[AD | Sponsored Post] Forget Valentines Day! There’s something in the air this time of year that helps love blossom. My parent’s met in a bar this time 30 years ago! My boyfriend and I had our first date in December of 2016! There’s something special about the holiday season, so why not try one of these 10 fun New Year’s Eve activities to find love?
Join a dating site
There used to be a bit of shame in “resorting” to join a dating site, but those days are gone! Now joining a dating site, like WeLoveDates is hugely popular! It’s hard to find someone who wants the same things as you, which is what makes dating sites work because you can meet someone you’re compatible with straight away! Why not set up a New Year’s Eve date?
Play Beer Pong
Beer pong is played by throwing a ping-pong ball into the opposing team’s cups, and if the ball lands in, they have to drink. The first team, to get all the opponent’s cups wins. It’s often played at home with friends before going out, but some bars have their own beer pong tables! I got my first New Years’ kiss after making new friends playing beer pong, so it works!
Go to a Wine Bar
If you’re not a fan of beer pong, then you might prefer a classier night in a wine bar. Wine bar’s have such a romantic atmosphere that it’ll be hard not to swoon.
For most people, winter is the only time of year to go ice-skating so why not take advantage of the opportunity and take your friends for a fun ice-skating session. From taking a break with a nice cup of hot chocolate, or giggle-filled almost crashes, it’s an easy way to meet new people.
Troy and Gabriella gave us high New Year’s Eve expectations when they met NYE singing karaoke in High School Musical. It’s easy to make new friends at a karaoke bar, and a duet could bring you and your future partner together.
Not everyone wants a NYE that involves alcohol, which is why a pizza and bowling night is great! Why not take your friends and challenge others in the bowling rink to a game?
Go to a big countdown
If you live in a city that holds a big countdown, then take advantage of the opportunity as everyone will be out! The wait leaves plenty of time to get talking to new people!
Attend a “Come Dine with me Evening”
An easy way to meet someone is through friends or friends, or acquaintances. Host a dinner night akin to the show Come Dine With Me or attend someone elses. If everyone invites friends, you’ve a great chance to meet someone new!
Go to a gig
Some of the biggest local gigs of the year are held NYE. I used to leave gigs as a teenager with so many new friends, so as an adult, it shouldn’t be hard to strike up conversations with fellow music fans.
Go on a pub crawl
This season is notorious for pub crawls, broadening your horizons and trying a few new bars is a good idea! You might already know all the regulars of your local, so why not meet somewhere else’s regulars?
