Mentality of a single after holidays
It's those time of the year again. Yes, the holidays, the lonely nights, and the wishful thinking of reunions and possible get together amongst colleagues and dearest friends. The article I wrote almost a year ago dictates the mentality of a single during holidays, and now here is the mentality of a single after holidays with the repercussion which it brings, especially after you clumsily crashed into a party which you hardly knew anyone except the one inviting you. The nerve racking experience you had to endure while talking with strangers whom you had no association with and no commonality to strike a meaningful conversation. So, it is all worth the painful, cumbersome and stuttering introduction? Is the party in which no discernible conversation took place all worth it? What it comes down to is just a personal preference. Some people can endure the loneliness, the "virtual" online relationship, and intangible routine more than others. While some other people must need the physical nurture, proximity, and the sense of belonging as a proof of existence. If you are the either type then a sudden switch to the other will always cause confusion, annoyance and quite problematic. It's better to stick with one and continue on until the very end of time, but then again we are all human beings prone to mistakes and temptations. Eventually, we will learn from our mistakes, adjust and adapt to the optimum situation befitting our comfort. Eventually, we will prevail and either way we will continue on as nothing has happened after the holidays. So, go ahead, and enjoy the wonderful holidays ahead of us.
