If New Year’s Eve and Valentine’s Day were in the same month, I think most people would commit suicide then. It’s too much pressure. You have to find the right party, the perfect outfit, a fabulous date. And then if you’re single, that dreaded midnight hour! Do you high-five someone? Hug a couple amidst their smooch? Pucker up and kiss that weirdo who’s been eying you all night? (Hint: NOT the last one!)
Frankly, there is no right answer. The best approach might be the most subtle – the NED (nervous eye dart). It’s such a classic and versatile move. You can pull it out in pretty much any uncomfortable situation, and if your life is anything like mine, you live somewhere between awkward, embarrassed and unbelievable. It’s exciting and dangerous. As an added bonus, if someone asks you what happened on NYE, you can just say it involved NED and you don’t want to talk about it. Instant mystery. You’re welcome.
Happy New Year!
