TOP 10 Reasons it's better to be single for the holidays

1. No stressing over what "Mr. Man-Who-Has-Everything" might want for Christmas.

2. You can save A LOT OF MONEY since you only have to buy for your immediate family, and not his as well.

3. No waiting around in Best Buy for an adolescent salesman to explain the difference between X-Box and The Wii.

4. No spending December 25th, glued to the TV while your man sits like a zombie in front of his new "toy" you couldn't afford to buy him... but settled on because a sweater felt so insincere.

5. No arguing about why the Christmas lights weren't put away in a more "appropriate fashion." (You'll simply buy new ones if they are too tangled).

6. No exasperating encounters with the in-laws. You can avoid uncomfortable questions, poorly made ham, and the inevitable whining toddler.

7. You can buy yourself what you want with your extra "spending money" and not have to worry about feigning a smile when you open up the 14K gold locket you will never, ever wear.

8. If you burn the cookies, no one will know... and you know you'd rather just eat the dough anyway.

9. Holiday parties: You won't have to drag Scrooge along with you, so you can go and enjoy yourself solo, by impressing everyone with the myriad dresses you were able to afford (again... because you're single;)

10. GUILT FREE FLIRTING: The mistletoe holds a lot of promise for you as does "Santa's lap." Go out and ENJOY it before you're caught in a relationship void of PDAs.

i don't know who you've been dating but adults don't get hooked on the new video game. i traded in my nintendo in '98 for a life.

i sometimes wonder what would compel a person to write such a trivial, yet arrogant, comment like the one above.

there are many "adults" who play video games. perhaps YOU wouldn't consider them "adult", but since when did YOUR definition of "adult" become the standard by which we all should live by?

i think when you traded in that nintendo for a "life", you may have also acquired an ornery attitude in the exchange. i would work on dropping that. it makes you look foolish and bitter about the most inane things.

and no, i don't play video games. i just like to comment on the insignificant egoistical remarks of others... and i had nothing better to do in the last 10 minutes.
