It has happened to all of us single people: an invitation to a party shows up in the mail, and we are all excited until we get to the RSVP line asking to specify whether we are taking someone with us or not. And you already know what that means: it means everybody will be having a beau but you.
Now, being single is great at many ages, but people asking nosy questions concerning your singlehood are not as great. Here is how to handle it with class.
Better alone than in bad company
Don’t settle for a random plus one. Either you have a friend who can really become the soul of the party without being the one to hold your hand, or you are your best plus one you can get yourself!
Single and ready to mingle
I am pretty positive you won’t be the only single out there. Aim at those without a plus one and make new friends.
Don’t allow the spleen to set in, not even for a second! Seeing couples everywhere might be hard to handle in the case you’re getting out of a bad breakup, but, if this is the case, make it your mission to enjoy your time as much as you can (and you can!).
Haters gonna hate
There will always be that someone that thinks being single and boyfriendless at a party makes you lame. But guess what: they’re wrong. The ultimate weapon is to take it with a smile and shrug it off.
