Firstly, there is nothing wrong with being single on New Year’s Eve. If you’re feeling a bit deflated at the prospect of spending another December 31st alone, it’s time to take a deep breath and look towards the future!

Going into the New Year single can be fun, exciting and full of possibilities. Check out these 6 helpful New Year’s resolutions so next year can be your year!

1. Say "yes" more

It’s time to start saying “yes” more! Start embracing life and saying “yes” to every invite you’re even slightly interested in. Before you know it, you will have met tons of interesting people and will have made a load of new experiences. And who knows where that could lead…

2. Stop comparing yourself to others

Ever heard the phrase “Comparison is the thief of joy”? When we compare ourselves to others, we often don’t know the person’s full story. Even if they have a perfect Instagram, there’s really no way to know what’s going on behind closed doors.

The only person you should compare yourself to is you. Ask yourself how you can be better, happier and more confident than you were this year.

3. Make more single friends

Make a conscious effort to make more single friends this New Year. Instead of feeling like a third wheel all the time, start to feel like a fun-loving human being again! Forming friendships with people who are also single will make you feel less lonely and more understood.

4. Go out alone

Now is the time to get over being uncomfortable going out alone. Take yourself on a date to that coffee shop you’ve always wanted to try, take a long walk, go eat out and or do some shopping. When you’re at peace in your own company, that confidence will radiate out when you meet new people!

5. Join a club

Try out a new club or organization in your neighborhood. If you’re already thinking it isn’t for you, at least give it a go once! There are many fun and incredible things you can learn simply by joining a club. Plus, the extra social interaction could lead to new, exciting connections!

6. Consider a second date

Are you quick to dismiss people after one bad first date? In the New Year, consider a second date more often. On the first date, they might have been super nervous meaning they might not have presented themself in the best light. But on the second date, you might see a more relaxed, true version of them. Give them another shot and be open-minded!
