Why It's Great To Be Single On Halloween [EXPERT]

What are YOU doing this Halloween?

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays ... not for the scary costumes and the macabre, but for the ability to be creative and interact with people in a fun and relaxed way. So, singles, find yourself a Halloween party to attend!

First, you have to find a costume. For women, I recommend a cute and sexy costume that's playful. A cute red devil or a black cat is always a crowd-pleaser. Men should find masculine, hunky costumes such as a super hero (you can show your muscles in your Captain America or Spiderman costume) or a debonair Count Dracula with his dramatic cape.

Then, you have to find a party (or two!) to attend. Go online to see if any meet-up groups you belong to are having any parties, or ask your friends if they know of any.

Next, try to have a fun prop that you can use as a conversation starter. For instance, as Spiderman, you may bring a net that looks like a web and cast it over a cute woman that you spot. Or if you are a sexy cat,  bring along a cat toy that engages other to play with you.

This holiday gives you a chance to show your playful and creative side. Also, you can push past your shy self and engage with another because you are all participating in this scintillating costume event.
