Halloween: Great Opportunity to Meet Singles!

Halloween — The holiday of hiding your inhibitions behind a “mask.”  It’s no wonder people love this holiday — and why singles can more easily find love during this holiday.

I know people who are now engaged because of this holiday.  An opportunity for guys of all shapes and sizes to meet new people without the risk of “real” rejection.  If the girl walks away, it must have been the costume, right?

And girls, don’t tell me that you don’t savor the opportunity to wear the sexiest, most riske attire that you own for that evening — all in the quest of looking like the most authentic sexy nurse; or Batgirl;  or “I dream of Jeannie;”  or Tinkerbell;  Or Helga the Viking princess.   None of these characters ever looked sexier.  On this night alone, all ladies have a “pass” if our skirt is too short, enough cleavage is showing to be considered “intimidating,” and yes, you can get away with wearing that long, long mermaid wig and a cone shaped bra.  Or no bra.  There shall be no judgement on showing our sexuality on Halloween.  We all wake up on Nov. 1, still considered a “nice” girl, regardless of what we wore the previous evening.

But I’m not talking about just the “pick up,” I’m talking about a bona fide opportunity to find someone to start a relationship with.  So many times, I’ve seen that the only thing that REALLY gets in the way of meeting Mr. or Ms. “Right” is having the guts to start a conversation.  And to converse back.  And to give someone a chance to be real, and have fun with you.  Halloween takes down the barriers a bit.  I know that’s why the couple I know is getting married — they would never have met, if not for Halloween, because she would have been too, uh, well, “shy” to allow him into her conversation at a normal singles mixer.

The truth is that same “pass” that the ladies get on our attire that evening goes for men, too.  We give them a “pass” for talking to us, even if their look of the evening doesn’t have game.

Halloween is also a big night to meet your friends’-friends and extended network.  When normally you might be sitting around playing “Halo” or Wii with your immediate circle of friends, on Halloween you meet the next 3 degrees of separation from those friends, plus some out of town guests.  Now THAT’s an actual social networking opportunity!

Don’t miss it.  If you don’t have a Halloween party to go to, don’t fret — there’s one that I know of that is 100% singles, and another that I know of that is at least 40% singles (like the average bar, but with a MUCH bigger crowd).  Put on a costume, click the links below to find the one that’s right for you, and Seize the Night!

Let me know how you do 😉
