Not Your Mother's Turkey Day - Tips for Singles to Avoid Being Seated at the Kids' Table
By: Hope Boulevard
Your meat and cheese plate does not have to look like a turkey – you don't want people to know you have that much time on your hands.
Don't channel the Kardashians – family situations are uncomfortable enough; your clothes shouldn't be, and grandma doesn't need to see your thong.
Save political arguments for another time -no donkeys or elephants were harmed during the first thanksgiving.
Only the bird should be stuffed – turkeys can't fly, and neither should the buttons on your pants.
If your host wants to say grace, allow it – don't take a knee, you are not Colin Kaepernick.
Speaking of football…
Don't be an armchair quarterback – you have yet to master even getting a date to bring to Thanksgiving dinner. Leave the game to the pros.
One guest = one take home plate – everyone knows you're single, don't pack up for a family of eight.
Skip the nap – use this time wisely to swipe right. Thanksgiving is the biggest drinking holiday and you are 137 percent more likely to get a second date if cocktails are involved.
Shower before Black Friday shopping – your soulmate may be in the dogpile in electronics section at Wal-Mart.
Pace yourself with the wine – you don't want a rep like your crazy uncle or give others the ammo as to why you are still single.
Bring a date next year – let the dinner conversation revolve around why your sister is not pregnant yet instead.
