    Is anyone else spending the holidays alone? I don't think I'm going to do anything. I'm wondering what to do.

    (No pity party here.)

    Rejoice! Way less annoying than being surrounded by people that annoy you and have to pretend to be enjoying yourself. Just cook a ton of food and enjoy the vacation doing what you want to do.

    Thanks for the suggestions so far. Keep 'em coming.

    I should have mentioned that everyone I know has other plans. Usually, I'd have someone to visit or to come over to my place.

    Hey DIN! Anyone you can call to come over or hang out? Even if it's a small group of people? How about calling them to see if you can join their plans if not out of town?

    I agree with OneSongGlory. I have to travel to 2 cities on Xmas day, deal with bf's siblings (one is really annoying) and then to my family where I have to deal with my sister's in-laws. It's going to be a long day and I'm really not looking forward to it. I just want to chill and watch the Mickey Christmas Parade on TV. icon_razz.gif

    It falls on a weekday so not really much to do on a weekday. Might be a good day to go for a run or bicycling. Or zone out and watch TV all day. Write a book.

    I'm a bit jaded myself...locally I haven't gotten invited to a single Christmas party. Last year I got invited to 2, although they were more of sit in front of a fire and eat type of thing/first date. Was fun...

    This time of year always makes me on edge because you never know who's going to be around...And my huge Christmas gatherings with family in Miami is just a memory of years past. Everybody is grown up, relatives have gotten ill/older.

    So pretty much every Christmas leaves me wondering if I'll have anything going on or not. I decided staying in town would be far too depressing...so I'm off to Phoenix tomorrow. Don't know anybody there, but atleast I'll feel like I've done something.

    Those guys don't be looking to meet. Most of them be sitting around just killing time on that app. I thought signing up for Grindr would finally help me get a decent social circle going. 3 months later I'm still spending holidays alone or with the same jerkoff friends that I really don't care to be around.

    And then when I have met them, it's like what? Who are you? I'll be damned to spend an entire holiday bullshitting.

    My first Christmas alone was kind of sad.
    The rest were a breeze.
    Alone doesn't have to be lonely.
    But, I'm easily entertained: read books, play around on the computer, put on some Christmas music, do crossword puzzles, eat. LOL.

    This year I'm lucky to be going out to dinner with a couple of friends.

    Spent the weekend doing the local part of my family's Christmas. Just me and the girls today and it feels like heaven.....quiet, empty house.. no errands to run...no social commitments....nobody pissing me off or asking me anything....Christmas gift, extraordinaire.

    Yes! The guy I'm dating on and off is away, (thank goodness), and my parents left for their annual 6 week trip. So it's just me and the "kids!" YAY!

    Will be catching up on a ton of stuff on the DVR and Netflix. icon_cool.gif

    DIN, I know what you are going through. I have spent every Christmas of my life in a situation I did not want--either alone or with others that didn't want me there.

    Tomorrow, I'm going to read, make dinner for myself, cry a little, and clean my place. That's it. There will be no TV, no music, no RJ, no nothing. I'll go to bed early in anticipation of getting to work Wednesday morning.

    That's mine. The plans you mentioned for yourself sound great.

    In similar situation here. Alone for holidays but I really don't mind.
