Vibe's Top 5 tips for avoiding disappointment this New Year's Eve
IT goes without saying that everyone has experienced an at least mildly underwhelming New Year’s Eve, but you needn’t approach it with trepidation. Vibe’s got some tips to make sure you have a good night on the 31st.
Don’t expect to pull
You are not in a film and you are not in a slushy novel so don’t think the night is about finding that girl or guy to lock lips with at midnight.
While your chances of a fling probably are marginally better than normal, if she/he didn’t want to get off with you before New Year’s Eve she/he probably still doesn’t want to on New Year’s Eve. Getting fixated will only ruin the night.
Don’t get left out in the cold - have a plan and, ideally, tickets if you need them.
It’s pricier on the door and you don’t want to have to trek around dozens of bars to find one that will let you in.
Don’t overload your schedule - stopping by that party you don’t really want to go to will only leave you stranded there.
Know how you’re getting home, because hypothermia is not a great way to start 2014.
Don’t expect too much
Let’s be honest, New Year’s Eve is basically a rubbish Saturday night – expensive, overcrowded and it all ends earlier than usual. So why would you expect it to be the most memorable night of your life?
Drink the right amount
The hard-to-find happy medium between the carefree, life and soul of the party guy and the dancing on the tables, vomiting on the way to A and E guy.
Definitely NOT the crying in the stairwell guy. On that note, absolutely refrain from making resolutions or reflecting on what you haven’t achieved in the last year while drunk.
Wear comfortable shoes
Because blisters are not fun, nor is hearing you moan about them.
