Being single around the holidays can always be a little bit tense. Either you are alone (and sometimes, but not always, feeling lonely), or you have prospects but don’t want to push your relationship too far by insisting on being together over a holiday.
Watch the Parade
Make a date to cuddle up on the couch and watch the Thanksgiving day parade. There is lot of nostalgia with this parade which will prompt conversation topics and easy ways to get to know each other. Besides that, watching a couple hours of Broadway tunes, TV stars, and giant cartoon balloons is just too much fun to miss.
While volunteering at a rescue mission or food pantry might seem like a downer, it can actually help bond two people together fairly quickly. The key is make your outing about an hour, and no more. Under normal circumstances you should spend as much time as you can at a volunteer site, but when you are with a date it’s best to keep it on the short side. You’ll still get the benefit and honor of helping people, while also showing off your very best side to your date. Nothing makes you fall in love faster than seeing a date give of his heart freely.
As a die-hard Packer fan, I’d be remiss if I did not mention sports. The traditional Thanksgiving game usually features the Packers and Lions, and for football fans this a welcome tradition. If you’re both into football, why not make it a game-watching date? At half-time, go outside and toss a football around, too. This will get your blood pumping (never a bad thing on a date.)
Make Dinner Together
If you both find yourselves without family on Thanksgiving, why not make a meal for two? Instead of a heavy dinner, think smaller appetizer sizes instead. Cooking together can be a very good way to talk and get to know one another. If you’re a whiz in the kitchen, what better way to impress your date?
I’m here to tell you to relax, Singletons of the world! Dating around the holidays can be very fun and won’t put undue pressure on your relationship. For Thanksgiving, do what feels right for you and your partner.
