Under the Mistletoe

     The holidays are a great time to spend with family, an awesome break from school, and presents galore! There are always things to be thankful for during this beautiful time of cheer.  However, sometimes it can be a dreary reminder to the single girls out there that they have no one under the mistletoe.  Or a time when girls feel pressured by the special someone under the mistletoe to show extra affection.  If you have never had either of these problems consider yourself lucky! For the rest of us, let’s discuss how best to navigate the tricky holiday-in-relationship (or lack there of) season.

  ALL THE SINGLE LADIES… First of all I know how you feel.  I’ve spent countless christmas’ watching my sister cousins and friends getting sweet gifts from their boyfriends and marveling over their young love.  They never seem to notice that the time that they spend reflecting (to often a loud to you) about how thankful they are for their boyfriend, you feel like you’re missing out on something.  Trust me, it’s not as glorious as it sounds.  Being in a relationship is a great thing, but worth waiting for the person you actually want to be with.  There are so many fish in the sea that it is often times really hard to find the fish that fits you.  But the mistletoe will be there for the rest of your life.  And eventually the guy who wants you and only you to share that with him will come along and add romance to your holiday.  In the meantime spend the holiday fully committing yourself to appreciating you family and friends.  Give them your full attention and you’ll soon be forgetting about what you don’t have.

HOLIDAY ROMANCERS… I’m sure he’s really cute, and I’ll bet he’s sweet to you.  But no matter how great a guy is, your present for him can be thoughtful and romantic without making you go out of your comfort zone.  Any guy who is worth your time should want you to be happy during the holidays and shouldn’t be pressuring you “under the mistletoe.”  So hold your ground.  I know that you want to make him happy and let him know how much he means to you, but gift giving should be healthy and happy for both of you.  Get him something that means a lot to him, however, what happens under the mistletoe is meant to be special for both of you.  So don’t sacrifice your part of the experience because you feel pressured. If he really cares about you he will wait for when you are both ready.
