    Are you single and lonely this holiday season?

    What are you doing to keep your spirits up?

    Not this year, but have been many other years.  It did not affect my spirit though.  I saw nothing wrong with being single.

    Ironically, there are probably plenty of non-single people out there who are just as lonely as some of the single people out there.

    Happy to say I am not single this year, and will only be a little lonely, and only when I choose to be. As to what I am doing to keep my spirits up... not much. Letting them lie where they will this year, and taking the opportunity to look closely at them to see what the true story is.

    Good question. Thanks.

    I am single but i am not lonely. I have my friends to talk to and i actually prefer some peace and quite but when my brothers come home we usually have fun. Liek video games, tv, whatever we can find to do. That is what keeps my spirits up.

    Single yes and alone, at times lonely. I'm going to take things as they come. I have lots of good memories to think about and make plans to improve over the coming year. If I'm lucky I will get a few calls, texts or emails to help brighten the day.

    Nope, But if I were single I wouldn't be lonely.
    Another word for single is "FREE".

    You are free to spend time with family, friends, or take a tropical weekend getaway that caters to singles.

    Last but not least just about every single person has or knows someone  else who is single that they can hang out with.
    If push comes to shove there is always the "friends with benefits" option until you find Mr. Right.
