I love Christmas - it’s by far the most romantic time of the year (IMO at least). This morning, I had the chance to sit down with Lane Fraser on CTV Morning Live and discuss the dos and don'ts of dating during the holidays. If you missed it, click here or continue reading!
1) Don’t take a new date to a holiday work function. While tempting, a corporate party is a great time to network with colleagues - not to test run a new love interest
Why not? First, you don’t know your new date well enough to know how they’ll behave in social situations. What if they are exhibitionists after a few glasses of wine? You definitely don’t want to discover that in front of your boss
Secondly, you don’t want to be babysitting someone at a work function. You’re there in a professional capacity first and work parties are ideal for advancing other things than your love life
2) Don’t invite a new date to a family function during the holidays
Why not? First, if you’ve just started dating, you’re likely not ready for that step anyway. Secondly, introducing a special someone to your family can be stressful at the best of times. Holidays are pressure-filled already so waiting might be best
1) Do take advantage of the social scene during this time of year. If you’re single, get out and mingle!
If you’re like me, the invites to social functions have already started arriving. Now is a great time to dress up and get out there - you could meet that special someone
2) Do take advantage of the endless fun holiday date options of the season
My clients know I’m a huge fan of first dates that involve an activity of some kind. That’s because activities help you loosen up, they take the pressure off and allow you to have fun together, which is key to a good time!
During the holidays, there are so many fun things to do whether it’s checking out the Zoo lights or a Christmas Market, skating at Olympic Plaza or heading up to the mountains, there’s a lot to take advantage of.
