Who Will You Kiss on New Year’s Eve?
We are always told to not talk to strangers growing up, yet we seem to have no problem kissing them on New Year’s Eve every year. The big day is coming up, and if you are single, this thought has already dawned on you once or twice. While a New Year’s Eve kiss isn’t necessary, there is no shame in wanting one. The question is who?
There are a few ways you can go about this. For starters, the easiest way is to just enjoy your night and grab someone at the last second. As the countdown begins, lock eyes with someone cute and make your move. Everyone is in the holiday spirit. As long as you are both on the same page, you are good to go.
If you want to put in a little more time and effort, make a game of it and scout your midnight kiss from the start of the night. If you are at a bar or party, scope out the scene and chat\iit up with a few potential suitors. Maybe even exchange a few last 2019 kisses before the big one comes around. Once you are set on a person, keep them around until midnight and maybe even after if you are hitting it off.
Another idea is to go down the blind date route. Sure you usually hate this idea, but it is for a night and essentially one kiss if all goes wrong. Make sure whoever is setting you up knows your type and shares details if possible the night before. That way you can do your online creeping that we are all guilty of doing and get an idea of how the night might go.
Similarly, if you want to find your own date, you can simply pick a new person off a dating app. Meeting for the first time on New Year’s Eve is a bit aggressive, but if it doesn’t work out you never have to see them again. And if it does, that is a hell of a first date story.
End of story, you don’t need a New Year’s Eve kiss. But if you want one, don’t be ashamed of who you kiss at the end of the night. It doesn’t have to be a drop-dead model or someone exactly your type. All that matters is that you are attracted to them enough to bless them with your kiss and time for the night. Who you kiss doesn’t determine your 2020 — that is on you. So grab a random and make out. Take them home if you want to or don’t. Whatever you want to do is up to you. Enter 2020 on your terms without judgement from anyone else.
