Some terrific costumes include full masks or enclosed headpieces. Although they are fun, these types are best suited for couples. You do not want to hide away your face or make it difficult to talk to people.

If you must remove a mask or costume head to eat or drink, this can cause problems when wooing a potential suitor. For example, how can you make flirty eyes at a cutie across the room when they can’t see your face?

Remember, if you need to take off your costume to talk or drink, you will have to carry it around all evening. This task will get old quickly since you need both hands for dancing and charming your date.

2. Pick something that you love

If you enjoy anime, choose an outfit of a favorite character. Think of a movie you love and dress as one of the actors. When attending a Halloween party alone, try dressing up as something you love. It may help attract a partner with similar interests and be a great icebreaker. 

This way, you are sure to find those in the crowd of singles who share similar tastes in movies, music, and hobbies. Think of your costume as a pre-screening activity, if you will, to find someone compatible. Who knows, the right partner may notice you across the room and make the first move based on your outfit.

3. Take it easy on the cauldron juice

While it’s always fun to get out for a good time during Halloween, singles may want to take it easy on the drinks. Meeting new people can be nerve-wracking. But drinking too much could sabotage your chances of really connecting with someone!

This way, you stay hydrated and will be able to have a whole night of fun!

4. Bring candy
