According to the Professional Matchmakers at Executive Search Dating, the answer is: absolutely!  Here are just a few reasons why the holidays can be a boon to your single life:
  1. The Christmas party season: the holiday season is THE peak season for home and office parties… get yourself invited to as many parties as you can, or throw a party yourself and ask your friends to invite some of their single friends.  Also, try tagging along to a friend’s office party.  This can be a great way to meet single professionals in a friendly environment that’s conducive to starting up a conversation.
  2. The year's best approach line: the holidays comes complete with the year’s best approach line: ‘Merry Christmas!’.  Use this can’t miss approach line at a Christmas party and you’ll be meeting new and interesting people in no time!  Like all good things, however, this approach line does have an expiry date, so put it to good use before the holidays are through.
  3. Great winter date ideas: the winter weather offers a couple of can’t miss date ideas for Vancouver singles: try and gondola ride up Grouse Mountain followed by an invigorating skate on the mountaintop Ice Skating Pond.  Cap it off with dinner, drinks and the best view in all of Vancouver at the Altitude Bistro.  Another Vancouver winter dating classic: a snow adventure day at Whistler Village. With the newly upgraded Sea-to-Sky highway, a Whistler day trip is much easier and safer then in years gone by.
