Single for the Holidays: Deck the Halls and Yourself Too!

Are you single for the holidays this year?

are you single for the holidaysThe holidays are approaching and you find yourself single for the holidays. As your love and dating coach, I’m going to say this situation offers excellent opportunities to mingle and meet men.

However, so much depends on your enthusiasm for the season. For example, do you like to deck the halls with greenery, lights, trees, Santa, and more? Getting into the spirit uplifts your attitude and creates a higher vibe. This can help you enjoy the holidays more, and make you more attractive to quality men!

Holiday Attire

It’s time to take this “Deck the Halls” idea a step further. Do you deck yourself out with your holiday attire? Think about it –  why stop with your home décor when you can take your decorating joy into your personal appearance?

What you choose to wear during the holidays makes an impression. What do you want to present to the world? How you dress does convey a bit about you and your holiday spirit.

Don’t worry – you don’t need to wear a crazy holiday sweater or snowman earrings. What I’m talking about could be subtle or boldly stylish. The choices is yours.

If you’re single for the holidays, here are five options to deck yourself out, show off your holiday spirit, and spread more holiday cheer.

1. Wear Red Clothing

Oh yeah. Red is not only a traditional holiday color, its a powerful color with a message of passion. Put on something red and enjoy the magnetic pull that emerges.

You will certainly get noticed because men are automatically attracted to women who wear red. Isn’t that what you want when you’re single for the holidays? You need for men to notice and then walk over to talk with you.

The same benefits apply to any red accents you wear. Think about makeup. Red lipstick and nail polish continue to have sex appeal that has been around since these products were developed.

This could also be true for red jewelry, belts and even shoes. If you’re single for the holidays, you want to do something to stand out from other women in an alluring and positive way.

3. Wear More Makeup

If you are the type of woman who doesn’t have time for makeup – MAKE TIME! You may not like this, but it’s a fact – especially for women over 40. To look like a woman who takes care of herself, you have to apply a little makeup.

I often talk to my love and dating coaching clients about the “Magic 3” which means, mascara, blush, and lipstick.

Over 40 skin does lose some of its youthful glow and the color added with a little makeup goes a long way to keep you looking youthful and vibrant.

4. Dress Up

If you tend to be a casual dresser, change things up and go for it with your holiday wardrobe. Wear a skirt or dress. Choose a blouse with ruffles and sparkle. Or put on some sexy heels.

Whatever you choose, go for what makes you FEEL fabulous. Being single for the holidays, the better you feel, the better you look! When you feel good about how you look, that comes through as confidence.

If you haven’t changed your hairstyle in a long time – do it during the holidays. With men, longer is better. So, if you have any desire to grow out that short hair cut, know that more men might notice longer locks.

You may want to cover the gray with  permanent or semi-permanent color to look and feel younger!

In addition, if you have dark hair, lightening with highlights also makes you look younger.

When you are single for the holidays, any effort to boost your spirits and confidence will go a long way to help you meet men, find love, and just plain enjoy yourself.
