Online Dating With Muddy Matches At Christmas
Tuesday, December 10th, 2019
Christmas, the season of twinkling lights, starry skies and cosy nights… snuggling up in front of the fire, but with who? If you’re single or dating this Christmas-time, we’ve put together these tips to help you enjoy the festive season, with none of the pressure.
Arrange a festive date
We understand that Christmas isn’t a happy time for everyone, so arranging a festive date might give you a reason to look forward to the season and capture some of its magic for yourself. There are so many lovely, Christmassy date options out there; from a warming mulled wine in the pub to ice-skating at your local rink, wandering around your town’s Christmas market to having a crisp winter walk together. And, the good news is, you can arrange a short date, meaning that you can fit it in to even the most packed schedule of family, social and work commitments.
Say ‘Happy Christmas’
When you’ve been chatting to someone on Muddy Matches and conversation has gone a bit quiet, sending a swift ‘Merry Christmas’ message and enquiring about their Christmas plans could be just the thing to restart conversation. If you’re wondering whether there’s a spark there, why are you waiting to arrange a date? Meet for a quick coffee and you’ll know if there is a potential relationship in there. Sending a Merry Christmas message to people you’ve yet to start chatting with is also a great conversation opener, so what are you waiting for?
Don’t expect to get an instant reply
At Christmas time, people tend to get busy with festivities, so don’t worry if your countryside daters aren’t as responsive as usual. Although we have our mobile-friendly site, festive events aren’t the time when people will be online dating, so don’t get too impatient if they don’t reply.
Don’t be tempted to invite a new date to the office party of a friend’s festive do
Yep, so going to your office bash or your friend’s dinner party on your own (when there’s a very strong possibility that everyone else will be loved up in a couple), is not usually the most enticing of prospects, but that doesn’t mean it’s the right time to introduce your new partner. There’s a lot of noise, potentially a lot of drink and no real time for you to chat together. Go on your own, and introduce your partner in more sedate moments.
To gift or not to gift?
Whether or not you give your rural date a gift is your call, depending on whether you think you’re close enough and know each other well enough yet. We’ve got lots of ideas for last minute gift ideas here. But, in our muddy opinion, the best Christmas gift is your company! So, arrange that festive, countryside date under the mistletoe and get into that country loving vibe!
