How to Find a Date for New Year's Eve

There's no shame in being single on New Year's Eve. But if you feel you must have a date, here's how to scrounge one up.

You will need

  • Determination
  • And boldness
  • A singles getaway weekend (optional)
  • And a holiday season job (optional)

Step 1 Get the word out Send an email to everyone in your address book asking if they know someone who might want to ring in the New Year with you, no strings attached.

Step 2 Book a singles getaway Book a singles getaway sometime in mid-December. You’ll meet plenty of other people anxious to connect—and there won’t be enough time for you to break up before New Year’s!

Step 3 Become a social butterfly Attend every holiday party that comes your way, even if you are: a) exhausted, b) not in the mood, c) positive it’s going to be a bore.

Step 4 Try internet dating Try internet dating. If you’re already a member of a service, find some new faces by taking advantage of free trials with their competitors in the weeks leading up to New Year’s.

Step 5 Attend a singles' party If all else fails, attend a singles’ party on New Year’s Eve. It might not be the intimate night you’d hoped for, but you just may find someone special to kiss at midnight.
