The holidays can be a lonely time for someone who is new at being single. That is because after being in a relationship for many years where the two of you always made the holiday about yourselves you may find it depressing to be alone celebrating the holidays. Though this may sound sad it does not have to be if you surround yourself with enough friends and family that will keep your mind off of the fact that you are now flying solo for a while. In fact after a while you may find that the holiday time of being single will inspire you to be happy and single and possibly begin dating with a positive outlook on a new mate. After all that is most likely what your ex is doing during the holidays as well. So instead of being depressed during the holidays make it a point to go out with as many people that you can fit into your schedule and just have fun. By doing this the time will go by quickly and it will keep your mind off the fact that you are single. It will also keep you busy celebrating and meeting with the possibility of meeting new people.
