A Single Mingle Holiday Survival Guide

If you’ve reached a certain age, it’s safe to say that you’re trying to be a real, human adult. You’re acutely aware that this is a process with its share of fun surprises and new, shall we say, provoking questions. What they don’t tell you about this era is that the surprises are usually barely making it through a day without spilling coffee on yourself. The inquisitive questions, however, tend to come from other people — mostly relatives asking why you don’t have a boyfriend/girlfriend/significant other. During the holiday season these questions become unavoidable, so we’ve written a dance inspired guide to survive the single holiday mingle.
  
The Avoiding Aunt Mildred Marriage Questions Mambo: This one has a long title, but it’s an easy maneuver. When your dear, sweet aunt first mentions that you should be thinking about marriage, simply burst into an enthusiastic, five minute filibuster all about a spicy marinara you made, by marrying an aromatic blend of diced tomatoes, chili peppers, and mushrooms. This will cue her to forget her original question and start sharing recipes. Yum!

The Cool Cousin Swerve: Your cousins are undoubtedly the coolest people — besides you — at this family function. While you’re catching up over a perfectly crisp glass of Gold, because you’re adults with luxurious tastes now, a significant other could come up in conversation. If they ask, remember that these are the people you can be the realest with, and they’ll accept the quick, close response of “I’m just doing me, right now.” Expand if you want, but they’ll give you the cool cousin glide pass.

The Grandparent Gavotte: Here’s a tricky one. You love these people, and you want them to see you at your best, always. They lure you in by doting on you, talking about your fancy job, and they tell you that your mom showed them pictures of your “cute” apartment on the iPad. Suddenly, the mood shifts. They think your apartment, full of reclaimed barn-wood and your most prized travel trinkets, is rather small for a family. All you can do from here is continue to sip your Midnight, see this dance through, and not mention that you’ve gone to great lengths not to have a child any time soon. Then, make your way to a fresh glass; you’ve earned it.
  
We hope you can use these steps to step up your Single Mingle Survival Dance. If all else fails, at least you’ve had some pretty stellar wines and delicious food.
