Annnnnd now... here are some of my thoughts on surviving parties/events as a singleton.
Hmm... the first thing that comes to mind: OWN IT. I mean, we are single... we may be THAT person at the party, but really? Who cares?! There are many reasons we LOVE being single, so just try to remember those things when/if people go down the road of asking whyyyyy we are still single. Maybe come up with a few responses to say when people ask you about your dating life... like what? Hm, I am not too sure. Quick things like, "Oh, it's ok! I am really enjoying all the traveling I am doing right now!" or "I love my life right now, and I am trusting the Lord and His timing." or "It's none of your business, ok? Sheesh!"
Ok, maybe not the last one. ;) But, I think you get me.
Also... if things get awkward, just start asking people about themselves! People love talking about themselves... their job, their kids, they house. Whatever. It depends on if you know the crowd or not as to how specific you can be, but really, for anyone, turning the convo back to them will keep it going.
Be sure to wear something you feel comfortable in. There is nothing worse than going to a party, especially if you don't know that many people, wearing something cute, but super uncomfy. Pick out something that you love, and get some new accessories! You will already go to that party feeling confident, which will come across in conversation.
Have fun! Yes, it's nerve-racking to go to these things by ourselves, but it's nothing to get too worked up about. Enjoy being with your coworkers, family, etc. Because at some point, when we are in a committed relationship (or community), we may not always be able to attend such things. So enjoy it! Meet new people! And again, have fun!
