Yesterday was Blue Monday, and although that usually means the most depressing time of year is finally over, some of you may be feeling a bit blue nonetheless. We are here to remind you that the end of January is in sight! The month of overeating and trying to get your steps in after putting on the Christmas pounds is coming to a close, and what better way to keep your tunnel vision in check than reminding yourself what’s in store in February… you guessed it, it’s Valentine’s Day! The time of year that pushes singles together better than your secondary school best friends at a first year disco.
With Christmas jingling its bells just around the corner, many single Irish men and women are unconsciously taking part in the annual Cuffing Season festivities. This time of year is centred primarily around singletons wearing their heart on their sleeve, desperately swiping on Tinder and Bumble to try lock in a partner to snuggle up with by the fire and kiss under the mistletoe. In light of the COVID19 Pandemic, where first dates are even more difficult to arrange, with strict safety regulations and restrictions across the country, we at Intro are keen to keep the spirit of the season alive!
Valentine’s Day is still an important date on the ‘romantic’ calendar. But in the cut and thrust of our hectic lifestyles, so many singletons find themselves just too busy to proactively search for love.
