There’s a frenzy leading up to the hours of the new year, and this tradition is partly to blame: the midnight kiss. On any given day, we couldn’t care less, so why is it important to lock lips with someone when the ball drops?
The tradition is founded on the belief that the kissers will be part of each other’s lives in the coming year. In real life, these smooches turn into one-time things—we don’t see the other person ever again.
But, if you play your cards right, this date may be more than a midnight kiss. So, what are the cards you’ll have to throw?
- Let go of all the ghosts and breadcrumbs
If you want this holiday date to work, you’ll have to say goodbye to all the ghosts and breadcrumbs of the past year. And this time, you’ll have to mean it.
Apart from the fact that your blossoming romance will require your undivided attention, these past encounters will only weigh you down. Give yourself a clean break and completely let go of the what if’s.
Before you define the relationship (a.k.a the talk), you should know you want out of it first. Are you dating with the prospect of having a committed relationship? In search of something much more sensual? Or did you just really wanted to have someone for a midnight kiss?
Knowing the exact outcome you want will help search faster. You get to zero in on the people who share the same goals and interests as you.
