to a day of pampering at your favorite spa or salon -- don't forget to book the massage! 9. Fill your home with the sounds of the season -- buy the holiday classics like Nat King Cole or Elvis CDs, or organize friends for caroling or karaoke. 10. Stay cheery during the holiday season. The beginning of a New Year means an opportunity for a fresh start! Founded in 1991 by Andrea McGinty and run by Daniel Dolan, Chairman and CEO, It's Just Lunch moved their headquarters to San Diego from Chicago 18 months ago and recently celebrated 11 years in the dating industry with 50 offices open nationwide.
