The holidays can be a tough time for a lot of people, especially single people, even if they don’t particularly celebrate any holidays. It’s a time of the year that is perfectly suited for couples, but singles, not so much. For many single folks out there, the holidays can represent a period of intense stress, and intense isolation.
Whether it’s questions from family and friends that all really boil down to “why are you still single” or just feeling a general sense of loneliness, it can be a tough time for a lot of people out there. I’ve been single for quite a few holiday seasons and let me tell you, it can be hard, even for me.
But don’t worry though, I’m here to help. Let’s talk about how to survive being single over the holidays.
Good Luck Out There.

p.s. I couldn’t find one specific resource for volunteering to spend time with elderly BUT, if you do a quick search for “Friendly visitor/visiting program” and add whatever city you live in, you’ll find a ton of resources.
