Sex & the Single Woman: All I Want for Christmas Is You

It seems like this Mariah Carey song has become the holiday anthem for both single gals and women in relationships alike. It’s simple and to the point– I was one thing for Christmas, and that is you.

While I can’t deny belting out the lyrics in hopes that a certain someone would sweep me under the mistletoe, this year I am taking a different approach to my holidays. I’m thankful that I have a family who cares about me so much, and who I can happily spend the holidays with.

Yes, it would be nice to share the holidays with a significant other, but I have a whole lifetime for that. If not this year, maybe next. Right now I’m going to enjoy seeing my sister, who is visiting from out of town, and my parents, who I don’t see quite enough.

But Santa, if you’re reading this, I want to let you know that I plan on being extra good next year. Start looking for my perfect man, please.

Happy holidays!
