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.
As 2020 has come to a close and we venture back into a Level 5 lockdown, singletons across the country are, once again, launched into a period of loneliness. Though the endless lockdowns have been lonely and lacklustre, Irish men are finally getting the opportunity to think about who they are and what they really want when it comes to finding a partner and there has been a phenomenal decrease in men who can’t make up their minds.
Although this is an important topic to discuss during every Christmas period, the events of 2020 make it much more topical this year. The COVID19 Pandemic has left the world in a state of confusion. It has forced the most extroverted people to avoid interaction, and the most introverted people to live in a constant state of loneliness. Although loneliness isn’t gendered, men in particular do tend to struggle. What are the facts and how can each of us help this Christmas?
