I personally think NYE is such a paradoxical time in many ways, a big build up to what in effect is the Anti-Christmas, a month of scrimping, dieting, not drinking and/or going out! Also, it is a time of year that for me suffers from a very 'grass is greener on the other side' sort of way. Spending it alone is almost unthinkable (to me) , although this did occur one year where mentally I just wasn't in a place to go out. I have gone out clubbing alone the last 3 years running (friends are not interested in the whole NYE thing and spending it with parents/family feels like failure, even though it shouldn't!). Many people would find clubbing alone weird, although I am much happier than the average person to participate in experiences in my own company, as much as I of course enjoy any interaction etc although feel somewhat shy initiating it. The weird thing is, if out clubbing a part of you craves a night in with nibbles etc (with or without company.) Yet if at a house party you feel weirdly obligated to go out! Statistically of course the majority of people don't go 'out.' And of course, kids are too young to go out, those with kids will not go out, some people will be working etc! So..............What is your actual vs ideal New Years Eve?
