How did you feel when you woke up this morning? Blue Monday may be branded the most depressing day of the year, but that doesn’t mean you have to wallow in despair. Whether you’re in the midst of a breakup, your bank balance is feeling the pinch, or you’re feeling lonely on these cold winter nights, let’s take a look at why online dating is the solution to any or all of your January blues.
Boost your self esteem
January is the busiest month of the year for break ups and divorces. If you’re currently untwining yourself from an unhappy relationship, or you’ve recently split up with your partner, you may be feeling a little down in the dumps. By giving you the chance to flirt with likeminded singles, online dating can give your confidence a boost, so that you can start feeling good about yourself once more.
Combat lonely nights
For singles who have been in the dating game a bit longer, January can feel pretty lonely. As friends and family go into hibernation and other singletons lack the budget to wine and dine, the month can soon start to drag without any company. Online dating is the perfect way to pass the time on weeknights and lazy weekends, so that you don’t feel bored and lonely when you’re hanging out at home.
Dating on a shoestring
After the extravagance of December, funds are somewhat limited in January, which means swapping indulgent meals and nights out for catch up TV and microwave meals for one. How do you fill those long January nights when you’re living on a shoestring? Online dating is the answer. Free online dating sites mean you can while away the evenings chatting to local singles, without leaving the comfort of your sofa!
Stop stress in its tracks
If the source of your problems isn’t money itself, but the job that you’re in, it can feel like there’s no escape – even when you come home on a night. Of course, when you’re sat at home festering on the issue with no one to talk to, it can be hard to put your work life to one side.
With online dating, you can escape from reality for a few hours whilst you talk about brighter subjects. Who knows, you could even get a different perspective on life that will make you think differently about your career. Just don’t unburden your problems all at once – save the heart to heart for your Mum or best mate!
Whatever is getting you down this month, don’t let Blue Monday get the better of you. Escape your January blues by chatting to someone new and exciting, and you could find a smile on your face and a spring in your step before you know it.
