Yes and no. Yes, because NYE can be a lonely place when you don't have someone to canoodle with. Of course, you can try and wing New Year's Eve on your own, but as you may or may not know from past NYE disasters, it is sometimes not worth the crushing misery, disappointment, and emotional brutality. But then again... no. The great thing about being single during NYE is that you really don't need to worry about any of the above. That old adage "No woman, no cry" holds up pretty well here: if there is no-one to expect anything from, there is no disappointment. NYE on your own can be a truly liberating one -- but it may require liberating your sober mind from its lack of alcohol to some extent. Think you can just go to a party and pick the drunkest girl? Um, no. Don't do that. If you are going to be single at NYE, commit to it. Of course, if the opportunity for a bit of midnight lovin' comes your way, why not take it, but don't go around taking advantage of drunken revellers.
Actually, not very. Getting blind drunk is not as cool as it used to be, and certainly not as cheap. If you want to have fun on your own on NYE, then getting drunk is not really the way to go. Instead, find something that is already fun without the need for killing your brain cells, and if possible with some people who will help you have a good time, again without having to get wasted. Your liver will thank you, as will your bank balance. However, if you want to have a few drinks, then try your best to pace yourself. Agree on a drink limit and try to stick to it so that you do not end up getting totally legless. You won't have fun if you can't walk, see straight, or end up puking into a garbage can.
The last thing you need when you are very, very single on NYE is to hear from old flames. In fact, why haven't you blocked these guys yet? Yeah, they may be having a great time without you, and yeah they may have told you where they are going to be hanging out, and yeah, they have just casually dropped a hint that they are single, and yeah, they are actually kind of hot now that you come to think of it, and no, you can't remember why you split up, and no, you're not really doing anything especially tonight... Hmm.
The first thing that you need to do when you are trying to decide whether or not you are going to go out for New Year's Eve is to draw up a list of possible choices that you can pick from on both sides of the argument. There is definitely a case to be made either way, but how you are feeling on the night itself is really the deciding factor here. If you are feeling down about being single, your mood is all important, and it can really sway how you feel about the night ahead. Sure you could stay in, but what if you met someone tonight that would end up being a big part of your life? Or maybe if you went out you would feel so miserable at being single that you would just clam up, drink too much, and end up in tears? Both are equally possible, to which experience can attest. The best thing to do is to make a few vague plans and don't engineer your plans in such a way that makes people depend on your decision. Then you can easily leave it until the night itself to make your mind up one way or another.
Of course! Here's how. Make a list with your pals of which places and events you would most like to hit up this NYE. You could even limit your group to just those friends who are also single. This will help you to feel less bad about not having a date or significant other to hang out with. Plan events throughout the night -- maybe getting a meal, going to a house party, then heading out to a club.
In case you were wondering, there is actually no need to be in a relationship with anyone. Sure, there is that whole biological imperative to reproduce thing, but outside of sex and companionship, a long term relationship is a hard thing to get right, and a very easy thing to get wrong.
