The winter months can be an especially rough time for dating, because it’s just so darn cold that no one feels the urge to go out and socialize.
No need to be depressed! Here are a few ideas on how to survive those dark, cold winter months:
1. Get used to the idea of having to sacrifice your impeccable style for much needed comfort. Having to- bundle up during those long dreaded winter months doesn’t necessarily mean you can’t be at ease with what you’re wearing. So strutt your stuff and make an entrance!
2. Invest in a comfortable yet stylish winter coat. I think we all agree that a poofy goose down parka isn’t the most flattering item to wear but still there are lots of models that are quite feminine and cute. Choose a belted coat or a fur trimmed parka and combine with a pair of high heeled leather boots.
3. Participate in a fun singles-only activity. Why not get with the underground dining scene and have dinner with complete strangers at a “guestaurant” near you? Have a great night out meeting a bunch of new people in an intimate dinner setting. You won’t believe the amazing conversations you’ll have.
4. Date night? A wintery activity should put you just in the right kind of mood. Take your date to a Christkindlmarket and enjoy the festive mood while sipping on some egg nog or some mulled cider. Take a romantic stroll through your favorite park and stop by a cozy little cafe for some hot cocoa. Go ice skating at night and soak in the atmosphere. You might find it easier to bond with someone over physical activities. Also you have an excuse to snuggle up when the temperatures go below freezing.
